Thumbs up Coming soon......teaser pics

Today I was led into a small white room.........and there she was.....still grubby from her travels and covered in stickers and plastic covers, but still looking like she could swallow a Fiesta whole















Apologies for the poor pics....I would blame the iPhone camera but it was probably me trembling in front of such a magnificent machine

Cheers John

Not a straight jacket.....Hannibal Lecter style constraints....in case I drooled all over it

Seems to have all the options I asked for which is good, only thing I couldn't physically check was adaptive damping, speed limit display and the extra phone prep stuff.

The speed limit display can be bought up in the centre of the Speedo/rev counter panel right in front of the driver, just flick through on the button L/H side stalk.

That's a good point. How can one tell that the adaptive suspension is fitted to a car? I've never driven a 3er until the one I have. Is there any config in the iDrive that's only present on cars with this option?

Sweet mate. Mine should be at the dealers now, so I was led to believe.

Should be Monday, my day off too .

Going to ring them now to confirm actually. Look in to registering for the connected drive thing too.

I didn't realise the 330D had two buttons on the end of the left stalk, I pushed it and the headlights started doing some weird things. I need to figured speed limit display would only come alive whilst on the move?

Thanks for the kind words, I can't wait to take it for a spin (not literally)

Seems a few of us will be getting new cars next week, looking forward to seeing the pics and reviews

Best way is to physically look. Swing the steering onto lock and look to see the proportional valve sticking out of the damper strut.

iDrive configuration has the two options, drivetrain and chassis, but I understand that can be there in cars without the adaptive damping.

Someone without the adaptive option may confirm what is on the iDrive menu.

Double button is for High Beam assist and OBC.

Another with a few sleepless nights. Enjoy, good looking and well specced motor.

The bottom one controls High beam assist, it's the top one does the rest.
