One big error- they state that you need the tech package to get bluetooth. Bluetooth is standard, but you need the tech package to get bluetooth audio streaming. Would be nice if they fixed that.

Another error: "Sport Line package (handsome 18-inch wheels, leather-clad sport seats and black trimmings) for $1,900" does not include leather, though does include sport seats.

The error is on BMWs page:
Nevada Leather upholstery with contrast piping

However, if you select it, it adds $1,450 to the price. In a couple of states I am pretty sure they would be obliged to deliver the advertised included leather seats.

As for the handsome wheels, well, it comes with handsome 18" wheels even without the Sports package. A choice between the 320 and 323 wheels at no cost.

Not in the US, at least. You can get 17", but have to order and buy them separately.

I believe the standard, no-line wheels are 17s. The article is referring to Sport-line.

Your quote says comes with handsome 18" wheels "even without Sports package". Base model is 17" wheels.

Only for the 28i, not the 35i.
Check out the standard features of the 35i.
Note:
"Star Spoke (Style 320) 18 x 8.0 light alloy wheels and 225/45 run-flat all-season tires"

Then go to the configuration page for a no-line. Click options, and the first option is:
"18" Light-alloy wheels (Style 323) with performance run flat tires"
Price: $0

So not only do you get 18" wheels without choosing the Sports line, but you have two different kinds to choose from.
