Black Dakota leather

Media package - BMW Professional Multimedia
Visibility package
19" M light alloy wheels Star-spoke style 403 M
Adaptive M Sport suspension
Variable sport steering

Sun protection glass

Roll on err... next year

And I wonder how many times I'll do this in the meantime...

Wow and I thought you were only getting your test drive next week.

Great spec, red leather might be nice with the Grey exterior ???

Are you leasing or PCP, would be interested in hearing some figures if you don't mind as I haven't been brave or silly enough to ask my dealer yet .......PM if easier.

Cheers guys

.

And yes the test drive is next week but hey, what's not to like? And in all honesty I wanted to get the ball rolling. In the unlikely event that I hate the 330d it's not too late to change.

Red leather would have been nice and I was quite keen but I just can't get on with red leather and any sort of aluminium trim. It just doesn't go in my opinion. So that left me with walnut (!) or individual piano black which is . Hence the black leather.

That sounds one hell of a car and a good deal if it's a smidge cheaper than your E91.

I seem to have missed the problem with your car though, must be on another thread somewhere, will search it out.

I did but not with aluminium trim. I actually did like the walnut though the dealer was horrified. But a trim sample and a completed car are two different things and didn't want to take the risk.

I remember the spot weld thread now. Didn't remember it was you Rich though.

Which Spot welds failed ? Why did it affect your car? Had you owned of from new?

Also the new F30 will looks great in the flesh,

Congrats Rich.

Really liked it and I hope you enjoy your new ride.

Please write a short review when you get the car.

Oh I certainly will. As previously mentioned, I'm in a 330d tomorrow for 24 hours so I can post up my thoughts then too. Though having been in a Mini One since the beginning of September I'm guessing I'm going to like it.

I'll be interested in seeing how the 19s work out too. The demo has them but it was the only option I was unsure about. Even with the adaptive suspension I'm unwilling to sacrifice ride for the sake of looks. We'll see. It's not too late to alter spec. If it's too uncomfortable I might add another gadget like the HUD

The demo I had was on 18s with adaptive suspension. Ride was really good and you really feel the difference putting it into Sport.
