Yeah, the 318d I saw didn even have leather and navigation lol
Still cheap though considering there is probably room to a little bit of extra haggling

Ok, so which one of you parked your EB 328i across the parking bay in Chadstone Coles carpark this morning?

The top photo has my dirty car in the foreground, which I washed later in the day, and the eb car in the background.

The second photo I snapped whilst walking past the other car. Even had tinted windows as well. Blurred iPhone 4s rubbish photo.

Well, my car was exclusive for a short time there. Still quite rare here.

I've only seen one with a m-sport kit, ever. (m-sport without xenons)

but I see at least three or four base, luxury and sports models daily.

I didn't know they imported new non-leather BMWs into Australia? I thought it was only an North American thing where the base 3 series is really really bare bone where they talk about vinyl or cloth trims. I am yet to see a non-leather bimmer here in person.

Plenty of no-Nav Bimmers around though especially with the advent of smart phones.

It's called Sensatec, a man made leather. At the F30 launch, it was standard for 318d, 320d and 320i. This may have changed since.

It looks almost exactly the same, I noticed because of the absence of stitching on the door panel..

The navi is easier to notice though (no glossy black bezel on display unit)

Well I was spotted and introduced to Eric's wife just a few mins ago at Stillwell BMW. We were collecting or F30 EB cars at the same time and said hi. So, which one are you good sir and it was nice to meet your wife, albeit for a few moments.

In fact there were 3 F30 EB cars at Stillwell this afternoon. The other was a demo.

I told her about the Care Care meet on Friday. Hope you can make it.
Cheers.

Very good. LOLOLOL
By the way, for those who didn't make it to our impromptu meeting which, by the way was great apart from it being cold outside, the EB is mine and the lovely black one belongs to J1n. Both cars parked next to each other tonight.

Yeah, nice euro plates J1n.

Oh, and I spotted a mineral white Sport line F30 this evening parked across the road. Cool car with the tints Seph.

Cheers guys.

Hear hear. All cars looked fantastic but I have to say that the EB2 really shows off the m sport lines! No wonder it's BMWs showcase colour.

Got to check out the HUD for the very first time since no friggin dealers would spec it on their cars. Very neat and damn futuristic.

Saw another EB2 M sport during lunch time in Moonee Ponds. Guy had a big grin on his face, not sure why Shame it didn't have the Xenon lights.

Oh, I dunno. Maybe the one where you rock up in your beautiful white F30, and park somewhere in Poath Rd yesterday. Wild guess on my part, of course.
