Everything in this car is in harmony from the shifter that snicks into gear to the razor sharp precision of the steering wheel to the sport seats with adjustable bolsters that hold you in place. If you exercise restraint when ordering (and don't mind the wait) this car is actually a bargain. I got an 08' 135i AW w/6sp and sport package. Everything from Xenon adaptive lighting to rain sensing wipers are standard. It comes with a lot of feature content for the money. The ride is stiff but well damped, it is amazing how well BMW pulls this off. Everything in a BMW revolves around the engine and what an engine it is. There is power in every gear at every RPM.
Sport seats and steering wheel. The wheel alone is worth the price of the sport package. Adaptive headlamps, rain sensing wiper, 18" wheels & tires, and the shifter.
Cupholders are a little useless...but c'mon if that's the worst thing that could be said about it, the car is a 10.
