Ordered my M-Sport! Anyone else?

As per this thread, finally got my 328i M-Sport ordered today!

http://www.f30post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=693296

To say I'm excited is an understatement.

Unfortunately build is showing as mid August with delivery end of August/September.

Interestingly, when we ran a 320d M-Sport through the order system, it showed as a June build with delivery at the start of July.

Was tempted to go with the diesel (As it is the sensible choice and cheaper!), but decided not to compromise as its my first BMW.

Coming from years of owning hot hatches, it was time to grow up but have some fun too

Anyone else got a M-Sport on order? What are your delivery times looking like?

Yep, ordered my M Sport today. Went for the 330d with xenons. Must say it's fantastic package. It comes with sports automatic and metallic paint plus a few extras over the 320d for £5k more. 520d to 530d is over £9k more and that doesn't include sports auto.

Can't wait!

Went for Estoril Blue.

Nice!!


To be honest, I didn't even look at the 330d, but that sounds like a great deal. I originally placed my deposit down prior to the 330d becoming available for test drives, but going off the specs now, it seems like a great engine.

I would have given it some consideration myself had I known!


Did you go for the M-Sport blue brakes? I had them ticked but decided to take them off at the last minute thinking they were a unnecessary luxury, and also that it wouldn't go well with sapphire black.

However, I'd imagine it'd look awesome with Estoril Blue!

I didn't go for the blue brakes. I kind of maxed my budget. The 330d spec had pretty much everything I wanted except the xenons that I added.

I went to the local BMW dealers today to find out more about the 330d and the options, I'm looking to buy soon. Well it's a present for me from the future in-laws.

He said they're not getting them into the showroom until September. Just looking at the cars I was temporariliy tempted by a 5 series when sitting in it.

Talked me out of the HUD too.

Saddle brown is not shown as an option on the UK car configurator, not even as an "individual" option. How did you order that?

Don't mean to rain on your parade.....but I don't think you'll be taking delivery in July. They start the builds in July, maybe that's the date your build is scheduled to start?

Either way, congrats on your order Same model as me, what spec you load up on it?

I'm not holding my breath that's for sure, ordered through Lex and they emailed to say expected delivery date to them was the 12th! I'm with you though I very much doubt it.

Awesome spec dude!

I'm with Lex too but our company just had a balls up with the discount BMW offer, so I just found out my car hadn't even been forwarded to the nominated dealer until today.

Hopefully you get your car quickly and don't have to wait too long. I'm choking to take delivery of mine!

July delivery would be amazing!

Only additions to mine were;
Estoril Blue II metallic
Bi-Xenons w headlight washers
Full black panel display

Went for the black Dakota leather with the Hex Alu trim with the blue finisher. was really hoping to get the alcantara but they ditched that option here.

That took me to the top end of my car allowance. I really wanted the HK sound package but can't complain.......at least I'm getting the best car that I can within my allowance

Checked today, 12th July is still estimated delivery date! Coming from an Alfa 159 i can't wait. Picture of what the new one will look like in AW

Looks super fresh in AW!

Just been on the Lex website and it's showing as UK stock date of 13th August. They reckon to allow 10 days for registration etc, so hopefully mine will be in my grubby little hands on 23rd August! Fingers crossed.

I hope you get the July delivery dude. Pics as soon as it arrives!

Sadly neither the M Sport nor the 330d were available when I ordered back in March... plus I didn't realise the Touring gets a panoramic sunroof, rather than the 'serving hatch' the saloon gets.

Still, I'm gonna enjoy it all the same

The 328i is a big saving over the 330d - 4200 and that will buy you a lot of options.
Having said that, I wouldnt make my mind up until I've tried a 330d if I were you. Wait till one becomes available to test and then make your decision. You might be that blown away by the 330d - you may just have to have it.

For me, I'm waiting for a possible 335d. Hopefully BMW will still produce the 335d but with the F10 313bhp power unit.

Sounds good.


But I'm asking myself..... why the f*** is my 328 M-sport taking so long?!?

Ordered mine 23rd May and its still showing as August 28th delivery........


So jealous that your 320d's seem to be rolling out so much quicker.....
