Yeah the blue does look nice. On the ebay pic I wasn't sure it was close enough to the EBII as i've the EBII inlay. I also wasn't so keen on the M logo, looked a bit big so went with xDrive.

I was torn between the black and blue. I didn't think the blue would match but went with the Blue in the end...

Hoping the weather won't interrupt the car being delivered tomorrow, but have registered the connected drive and seems to be communicating with the car.

Make sure you don't ejaculate prematurely. Practice the rythm method and check the leather is not baggy.

Advance congratulations.

Go to bed and have a wet dream about tomorrow.

Just gone out to inspect my two babies. Bloody windy and freezing. One poor thing has gone blue with the cold and the other one looks bloody red with frostbite!

Bet you'll be upset to see your babies if they have turned all white tomorrow...

Got the car. It came on a transporter and she was covered in salt from the motorway. Didn't get chance to make any changes I wanted as been running everyone round

Absolutely love the car! Neighbours have commented on how nice the EB colour is...

My only gripe is the lack of support for the iPhone 5. The car has the enhanced Bluetooth, but the connection registers the phone for talk only. Nothing else.

Getting used to no keys as I keep going for the keys when turning off.

Also coming from a manual to auto, huge difference. Need to get used to but is so lovely to drive.

Subject to weather I'll get car washed and parts replaced by weekend

I have Prof Nav and an iPhone 5 and when the phone is connected via bluetooth , new text messages show on the iDrive screen. You can read them, reply and forward them through iDrive too.No emails or calendar entries though.

On the iPhone you need to set notifications to "on" for "Messages" in Settings.

The messages are deleted from iDrive after the ignition is switched off and the phone is disconnected.

Congrats mate!

Can't wait to see pics of your mods! I'm particularly interested in the rear spoiler and the installation of the silver indicators bulbs!
