Talking My 1M, nickname Snow. Ownership thread updates

I am very pleased to inform the 1Addicts community that I have finally collected my 1M this afternoon, nick named "Snow".

Can't wait to do some proper driving this weekend. From my brief drive home today, I'm very impressed (coming from owning an Audi RS4 for over 5 years). The mods will start soon, mainly cosmetic enhancements. I won't be rushing in to do anything mechanical just yet other than replacing the midpipe with the N55 midpipe. Already organise time with Peter from Advan to do this.

Here are some quick pics I got while paperwork was completed.

I look forward to getting together with fellow Beemers enthusiasts.

UPDATED:
Just uploaded some photos I took with my iPhone on the day of delivery.

Nah, I got it from Frank Goh. I've known him for years, previously bought 2 X5 (E53 4.4i and E70 4.8i) from him.

Very similar mods to Marco (bmw1mc) with his AW.... you should take a look at his car as looks the bomb.

Haha, I know I need to grow a bit more!

With coding, I am looking to do the codings for:
-get rid of the Nav disclaimer start screen.
-Auto folding side mirrors
-Video in motion
-BMW apps

Is there anything I should or can do?

Thanks everyone for your nice words.

All the photos were taken with just one lens and natural light, EF 24-70mm F/2.8 a great all rounder lens.

I'm no professional but if anyone want to know anything photography, let me know as I am more than happy to help.

I have had all those coding done except the BMW apps.

Thanks mate.
I used Canon 5D MkII.
I believe Luster can do the coding. I may even get the OBD thing to code myself. Apparently it's not that expensive, under $100 on eBay.

I had Luster ( Clinton ) code my car..Great job and a great bloke..

He is away for a while now, and won't be back on the forum for some time..

I am still in contact with him, but he has other more pressing priorities at the moment.
