Sweet! Awesome post.

Notice the upgraded sound system IS Logic 7, there's been a big debate in one of the other threads in Audio & Video about that..

Strange - you guys get so many more exterior color choices. I wonder how they determine which colors to make available in each country?

VW doesn't include headlight washers on their Canadian models, apparently because the washer fluid stains the 3M film (or Xpel or whatever) a lot of us put on our cars. Thats what they told me anyways, I think I could believe that but who knows...

I just noticed the Castrol thing, and by stupid, I meant it was probably an insignificant observation on my part.. but I thought it was cool in that it might put a stamp to "what oil is best" arguments.

Got it.
Sorry, I should have read it closer. I think after reading posts all day, the brain starts to fade at the end.

Looks like the leather shift knob is also missing from the M Sport Package.

WTF!?

The only interior trims available for the 135i are the two wood grains!?

THAT SUCKS!

Cashmere Silver and Black High Gloss and only available on the 128i according to this.

What's that about!?

This brochure is total BS.
The BMW Canada product planning bulletin (posted elsewhere on the Canadian forum) clearly has Aluminum Glazier silver as an optional trim on the 135i (with M sport option).

That's what I thought too.

Was just surprised to see otherwise in this material.

The print date is November 2007, so the product planning bulletin is probably more authoritative in some respects. The brochure does shed some light on some aspects of the car though. Perhaps the unveiling on Saturday will enlighten further ...

I picked up a copy today at the dealer. Strange that they were printed in November and they are only getting to dealers now. They weren't even available at the autshow a couple of weeks ago.
