Sorry about the large photo but I couldn't figure out how to make it smaller.

It looks as though the F30 has a wider trunk at the back (indentations on both sides). It states that the trunk is about one extra cubic foot. Will this allow a set of golf clubs (with or without the driver) to fit across the back instead of being on an angle? I believe the previous version didn't have the indentations on both sides.

I'm thinking more of a larger cart bag (Sun Mountain Synch or C-130). I use a push cart (which I'll also need room for). Too old to carry.

hmmmmm...they offer an option where the rear seats fold flat for more storage...$475. Sounds like something you should consider.

Just noticed you are in canada...im sure there is a similar option for canada.

I realize that I could do it with the seats lowered but I'm trying to get an answer from someone who has actually seen the new 328i to determine if the golf bag will fit across the back because of the change at the back. I leave my clubs in the trunk all summer so I can't have the back seats down. It's a deal breaker for me. I have a 2002 Passat that handles my clubs.

I'm sorry it seems like I cut you off. I appreciate the comments but I've already checked the forums about golf bags and have seen your comments about getting the Hoofer bag in the trunk. I'm just hoping that the new trunk design handles my current bag without having to go to a carry bag.

I'm also looking at the Mineral Grey, 6 speed but with X-Drive (live in Canada)

Mineral grey looks great, that with the red leather seats will be a real nice color combo.

I want to know if the F30 335i Msport 4-pot calipers will be a direct swap with the E90 335i?

Do you need the Technology package to use Bluetooth audio? What about the Ipod or USB? This is a gray area.

I could do without Technology package, BMW APPS, BMW Assist, etc, as long as I could use Bluetooth audio from my Iphone. Is the Ipod Cable included now? Im a bit confused.

if you are getting sport seats- had manual in both my 1 series and e46, yes, you will find a comfortable position. if not sport seats, no they are awful- at least to me

Found this on wikipedia about the harmon kardon sound system
" Harman Kardon sound system with 16 speakers and 600 watts output power is available as well."

damn, 16 speakers...600 watts...awesome

Option 6NH - Handsfree kit with USB interface - is now standard for 328i/335i in US... but it's not clear if this supports the A2DP profile for music.
Option 6NF - Music Interface for Smartphones is also in the German document, but is not shown as an option in the US listings I have seen.
In addition, there is 6NR - BMW Apps, and 6NL - BMW Assist
BMW Assist (6NL) and Nav/Tech Package (ZTP) are required to get BMW Apps (6NR)

I am pretty sure you can use the iPod USB cable for music without any extra options, but not sure about Bluetooth via A2DP, but I sure hope so since that would enable Android phones as well.

BMW Apps adds special app display from iOS devices, like Web Radio, Facebook, Twitter, iPod, Pandora functions.

Does the F30(328i) specifically display the MPH digitally in the info display near the speedo? Audi and MB does this and its a nice little feature.

Hopefully you all can tolerate a newbie's questions.

I just recently joined the family as I got a 2012 335 is convertible this week. Love everything about it!

i am confused as heck by the E and F designators (are they Euro-based?) and how they apply to my car. I was originally looking at a 2011 model (E93?) but a 2012 appeared at my dealer and I grabbed it. Between the competing model designators and apparent staggered model years of the BMWs, I am not sure where my car fits in.

What is the definition of an F30? The future mid-year 2012s? I can tell that mine does not have the design changes that I've read about. Thanks for any links to a cross-reference of models so I can catch up in my education.

"F" is the new body style..."E" is the current body style. F30 is the new sedan, coming out feb 2012
