Hi guys. My order was confirmed on 4th January, with build for this week (6), the dealer expect to receive the car on 4th March so handover pencilled in for Saturday 9th March. This is for a 320i xDrive M Sport with sport auto box.

(this was my first post too!)

My first post.

I ordered a F31 330d this week and I am excited! The estimated delivery date on the vehicle contracts says end of March. A couple of questions I was hoping someone could help: I went for the SE spec and Business Media package and am now having second thoughts.

1) I went for the SE spec because I intend to park the car on street in a relatively high crime area. This I hope would mean it attracts less attention although it clearly looks less good. Apart from the looks and sports seats, is this something I will regret?

2) I chose Business Advanced Media as oppose to Professional Advanced Media as the saving was approx £1000. It seems it's the smaller screen and lack of traffic information are the main differences, as it should also work with the HUD. Are my assumptions correct here? The dealer has been vague on this.


Thanks!

In reply to:
1/ I do not think SE or M Sport will detract from theft, if they want it , it will go. I would opt for the M Sport BUT if funds will not go to it then SE is fine.

2/ The new Professional Navigation system has some glitches, but by the time yours arrives this should be sorted, again it depends on "Funding", I have had the Business system in a new 5 series lent by BMW UK for the last month and found it OK, yes the screen is smaller but if you can live with that then OK.
You still get Traffic info if "Dynamic" is ticked.

What spec have you ordered sunscreamer? If my order was 10 days after you, I would then estimate mid march for mine

Agree with JohnBmw6. If someone wants the car they'll nick it!

There was only two reasons I went with pro media the screen size and the mobile apps integration.

I did look at the HUD but considering I wasn't getting the speed limit display, lane warning etc, thought HUD would only show limited info

So what spec did you order?

That is way too long for me, I'd crack up... My car should be end of March and I think that's too far away...

So what was the final spec you went with?

I finally settled for the following:-

F31 330d xDrive M Sport Tourer

Valencia Orange
18” M Light Alloy Wheels Star-spoke style 400M with mixed tyres

Black Merino Leather - BMW Individual
Brushed Aluminium Trim
High-gloss Black interior trim finisher

Packages
Interior Comfort Package
Advanced Parking Package
Visibility Package
Active Security Package
Media Package - BMW Professional

Options
Heads Up Display
Loudspeaker system - Harman/Kardon surround sound
Internet
Enhanced Bluetooth telephone preparation with USB audio interface & voice control
Model designation deletion
Towbar, fully electric
Panoramic glass sunroof
Sun protection glass
Exterior mirrors - folding, auto dimming
Steering wheel heating
Lumbar support, driver and front passenger
Seat heating, front
TV function
Active cruise control with “stop and go” function
Sport automatic gearbox
Adaptive M Sport suspension
Variable sports steering
Comfort access
Surround view
Speed limit display

Other Items
Black Kidney Grilles x2
Black Tailpipe Covers x2

The reason it will take so long is that the paint job has an 8 week lead time as it is not normally an option on this car. It is a 1 Series colour.

You are of course right about whether it gets nicked. If it's going to happen it's going to happen and there's no use worrying about it!

This is the spec I went for:

F31 330d SE
Mineral Gray
Adaptive Suspension
Visibility Package
Venetian Beige leather
Sunroof
Business Media
HUD
Speed limit display
Adaptive Cruise Control
H/K speakers

Wow Captain that is some spec!

I too thought hard about the xdrive as I live in London, it's difficult to justify it! Great Spec!

That looks like just about every option is ticked

That must be well over £50k full list price - the salesman must have thought Christmas had come early !

Should look stunning in Valencia Orange too.

Would you have a part number or code for the tailpipe covers? Are they an M performance part? Can you give me a guide price as I was told they are unavailable at moment.

PS Could someone steer me on how to upload photos. have searched the forum and im having difficulties uploading 20" performance wheels on a EBII M sport that I saw. Thanks

My order was confirmed today with estimate delivery end of April. EBII 330dxdrive. Like yourself have gone over on the options most except TV and surround view. Going with M performance interior and M performance diffuser so would like the tail pipes to match. Sticking with the 18" wheels.

Well done zorroone on placing the order, what dealer gets your business and did you make them squeal with pain at your discount requests??

( I'm in NI too so I'm interested in hearing how the local dealers competed against eachother, PM if easier please. )
