Wow...Great.

I also ordered for a Black Sapphire, but still waiting. Schedule to be mid of June delivery. But most likely will be beginning of July.

What color of interior you have ordered?

See if anymore people see this thread, and then we organzie some event. But most likely wait till my car delivered.

My 335i is a 100% stock car. Only changing the rims and tires with all factory sport suspension and sport seat only. No modification at all. And I'm satisfied with the performance without any mod. I think it's good enough in HK.

Before ordering the F30, I also struggle whether I will lost that pick up power or anything which I don't want to miss. But this N20 engine do have a lot of potential to mod which the figure will be similar to 335i, that's why. And also, save some money la...haha.

This is my fifth 3 series already. So, eagerly waiting for.

I've put down deposit for a 328i but the car has not been ordered yet, cos I'm struggling between a 328i & a 528i. They cost more or less the same after options.

dear clarence, it is actually not too hard a choice : if you want space, go for 528; if you want performance , then 328!

The problem is, interior space of F10 is not that much bigger than F30 (the biggest difference is boot *******. The F10 sounds more prestigious (it's a 5er) & the interior have better perceived quality.

I have this struggle before also....only 12K difference...That's why I also test drive the 528i also.

But, I do not require a spacious car and I prefer more in handling.. That's why...

My wife said also a bit boring....again a 3 series.

When the time I ordered, no one tell me they have stock...I ordered somewhere around end of Feb... The first shipment is all sold according to the salesman...That's why I have to wait...

I think those car are ordered by someone before, that's why u are lucky, no need to wait.

Also, some advice for your choice.

I choose F30 not only because of the handling....

Coz, 80% of the time my wife drives alone. I'm not working in HK.
15% of the time 2 people in the car. (Me and my wife or maybe include my dog)
Only 5% of the time, during weekend, may carry more than 2 people including the driver. That's why, I choose F30.

So, it also depends on the utilization of your car.. If most of the time you carry 3 to 4 person....then, be kind to them.

Anyone knows where to get the option prices for HK ? i checked the BMW website, the PDF only shows the options but no price, the website lists the base prices of the cars, the configurator does not work ...

U have to ask the sales to quote some of the less popular options.
Wht do u want to know? I have prices of most of the options for F25, F30, F10 & Gran Coupe.

Let me tell u, the car will rarely carry more than 2 pax. I think even for 4 pax the F30 is still more than sufficient, only that the pax will find the F10's interior more fancy.

I find the only useful thing re that feature is the easy entry/exit system.
