Cool I've only gone and done it!

So, after months of lurking, a year and a half of posting and turning up to every UK meet in an E46 I've taken the plunge.

On order an E91 330d Msport
Titanium Silver
Black Leather
Luggage Pack
Auto Dim Int & Ext Mirrors
Lumbar
PDC all round
Adaptive Xenon
Pro Nav
Voice Control
BT + Telematics
HiFi
USB

....and...

an E87 118d SE
Titanium Silver
Anthracite Cloth
Dynamic Pack (17" wheels, Sports Seats and Suspension)
Visibility Pack (Adaptive Xenon and Light/Rain Sensor)
Comfort Pack (Cruise, PDC all round and Storage Pack
Pro Radio
USB

Now comes the wait

(..and if you're checking the forum out Nick, I look forward to September )

Seems I am the first to congratulate. I remember my salesperson telling me that buying a car is the next biggest thing to buying a house

But am I reading correctly.... you have bought 2 cars??

Congrats.
Gordon.

Fantastic news, congratulations. Twonew silver Beemers? I bet you were the salesmans dream! What kind of deal did you get? I bet it was a lot better than my E92! The more I think about it, the more I feel I should have gone for DAB and USB, I wonder how long I have to change the spec.....

The new 118d is very economical I believe, you'll be filling up once every six months or so Is that a 3 or 5 door?

Another one counting the days until September..... and I must get one of those ticker things!

I'm ashamed to say yes.... and no

It's the often seen female aversion to "large" cars.

My wife drives the e90 during the week and I only get to play in at weekends, so I can't use the "large" car excuse.

I take it you've spoken to Matt offline - I can't see any mention of the "deal" ?!

Me too, just thought it an odd thing to say unless i'd missed something... Which is always possible. Or it was an assumption, like yours, which given matt's knowledge from here seems quite possible!

It took a bit of arm twisting, but the deal was right up there with what the online brokers can do even though we've got a couple of cars to trade in.

The wait is killing me already Though I was glad this morning not to have just changed when having to drive through several inches of muddy river running down the only road out of the area that was passable.

Matt, enjoy it... In a perverse way the build up and wait and taking delivery is one of the best bits..... If only it was say a week ! It'll go fairly quickly. Unless you put a daily reminder on your signature ;-p
