Hi
I currently have (supposedly) a 130i sport on order but I can't get a production number out of my dealer and they are giving me conflicting build dates, including September. Does deletion of 130i sport mean the 130i will no longer be available (as the sport is the only one available here) or that it wont come with the sport (ie M) options as a default.

Maybe due to the success of the 135. As usual we get feed limited information about this.

You would have to go back to your dealer on this one but yours could possibly be one of the last of a great car!

Read's to me like you CAN'T delete the M sport suspension from a 135 order.
I thought they would add digital radio to the spec of the new cars?

Hmm. I wonder how long a committee sat to decide this and how much they were paid.

I am sure 135i will keep M suspension. The option of suspension only is deleted - hence not apply to 135i since the M sport package is already standard.

I am just wondering about the convertible... does it mean you can get M suspension on that??

I read it as being able to retain standard (i.e. non M Sport) suspension WITH the M-Sport pack. Anyone that does this should be strung up by the fingernails

You can order the 135 vert with sports suspension but it isn't standard. Mine has the sports suspension

I wonder if I can retrofit the diesel engine on my wife's 125i.
