Congrats on the car!

Sadly this thread is for pics of the 135is, specifically.

Thought I'd share this picture as I crept over 2000 miles yesterday, and this morning, as I was leaving for work, I noticed I had exactly 2013 miles, for our beloved and exclusive 2013 135is's. Also, it was 68 degrees, though that was less significant.

Nice! We will be sad if BMW really does keep the E82 another year and also the 135is.

I just can't imagine they'd do that when the 2-series will be a 2014 and will be out around March, following a similar timeline as when the 1-series came out back in 2008. I'd say maybe there's a 1% chance of a 2014 1-series coupe here, but wouldn't they already essentially be coming out or be able to build it on the BMW website?

So, pretty sure it's dead and they're just focusing on rolling out all their larger, broader new offerings right now at all the autoshows and what have you before revealing the 2. But then again, knowing BMW, they may misinterpret recent 1-series sales spikes as something other than people making a mad rush to get the last of a dying breed.

I agree, despite what some folks have heard from their CA, I just don't see them taking the E82 through 2014.

I'm up to 950 miles, and am just about ready to order the tranny fluid, oil and filter and diff fluids for the upcoming 1200 mile fluid change

For the over $600 the dealer quoted, I'll do it myself.

Is this something not covered under the BMW 4 year maintenance?

It's only free when they say you need the service. Welcome to the wonderful reality of the "free maintenance" marketing.

Love when they changed to free maintenance, then pushed back all the scheduled service to 15k until first oil change.

Going out on a limb on this one and I assume people are sick of seeing my car, especially since Rik now has his and we don't seem to have any mineral greys in the pipeline. I'll probably post some this weekend though regarding my new trunk set up and full size spare perhaps.

Hopefully YOU will be posting pics of YOURS soon. Any update from your sales guy? My money and random psychic prediction are maybe Friday you get it, just in time for the weekend. Then you may post all the pictures you want. Plus, seeing pics of a deep sea blue are nice cause it's a pretty rare color.

i am seriously NOT sick of looking at 135is photos....in fact i find there are far too few photos of 135is online.....i will change that after i get mine.

so as of today at 1pm, the salesman is now estimating tomorrow afternoon. i wonder if tomorrow afternoon he is going to estimate wednesday afternoon? and so on? haha.

he is saying the car SHOULD be on a truck according to what he's checked. i still don't know what that means! lol

That's why I tried to gently warn you, otherwise every day is a roller coaster ride of emotions. Still believe him that there will be an e82 2014 1-series? =P

They can actually call over and have someone check on it at the port. I had mine checked up on regarding the lack of stainless steel pedals, just to work the dealer into giving them to me for free so mine can look almost as pretty as you manual people's cars.

Can't wait to see more IS photos of ANY color! I want to shoot some photos of my car in a light that captures the deep metallic look of the Mineral Grey... and looks as if the car was billeted from a single block of tungsten and then clear coated. Here's an iPhone pic of the car sitting uncomfortably close to one of those gas station car washes...

Ya, a good night/dusk photo I think would do it. I love how it looks in the dark light and am always in awe when I see it in a garage or at night. It looks both beautiful and classy, and yet also meaner than all hell.

I'd probably refer to the color as Pewter. That's the best I can come up with.

Thought I'd share a comment from an e-mail I got today from a co-worker who heard my car on cold start up and then heard it rumble as I drove past him and down the street on my way home. He said:

"Pigeons must really scramble out of your way when you enter the parking lot. That sucka be loud."

Oh and I'll probably add photos this weekend once I finally put my custom IS plates on.

While there ain't a whole lot of us mineral grey 135is-ers, we do have a powerful lobby.

Looking good Chunner. I for one could never get sick of looking at mineral grey ones. Like the nerds in Revenge of the Nerds who could never get sick of looking a the Pies...only without all the breaking, entering, and illegal surveillance cameras of course.

this is Danny(3002tii)'s 135IS. Met up with him over the weekend and took some pictures. Had to post these myself since he isn't lol. LeMans Blue looks so good in both person and pictures.
