  • 17" Style 380 Y-spoke alloys
    Brushed Aluminium trim with gloss black finisher
    Driver comfort package (Servotronic, F+R PDC)
    Interior comfort package
    Visibility package
    BMW Live
    DAB digital radio
    harman/kardon Hi-Fi
    Ext. mirrors - folding, auto dimming
    Seat heating
    Sport steering wheel
    Through-loading system
    Black panel display
    Park Assist
    Reversing camera

The build is scheduled for early August with delivery (hopefully) in early September.

Lastly, a thank you to everyone for the wealth of information available on this site, it's been a great help!

Welcome! Nice color & specs. I do not see the sport seats on your option list. These seats are really perfect so be wise and add them to your option list

I've tried both seat types and I actually found the standard seats to be more comfortable, hence choosing SE over Sport. The sport seats felt a bit too huggy, even with the bolsters deflated. They are indeed excellent seats, just not for my body!

I've still got a week to wait until I can take delivery so I'm trying to suppress my excitement for now...

Just plain brown but still a exotic colour on a F20!
I like it!
