Preparing to order 116i

Hello everyone!!

I am a new at the forum and I have found a lot of very useful things here. Probably I will place an order for my first BMW next week. I was wondering if you could assist me on the equipment that I am planing to order. This is approximately equipment in my budget:

BMW F20 116i - 5 drs.
- Multi-function controls for the steering wheel
- Sport leather steering wheel
- Runflat tyres
- "star spoke 377" wheels
- Interior brushed aluminium
- Armrest, front, sliding
- Xenon lights with headlight wash
- Rear PDC
- Fog lights
- Automatic air cond.
- Additional 12V socket
- Radio BMW Professional
- Hi-Fi sound system
- Full black panel display
- Hands free with USB (6NH)
- Cloth "Move"
- Uni color (black)

Do you have any suggestion, should I switch something else from the above with something new? I was looking at the Sport Line equipment, but I don't like inside decorations in red, esspecially red stitches on the wheel. As I can see all red elements can be changed, but don't know for the wheel.

Hello and welcome!

You can check out the following:

- Variable Sport steering (do a test drive before you decide)
- Headlining anthracite (including pillars - if you like a black coloured interior)
- Light package

As far as I know, it's true... The red stitching on the wheel is the only red detail that you cannot change in Sport Line. All the others (seats, interior trim) can be changed from red to aluminum-silver.

Harman/Kardon. It's worth much more than it costs.

Very good specs...! you may also consider:

- Professional CD (with iDrive and small screen)
- Professional Hi-Fi or HK Hi-Fi
- Light Package (very useful and not very expensive)
- Auto dimming mirrors and auto folding

Upgrade to extended Bluetooth. It's worth it.

You get this:

A2DP Bluetooth profile support, for Music over Bluetooth
Voice control
Album covers
Telematics (6NL only)

Thanks everyone. I will probably take Hi-Fi & previously written specs. I have just came from the dealer, and this configuration is in my budget. Btw, BMW proffesional with iDrive is regular equipment in my country (with smaller screen). You don't have to pay additionaly.

Why runfalts?

It rides nicer and handles better without them.

Sports Seats are fairly cheap in the UK and well worth the extra. Don't know the price in your market though.

They come with the car, I don't know why and I don't know if there is a possibility to order without them. Their price is 0,00. Sport seats are about 500,00 EUR

OK, in the UK on cars with 16" wheels (Or M135i ) you have a choice of non runflats or runflats.

I love my 116i sport it's amazing it's crimson red with red stitching and red piping and mudflaps. The only option I can think of is Xeon lights and sat nav. Other than that I love it!!
