Yes, some where in Europe... insurance claim submitted...takes another 30 business days. After doing more research, decided not to install it now. If it ever arrives if will be up for grabs.

Fair enough.
When I bought the car I told the dealer I was keen on whatever track days they did and never heard anything.

I used to just tag along to the Barbagallo track days with my dad and bring my Audi in. Don't think they were very impressed with a hatchback overtaking people crawling their Lamborghinis around

Did you get yours from West Coast? Who was your dealer?

They said they sent invites out to special customers only... what that entails i'm not exactly sure...

It was a free event, breakfast and lunch provided... m5, m3, 750, 740, 650, 640, 6 gran coupes all available for drives.. great day

Auto classic, and I'm guessing I'm not a 'special' customer as I've bought 1 ex-demo 135i.

Congrats DEF, nice choice in colour, well there isn't much choice given they are getting rare as rockin horse shi1t now (new).


It is good that you don;t have it yet, that gives you time to call Damian at Final Inspection for some paint love and protection.

I have said this to all Mexicans, I strongly recommend you go get some Full Metal Jacket protection on that beauty ASAP.

A few of the guys on here have been and can make comment, Smiley, Ausfredy and me of course (three of my cars in the past 10 months).

I stand buy Final Inspection so much so that I am shipping my 5 day old BSM 1M down there from Canberra in an enclosed transporter in the next few weeks.

http://www.finalinspection.com.au/

Enjoy the new ride, 5 days in nothing mate!

Thanks guys - AW was my first preference so I feel very lucky to pick one up brand spanking new!

Good idea on the FMJ - I'll reach out to Damian

The 5days is feeling like an eternity at the moment.
