What are the deals like on the 330D X drive or are the dealers playing hard ball as its the new model they expect to be in massive demand - 6 months down the line their attitudes may soften a little.

Not yet, but looking to test drive one as soon as they come in and place an order in Q2 if all goes well. Where will you be ordering from?

As you would expect they are playing hard ball.

My local dealer is Barons of Farnborough. They already have 3 orders in for this model, soon to be four!

Shop around. Tell them you'll buy a new E Class or an Audi. Hate bartering.

Now, please answer my nosey question about what you have specc'd.

But whatever you do, don't get black seats, please.

Why? IMO they look awfully depressing and don't look expensive. Lack the bling factor. Look shiny too quickly. Beige for your Orange car.

Ma deah, you've practically specc'd the lot. That car will weigh a ton!!!
Just get Beige Leather seats please preferably in Individual. They look fabulous. Dakota Leather in comparison feels like Hippo Skin. You might as well go the whole hog.

Love Valencia Orange. Super choice.

BTW, glad you stuck with the 18" alloys.
But what about seat heating for the rear seats? A bit selfish not looking after your rear passengers.

Have a look:

I think that I will stick with the hippo skin and the black as it needs to be hard wearing and hide dirty marks. As I quite often am wearing work trouser which are normally dirty. And as for the rear passengers I don't carry any. I normally have the back folded flat so that I can carry either my gardening equipment or my kite buggying stuff.

I also have sensitive eyes, don't like bright light. So black is perfect for me.

I did look at the individual leather but decided it didn't go with the paint work!

Beige DOES go with Orange IMO. My taste is unanimous.
Then how about Black Individual? Come on, go for it.

I hope the Black Dakota does not have Red Piping. Have you checked? That will be an eyesore with your external hue.

Perhaps I should ask for orange stitching. Like the 1M Coupe has.

I bloody well hope so too, but you'll never get it.

In a previous post someone talked being offered a 7% discount so I would have thought anywhere between 7% and 10% percentage was ok.

What would your view be or have you a discount value in mind?

One dealer offered me between 4% and 5% and when I asked for further consideration sugested the x330 was a new model and would be difficult to get a hold of quickly so there would be no further discount. You can guess he aint getting my order.

I look forward to seeing pics of your car, pretty unique.

With that exterior colour I think black seats will look best so stick to it mate! Sounds like a great car you are ordering.

I went into the dealer this afternoon to fine tune my order. I've now added Black Kidney Grilles, Black Exhaust Pipe Trims, Black Alloys (400M) and Black Merino Individual Leather.

Saw a car with an individual interior in the showroom SO SOFT compared to the standard rhino skin!!

I'm possibly going to place my order by the end of the week as I am going away mid June and would like the car by then. I think it is a 12 week build for an individual car.
