It's so funny...when I went to buy my 135i the thought of waiting a couple of months to get the exact car I wanted it didn't bother me. The more I read about it and hang around this forum the more it's freakin killing me not to have one. I'm looking at the end of July for build which means maybe the beginnin of August for delivery...I don' think I'm gonna make it.

I haven't seen any around. I'll hopefully be ordering soon...

I was kind of shocked that Inskip only seemed to order 1 series convertibles to have in stock. I think the only 135 coupes they have sold have been special order.

In speaking with my salesman, (I ordered the beginning of June) Inskip had only received approx 6 135i's up until that point. I think there has been limited production of the 135i this year and that has a lot to do with it.

I had to special order mine and it is almost here. Talked to my salesman and he thinks it should have it by July 15th. :headbang:

I wish I knew. I should have gotten a vin # from my salesman the last time I talked to him. We probably are on the same ship...that would be funny. Just couting down the days right now.

I work at Inskip and have heard about that one. There is one on Fridays behind the Cowessett Inn and on Wednesday's in the Denny's parking lot in Coventry. I live in West Greenwich and go by the one in
Coventry every Wednesday. There are some really nice cars there. I should have my 135 this week so I would definitely be down to meet up.

I finally got it!!! I took delivery of my 08 AW 135i today. I am in love! It's white on black ett w/ 6spd and sport package. I have been dreaming about this day for so long. I have to say that the car so far is more than I imagined it would be. I can't say that about too many things in recent memory. Let me know if you guys want to meet up next Wed.
