Any news on E92 in showrooms?

or anywhere else in the UK for that matter. Apart from redd355's sighting, I think we are still waiting. With only 9 days to go, I can't believe how secretive they are being when the thing is out there in N America.

Not seen any in showrooms, but I've seen a few on car transporters.

Look really nice in the metal.

Garage List
I spoke to the supplying dealer yesterday who told that he had not seen a coupe in the flesh yet..but had one to go out on the 23rd.

he also told me that my own 335D build had been completed (born?) on 12th Sept which happens tobe my own birthday...

He expects that it shoudl be ready for collection by 30th Sept..some 2 weeks earlie rthan they orginally suggested. I am sure this must be of the first few 335D's to his the Uk roads.

Off topic
I spoke to guy at the Gym his morning who drove his 535M from alicante al the way back to Northamptonshire recently.
A few hold ups alone the way kept the average speed down to 79.4MPH but his fuel consumption was 34.4 MPG.
He was also lent a 630 coupe when his was serviced and said how flat and lame it felt....but checking the OBC it had averaged 19.1mpg over the past 5,000 miles
.


Can't wait to feel that wave of torque....

Can't make Warwick but seems like BMW really are taking it down to the wire! Still, like red355 says, it will be good to be one of the first on the road!

Just dropped my car at Almondbury BMW in Huddersfiedl and parked in car park behind a 335i coupe in black with very nice 18s. Obviously awaiting PDi - in fact may just have been driven off the transporter that was also in car park!

So if you really want an early look, get down to Almondbury now!

Maybe it was yours then....

I'll have to look for it round Huddersfield then - give me details and spec etc and I'll kepp an eye peeled. Mine is a very sober looking 330d SE 4dr in silver with black dakota, and an RA06 reg number (a lease car).

To be fair to sales guy the car had probably just been delivered as I arrived so he would have been struggling to call you before I posted! And it was in its travel gear so not really how you would want to show a punter...

PS have you had any experiences of the garage in past - my first experience today with some work on my E90, so far seem pretty good but then my local garage is a branch of Stratstone so....

Ian,

Mine's a Space Grey with light grey interior and 189 wheels - oh, and auto!

Still not heard from my man at Almondbury!

Thanks

LOL! I will give him until lunchtime!

To be fair, he doesn't work Mon-Fri, 9-5 hours

Finally saw E92!

Bit of an anti climax. Called by the dealer and caught my man just about to leave but he grabbed the key and let me have a quick look and sit in. Must have been the one isleaiw saw. Black on black - the big 230 wheels (very nice), auto, satnav.

Still had all the protective stuff on so they haven't done anything with it yet. It's a demontrator apparently. They have another (blue?) in the workshop.
