at dealer: mid July (week 28)
taking delivery & break-in period: September (courtesy deal with dealer: static display during the Summer)
region: Broekzele City (of all places )

I was told 41 1M's were allocated to Belgian dealers and so far no plans exist for more allocations (but never say never).

Another Belgian VO: the test mule of BMW Belux (1/41 with license plate 1-BCI-854) reviewed in the Belgian car review "AutoGids"- "Le Moniteur Automobile" issue 825/1499 of June 8, 2011:

Big deal
Maar spijtig om zo'n wagen met klevers te moeten bezoedelen.

Hi there, may I know how much it costs for the high gloss black shadowline trim in Belgium? Anyone stays with the chrome trim?

According to my purchase order, option 760 (Shadow Line hochglänzend)
= €103.31 + 21% VAT = €125.00

According to the German specs list
= €100.84 + taxes = €120.00
(description: "BMW Individual Hochglanz Shadow Line: hochglänzende schwarze Ausstattungsumfänge")
(http://www.bimmerpost.com/forums/att...9&d=1294251458).

To my understanding (judging by the pictures) the vast majority on this forum prefers the Shadow Line over the Chrome Line (or probably it's simply because the Shadow Line is a standard feature in most parts, if not any part, outside Europe).

Beware, it's an option you cannot retrofit. So you got to make up your mind before your order becomes final.

Another standard difference between European and US 1M's are front blinkers: except if mistaken, European 1M's get the white/bright ones while the US 1M's get the orange ones.

In Hong Kong,it costs about EUR190 + 110% tax.

Why couldn't it be retrofitted? Sadly,mine is in Chrome, but it doesn't look bad with VO.

I guess we all get white/bright blinkers in Asia.

Yeah, I have VO and chrome trim. I like chrome trim.
Here's my car, sitting at the dealer (hence the wrapping plastics) :

I think that VO suits the chrome trim more than the black trim, just my 2 cents

I like the VO, but didn't dare taking it myselve,
