Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated,
- which options should I go with?

I already picked everything out but wanted to get some feeedback from the e46 community before i finalized the order.

Thank you in advance for all of your feedback

Ive used ventilated seats and they just make you feel like you wet yourself after a while

Well, there are times that I kinda sweaty on my back while driving cause I'm a bit of a sweater when it gets warm. Vented seats would be awesome for that.

Oh also, heated steering wheel. Get it. It's like sex in your hands for winter. I'm not sure what your budget is, but I'd get nearly every option BMW had to offer if I were in the market for a new bimmer I'm gonna get an F3x (hopefully M3) in a couple of years, and I totally plan on getting nearly every option.

I once sat in a customers Lexus. She had left the ventilated seats on. After that awkward moment where I thought I had peed my pants had passed, I began to enjoy them.

Carbon black metallic/black interior. Red interiors usually lower the resale value of a car.

Very nice. The new third generation is by far the best looking 6 series ever. However, almost 4,300 lbs. is still much to heavy. GL and please post pics when she's delivered! Cheers.

Hmm, 4 posts in nearly 7 years on this forum - clearly you don't spend much time around here. Do you really think this forum knows anything about a 2012 6 series? No, they don't. Maybe a few people, but rest have no f*cking idea, regardless of what they post.

By the time you option a new 650i and pay taxes, figure 100K. Is a 650i the best car for a 100k? Only you can answer that. Hell, you can buy a 2 year old M3 for about half that if you look hard enough.

There is no premium or sport package for a 2012 650i. Just don't post if you don't know what you're talking about....
