6 weeks is about the norm really, not considering Christmas or factory being shut etc. So sounds about right, if not a bit on the low side...

Oops sorry, well that seems like quite a while, maybe it will come forward for you when it gets into the new year...

Here a the pics of my 'free' car. A little late...











And as anyone with the red interior trim will agree, it's no where near as in your face as those pictures appear to show!

Looks great The matt coral red trim line is actually really nice, it has a metallic finish and is sort of rubbery, definitely looks much nicer than pics would suggest; you can't get it for the M Sports but I've ordered the trim separately for my dealer to fit for delivery, thought it would go well with the coral seats

Good idea You going with the hexagon silver trim?

The black plastic trim in the SPORT scratches like a SOAB

Brushed alu actually; I have the hexagon in my 135i; fancied a change, and also the brushed alu in the F30 is much nicer than it was in the E90/E92 (which my 335d was and I didn't particularly like), it has more texture with the lines running through it etc.

You're quite right. In those pics and on the BMW configurator it looks bright red. In fact it's much more subtle with a kind of brushed finish.

Certainly does. I'm so glad I didn't spec it. A bit of a clean today has left very fine scratches.

A little update.

Still on track for week 6 (end of January/beginning of February) at the dealer. I had an email the other day informing me it was at the 'port of exit'.

Starting to get a little excited now

Nice one Rich, it should only be there for a few days max, then on its way over

Hi new to this Forum, been following a few of the threads on what people have ordered. I'd be expecting my 320d around now based on your order date Rich1068 but the leasing company from work have really messed up. Grrrrrr.

Picked it up at lunchtime today. Unfortunately only phone pics so far but the weekend is nearly here...









330d Auto is about as smooth as it gets.

A big to Lee Drewry and everyone else at Sytner Sheffield.

Very nice Rich! You must be really happy, it looks great.

I have an almost identical one on its way, not soon enough though!

Hi folks.

1st time poster & soon to be BMW owner.

About to complete the deal on a F30 328i M Sport.
Got a bit of a dilemma though. Can't decide on the colour though.
Since i started to look at the F30, i have always fancied the Melbourne Red.
After viewing various posts, some of the other colours are becoming more attractive. Estoril Blue & Mineral Grey.
Never noticed a poll on these forms on the most popular choice of colour.
