That said, up until a couple of weeks ago, I had an E92 coupe.
OK, so what are you driving now, S5 ?

FN...no...still driving the S4. Sold the F32. Long story that's boring, but the S4 is now in my name.

Is it possible to order a new 3-series with the options one wants? What is the wait involved from when the order is placed until delivery? Thanks in advance!

Actually, it's pretty easy to spec and order exactly what you want.
Go here and configure what you want.
Once getting the car exactly the way you want, take a printout to your dealer, haggle with them. Have them order the car. Depending on the allocation they have in approx 6-8 weeks you'll have your car in your garage.

Just what I wanted to hear. The 3-Series can get pricy quickly with too many options and here in MN they are almost all XDrive/automatics. Thanks!

A few test drives on Saturday...
Went to my BMW dealer so I could compare a 328 and 335 back to back. Drove identically equipped Sport Line cars. Impressions are below:
* Auto Start/Stop on the 328i is just annoying enough that I would disable it everytime. A definite shudder when the car restarts.
* Fit and finish of both are still stellar. I didn't detect any down grading of interior materials on either one.
* The turbo 4 in the 328 is surprisingly smooth and powerful. Very little turbo lag.
* The new electric power steering on both is noticeably lighter. Even in sport mode it felt very light. One would have to decide for themselves if this is a good or bad thing.
* The TT I-6 in the 335i is awesome. Period. End of story. Is it worth the premium over the 328? TBD.
Since I am a current BMW lessee I am eligible for a pull ahead and that makes either of these pretty attractive.
Still need to drive an A4 and CTS.
