Finally! rjc3's 328 M Sport X Drive Glacier Silver has arrived!

Just got word from BMW of Anchorage that my car has arrived at dealer!

Specs: 328 X Drive in Glacier Silver
M Sport
Black Leather
Cold Weather
Tech
Premium
Xenon
M Sport Grills (to be installed before I pick up)

I realize that so many others have either already received or seen these before that the thrill is probably gone for most of you, but I can't begin to express my excitement. Hope to pick it up tomorrow afternoon, and will post more pics in spectacularly scenic settings ASAP, but here she is in all her protective shipping plastic glory:

Ugh, BMW of Anchorage tells me one of my adaptive headlights isn't functioning properly, and that I won't be able to pick up till Thursday afternoon or Friday morning. Not an auspicious start!

Sounds like they have ordered parts for your car. Hopefully, your dealer will have everything working properly BEFORE you take delivery !

Have you got your snow tires ready ?

I am very keen to see how those M Performance grills look on your Glacier silver M Sport.

I'll get pictures posted if and when I take delivery.

No snow tires yet. Going to hit Costco and see what they have first. I can get a set of Blizzak WS70s off Tirerack, but shipping to AK isn't exactly cheap, and want to see what local options I might have. Seems like most of the posters who are getting tires are buying a separate set of rims as well, but almost no one does that here. We just swap our tires out 2x/year.

And seems like I've seen a picture somewhere on this forum of a silver M sport with M sport grills, but not positive. I think the contrast between the glacier silver and the black grills should look pretty good.

PS: Vancouver is one of my fav cities in N. America. Beautiful place, and people drive the nicest cars there!

My local Costco has the Bridgestone WS70 in 225/45r18 for ~$750 mounted and balanced, so I'll probably go with those. But I'd like to seek other input before I pull trigger. They seem to get great reviews, and people in my area swear by them.
