How did you get foglights? In the US, the M-sport package deletes front foglights. Is there a way we can keep them like yours?

Fog lights are standard on M Sport spec in the UK!

Nice Car, does your adaptive suspension give the options on chassis only setting when selecting Sport?.

I can select whether sport mode alters the chassis, drivetrain or both, i leave it as both, seems the most fun

It was in the showroom so 3 days - could've been less if I had been able to do the finance earlier. Obviously this isn't representative of a factory order car.

Hi Msporty,

Nice looking car, pretty much identical to what I have on order. Can't wait to see one in the flesh! I notice from other posts that you use Lex as your company car provider. This is the same as me and this is the first time I've taken the option to get a car with them, I wonder if you can give me some idea of the process with Lex?

For example it seems that your expecte date at the dealer slipped? Did Lex explain why? Did you have a relationship directly with the dealer at all? how did you keep a track of the production process? lex have the Event log on their website but it seems to show little information and is updated very infrequently.

Anything you would do differently with the delivery process now you've been through it?

Only a 10 weeks left to wait...

Thanks,
John

Stunning looking car, I'm surprised they had a M Sport sitting in the Showroom as my local dealer told me they are expecting them in September earliest!

Me very likey

Finally saw the M Sport in the flesh today... It was Alpine White like the one i have on order along with the same 19" alloys, no xenon though. It was in the showroom of a dealer in Hailsham which I happened to be passing.

The M Sport wheel feels fantastic in the hands and those 403M wheels look amazing, a slightly deeper dish on the rear.

Unfortunately now I just want to get my hands on my car even more than I did before I saw the car... Next will be seeing one on the road. I think I may possibly explode between now and the end of October..!

Hi, yeh the date slipped due to a delay in transport from the factory to dealer, lex emailed me why on the day the date changed so no complaints there! No relationship from dealer as we have a fleet manager and I let them know the spec of what I want and they get quotes from lex. I just phoned up our company account manager at lex for updates, as basically my fleet manager got fed up with me asking for updates so just told me to do it

We always get our cars from lex, seem pretty good really, only annoying thing is I have to use a well known tyre company for tyres, who never have any in stock

Any other questions let me know!

Ha! Yes Msporty! Our company use Lex and we have to use the same tyre company. In the 5 years that we've been using them I've never managed to get any rubber first time round.

Not looking forward to any tyre issues with the F30 though, if they can't stock sufficient regular rubber, the chances of them stocking the correct run-flats are gonna be slim!

Fortunately there's a limited choice of tyres in RF in our size (especially the 255/35/19 size) so you're only gonna get good tyres, even if you have to wait a couple of days
