Just spoke with my CA at MAG in Columbus, OH and he said they received two of them this morning: 1 - 135i and 1 - 128 (both autos). I'm heading down in the next day or so to drive the 135i and pay for mine.

TMc how is that beast, I went down on Thurs and paid for mine now I just have to wait till April 1st to pick up at the PCD, sure wish I would have seen your baby when I was there. By the way how much is the clear bra and did you do the full kit, I'm definately going to have mine done and would like to use MAG. I could not be happier with my buying experience at MAG, Louis Smith was my salesman and he's the first new car salesman that I can honestly say I liked personally and professionally.

Thanks! The beast is incredible!! Seriously, I am really happy with this car. They sent my car out on Thur for the rock guard which is why you missed it. I picked it up this morning. The clear bra ran me about $430 (although they might have misquoted me a lower amount b/c he later said it was around $480 but stuck to the orig price). It looks okay. Never had a clear bra so I wasn't sure how obvious it would be. From most angles, you can't even notice it. It does have a bit more of a matte finish vs. the high gloss paint on the unprotected area but was told that it will smooth out more when it sits in the sun. The bra covers about 1/3 of the hood and side quarter panels (to the top of the front wheel arches) as well as the mirrors and the entire bumper and lower aero package. Good purchase in my opinion. My buying experience has been great. I am leasing and was going to go through leasecompare.com but the were able to shop out the lease and match their deal through a local bank which saved me some serious $$. I will email you some pic's if I can figure out how to do so (newbie here).

Just saw the post and haven't been checking in on this site as often... too busy driving the new 128 that I picked up earlier this week. (first "one" in Cincy). I went thru Jake Sweeney and as far as I can tell they received 4-5 cars. I was too distracted to find out how they were equipped. Haven't driven the 135 to compare, but I'm loving the 128 with sport package!

How many other Cincy/NKY folks here and when do you pick-up your cars? Did you get yours M135?

Hey guys, I'm currently a student at UD (univ. dayton) and I will start working in Columbus in August.

You people that have ordered cars and bought in Columbus dealers, do you recommend me ordering the car how many months prior to when I need it for? How is the process as far as time and availability of the cars?

They wanted to charge above MSRP when I talked to them before I placed my order. Needless to say, I didn't order from them...
