Thankyou for correctly typing "sought"!

If you have an hour or two to while away you can play around with this database - with that dash trim and a manual gearbox it might be rarer than 1 in 9!

Link:- http://perso.numericable.fr/tonyz4c/index30si.html
Z4 3.0Si Sport - Coupe for added stiffness!
Current - Montego Blue, Pearl Grey, Cirrus trim & 295s. Cruise, Storage and pdc. E90 330i as a DD.
Gone - Ruby Black, Pearl Grey & 135Ms. Xenons, heated seats and Professional speakers.

Beautiful. In the USA, that would have been unobtainium. Despite the cars being born here, our interior options were extremely limited compared to other markets:

Interiors - black, Imola, light sepang, dark sepang - extended leather available in some of those
Dash - carbon leather, brushed aluminum, madeira wood

That's it. Also no parking sensors available, and no Individual program, hence fewer exterior colors possible. Cruise was optional, but most often purchased as part of Premium package - cruise, Carver HiFi, storage package, power seats, auto-dimming ("anti-dazzle") rearview mirror, BMW Assist (Telematics) w/Bluetooth. We really got the shaft. :evil:

Well maybe - I bet you got them much cheaper than we did!

A mate of mine in the motor trade said manufacturers used to call the UK "Treasure Island". :lol:
