Coming back from Burlington, we came down Franconia Notch and took the Kancamangus (I'm not sure about the spelling either - it looks good to me). This car makes that road effortless. I was also pleasantly surprised that if you behave on the highway (I know that is hard to do) you can get 30 MPG, which is a real bonus these days.
WRX4sale, I know how you feel about the pictures. I was also looking at the same few pictures for the longest time. I'll try for Thursday if the weather decides to cooperate for a change. Of course I love your color scheme. Mine is very similar; sport package, standard taupe and walnut trim. I like the way this car can look distinguished, but with attitude. I had a tough time with the color selection. It looks good in all of them. I do like the idea of being the only Blue Water 135 around. We'll see how long that lasts.

I saw a Blue Water Metallic coupe today and was blown away! The car looks really good. I have been thinking of AW but when I saw this color it reminded be of SST. I never would have even considered the color but am glad I saw one in person.

New 135i, Blue Water

Just took delivery of my 135i, Blue Water, Black leather last Friday at the Performance Center. The PC experience was great. I highly recommend it.

We were able to drive a red 135i for the driving exercises on the track and a 335 on the skidpad. Really enjoyed the hot lap in the M5. Only bad part was after driving an X5 on the off road course, wife determined she would like one of those. The marketing plan does work.

I was a little hesistant on the pedals but figured if I was going to have it done might as well have them installed for the PC delivery along with the floor mats. I like they way they turned out.

beautiful color combo... not as aggressive looking as the black or some of the other darker colors, nonetheless a great combo for the 1er.

Nice looking ride. That will look right in its place running around a warm island. I can only imagine a warm breeze now - we're frickin freezing over here.

I love this color (and no, it's not a girl's color). And to put my money where my mouth is, I have one on order, and will hopefully take delivery around the end of March.

Blue Water is a fantastic colour. I actually had it on order before changing it to sedona red. Whoever gets this colour will not be disappointed

My car should be arriving at the dealer in the next few days. I'll be sure to post pictures here.

I remember waiting for the last few days - that was the worst part when counting down the final hours. You are about to be one happy guy in a few days. Have fun.

If I had to order over again, and Laguna Seca Blue still failed to be an option, I would order blue water/lemon. E82TT6's car is stunning.

"Mr Car Car" is here.

Blame my girlfriend for the name. I took delivery this evening, and only managed to get two pictures at the dealership between signing forms and being shown around the controls.





This thing feels insanely fast after my 2000 Eclipse GT. It's so easy to hit 100 without even realizing it!

My thanks go to David Stinson and North Scottsdale BMW for the excellent buying experience. Highly recommended.

Very nice. I would have gotten this color, but I wanted something that would have allowed for more wheel and cosmetic options that wouldn't clash. And plus, my last 2 cars were blue (wrb 2006 STI and 97 prelude Ice metallic blue). Be sure to take more pics of this rare color.

Yeah - I love it! Seems my car attracted some attention at the dealership since it's apparently the only 1er they've seen with the M-sport package and a manual transmission.
