Anyway, good to e-meet you all and look forward to the useful resources, as
well as some interesting banter.

Hi Dannyb21, had to search what LCI meant... Lol. Why did BMW not just call it facelift...

Anyways what car have you ordered?

Yes, sorry used the BMW 'lingo', sadly it didn't mean anything flash. Ordered my car last week and have been advised it will be available end of march.

Spec as follows -

320d M-Sport Saloon
Sports Auto
Mineral Grey with Red leather
Brushed Aluminium interior trim
19's
Sun Protection Glass
Pro Media Package
Visibility pack
Debadge
Heated seats
Split rear seats

Think that's about it? Looking forward to it, having had a weekend test drive a few weeks back in the snow, so roll on delivery day!

Nice. I wanted to go with the brushed aluminium but the EB trim was only available with the hexagonal trim

So I make that 3 M Sports due end of march for those of us on this forum...

Hi everyone, another newbie here. Yesterday I ordered the following

320D M Sport Touring
Estoril blue
Black dakota leather
Professional Multimedia
19"M Star-spoke style 403
Sport auto
Sun Protection glass
Electric folding mirrors
Heated front seats
EB interior finisher
Front & Rear PDC

Ordered yesterday as factory build starts Monday and should be delivered 0n 12 March 2013.

I have part exchanged an F61 520D M Sport Touring which I bought new in Dec 2010.

I test drove a 330D Touring too and whilst it was monstrously quick the times I could use the power were limited in every day use and also I felt paying over 45k was too much for a 3 Series !

Now thinking what other options I should have gone for.....

Today I upgraded the spec again slightly by adding the visibility pack which includes xenons, headlight washer, high beam assist and adaptive headlights.

That's it definitely !

Good upgrade to the spec Steve, I was about to suggest you needed the Xenons added.

That's the main thing I regret not speccing on mine - have seen ones with and without Xenons and the standard set-up just doesn't compete, both aesthetically and also visibility.

Three weeks and four days for mine - but who's counting....

Nice! A friend of mine mentioned seeing an M Sport yesterday but didn't have the xenons. He was checking to make sure I had them on my car... Lol

The lack of Xenons on my car spec is my only disappointment but an upgraded stereo and lumbar support are a must driving anything up to 1k miles a week.

....and not forgetting mine comes with the DAB radio as standard.

I was offered a choice of built cars from stock with BMW however none of them had the DAB radio option and the specs were not exactly what I would have chosen. I was planning to have the car delivered this month but when the dealer offered a factory build, spec to choice 2013 car with DAB and mid March delivery it was an easy decision to make.

I think all new Builds after Jan include DAB as standard. But many are reporting that DAB is not that great on the F30???

I heard that about DAB, but have also heard that if you set it up in an area with strong reception you should be fine.

Well if BMW can't make it work as well as the 2yo unit in my Seat Leon I would be very disappointed.

Still waiting on a date. Chasing them up at the moment, but not holding my breath as the leasing company through work are rubbish... Took em 6 weeks to actually place the order, but they assured me on the Jan 14th that they placed the order. May have had something to do with me refusing to get off the phone, till they confirmed they were placing the order.... lol

I think the general consensus is......

If you live in a big city (London for example) and only drive 2 miles in any direction....and only listen to one main station.....then DAB is no advantage.

If you, like me, drive all other the place, like a bigger choice of stations, then DAB is a godsend.......I'd pay 600 for it

Some will make you believe that DAB sound is squashed, but I have not found this. If you think ANY radio broadcasts in full high fi sound then you need to go to specsavers and have a hearing test.
