Looks smart, that colour combo really looks good!

What options did you go for?

Thanks! I was a bit concerned that the red detailing from the sports package would clash with the blue exterior. But the only thing that bothers me is that the key is red.

I picked together a bit of this and that. The list I have is in Swedish, but hopefully the translations aren't way off:
  • Sport Line
  • Visibility package
  • Drive Comfort package
  • Tinted rear windows, and gray top on windshield
  • Xenons
  • HK audio
  • Extended instrument cluster
  • M Sport chassi
  • Bluetooth professional

I also added some mudflaps for the sake of both my own and others paint work. Fortunately they didn't stand out as much as I feared.

Overall, extremely happy right now. Still haven't discovered half of what this thing can do.

Congrats with the new Beamer! How is the M sport suspension? I did not opt for it because of the lower back problems why wife has and I thought it would be a too firm ride.

I'm very pleased with the suspension so far. It has a good balance between giving you a nice feel for the road, and still hiding the worst bumps. If anything, I'd say it might still be too soft. We'll see once the snow arrives.

I was thinking this today, the suspension is almost too soft.

And the car lifts quite badly when pulling off quickly. I'm hoping this'll change as the suspension wears in, the car only has 360 miles on the clock

I uploaded a bunch of pictures to the garage, where you can see both the interior and more of the exterior.

Nice pictures. This colour 'Tiefseeblau' was actually my wife's choice...
