Ok, I'll see what I can do. However, I'm no photographer - unlike some guys on here!

Eureka, You have honour to pick up the first 135 in Oz. I have allowed Motorline to keep my car until Saturday they don't have any in stock for display. Pop in and have a look at the bits they put on and let me know what you think?

You're a very generous man Richard.. theres no way I'd let my dealer keep the car for that long.. I'm far too impatient!

Took some photos at lunchtime...but not too happy with how they turned out...they don't do the car justice. The car was in direct sunlight but from the photos you'd think it was under some sort of shade. Maybe the photos would come out better on an overcast day?

Anyway, here's a few of them:

Eureka, what did you have to pay extra if you dont mind me asking to get those wheels?? My dealer has still not confirmed how I can obtain them. Very annoying!

This photo (taken from inside my garage) probably shows a truer representation of the colour of the performance wheels...

Really love the combo with the red interior (coral red right?)

Looks like the other car is a Golf or Jetta of some kind :biggrin:

Yes, correct: a MkV Golf. Sorry, it's no R32...it's a 2.0 TDi and has been the 'family car' for the last 3 years and will be sold as soon as the VW Passat wagon arrives in a couple of months (125kW TDi). Also have a Fiesta Zetec as a 'backup'. All good cars in their own way...

Yep, Coral Red. Took some photos of the interior too - but they came out so rubbish it's not worth posting them! They make the red look far brighter than it actually is (and also articifical looking).

Hey Richard, last Thursday I saw your car with all the bits on it (but minus the rear spoiler)...thought it looked really good. The CF parts (and the black grill) go really well with the AW...but I reckon they'd get a bit 'lost' on my SGM...

Eureka, Yes CF bits goes best with AW, but I do like your colour combo. The coral red interior is fantastic and is not as bright as the photos show it, in real life it appears to be a deeper red

There's lots I could say on the driving experience...but it's probably all been said before in the main forum etc. Suffice to say, the car is awesome and you will not be disappointed!

What makes the biggest impression for me is how the 'whole package' is spot on...the engine, the handling, the steering, the interior, the exterior...everything comes together to make this a truly exceptional car. And then you factor in the price too - it's got to be the best value new BMW going.

By the way, the Performance wheels look stunning with SGM!
You win!
