update ex Trivett ".......The vessel is due to dock into the country on the 2nd of April give or take a day or two. So you should be driving your new 1M at the latest end of April"

so when should I realistically expect to take delivery?

Def and it won't be too long before we could organise another NSW and ACT meet, with more 1Ms this time.

This is the latest on my 1M as of today.

"The ship should dock on the 11th of April. That should mean we will have it here somewhere around the 23rd"




Jaffa looks like ours might be on the same boat.

sounds good mate somehow the last 8 months have passed by rather quickly. As I'm starting a new job soon, this last month would go by even faster. works out pretty well i think.

Add me to the list

Thought I would introduce myself now I have a delivery date for my VO 1M arriving in Port Botany on the 11th April bound for the ACT.
Not sure how many we have here, I have seen one other.

Cheers

Welcome! There are a few of them cropping up, especially in the VO. Excellent purchase!

Welcome mate!

Interesting that its landing in port botany... I thought the Sydney and majority of ACT bound cars were arriving through port kembla.

Hey guys,

Great to see so many M-enthusiasts on here from Oz!

So I dont post on here often, but im a massive young M-fan...

Conveniently, ive been offered a spot allocation for the 1m...after being told there were none left, and consequently just buying a 2012 135i dct - I was thoroughly impressed with how well the n55 and dct marry... particularly with the bmw performance tune ... thinknig n55 sounds so much nicer than the old n54 ...

My previous cars were an e92 and a tuned 135i (N54) prior to that...

Im tossing up whether I should still opt for the 1m....Everyone tells me the 1m is all about the chassis and composure...coming from the m3, I can relate to what they mean, as the m3 had a more compliant ride than pretty much any car I drove prior, and it would remain composed on rubbish b-roads, while this new 135i would be DSC-ing like crazy

Do you guys think id be stupid to sell my new 135i...its literally got 500km on the clock haha!.... maybe I should just wait for the next 3/4 coupe or m3? I take clients in my car and often wonder whether a manual gives too much of a boy racer impression...is the 1M really worth it, as this dct is pretty damn practical ?

Thanks guys!

I'd maybe consider starting a new thread to avoid a

If you're not worried about the change over price my advice would be to go for it. The 1M is much better out of the box and if you drive the car enthusiastically you will get the most out of it.

My question is why did you sell a tuned N54 135i and buy a 2012 N55 DCT later? What mods were on your previous 135i? Also was the E92 the m3 you speak of?

Welcome Nelix, there are a few 1M's in Canberra, ours being one of them. There are two in AW, and at least one in VO.

I assume you are getting the car locally, assuming so it will come into Port Kembla for sure (as do all NSW and ACT cars).

We have had ours now for almost 9 months and 15000+ kms and still love it!

Bmw86, I tend to get quite ancy with my cars and like to swap them around every 1-2 years... So the n54 135i had a 3/4 hitek exhaust with CSL tips...done here in sydney...with a cf diffuser, procede V4, afe cone intake and some non-rft ... was still a street car, so I didnt want to do the suspension. The M3 was a stock manual space grey coupe...but unfortunately someone smashed into it whilst parked in paddington, and it was a write off ! ...so I took the payout and got a cheaper car...the 335i I found too boring, so opted with the 135i and dct...

Sorry for threadjacking your post guys!
