I felt the same about ordering my alpine white interior trim and then wished I didn't until I saw it in person. Now I'm so glad I did as its stunning in person and not very common by far. I was however to chicken shit to order oyster interior for the fear of it getting to dirty and not looking good up against alpine white exterior sense it's pure white and oyster Isent. Still wish I had sometimes though. BTW took my car in to have the oil changed after break in. Maybe it's a placebo in our heads but I feel mine is smoother now also. I didn't have the diff or tranny fluid changed like you though. It was hard enough just co communicate to them that I wanted the oil changed but not to reset the service indicator lol. If I spoke the language I could have gotten it accross better but oh well.
I just couldn't get over not really knowing if I could live with Blue for a while. I also really wanted coral red interior but to me the BWM looks better with black.

It really is an amazing color, and the picture captures it fairly well, but most pictures don't do it any justice compared to how it actually looks.
Yea it's incredible in person, especially on the accentuated lines/surfaces of the 135i. Actually it was a BWM 135i that first gave me the real itch for this car. Used to see it on the turnpike all the time.

Does that make my car a 135iS ??
Probably just the dealer's way to differentiate M-sport.
