Mines arrived

Just landed at the dealer and hopefully picking up at the weekend.

While not up to the spec of the other big engined E90s, its still an E90.
Pics are poor quality but will post more in due course.

Looks to be riding high but I think the suspension blocks might still be in.

Cant Wait

Looks v nice indeed. The one I have coming isn't mega spec either - cheer yourself up by thinking of it as added weight!!

Any particular reason why you aren't hanging on 2 weeks for plate change?

Surely there's gotta be a few hundred quid difference in a new plate, even if actually only seperated by a matter of days from an older one?

Unless you have costs which are likely to offset that gain (hire car or something) would it not be worth hanging on that little bit longer?

Looks good and it will go round corners just as well as any other e90, plus you get to save a fortune on the cost and fuel.

Well just so you all know this is a company car so no reason for me to wait for the plate change. Not alot of kudos nowadays with the twice a year thing.

Spec is

318d ES (Got too many points for the 320d and it only looks good on the 162's so had to cut down the price to the 318 to squeeze in the lease)

Solid Black
Anthracite
162 Wheels
Rain Sensors and Auto Lights
Loudspeaker Pack
Automatic Air Con
Interior Lights pack
Sports Steering Wheel
Model Deletion (had to really)

I will be going for chrome grill and bumper trim (A la 6Cyl)
Blacklines might not go down to well with the lease company.

Only 120bhp but I reckon with a remap, it'll do a sub 5 sec 0-60...

I would have thought the blacklines would be as cosmetically changed as the front grill.

just ensure you keep the orig lights to place back on when handback
