Hi from Belgium

OK so I'm not technically a UK resident but the continental Europe forum has next to no activity and I plan to bring my 123D to the UK as often as possible to sample Welsh roads :smile:

I'm a New Zealander living in Antwerp, Belgium. 123D M-Sport Coupe arriving middle of September. Have many driving holidays planned and would be keen to join some of the UK meets given enough notice.

So anyway, hi! :thumbup:

Cheers,
Andrew

Ok i am bored of waiting for my 123d cooop now, made worse by my dealer giving me a 120d M Sport hatch for the weekend!!

I've been told it has a chassis.. quite what that means in terms of it being built I don't know??

I can't wait for September!

It has a chassis no.... is probably what he meant.

Usually means that they have started building it.

Good luck!

Getting mine on the 3rd September, built last week in July, could have picked it up today but wanted the new reg in September.

Yeah chassis number usually means it starts production 2 days later. The chassis's are already painted so they just assemble it to your spec.

Hey, I spoke with my dealer and he told me that it is most likely my car will be delivered sometime in november (estimated deliver on my order 5th Oct)... I placed an order at the beginning of June so it will be almost 6 months! Waiting like for the Aston Martin. It's partly because I decided to wait for the 09' spec version with new nav etc. It didn't bother me that much but since its getting closer I'm getting impatient The good thing of that situation is that I will be exporting the car which means I will have two months since pick up for the new registration and that will result in January so go for resale value (1 year younger car instead of late 08')

Quick Hi,

Not English, but live here! Love the 135i, reminds me of the E46 M3, got one (hopefully) on order for end of Oct/Nov assuming I wrap up negotiations soon :smile:

Can you believe it - I preferred the 135i 'vert over a E90 M3 Convertible M-DCT (test drove both, I liked the 135i more :thumbup

Looks like a friendly place... just thought I'd say hi

Hi everyone. I'm in New Jersey right now but moving to the Manchester area in December. It's not easy trying to figure out how to order a car from overseas and without a local address but that should be straightened out in the next month or so and hopefully I can take delivery shortly after arriving in the UK.

Hi all,

I'm new here so thought I'd say hello!

We have just bought an Aug '07 120d Msport Auto 3dr from BMW Milton Keynes for the Mrs and I'm on the prowl for a few bits and bobs.

The car we bought has a high spec ie 18", xenons, Leather etc but the radio is U/S and has no bluetooth.

Planned Mods:

BMW Proff CD
Alpine/BMW speaker/Amp upgrade
Bluetooth using steering wheel controls?
Wood trim - dark poplar

Congrats. I'll be bringing my 1 over to the UK mid November including London. Would like to see your car if you have it by then.

I've got tickets to the Nov 19 filming of TopGear

Oh You are so lucky with those tickets!
If I will be in London than definitely, but currently I am staying in Copenhagen for couple months so the trip to London will be just to pick up the car.
And than all the way to Copenhagen or my home in Poland. That will be a good opportunity to break it in.

Another newbie here.
Bought a 125i M sport coupe for the better half in September and I love it so much I have just ordered a 135i M sport Cabrio for myself....

Should be a bit different to my MINI Cooper S JCW!

Hi All,

I'm in Hampshire. Sedona Red 135i with ITG foam air filter and BMW Performance exhaust and running VPower all the time.

Did a dyno run last weekend:
310.5BHP
480 NM torque (358 Ft Lbs)

I am looking for an afdter market filter and remove the air box next. was thinking with the Air box out it would be easier to access the TMAP sensor to fit the SSTT. Obviously the AFE one would not allow this access when fitted, but it does look damn nice.

Si

We were able to remove the SSTT with the AFE in, the stock filter would block this access.
