I first also missed these on my 2013 335xi because I had them on my 2008 335xi but I now prefer not having them because my legs (I am 6'2") would sometimes brush against the netting on my 2008 335xi and now there is just the smooth back of the front seat on my 2013 335xi. The back of the 2013 F30 front seats seem to be more recessed also allowing for more knee room for the back seat passengers

Interesting! Never looked at it that way!

Thanks, I'm a bit puzzled when I look at the pricing as to why the Sport line costs $1500 more than the Modern and Luxury line on the 328i - other than the sport seats I'm not really seeing the difference.

in my eyes you get "better seats"(i find them uncomfortable because im on the fat scale, but thats just me), some more appealing trim, rims, and the sport+ system which i have no idea what the difference is compared to sport (even my sales guy couldnt tell me the difference) i think sport+ is just a software that MAYBE someone will be able to code into our non sport line cars in the future though.

Are you sure that the 10mm you are talking about is now an x-drive vs non x-drive things instead?

Just looking through the BMW configurator and having selected a 328 sportline, I see no place where I can select a $500 sport suspension on the xdrive model.

Just checked again and the RWD model does have a $400 sport suspension option. X-drive does not!

Too many freaking combinations. I wish BMW would clean this up. and to top it off, the Canadian BMW configurator website is god aweful!

Nope, everything is still missing. Seems to be status quo for 2014 Canadian F30's.

Can't believe I only have ONE ciggy 12V jack.

This drives me crazy. Why the US models get multiple outlets and we only get one makes no sense.

2012 models don't get the Auto Start Stop indicator like the 2013+ models on the instrument cluster.

That's 1 of the reasons I stayed away from xdrive

Agreed. The US site is simply slow. The Canadian site really needs work. BMW Canada is getting ripped off by their web developer. The site sucks on my mobile as well. Mobile phones and tablets make up about 60% of web browsers these days. A working mobile friendly site is essential these days.

2014 sportline gets the sports suspension standard. Also 2014 lowered the price of the 328i RWD to take the MT price out.

Of course I got a '13 and paid for an automatic that I don't use (have a MT) and no sports suspension.

The latest java finally works on Mac computers so no more cursing at the screen
