Ordered third BMW

Well never thought I'd order another...
first was a 1996 318ti Alaska Blue sport that I picked up in Munich
second was a 325Xi / steel blue/ grey / 5MT
well the 325xi now has 150k miles runs like a champ and will be passed to our son the college student so it was time for something more fun Never realized how hard it is to find a manual trans now-a-days. There was NOTHING in the US or inbound in blue/sport/MT.

128i M-sport
LeMans Blue / Taupe
6MT
HK audio
Convenience Package
Moonroof

Now the wait begins, it will joint a garage full
2012 128i (on order)
2001 325Xi
1991 318i (M44/5speed)
1991 318iC (48k original miles)

Just checked the online tracking and it shows mine in production. Maybe I'll get lucky and it will hit everything perfect for an early delivery.

Congratulation. I had the same dilemna when wanting to find my one, I kept looking for months for the combo I wanted. Since there was nothing available that I wanted I had to custom order it. It's been two years now and I don't regret it even if it had a premium cost to it. Mine is a manual in deep sea blue with taupe leatherette, a kinda rare combo for the one.

Even to this day, I regularly check in their used inventory and I never find a car like mine or yours.

Nice to see you are 'keeping it in the family' and getting another bimmer. As a first time BMW owner, it gives me a warm fuzzy to hear that.

I lucked out when got my '12 last fall. I told my sales guy what I wanted, and he said, "You're not going to believe this, but...". Turns out the car I wanted (128i M Sport, LeMans Blue, 6MT, leatherette (have a dog), moonroof) was on a boat enroute to Canada, but not sold yet! I had to wait a whopping 2 weeks from order to drive home.
