New Member and soon to be new owner

Post by Prabster »

HI Guys

Just wanted to say hello as i have placed my order for new 1 series. Been looking at th forum for a few weeks and decided to join as it looks like a good forum with a lot of good discussion and general help amongst the members

I went for 118d msport auto in black with dakota leather, tech pack 2 and sun protection glass.

Hopefully it will live up to my old faithfull E60 535d (not in speed but quality lol) which hasn't missed a beat over the last 13 years and 160k of ownership.
im waiting for a del date but will post a pic when it arrives

thanks
Pete

Welcome to the forum, it's great to hear how reliable your 535d has been. I picked up my new 135 last week, it's my first BMW for many many years so I'm new to how reliable BMW's are or aren't these days.....

Hi everyone, new to the site - coming from an Audi 😬. Put in an order for a misano blue m135i, m sport plus with leather. Car arrived at dealership last Tuesday morning, by 1pm was told dealership was closing at 4pm and not able to pick our car up, as it couldn’t be turned around in time totally gutted!!! Looked in on forum for a while, decided to sign up and feel a bit closer to our car 😢 by tapping into everyone else’s stories. Hopefully we’ll be able to add photos and pick up date eventually!!!

Would home delivery work if the dealer is closed, the car has to be registered, taxed and prepared for handover.....
