The Fat Lady is Singing

Checked the logistics site and the 1M count remains 301.

Looks like it's really finished.

Build date was 26th June, arrived in the country on the 22nd August and it has taken two dealers battling out the $ to finally get it released.

Trading in a E60 M5 V10, so am looking forward to some TT power and flick able sideways action!

Enjoy your car, but be careful with the sideways action. . Make sure you have plenty of room to play until you know how it behaves.

Congratulations, I know they're very different cars, but I'd be very interested in hearing your thoughts on the two cars.

A friend of mine is thinking of picking up an E60 M5, I've never been in one so can't comment, other than they sound fantastic.

Collected the car today. Out for a drive tonight.

Main difference between the M5 is that the power delivery is pretty much instant with help from the turbo's instead of having to get the car going to enjoy the power.

Obviously the size and the nimble set up of the 1M is more beneficial over the M5.

Manual box is much better than the single sequential clutch of the M5 (old tech these days)

Just need to work out how to post photos of the new family member up on here.

Will do mate. I use to ride Motor bikes and you would also use the gentle nod of the head to acknowledge fellow motor cyclist.

Due to the rarity of these cars, i think we should create a 1M acknowledgement signal.

How about a dukes of hazard attempt at horn blowing....

Your dad has great taste!!! I saw a new black m5 behind me in traffic, they look so much more aggressive in person (the new headlights look mean especially on black). Both nice cars, well done!

I got back from a quick trip to the shops this afternoon and now I'm getting a high pitch beep whenever I lock/unlock the car from the outside. It sounds a bit like an electric motor sound, and it's coming from the fuel cap/boot region. I suspect this isn't the audible locking confirmation, Would it be something broken?

Trying to work out why my car has dropped? Any 1M owners can do me a HUGE favour and measure the bumper clearance from centre screw to ground. Would be much appreciated. Mine is 12cm

Are you sure it's not the alarm activating/deactivating. . Mine does this , but has been coded for this function.

Is that the audible alarm confirmation thingy? It's definitely not that, because it's such a low volume and it's clearly coming from the fuel filler cap.

What does that sound like? My "beep" only last a split second, for about the same time as I can hear the locks actuating.

I gave the dealer a call today though, they told me it's just the lock on the fuel cap and probably just needs some lubricating... (after only 1000kms??? )
