Haha that Arnie montage is gold!

Rang Worthington's - def still avail build slot - can choose options/colour. Gf is not impressed as I bought a Z4 <12 months ago... looks like I'll have to let this one slide

BTW, he quoted me 113k driveaway! I thought it was closer to 110k!

Thanks for the tipoff ianf!

That's not a bad price TBH, if it's metallic paint and it includes 'some' options.

Do you know what build month and eta in AUS?

Got it! Did 250kms on Hunter back roads. OMFG!!!, this car is a VASTLY better than my 135i (with PROcede, LSD & BMW Perf Suspension).

It is actually hard to find any similarities between the 2 cars in the way they drive. The throttle response is staggering, revs so linear, steering VERY accurate, suspension superb. The ride is a lot stiffer, but I expected that.

The car is monstrous!

Ian, glad you are enjoying the car and not wrapping it in cotton wool.

It lives up to the hype, though be careful, my drivers license has already taken a beating thanks to a windy road near Gosford and a cop just sitting there waiting for me to come blasting along.

Unsolicited email received today.

"The ETA on your BMW 1M is still sitting at mid-April with no real date as yet, the vehicle is booked onto a vessel but my next update should be a bit more informative"

Nice Donald... which dealer? To give you an idea, mine was loaded on 28th Dec, arrived Oz on 8th Feb, delivered 28th Feb..... I'd say expect 8 weeks. The last few weeks are the worst

did you track your car? I didn't get to excited until it landed.

https://att.2wglobal.com/gstattweb/o...uickSearchPage

If you car has in fact been received at Bremmerhaven (the German departure port) then you should be able to see this. If you put your complete VIN in the 'cargo id' box and nothing is found then it has not been registered with the shipping company yet. Additionally if your car does show up in their system you should be able to click on the 'voyage number' and this will give you an overview of the cars jouney to Australia, including the ship's name, ETA and ETD for each port and when the ship is scheduled to dock in your port.

Have fun.
Thanks M1one1M. I won't be tracking my car but would be happy to know roughly when it arrives. To be surprised by news that it has been built was already a bonus! I have set my own expectation for a mid May and therefore any earlier is good

Thanks Ian. Trivett Classic. They have always been good to me and as noted above, will continue to let them inform me of progress

113k was with no options.

Options I wanted were CA and heated seats which was an extra 1800 or so?

Don't know build date/ETA but he said 4-5 months before delivery
