It has arrived !!

My 135i has finally landed. Arrived on Tuesday at Fremantle after a LONG 6 month wait.

Any ideas as to how long it takes to get to the dealer once all the red tape at customs has been sorted out ?

That's about average. It has to goes through Customs, Compliance etc etc etc, then be booked on a transporter as well. All that takes time. It's unlikely you will have your car in less than 10 days or so, but it can happen.

this car.. is farking awesome. have done 500km's so far and its a little beauty. I haven't driven one since my test drive 6 months ago and forgot how great it was. Everything just works perfectly and it feels so solid at any speed.

Taking it easy though and following the manual saying not to take it past 4500 for the first 2000km's. But with all that torque from 1300rpm who needs to go past 4500. I can't wait to rev it all the way out though.

Time for some more driving today!

pickup was good, they did some quick run throughs of stuff like servicing, warranty, etc etc. and then about 15mins of the car and some of the common features.

Goodies, we got some hats, car care kit and a picnic thingo which we asked for but they gave us a 600$ glamour photo voucher. Although its great they gave us a gift when purchasing the car I think that it's a pretty lame one. I'm probably going to give it to my sister who has two children. Unless they are happy to take pics of the car

Shall upload some pics tonight as we'll go driving in it today and take some.
