Ordered F31

New in this section - I'm an M5 owner so usually over there - but ordered a Luxury 328i Touring yesterday so I thought I'd drop by. Looks like a March build with a June delivery. The car replaces my wife's 2004 E500 wagon.

Here's the spec

Mineral White/Saddle with Anthracite roofliner.
Sports Seats
Adaptive M Running gear
Alarm
Variable Sports Steering
Comfort access system
Panorama Roof
DAB + Tuner
HK Surround Sound
TV
HUD
Professional navigation
Sunblinds for side windows
Seat heating - front seats
Burled walnut trim
Highlight trim finishers
Xenons + adaptive + high beam assist
Lane Change warning
Parking assist
Telephony/smartphone connectivity


Any other 328i Touring buyers here?

well not a 328i unfortunately but my 320i m sport touring has just arrived from Germany and i should have it by end of next week.

I was told production on 328i touring was delayed till May, thus being a August delivery.
I was initially looking at the 328i but the delayed build date changed my mind, plus the fact i would have lost my license very quickly with a 328i

Your touring will be super classy

Congtrats! That is darn near fully loaded.

Which colour interior did you go with? You have the option of anthracite wood trim! Did you know and have you seen it?

Is the adaptive running gear the adaptive suspension?

Congrats on your impending arrival.

Interesting info on the delay in 328i production. I'll have to wait and see.

Interior is Saddle Brown. Yes, I've seen the anthracite wood trim alternative.

Yes, I think the adaptive running gear is the ordering system's name for adaptive suspension. It cost $2200 if that helps confirm it.

im sure it was the dealer making stuff up, so i would get a 320i

If you have ordered one, i would say March would be correct as that is what i had heard previously as well

Thought it might have been saddle brown. The walnut does match well with that.

Yeah I think adaptive with LCT is about that much. Without LCT it is $1500, but you would be well and truly over the threshold

I'm going back to BMW Sydney this weekend to have a second test drive on the 320i M Sport but the dealer knows i'm keen on 328i as i really like the power from the sedan 328i M sport.

i was told if i order this month, the car will leave Germany in July -> in Sydney about August/September (perfect timing for me as my finance of the current one will finish by then).

Would love to see a 328i Touring review soon.

Enjoy and Congrats.

Got my F31 320ED 8AT last week.

Didn't order DAB, rear park sensors, cruise control, Bluetooth, etc but got it anyway ;-)

Got the visibility pack and sports seat though. ZF 8AT excellent with stop/start.

DAB cuts out when no signal and doesn't revert to FM, despite selecting that option.

Xenon high beam failed on first use.
Already spent 2 hours with dealer.....grrrrr

There's no "up" on the passenger side heater control - Bit odd.

Apart from that...Doing 56mpg already!

First time post. I've put a deposit on an Alpine White F31 328I M Sport. Panorama Roof & Aluminium Satinated Roof Rails. Delivery in 3 weeks. I've asked about optioning Park Assist, Nav Pro & Internet & waiting to see what they can do. They've thrown in the Advanced Driving Course at Eastern Creek which I am stupidly excited about.
Unfortunately no demo models in Sydney at the moment so test drove a F30 328I which was awesome.
It appears the first time I will see one in the flesh is the day I take delivery.
I'm replacing my 1999 VT Commodore Wgn with 240,000 ks on it. As you can imagine a massive upgrade.

Congrats on taking the plunge.

My car is somewhere between Fremantle and Melbourne. The dealer expects to receive it on the 25th so still a chance for delivery this month.
