Pictures shall be delivered! Just basically cleared out my E90 now and it's ready to go... Got the latest edition of Autocar today. They had a report about their 320d they had on their fleet, seems like they had nothing but positive reviews for it giving it 5/5 plus reading the letters page, showed me one person who bought a 320d after reading Autocar's report! I'm glad I found a well spec'd 320d for decent money.

Bring on Friday!!

Good to see another Melbourne Red on board and looking forward to the photos

I've still got the February edition of Autocar in which they reviewed the F30 and declared it "Brilliant, close to perfection" and gave it 5/5 ...and the review model was a red 320d Sport Line!

Yeah I've got that, Autocar don't hand out 5/5s that easily... 10.30am tomorrow and at least I have 45 minutes to enjoy the car before the world ends :P

In that case tell them you don't want a hand-over, just take the keys and go!

PS - wonder if a professional detailer can get lava & brimstone off the paintwork?

Probably not! Left the dealer about an hour ago & can safely say it is one of the best cars I've ever driven! Photos will be uploaded once I return home.
