Thank you, everyone. Just this once, I'm not going to put up pictures until they're really awesome, or until I've given up trying to click great pictures. Sunday should be the day I get about to doing this, hopefully. And yes, it's the CorpEd.

I'll cover these in the write-up. And no, Indra from Goa beat me to it, his is the first CorpEd on the forum. What a sweet looker his ride is, too! I couldn't convince the folks to get the white.

Congrats Flyingspur. The 3 series is a legend and the CE is superb value for money.

I think the CE has what BMW called leatherette in the US
HID kits can probably fitted aftermarket. Not bi-xenon
16s will give you better ride for Indian roads.
If you dont use a sunroof, then why bother
If one person is driving most of the time, then electric seats wont be missed.

What brand tires does it come with?

The E90 chassis is a really well balanced chassis like the older E46 so it won't disappoint on the corners as well. Take it to the ghats and you'll love the grip!
