Spoke with my lovely wife and she adopted the same clinical position as the left side of my brain had worked out.

Will get the house works out of the way and join the 135i fraternity mid-next year.

Look forward to the first deliveries and feedback here.

I finally got my quote today and have pulled the trigger on an alpine white manual with sunroof and professional hifi. June delivery but could be May if I can make a decision on the interior trims soon. It is a toss-up between coral red, black and terracotta. I really like the idea of the white on red but at the same time I want to be able to relax in the car (when I'm not fanging it) and I wonder if the red will be too much of a distraction...

I think I'm pretty set on the poplar grey wood trim.

Congratulations spdrcr! I'd go for the Terra 1st, then black 2nd. Coral red is too eye searing for me. I went for poplar grey as well.

BTW what did your quote come in at? I'm still waiting for my dealer to get back to me on that one....

I got my quote, $78,800 (inc gst, delivery,options)

Pro Hifi, White, Boston Leather, manual. Dealer said it would drop a bit because of the corp pricing. Massive savings too I got with Delivery, $2900 reduced to $1600. Im going to add in the sunroof though..

Just waiting still on my trade in price and also the Circle price which they dont have info on yet

Also confirmed the N95 doesnt work with the new bluetooth, cant get the address book. So its only partially working (voice works)

spd: did you have to pay a deposit?

I don't want to state the exact price but I did get a discount on the delivery fee and a touch off the base price. Having said that I do qualify for EPP pricing and have been dealing with the same person at BMW Sydney Corporate sales for the past 7 years (I'm a director of a vehicle packaging company).

I've put down a $1k deposit.

I worked a couple of the other BMW dealers that we do business with and they weren't prepared to play ball at all.

Terracota is an option for us? Is that the Brown? I initially went for beige with Alpine White, but have since changed to black. I had red on a E46 coupe once and it was too much after a while. Terracota could be nice. What do you guys think of white with beige? I am going for grey poplar as well.

I was keen for terracotta, but was told by my dealer it wasn't available. Bum rap!
The coral red is a little bit "orangy", as opposed to the really nice "deep" Fox Red in the M3. I don't think it will look that good in the flesh either.

I think terracotta with the white would look great, but black safer, and a more reliable sell if you need to in the future.

Way, I agree with Swift. The beige would not look good with the AW

I will have to double check about the Terracotta, if that is ruled it will make the decision a bit easier I think. I've always like white cars with red leather (I used to want an S2000 in that configuration) but I'm just not sure about the coral red. I've only seen one decent pic and I'm not totally convinced.

Hey fellas,

Just got to option up our order.

Going for 135i Sport + PDC, Sunroof, Alarm, CD Changer, and HiFi Professional.

Colour options: Alpine White + Coral Red Interior.
Has anyone got good photos of Terra vs. Coral Red??

Out of curiousity - any reason my dealer suggested against an alarm?? Has anyone else not put this thing on??

Ouch. Sydneysider, we used to go through Canterbury (before they even opened the BMW dealership) until a few very unfriendly and harsh truthes came out. Despite what ever favours you think you're getting I would recommend comparing them immediately to other dealerships.

I recommend calling BMW Parramatta and then giving BMW Worthington a go. Just take your listed specs and see what price they put together.

I bet you'll be surprised.

If that is correct, you are basically getting pro hifi and ORC (SDuty / Dealer Delivery etc) for free given 78k is essentially base price + GST. Saving of 4-5k, atleast, by my calculations. Fantastic deal on a car in which demand will outstrip supply. Doubt I'll be able to wangle anything close to that down here in Melbourne Town.
