Thanks everyone for the comments!

Also, I wanted to note a few things:

1. The Glacier Aluminium is NOT bad at all (because I know I personally was opposed to it at first).

2. The interior 135is plaque is not as obnoxious in real life as it looks in pictures.

3. The blue stitching is a MUST.

4. Harman/Kardon is great, i.e. worth it, for those of you who were wondering.

5. Did not receive: All black grille or steel petals (WTF?).

Yeah you should have received the Steel Pedals for sure.. Also on the site it states they the car comes with black chrome plated exhaust tips. The pictures from the site also show the Blackline LCI tail lights. My 135is is currently at the port just waiting to see what is missing on it..

Do you think the 6 cylinder 128i will lose its value or gain when the 4 cylinder turbos hit?

Hard to say, but the BMW inline 6 is legendary. Incredible that the 128 has the same HP as the E36 M3 I had in the past. I don't think the 4 cylinder will ever be as smooth, but will be able to make a lot of power. The 6 in the 128 has been very reliable for the most part, no one knows about the new 4 yet.

Would the 128i 6 cylinder last someone maybe 8-10 years? I'm nice to my cars, I don't put more than 10k miles a year, and I do the oil changes and maintenance when required. I wouldn't track it or anything. Just wondering how reliable it is for those that have them, do you love the car? Would you ever get another one?

the 240hp m3 was HEAVILY detuned, the proper 3.0 M3 had 282hp and the 3.2 had 320hp (still only 240 in the US, ew)

easily, mine is ~6 years old now and has absolutely no issues.

i wish it was more modifiable personally (engine wise, 1ers take all the m-suspension stuff lol), but it's quick enough (and the 128's are more modifiable up to the proper 270hp spec easily) and fuel efficient as

Looks like the Pedals are only 6MT, the DCT only gets the metal foot rest... I looked back at the photos on the press release and your footwell looks the same... the grill on the press release photos also looks the same. Very curious about the exhaust tips as they clearly look different than the photo in the release.

Hi all. I ordered a 135 back in late July. Waiting on it to get here too. Sooner the better. Been mulling around the forum for some time. Nice to see so many enthusiasts for the car. Last I checked my car was due next week in brunswick.

Well this sucks. I just found out today that my car is delayed at the port because something got damaged. From what my sales manager and I can tell from the info thru our systems it was either a rim or tire that got damaged. Won't know which till its fixed and we get the car from the port with the repairs done already. It was supposed to ship today but now doesn't list the ship date until the 25th

Yea I just wish it was here. I'm eager to see my car in person in carbon black. I just hope that this is the last hiccup in the process and that from here on it'll be smooth sailing.
