I think you should get it for free since it was pictured when you ordered. Yup WAS.

Yup, what he said. I would add that welt is German for world- i.e. "BMW World"

Regarding the footrest- that's absolute BS. BMW keeps screwing up on these cars. No Bluetooth/USB in 2000 cars, M-sport steering wheels in sportline cars, this botched footrest issue, wheel shortages, what is the deal, BMW? They streamline everything with these lines and then they cant manage to get it right. Very disturbing.

edit- can add to the list of issues a car that was ordered with heated seats and came without them to the list. well not totally without them. apparently they were installed but the buttons on the control panel were not installed and thus they cannot be activated. imagine if they had been locked in the on position by this.

yea I thought it was just a on-line builder thing- but now there's a thread on it because someone saw a car on the lot that had this in it. and the m-sport wheel was listed as an item under the sport line package as if it were supposed to be there.

I will stop by the dealer on Monday and find out what my options are. From what I was told (I haven't read the bulletin yet), ALL M Sport beige leatherette's will not have the M footrest. If this is true, that is major BS; plenty of grounds for false advertisement (order guides, online configurator include the M footrest just like black interior).

9 hours from Atlanta, 767-400ER with Delta.

It's 6 hours ahead of EST over here. I got in this morning, picked up a sim card for my phone. Went into town, and couldn't avoid it. I went to the Welt and roamed around for two hours. If I'm this excited now, it's going to be scary in 36 hours...

Going to bed now at 9pm, because I've been up for a long time. Picking my buddy up in the AM at the airport, then going to Dachau for a more somber view.

Wink (F30) Official ESTORIL BLUE II F30 Photo Thread

Strangely enough, despite being a different factory, a different car, a different dealer, and 2,650 miles further west, it took exactly 73 days from order to delivery both the first and second time I've ordered a 335i.

Part 1

I came out of an E92 M3 this time. There are so many unique differences about the F30 - for better or for worse; I am just thrilled.

Took delivery this morning, so everything is still very, very fresh. But here's some quick notes:
  • The 6MT is very notchy. The distance between gears is tiny. So at first, it is different and feels strange; but once you get in rhythm it shifts excellently.
  • Headreasts are insanely improved - Cushioned, soft, and my head actually rests on them now!
  • The sport seats are perfect, just like before.
  • Comfort mode with M Adaptive suspension is "bouncy" in a very, very good way. I have never driven a three series which I could describe in this way until now.
  • Eco pro is excellent on the highway, Reminds you when you forget to shift because you're busy doing other things you shouldn't be doing
  • Harmon Kardon is somewhat tinny and average from it's first impression - Definitely need to play with the settings & hoping there's improvement to be made.
  • Seeing those beautiful angel eyes reflecting the first time will give you a nice little chill
  • The navi screen is positioned wonderfully, as well as the iDrive controller.
  • M Sport steering wheel! PERFECT.
  • The F30 is BIG. At least it feels that way. Maybe I am more biased coming out of two E92s, but everything feels huge. This is what I was expecting & looking forward to, so it's a very welcome change for me.
  • ASS is great as well. Not sure why everyone is complaining? It inconspicuously turns off when your car is ... stopped. Then turns back on the second your foot touches the clutch. Yay gas savings.
  • Estoril Blue II is unbelievable in person. Pictures simply do not do this color justice. Really, go see it for yourself.



On to the good stuff:

Morning workout before delivery time. A nice day to buy a BMW. (Who are we kidding; when isn't it nice here?)



Goodies ready to go.



At the dealer - The suspense kicks in right about... now.



She's pulled up front right away. My first time seeing her. I achieved my goal of my own Estoril Blue II 335i being the first time my two eyes ever see the actual color in real life - Score!



All wrapped up and new!



My first look inside.






My first sight after signing the paperwork upstairs.



A little closer, please. Those stunning headlights have my full attention...



Well those didn't last very long...



...... No words for this one



Perfect.
