The tints were done, or I should say arranged by my dealership on the morning before delivery. The actual tinting company is called 'Pacific Window Tinting', they did a ceramic tint.

CONGRATS my friend! You have some stunning pics of your new Bimmer! The Mineral Grey and Mojave look very similar. I think I would have had a hard time choosing between both if these were the two in the showroom when we were searching for our Bimmer. I also like the combo of your Mojave with what appears to be Veneto Beige! And you already got your Bimmer tinted.

Quick question. Did you get the sunshade option? Did it also include the powered sun shade in the back or just the side manual sun shades? You gotta provide some interior pics. Really want to see that Veneto Beige interior and how it complements the Mojave. Does Hawaii require a front license plate or will you keep that BMW Honolulu plate in the front? I'm still debating whether or not to get a Bimmer marquee plate.

I told you that your waiting time would fly by fast and would truly be worth your patience! Again congrats and officially welcome to the F30 club! I swear that Mojave in your pics looks like a Mineral Grey.....Maybe they sent you a Mineral Grey by mistake. haha!

Hehe you're right, there's a lot of similarity indeed but it's still a tad off, and the cool part about that, I think, is that hardly anyone has that color (and me being the first in Hawaii to have it ). And, haha, no way, it's really no MG, there was a MG in the showroom when I picked my car up and the difference is noticeable

The powered rear sun shade is included with that option, and I'm glad for that too. When I originally did my test drives, only the Sport Line had the powered rear shade, the Luxury didn't but, thankfully, it's included after all

No worries, interior pics will be made and posted later today =)

Congrats!! It has been great fun following your journey to your new vehicle. The color combo looks fantastic. My wife and I are picking ours up this evening! Like the others have mentioned, please post some interior pics when you get a chance.

Ok people, I was just in the car for a bit, waiting for the Sirius radio to get activated and decided to take some interior pictures while I was waiting.. They're not the best pictures around but it will give you a decent idea of the interior =)

Great, great pics. I just noticed on the back seats, did you get the cold weather package? I figure for Hawaii it's not necessary, haha, unless you're going up Mount Haleakala. When I went to visit years ago, it can be a 50 degree difference from sea level to the top of the mountain!



BTW, love that havana color so, classy.

Wait times

Svache - I have always bought my cars off the lot. First time I am ordering. My order has been sitting at the Port in germany for about 10 days now.

How long did it take from time the BMW website showed enroute to U.S. to dealership in Honolulu?

Thanks in advance

Mine was done on 3/22. It finally got on a boat 4/11. Depends where your car is queued up when it gets to the dock. A friend of mine had the same experience... sat at the port for almost 3 weeks before getting on a boat.

Loving that interior and all those gadgets, nice work! That colour combo with the anthracite trim looks very classy IMO.

Thanks for getting some more pics up so quickly.

Beautiful car. Color seems to have a little more depth than the MG, which I also really like. Anthracite wood ftw. Congrats!
