After spending a semester abroad, I wish I was fortunate enough to afford and drive a 1M in Europe. All the roundabouts and desolate roads in Belgium are awesome.

It does indeed and I'm glad to see it. One of the reasons I "gambled" on VO.

I was almost certainly going to change my order to AW until I was driving behind a dirty AW 135i and thought it showed the dirt as much as BSM.

Thanks agan Joe. I wish I had the time available to make the 3 hour round trip.

I've got a VO on the way. Your photos just made me a very happy man.

Congrats, and enjoy the car (and the wait! )

The show cars didn't have xenon headlamps.

In the UK (at least), the law says xenon headlamps must have washers but halo don't.

I was hoping they were under the square that pops out rather than the nipple like feature that is permanently there.

The early cars without xenon's didn't have washers, check out the photos of the daytona pace car.

I was expecting hidden ones which pop put from a square in the bumper like this pictured in a blue coupe here:

Probably can't out them because the extra cooling fins/heatsink/oil cooler hardware is placed there?
