I caved...

and decided to add the Sport Pkg on my 128 order. I can't justify buying a car for its performance and then not get the sport seats/sport suspension.

So now we're at:

6MT/Jet blk/Lt Burl/Boston blk/Sprt/Prem/xenon/prem hifi/iPod/heated


CA just confirmed we made the June build. Now, six weeks of trying to think about other things.

Good decision. The seats alone are worth the cost.

Absolutely, GREAT call!

You're thinking is right on. If you really want the "sport" in "sport coupe", you need that suspension and tires, and as it's been said, the seats are awesome.

Good choice! No BMW should be ordered without the sport package unless you drive like a grandma.

lol It's really not caving when you decide to get the sport package. It's being irrational when you decide not to!!

I have a 128i convertible on order - to be completed June 3rd - and one of the two options I bought was the sport package (the other was the walnut interior trim). I like the looks of the wheels but did not really want "performance tires". I also would prefer to be able to rotate front to back. What I really wanted was the seats. I like the looks and I also think they are more appropriate for a sporty car. The shadowline trim I could go either way on. I did not drive enough "with and without" to have a good feel for how important any suspension recalibration is but my longest test drive was in one with the sport package and I really liked the feel. It still rode nice and smooth but felt planted in the corners.

I love my 128i and the sport package is well worth it. The seats are awesome, and the upgraded suspension is also great.

Grats!

6MT / AW / SPORTZ / PREM / PREM SND

Welcome to the sports club lol

I test drove a 1er w/ out the sportz package and then test drove one w/ sportz package. I noticed a difference almost immediatley on those turns.
