IEDIE - Yes..took me two days to learn how stick shift..i am still struggling when im going up the hill..but i was stalling like crazy the first day.

And yes..i kind of believe the dealer about the 2014 1 serieies calling 2014. Im sure it'll be a slight different maybe like the weird looking headlights like any other new bmw.

But other then that..wow..performance exhaust..OMG...i love it. i love the harmon kardon sound as well.

you'll get the hang of the manual VERY quickly! Just make sure you drive a lot....find some nice quiet areas where you can just drive around in for a while......try some different things too.

I learned just like you....i bought a car and forced myself to learn.....in traffic!!! haha......it was crazy but now when i remember those times, a lot of fun

I'd say we could charter a boat and go pick up all your cars, but alas, it won't have any IS parts on it!

I did not order the car this time. I have been through that twice before, fun but agonizing. My dealer found one to dealer trade for me just like I wanted. It is scheduled for pick up this coming Saturday morning. It is a 135i,lemans blue, manual, msport, heated seats, black leather. Fairly basic, the way I wanted it. I am having difficulty waiting until Saturday.

I am picking mine up later this morning. I think I slept an entire 1 hour last night. I know, I am just like a little kid waiting for Christmas morning. Pretty pathetic for a 46 year old man, but I love cars. I hope yours gets on the pond soon as I know the wait is agonizing at times. I am still slightly nervous something will go wrong with the deal even though my worries are most likely unfounded. We have a signed agreed upon final price for the 135i and my trade in but you just never know.

Everything went well on the purchase this morning. I love the car and absolutely love the color. The break in period is going to be tough though. It rained on the way home so I will wash it later this evening and post some pictures tomorrow.

I signed papers today, BUT no car lol. It's still at port but signed just to lock in the incentives and rebates. Still can't believe I got over 14% off msrp! Few more days and she will be mine!

They said once a car's at port, the longer it sits there the longer it takes to get there because it gets further pushed back in the queue. In this case this car was never sold to anyone till I came about. It only had a destination in terms of which dealer it was going to. That's why I was easily able to claim it but it's been sitting at port since 12th. CA said I'll definitely get it sometime next week but with Monday being holiday his best guess is Wednesday.

Great price, I got 12.5% off if you include the $2000 BMW incentives. I hope you get your car later this week.
