When you mentioned it came up to the dealership on the transporter, that got me thinking, my one is going to be very dirty with the salt on the roads probably.
I have instructed my dealer not to wash it. I can imagine my wifes face when she sees the bonnet & roof spotless, after the protection has been removed, with the rest of the bodywork manky.
It's such a nice colour and suits the car.

I have tried to reply to a text message using the inbuilt dragon dictate which recorded the message but I couldn't send it via the IPhone - i will try again tomorrow.

Just think the BMW main dealer said the iPhone can't do any of this whilst saying a Blackberry has full functionality !
Was getting funny looks from the neighbours while sitting in the car configurin the phone, so i will check settings tomoz.

I though dragon was an additional paid for service you had to activate on BMW's website???

Blackberrys!!! Yes I heard about these devices, aren't they an endangered species now close to extinction.

I wondered why the iPhone was greyed out on the display

The Tax disc holds the paper copy showing you have paid the annual cost of the Vehicle Excise duty. This Duty is based on the CO2 emissions of the Car. For the 320D this is 30 per year. For a 335i this is 260 per year.

The common location is on the inside of the windscreen bottom right hand corner (passenger side)...

Nice, can you show me what it looks like? Here in HK we have a similar piece of paper that we stick onto the corner of the screen, but it is for Registration. I find it ugly so I want to find something nice to stick it in

Is your Duty paper shaped in a circle so it fits specifically into this disc? Or is it like a regular piece of paper that you fold/cut so that it fits? I'm wondering if the tax disc is big enough for my ugly registration paper. Even while I'm typing this I'm finding it hard to believe that I'm being so vain now that I have a new car

*EDIT* Nevermind, I googled what your tax disc looks like and it is already a circle. I don't think I can shape my rectangular piece of paper into a circle to fit it into the tax disc. Thanks anyway
