Haha what were you afraid of man. Just how different it would look and if it would blend well with the mirrors and such? I can understand as BWM is a color you don't see very often so it's hard to imagine. Especially with coral interior as you and I have. But I understand. I felt the same about ordering my alpine white interior trim and then wished I didn't until I saw it in person. Now I'm so glad I did as its stunning in person and not very common by far. I was however to chicken shit to order oyster interior for the fear of it getting to dirty and not looking good up against alpine white exterior sense it's pure white and oyster Isent. Still wish I had sometimes though. BTW took my car in to have the oil changed after break in. Maybe it's a placebo in our heads but I feel mine is smoother now also. I didn't have the diff or tranny fluid changed like you though. It was hard enough just co communicate to them that I wanted the oil changed but not to reset the service indicator lol. If I spoke the language I could have gotten it accross better but oh well.

I struggled with ordering BWM for awhile. I finally just decided to go for it and I absolutely love the way the car looks.

It really is an amazing color, and the picture captures it fairly well, but most pictures don't do it any justice compared to how it actually looks.

Just curious here, but when I bought my 2008 135i M-Sport. I took the key and ownership to the dealer to get a complete maintenance history check done. When I got the paperwork, on the top of the print-out page it says 2008 135iS Vin# etc. etc.
Does that make my car a 135iS ??

I just couldn't get over not really knowing if I could live with Blue for a while. I also really wanted coral red interior but to me the BWM looks better with black.

Yea it's incredible in person, especially on the accentuated lines/surfaces of the 135i. Actually it was a BWM 135i that first gave me the real itch for this car. Used to see it on the turnpike all the time.

Probably just the dealer's way to differentiate M-sport.

Thanks - can't wait for it to arrive! The 800 number now says my vehicle is in production with estimated completion of Feb 4. Hopefully it will make it onto a ship by mid Feb and arrive at the Brunswick VDC by early March. I'm thinking now I might see it at my dealer by late March.

You missing out, BWM looks fabulous, but then I'm biased - even more so as my 135 is BWM with Coral Red interior

But, I quite like the fact that I seem to have the only 135 in that combo

eywflyer - So my 135is convertible is at the port, looks like the race is on to see which one of us gets our vehicle first to post pictures!

On a side note to all, feels like postings are down as I haven't seen hardly any new posts in the threads I'm subscribed to...perhaps Winter Storm Nemo had everyone in the north-east states offline.

Mine is currently a white salt spray color. Not much to look at.

New ///M traction bars are in hand, but too cold and no time to install.

My 135is coupe is at the port too - I think it has been there since last Friday. I've been calling the 800 number daily hoping to hear a status change but nothing yet. My car will eventually go to Brunswick VDC then on to Fort Lauderdale. Hoping it will make it onto one of the March 4 ships into Brunswick then to my dealer by March 15 or so.

If we end up on the same ship, you will have a few days advantage as the ship unloads at your VDC first.

Great photos posted here, can't wait to add my Deep Sea Blue coupe to the list! Will try to get some good close-ups of the blue stitching as well. My 135is order is still sitting in Bremerhaven, hopefully it gets on the "Mignon" which calls there Tuesday and arrives Brunswick March 11.

Was looking at 1 series sales numbers at this site: http://www.goodcarbadcar.net/2011/01...s-figures.html

and wondering how many total 135is cars will be built, particularly if this model is available only for MY 2013. Now obviously the 135is is not anywhere near the "special" level of the 1 series M (740 of those exported to the U.S.), but it would still be interesting to know what the number ends up being.
