Wow, so much for the limited to 100, then 200, models then.

Awesome result for Australia though.

Hey Guys,

What wheels fit the 1M?
I'm looking at getting a 2nd set of rim/tyres for track days and not sure what options are out there. I'm not after anything fancy. I was thinking 18" as rubber would be easier to come by.

Do the 261 wheels fit on the 1M? I have a set of 19" wheels forsale currently but if they fit on the 1M i may just end up using them for the track.

any thoughts?

Cheers
Ian

No to 261's.

Front Wheels - 19x9" ET31 (25.4 LBS, 31mm offset)
Rear Wheels - 19x10" ET25 (26.6 LBS, 25mm offset)

18" would be better for track use. If it fits a E9x M3, it will fit a 1M. Contact SonicMS.... they have some good affordable light weight wheels.

Yep they fit! They are pretty light weight and 18" tyres are a hell of a lot cheaper.

Had mine for almost a year now. Picked them up for a AU$1600 landed or so from a guy in the US forum. Came with the original PS2s with 90% tread.

Best track day investment! With some Advan A050s from Vans!

Cause for concern?

Hi Guys,

Wondering if any of you would have some insights into the following:

I was lucky enough to get an allocation for a 1 M in April and have been tracking delivery since on w2global.

w2global states that my car arrived 31/7 at Fremantle on the "Grand Mercury" and was "delivered from" Fremantle on 7/8.

Have asked the dealer ~ 3 times on whether they have my car since the 7/8 in which they said they have not.

I actually also purchased a Z4 which we received last month where w2global stated it was delivered from Fremantle on 25/7 and we took delivery on 26/7.

I have emailed the dealer about my cause for concern this morning in which I have not received a response.

Anyone here have an idea why my 1 M has gone missing since 7/8?

Anybody on this forum from the eastern states have had their cars already delivered that was on the Grand Mercury?

Many thanks in advance...

Cheers

Hi Zhi,

I think something is very fishy about your order as mine was on the same boat Grand Mercury and I got mine delivered this afternoon.

Hope you get yours sorted out soon.

Nah joking, I would front them F2F armed with what Quang said re his delivery and demand a response.

Should take between 1 & 2 weeks from offload port to dealer. The dealer can access the clearing stages through their own software. Go and see them. Say you want to speak to to someone at BMW AU.

Zhi,
Here's the ship's schedule:
BREMERHAVEN GERMANY 22/06/2012 23/06/2012
ZEEBRUGGE BELGIUM 24/06/2012 25/06/2012
SOUTHAMPTON UNITED KINGDOM 28/06/2012 28/06/2012
DURBAN SOUTH AFRICA 16/07/2012 16/07/2012
REUNION ISLE STDENIS REUNION 20/07/2012 22/07/2012
FREMANTLE AUSTRALIA 31/07/2012 31/07/2012
MELBOURNE AUSTRALIA 04/08/2012 05/08/2012
PORT KEMBLA AUSTRALIA 06/08/2012 07/08/2012
BRISBANE AUSTRALIA 08/08/2012 09/08/2012

and here's the log for my car:
DELIVERED FROM PORT KEMBLA 10-08-2012 18:00:00 1
DISCHARGED PORT KEMBLA 07-08-2012 00:00:00 1
LINER RELEASE PORT KEMBLA 31-07-2012 11:04:06
LOADED ON VESSEL BREMERHAVEN 23-06-2012 20:25:00 1
RECEIVED AT TERMINAL BREMERHAVEN 23-06-2012 20:24:00 1
BOOKED BREMEN 20-06-2012 17:00:49 1

So it took 11 days since the car came off Port Kembla to delivery this afternoon. Mind you, I know my sale rep well and he pushed for the car to be ready for delivery asap. It's good to have a decent relationship with your dealer.

Hope that helps. I hope your dealer has a good and reasonable explanation for you.
Quang

Thanks 1MOz, Alpine, Ian...

Good to know then that you did have a delay between delivery from the port to delivery at the dealer. Guess I was thrown off from the fact that the Z4 that got delivered last month, there was only a 1 day delay.

My 1 M would be the first 1 M delivered at the dealer, was concerned one of their staff went for a joy ride and damaged the car somehow.

Will await their response tomorrow or will pay them a visit.

Actually attending the BMW Aus track day tomorrow at Barbagallo's... anyone here going?

How do you get an invite?
I'm assuming it's buy more cars.
