Congrats!!

Assuming you have the sun protection pack option....dealers can't match tint to the rear factory tint, as slightly darker than legal is required for a match. Rather get it done else where. Also dealer quoted me $350 for 2 front, while pro did it for me @$170

My VO arrived on the ship on Wednesday but it may not be ready until after Easter. 4 days off with no real plans and I may not get the car until the week after and then I am away in Darwin for 8 days. Frustrated.

Thanks, can't wait! All windows need to be done, got a reasonable price from the dealer. I haven't bought any other options from them, I still want to find someone in SA to apply a paint sealant and clear bra. There is a place up the road that uses gtechniq, thought I'd pop in there once
I have the car.

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

Spoke with sales consultant a few times last couple of weeks and was eventually told last week that collection was to be tomorrow, Thursday.

Received call this morning. They made a mistake. Car belongs to another customer.

Mine is arriving mid May, collection end May.

You can imagine my day just passed.

That's BS!!

What was the VIN on your order? You sure they didn't just swap your order with another customer?... can't see how they could make a mistake like this, the BMW order/delivery process doesn't work like that.

I spent months and months researching and test driving the car I wanted, then I heard about the opening for the 1M and that all went down the drain for a car I haven't driven!

Is the sun protection pack worth it? I'm planning of just having them do the darkest street legal tint (cancer council approved) on all windows.

If you are talking about the comfort glazing that BMW offers from the factory for the back 3 windows, then deffinately worth it.
Black tinted glass will always win hands down over a after market stuck on film. Perfect look around the glass edges surrounding the micro dotting.

Yes, better than film as Zuzu said. Wish the front door windows had the factory tint as not a perfect match with aftermarket tints.
