Would it come with all the maintenance services that the cars bought here get? I would do almost anything to save a couple thousand on the car. If anyone has any more info please let me know, after I've gathered up all the info I can about this Ill call one of these dealers or what not in Germany and have a little chat... I just dont want the phone bill to be as big as a payment Thanks alot for any answers guys, appreciate it!
There is a forum here on E90Post that has that info. http://www.e90post.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=30

You go to a U.S. Dealer. You tell them you want to buy a car through European Delivery. They set it up. You drive the sucker around in Europe. You drop it off at a drop-off point. BMW ships it to your U.S. dealer of choice.

There are many stories on this forum about people's Euro Delivery experiences. There is info on prices in the above forum as well.

BTW, here is the European Delivery Info thread: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=427

How much cheaper does this make the car? And would it be worth it if I live in the US? I mean I would have to pay for a trip to europe plus shipping for the car and stuff, wouldnt I?

I believe they are from a press release event in Germany

Here is a link to the thread that documents it

Hi Dev330,

sorry to tell, but it can't be lemon because it isn't available for the E92.
Either an until now undiscovered colour or jade grey.

Imagine the interior with roof in anthracite and grey poplar trim.

In my opinion I think it could be lemon. Options have not yet been released for most european markets and it is not unusual for them to have different colour interiors. Actually the same happens right now with the e90, lemon in Europe but not in the US.

Are already any options regarding interior and exterior colours released for the european market? According to the E92 Canadian Product Guide there are already 6 colours for leather dakota upholstery. E46 coupe offers 4 leather montana colours in Germany! Even the 5 er and 7 er BMW's offer only 6 leather colours in Germany! Do You really think there is any room for another leather colour? Sorry, I can't imagine. But sure, it would be nice, if we get lemon in europe because then, I have one more choice.

If anyone can surprise us with a pic of jade grey interior then we can confirm once and for all if that is jade grey or lemon, only thing is i see more yellow undertones then grey and its definitely not cream beige

Who has a pic of an e90 with lemon int, we can compair side by side?

Lemon?

The picture seems overexposed. I hope it's lemon, but it could be jade grey or even creme beige IMO.
At least the dash isn't beige. I don't like a beige dash.

Im stuck between these two mofos, both look very nice. I would perfer the BMW, but the g35 is the best bang for the buck. Judging from the other posts a new 335i with navigation and stuff would be pushing $60,000 after taxes and all the BS fees we pay in CA. A G35 fully loaded would be pushing about $45,000 (im just guessing on these #'s). Im a college student and dont want to spend to much money on a car now but I guess I'll make my final decision after I test drive both of them and do some intensive comparisons... I hate shopping for a new car (on a tight budget) lol.

I sure hope this is jade grey because I want to order it. I love super light interiors but not when they dominate the whole car like creme beige does. Creme beige really only looks good with a blue or green exterior. IMO.

We know that Canada doesn't have lemon as an e92 option but unlike the US we do have lemon for e90 so hopefully they didn't decide to drop it where as europe will still have it.

Guess we'll just keep waiting till someone on the inside can find out! Maybe we can write to the magazines that have these photos and see if they were told during the photo shoots what color this is.

Thanks to Jason for providing so much info on the E92.
It's a stunning new addition to the line and perhaps the best looking BMW model. This car will definitely hurt sales of the 6er coupe. Having previously owned an E46/ZHP coupe, I noticed that the new E92 does not have rear opening windows (take a look at the driver's door - only two window switches instead of four). In the E46 coupe, the rear windows were often the source of annoying squeaks, so perhaps having them permanently "fixed" in the E92 was the best solution. Otherwise, IMO BMW has created a spendid new machine with sensuous lines.

I just want to add that I think its complete BS that the US does not have lemon. It is by far one of the hottest colors for the E90, plus its one of the few two-toned options. Whoever made this decision should be fired... from a cannon, on the spot!

I agree! In my other car I always look at the tempature guage to make sure I'm not overheating the engine. Guess the only way to know on the E90 is when it's too late and steam is coming out of the hood.
