Ordered!

Finally took the plunge. Today I ordered:

E90 335d A M Sport Saloon
Auto Dim Int+Ext Mirror
Black Dakota Leather
Bluetooth+Assist
Voice Control
Electric seats + Driver Memory
Logic 7 Hifi (DSP)
Navigation Professional
Park Distance Control (front)
USB/Audio (Ipod) Interface
Xenons
plus boring stuff like ISOFix child seat and floor mats

Awesome deal - my usual dealer more or less matched an internet broker price and gave me what I was looking for for mine.

The only difficulty now is colour, ordered with Black/Black but got a few days to think about it and just wondering whether to go LeMans. Would appreciate votes either way!

So excited. May delivery predicted although he thinks it could come back a bit from that.

:rocks:

LeMans with Lemon looks great and IMO its the best combination but the only thing i would worry about is how that lemon leather will hold up after a bit of abuse ?
Black/Black sounds very nice though

Oh BTW Great Spec

Thanks. Couldn't persaude the wife on lemon, partly for that reason, so it would be Le Mans w/Black or Sapphire w/Black. Or at a push Sparkling Grapphite with black.

We went for Le Mans Blue with Lemon Dakota, but paid the £299 for the interior and exterior protection and warranty. Another factor is that our car will only cover around 10K miles per year max and we don't have any dogs or little kids.

I am ordering LeMAns blue.

I feel as exclusive to M sport it helps the car stand out from the crowd.

The black is a good colour on the M sport also but felt it was not exclusive, I will really want to clean it everyday and my wife's car is black and wanted diff colour.

Difficult decision and i made my final decision after asking the dealer to put them together and stare for 20 mins!!

Black interior for me was the only choice as I have a kid a wife and a healthy appetite while driving!

hope this helps your quandry

I think Lemans is the way I'm heading. Worryingly my wife prefers black so we may be in for a long haul!

This picture is swaying it for me:

http://www.halfpenny.eclipse.co.uk/U...s/img_1228.htm

I think there's something M3 like about it.... don't flame me for saying that, it just looks great in that shot.

I also think it is more unusual, you don't see many around, the dealer preferred it, my brother prefers it, and most of you guys seem to.

Looking like lemans blue with black Thanks for input guys.

As the saying goes "I used to be decisive, but now I'm not so sure....."

Went to local dealership and saw Le Mans and Black side by side. No doubt the le mans looks stunning but for me the black looks classy as opposed to the sportier look of the le mans. I don't think the le mans will suit me, if you see what I mean so I may play it safe with the black.......

Congrats silver

Either colour will look great. The black might need to be squeeky clean to look at it's best though. But when it's clean it looks the business.

That said I'm more into the light greys and silvers

I guess I'm used to black - my E46 Convertible is black as you can see in my sig, but it is a pain to keep clean.... and doesn't seem like such a change. Was tempted by SG but missus not keen. This is tough...
