Garage List
Russell BMW on Route 40 has seven 1ers sitting on their lot right now.
They have (I think) two convertibles, three 135s, two 128s.
They have Sedona, SGM, T Silver, Black and (maybe) cashmere.
They have interiors in Terra, Black, Taupe, Coral and I forget what else.

They will be ready for test drives Monday noonish.

O yeah.......I think they are ALL AUTOMATICS.................WTF
(at least I don't think I saw a manual)

Took a visit to the MD BMW dealers in the DC metro area today. The only dealer with in-stock 1er's is Passport; every other dealer is getting demos and pre-orders next week. Got to see several colors: Sedona Red, SGM, and my choice color of Alpine White. That car had a sweet Coral Red Leather interior and was in the process of delivery when I saw it. Saw a lot of 128s and it's no contest between that and the 135s. They even had a demo 128i convertible for test drives which really surprised me. With the new facility on the way next month, I'm taking my business there unless I get a really sweet deal from Sterling BMW.

Plexiglass, I can say with confidence that Russell only has demos on their lot right now. The only units that have been released to us to ship are the demos and 135i with the M packages.

I sent you a PM.
But I've never done that before so I can't be sure if I did it correctly.
Check and see if you got it :biggrin:

No...No...No....
I'm not buying from that dealer........I'm with Towson.
I just went there because Towson doesn't have any yet.
I went back Sunday morning to see if yours was really there or not.

If you want more photos PM me with your email address.

stopped by Russell yesterday. Checked out a sparkling graphite on red 135. The stock exhaust tone was very nice. Car was an auto however. I'll wait to test drive until my salesperson at VOB can hook me up.

ST --
Picked it up late Saturday -- Did I talk to you? Someone came up and we chatted briefly. Then it rained on the way home. I posted pictures on

http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5577

I took pictures at the dealer; they are really over-exposed because I took the camera out of auto mode to get good exposure in doors and never changed it back.

Yup, that was me in the porkpie hat. I'm waffling between VOB and Passport now because Passport is REALLY far from my home in Silver Spring while VOB is the closest dealership. Not only that, I ran into a saleswoman who is a good friend of the lady who sold me my E46 back in 2000. They both rock so there's a good chance I'll be going back to VOB despite Passport's better rep.

ST

Hope you're enjoying your 1!

ST I can refer to you my salesperson at VOB who is excellent. Her name is Nan Wong. I have purchased 2 cars from her with a third pending and about 5 of my friends have.

I agree.
I would also not hesitate to refer anyone to Nan. I bought my first BMW ('05 330xi) from her. I almost didn't buy from them because I was ignored the first time I showed up. I gave them another shot when the contact at my bank referred me back to VOB and asked me to contact Nan. I appreciate the fact that she gives the price up-front. Most of the transaction has been handled by phone/email and I just show up to take delivery. Since '05, my family has purchased a total of 5 cars from her (2 of them came my way). Our most recent acquisition is an '08 128i. Nan made the ordering process painless and we are getting the car the way we like it- base with a few small options.
