Wednesday the 21st, 3pm

It's here! It's here! It's finally here! :thumbup:

I've seen it, I've touched it! Joining the stable tomorrow is a Space Grey 135i with Sunroof, new iDrive with Logic 7, F/R PDC, electric folding door-mirrors, Steptronic and Walnut trim. The last two options was so I could remain an honourary member of the fuddy-duddy club.

There's been many sleeps since June 15, but tonight will be the hardest. My full story is here:

Pictures to come...

Hey, my mirrors fold ... oh wait ... they only do that if I twist them manually. Doh. At least the passenger mirror automatically looks down when reversing. That's nice. Didn't stop "someone" in our family from kerbing a rear wheel though.

Have fun with the delivery tomorrow Sprey. I loved the look of Cameron's Space Grey 135i Coupe on Sunday. I'm sure you'll be delighted with your new toy.

Did you know you can stop it doing it if you flick the L-R switch to the R side? :headbang:

Thank you to all of you for your kind words! I've got 6 long hours to go.

Yes Gumball, mine was on Don Carlos which arrived into Port Kembla on January 7. Are you waiting on a car too?

Congratulations Gumball!

I would say that's a definite, unless you have a lot of dealer fitted or aftermarket options. At least at my dealer, their orders have been physically received and they would be keen to deliver and free up their cash flow.

So, how is your car optioned and coloured?

Thanks - same to you! My dealer told me my car was only invoiced on Monday and was hoping to get delivery yesterday...

Coupe - Jet Black, Beige interior, grey polar, Sunroof, Logic 7, Heated Seats and Comfort Access.

Getting the dealer to tint the windows too so that may hold it up a day...

I have possession! I have driven... I have brought home!

Dear all,



Here are pictures as promised - it got a bit late into the day so I apologise for the 'greyness' :biggrin: Of course I had to bring it home to a thunderstorm!






Gumball, I think you have a good chance as long as the Window Tinters don't delay you. Maybe tell the dealer you're rather bring it back another day for tinting instead of missing out on your car this weekend.

I'll post my initial thoughts on my car soon. Too early to call after just 20 kms!

My car was the first space grey E82 I've seen in the flesh, and so far, I can say it looks nice with water beads from the ensuing storm after I picked up my car! Up till now Cam2801, I've just been reviewing pictures of yours! :eyebulge:

As for wheels, I've been testing the much touted Armorall Wheel Protector on my other cars and I must tell you, it does indeed solve the brake dust problem. On my E32 cross-spokes, it still looked silver (not grey or black) after 3 weeks, not 3 days.

Only issue is, good luck finding a stockist! It must be very popular...

P.S. only 50kms on the clock so far...

congrats on the car, the photos look great with the dark skies around. Like you, I ordered a space grey without ever seeing it. Just a couple more months to go before i get mine...
