Factory collection

Just wondering if there is a factory collection option? I didn't do it on my Merc and felt a bit gutted I didn't afterwards......missed opportunity.

My BMW dealer didn't mention there was such an option, but reading about the US ED collections, guess it might be possible? Anyone know if you can?

I thought you could pick it up at BMW Welt?

http://www.bmw-welt.com/web_rb/bmw-w.../handover.html

"Your BMW partner or your BMW branch will be pleased to make an appointment for you to collect your vehicle and to explain the services for the preparation of your visit.".

Good luck if you do manage to arrange this - sounds like a great experience.

Unfortunately not guys....the UK is not in the permitted list...see the bottom of this webpage:

http://www.bmw-welt.com/web_rb/bmw-w.../overview.html

Not sure why this isn't possible considering other manufactures offer this option.

Yet another thing that means the UK is discriminated......Alcartara interior on the M sport is another one

Another one is not being able to get the 328i in 'Sport' (as opposed to M Sport) trim, like you can in the US and other countries

AFAIK that seat finish is only standard on the 3-series M-Sport in Australia. It's a no cost option on the 5-series M-Sport here...shame as it would be my choice of seat in the F30.

There isn't a Sport line for the 330d here either.
