How Sweet It Is

Finally took delivery toda of my EBIi 328i M Sport with Coral red Dakota leather. First impression was.....I am in love! I think David said on another thread that EBII looks so much better in person than in photos. The combination of EB II with the red Interior is awesome. The colour combo is pretty special. The red leather also looks better in person than the photos. The red is deeper than most photos portray. .....and with the tinted windows it really looks cool. The car turned many heads today.

only issue was that the DAB tuner that I ordered was not installed as it could not be selected from idrive. Dealer is looking into what to do to resolve.

I have been getting to know her today and done just under 200km. I will upload some photos over the weekend. Right now the excitement of the day is being subdued with a nip or two of Laphroaig quarter cask and its close to time to retire for the night.

As hard as it is/was to wait for the M-Sport, the car certainly is more than fantastic. Congratulations on your purchase.

As to the DAB+ radio, it may have been missed, which is rare or may not be operational. I'm sure your dealer will have it sorted for you. Yes. DAB+ is available in Canberra.

Love the look of the Coral Red in your pics. Other pics online have made it look really really bright red, started to make me think my choice of CR was going to be a regret. But now seeing your pics makes me able to breathe a sigh of relief haha

Spikey, I also was worried that the CR would be too bright, possibly gawdy with the EB. Once I saw it live all my fears were gone. Even myhotos still make it look brighter than it is in the flesh.

You wont regret CR....and it looks hot with the EB. Everyone that has seen it says that my M Sport looks sexy.....and I ca t help but agree
