M135 - what dealer did you work with? I was the first 128 order at Jake Sweeney. BMW Store was giving me a lame date of sometime in May even though I was the same postion on both waiting lists. Assuming that their allocations were lower. Production completion is Fri Feb 8th.

I'm at the BMW store and haven't talked to my sales rep for a couple weeks. Have you had good luck with Sweeney? I've dealt with them (not the BMW one, but others) and never have been satisfied with their customer service or sales team. I'd consider changing, but just assumed that they all are the same way.

I'm still in "On Order" status but supposed to be 5th or 6th week. I'm #3 in line for the 135i coupe there. I'm waiting for lease rates to be released so I can decide if I am getting a 1 or 3 for sure. I am on order but can back out whenever.

Do you know how many are in line at your dealership? I'm going to call mine as it is upsetting that I see so many people already done building (or will be shortly) and mine has not even started!

Hey everyone..

Just reading through the last few posts i noticed a few people had some questions they werent getting answers too.. (As many of you are a long way from WI this isnt a sales pitch, just me trying to lend a hand.) If i can help with anything just shoot me a PM and i'll try and get an answer to you as soon as possible and maybe that'l help clear up any issues youre having along the way..

Good to see everyone getting excited about the new 1er..
This car is gonna rock.

M135 ~ I was officially "on order" 2 wks before it jumped in line for production. Curious to know what slot did they tell you had? I was supposedly 7th when they put me on the list at the beginning of Oct, but was going to have to wait for a May delivery... Jake Sweeney actually has a few allocation slots still available, but the 135's go the quickest. They even had some convertibles ready to configure. I live only a mile from the BMW Store, but was getting tired of waiting so will make the switch and drive across town. I started with both internet sales mgrs and I'll admit that the one at Sweeney never made an effort. Have had a super easy time with their Asst Sales mgr Jon Ogden. I have not had service work done there so no experience with that, but my co-workers have said they're happy with them. He also told me that financing specials comparible to the deals for the 3's are very likely to be available for the 1's (due to their target market), but probably won't know what they are for a few more weeks. Hope this helps.

Well, I've checked the site almost every day and finally today I'm officially in production. So 5th week, as I was told, is right. I'm scheduled for completion Feb. 11th so I will def. have my car in time! I am #3 on the 135i list confirmed (they showed me the allotment list), so I had to believe them. Heck it was the only way I would give them money to hold a spot!

Cincy, let me know how you do on pricing at Sweeney (even though you have a 128 we can work it out). I figure maybe if I get a lot of comparisons from this site I'll know full well what is a deal and what is a rip off so I'm informed.

Thumbs up On the boat!

Found out a couple of days ago I am on the boat. The car arrives in Charleston South Carolina on Feb 12th! My Birthday! How nice... it will sit there apparantly for a few weeks before it comes to my dealer in Illinois. So, seems that BMW is likely to hold up the cars until it gets closer to the March 22nd Launch Date. :thumbup:

M135 ~ I talked BMW Store down to $500 just for the waiting list (which has been refunded), but Sweeney hasn't taken a dime. They didn't even need a deposit for the order. Like I said, Jon has been super nice, but I will share any pricing info when I get that worked out... went with the premium pkg, sport pkg, heated seats, iPod, xenons adn rear distance sensors. I'm definitely buying, not leasing, but not sure about financing yet. Please do the same as I get the impression they are more high-pressure over there and will bring it up sooner. Guess our cars will be shipmates shortly!

We should invite our fellow Midwest 1ers down for a bier at the Hofbrauhaus in Newport. Any takers?

Just spoke with my dealer on Friday when I went to pick up my loaner car. He said that they will be getting 1s when the first batch arrives (March 22ish). He showed me his inventory tracking stuff and it looked like their demo is on the Faust with my car...

Hopefully he is wrong - I am really itching to get in it!

My dealer said the week of the 10th and that supposedly my car will be on the same truck with it. He said however that I can't have it until the official release date but can drive the demo right away.

I am envious. I will be ordering one in about a year, For a late March 09 delivery. I think the dark Terra will look great. If I get leather it will probably be Coral or Lemon, but Terra is another close choice. I am 99.99% sure on Alpine White with gloss black trim and black leatherette. When the time comes to order, I will see if leather is in the budget. A Chicagoland meet would be great. When I owned my 2 Acura TL & TL-S we had meets at Wilson Skate park off Lake Shore Drive, it was alot of fun. LOTS of Acura's with all kinds of mods. I am looking forward to spring 09, SHIT.

I think its more like 11 or 12 days now... our cars are being released from the distribution ctr on April 14th.... should only be about 203 days transport... our dealer says when they get here they are prepped immediately and given to the owner - now waiting for any stinking launch date!!!
