I've got it!

It arrived. It's perfect so far. It's beautiful. The neighbours are green with envy. The tech is driving me mad. It's been named Reinhardt. I wish I'd ordered 19" wheels. It's pissing down. I'm reading the manual already. I'm scared to drive it. I need a drink!

Congrat mate.

Yeah, the tech stuff..
Took me a few days to know exactly how to do what I wanted. But until then it's a little

Weather is really bad atm. Then again, a nice place to be, behind the wheel of a new motor in this weather.

Many thanks everyone. You are all great to be with.

This will make you laugh ... did not know how to lock it! Then realised it was the BMW Roundel that does it! Duh!
The spare key does not work. Probably has no battery in it.
Spoke to the dealer, they said to bring the key in and they'll check it out. Probably a dead battery or no battery at all!
It's pissing down and I'm going nowhere.

Aaaarggggh!

Here's a rotten picture. It was raining cats and dogs and I was running as I clicked!
Better ones will follow, I hope!

I was dissapointed with the 18's but they are growing on me more every time I look at them.

Same here. But, you cannot fix those machined 19" ones easily or insure them. Also, 18" will be more kerb proof and give a slightly better ride. What's done is done and it cost us less in cash but we lost out on the looks - big time!

Oh, DAB sounds rubbish in comparison to FM.

P64: Have you got your's?

The seat base has collapsed??should think the dealers got some explaining to do. Have you had chance to report this back to them yet

I have already emailed them.
I will also be sending a complaint to the Dealer Principal.
I am not pleased one bit.
