Collecting my 1M tomorrow (Saturday)

My collection day is almost here

I spoke to my dealer earlier today and will be collecting my very own 1M tomorrow morning!! After nearly 5 months since I ordered it, I'm 24 hours away from driving it.....

The dealership itself is literally a 5 minute drive from my house, just around the corner. Knowing that my car is there right now having it's PDI is a great feeling and I have a lot of driving planned over the next week as I've booked the entire week off work

So, my immediate plans are:

1.) Collect the car

2.) Drive Drive DRIVE!!!

3.) At some stage on Saturday fit my LUX Angel Eyes

4.) Sunday - Meeting up with Jezzer to try out his custom made mats in my car.

5.) Next week - DRIVE!!!!

Whoo hooo!!

(Pictures will be added tomorrow )

Congrats!! I picked mine up yesterday, I had a very early flight out to the dealer and for the first time I was not rushing to the airport because I couldn't sleep either. It's been a long wait, I knew within the first 5 minutes that it was well worth it!

Congrats! But you guys are killing me. My production was complete Oct. 4 and I'm still not on a boat. E expected a week or two, but 17 days and counting is making me crazy! So jealous of all of you with 1M's in hand. Can't wait to join you.

congrats!

somehow i miss: apply swizol glacier - on your schedule

but then again - have your run-in service next week

i dont know if it is a placebo effect but somehow i feel the car builds up speed much faster since the run in service

I LOVE hearing things like this because i know exactly how everyone feels. At one point I got really close to taking a hefty dose of tylenol PM to put me out. I ended up getting about 2 hours of sleep with all the constant waking up to see what time it was. CONGRATS! :happy anim:

Congrats!

And, keep the shiny side up! You'll find the car is plenty fast below 5500rpm to get some jollys. But when you start getting familiar w/ the car you'll need to exercise some self control.

Do you live in Chelmer Village Chris? Lived there for a year there a few years ago. Used to go past Coopers on the way to work and think one day etc. In fact had first look at the 1 coupe there when it first came out in 2007/2008. Was doing man math on a 120d back then but couldn't justify it.

Enjoy, should be a nice weekend to pick it up!

Enjoy it tomorrow Chris, then get it run in asap. I'm convinced mine received a 'stupidly fast' update at the running in service

For all the work you went thru with the RHD mats, I would let you drive my 1M.
