This is of course assuming that what Lex tell me is correct....I won't get (too) excited until the keys are in my hand though

So have any M-Sports landed in the UK then??? I notice in the gallery forum some European cars have been arriving at dealerships in Spain and Holland.

Some of you guys mentioned you were getting early July delivery but we've not heard anything from you yet! Maybe you're too busy driving them!?!

I've not seen it for myself, but my local dealer gave me a call last week to say they had one in that I could go down and have a look at.

Well guy's early steps of moving up to new M Sport had new e46 330d M Sport Touring in 2001 then New e90 330d M Sport Salon 2006 and so undecided on new F30 dilemma no manual box option on new 330d and to be honest i'm gutted tbh was looking to move away to alcantara the new hex design and so disappointed that it is not coming to uk.

I was also disappointed as with the leather you don't seem to get the different colour stitching like the Sport and the nice line on the leather to break up the black and no Lemon leather for Black sappire, so know between the 328i and the 320d worried will be disappointed with performance of 320d after having two 330d's and worried about milage on the petrol any help welcome

My dealer has told me early September for my saloon 330d M Sport I have on order so would be disappointed if what you say is true.

Well it may be september early for the Saloon, but not the touring, the 22nd September is now the launch date for touring!.
I hope your car arrives in september, but I would ring BMW UK first to check.

Update from dealer is saying 330d m sport is expected 19.10.12 - 2weeks slipped due to factor closed in August? Sounds weird to me but am itching to get into it!

I ordered late July, and my dealer is confident that I'll be in the car w42 / mid Oct (w/c 15th). Advised that factory shutdown not really expecting to have much of an impact.

Seems to be a big delay on petrol engine production, maybe due to demand for diesel. My dealer had real trouble sourcing 320 petrol auto for me to test drive. Apparently factories are catching up!

I've been told my 330d is due at the dealer this week and I'm getting it on the 6th Sept.

Ordered mine through Lex on 31st July.

Lex site currently shows stock date as 1st Sept but I don't believe it as it has said this from day 1.

Got the news that my car is at the VDC in Thorne awaiting despatch to the dealer and that my new registration has been assigned today.

10 days to go!

Great news!

They seemed to have turned your car around very quickly (I recall you saying in another thread your build slot was a week after mine).

Mine arrived in the UK on Tuesday but dealer isn't expecting it until 29th (seems quite long to me?), so not sure if it'll be ready for a 1st September delivery as I have some accessories that need fitting as well.

Good that we're both so close to the finish line now! Seems like an age ago we were discussing our specs when we first ordered!

Checking the VIN details my car was "born" on 13th August and arrived in the UK on Monday according to my dealer. Like you, mine isn't due to get to the dealer until the 29th but I am assured everything will be done and ready to go for the 1st September. I even got to go through a few number plates today to choose which one I wanted.

It does feel like an eternity has passed since we were both discussing the specs all those months ago. Now, here we are at the delivery room doors with the cigars on standby
