Ordered a 125i in South Africa


I am totally new here and this is my first post.
I ordered my 125i on the 14th June 09 and can only expect to get it on the 15th September 09! So needless to say I am climbing the walls and 1ADDICTS has been my haven for the last few days to keep me sane.
I have been reading the posts extensively and it has all been so helpful.
This really is an amazing group of passionate people!!

Oh my order!
I have ordered my car as follows:

125i Coupe
Sedona Red
Boston Black
Exclusive Model

Automatic Transmission with Steptronic
Shift paddles on Sports steering wheel
Chrome-line exterior
Glass Sunroof, electric with sliding and vent function
Sun protection glazing
Interior trim finishers, Black high-gloss
Headlamp washer system
Xenon headlights
Air-conditioner with microfilter
Navigation System, Professional
Voice control
Bluetooth compatible cellphone preparation
Hi-Fi loudspeaker LOGIC 7 System
Area code 2 for DVD
USB-/Audio Interface
Acoustic seat belt warning
Multifunction for steering wheel
Automatic anti-dazzle interior mirror
Park Distance Control (PDC),front and rear
Rain sensor and automatic headlight control
Cruise Control On Stalk-switch
Extended Light Package

I debated long and hard with all the options and trust me, no choice was made without deep thought. I know it is stacked with options, but
I chose the 125i due to the large price difference here in SA between it and the 135i.
I am sure the 125i is enough for me. (haven't test driven a 135i and plan to keep it that way)
I actually was originally looking at the 120d, but after all the options I want, they both ended up virtually the same price!! So the song of the inline 6 it was for me!!

I have scoured the forums extensively, and have some questions I hope you can help me with.

1. It seems unclear as to how much of the iDrive's HDD space is dedicated to music. is it 12gb or 8gb?
2. Sun protection glazing, is this a clear film or it this Window tinting?
3. Does the acoustic sealt belt warning make a difference?

Look forward to being part of this community. You are all a great help during my long wait...

Sorry for such a long post.
