Just got my estimated delivery date!

I ordered an alpine white on coral red, premium 2, m-sport, convenience, HK audio and advanced Bluetooth with the aluminum trim last week. Just got a delivery estimate for PCD on November 29th! I can\'t wait!

Yeah, I went in late Friday night last week, by Monday I had a production number and got the PCD estimate this morning. Pretty quick on that, I figured I'd be waiting forever just to get an estimated production week.

That's a hell of a wait. I was soo anxious near the end it wasn't even funny. I dunno what I would have done waiting another month longer.

At least you've got some accessories already. I haven't ordered anything yet. Going to get the windows tinted hopefully next week and maybe order some black kidneys. That's about it for now since the Cobb for the n55 isn't in the cards just yet.

Yeah, the wait sucks. I check the ship every day. It's close to the Panama Canal. By the time I get it, it will be 3.5 months!!!

It should get here on the 12th, but the performance suspension and power kit 1 will add another 2 weeks.

As far as accessories, I got the black kidneys, rubber floor mats, front and back black stainless license plate holder, and the stainless pedals. After that, will probably just do a tint and call it a day.

Can't wait thought. But I will be training in my 03' FX35, which I'll miss as well.

Good job, that is the correct color combo. Did you order it with 6MT?

Yeah it's a 6MT. M-sport, premium 2, convenience package, HK sound and advanced bluetooth. Skipped the nav and cold weather.

Dude... that kinda stinks. No worse than me, though; I had the iPhone snapin and a set of snow tires and rims LONG before I got the car. I'll have to see if I can dig up the photo I took as a joke of the four tires set out on the garage floor and me sitting on the floor between them looking like "Where's my car?"

Don't worry... the wait will be worth it. I took delivery of my 135i the day after Dano135i at the Performance Center and honestly I haven't been this happy with a car since... well... forever. The 135i is everything I ever hoped for, and more.

Dealer called, have an appt for pick up tomorrow! Look forward to it after almost 4 months.

Btw, how do you like the iPhone snap in? I'm thinking of getting one, is it expensive?

I like it, but it's not cheap. I got the Apps snap-in which was like $250 or thereabouts. Yeah, pricey. However, I do like the feeling of integration I get, and it's damned nice not to have my iPhone rolling around the cabin on the end of it's "tail" (the cable) during spirited driving

There's also the cool factor of when you have unsuspecting friends in your car that you pop open the center console and slip the phone out of its cradle. I think it looks really slick in there. I like having the apps on the iDrive and the ability to activate the "plugin" which gives me the iPhone interface on the iDrive screen. Much easier for selecting stuff than BMW's interface, particularly podcasts and audio books.

Of course, whether it's worth it or not is something only you can answer. Without the snap-in that center console space is useless anyway if you have the car prepped for it.

Thanks, I'll take pictures soon. Have not had a chance as I've been trying to install the LUX lights. My hand is all chewed up and after 2 days, finally got it to work.

I just tried plugging in the iPhone directly and it charges and looks like it connects to the antenna. I guess it's just aesthetics. Right now it's hanging out. I wonder if I can just get a holder of some sort that fits into the console.
