950 km's

Mainly commuting with the occassional opportunity to open the throttle. Engine is exceptional for a 2.0L and do not notice the turbo at all. 90% of driving in comfort mode which has more than adequate torque to put a smile on my face. I have tried sports mode briefly and the car turns into a beast and makes me want to race every motor on the road. Eco pro only good if your running out of fuel or your missus is driving.

Oyster/wood combination is absolute class and looks stunning with the crimson red exterior. Love the professional nav, large screen, 3d imaging and bluetooth audio. Radio reception disappointing although HK system is absolutely superb. Only other niggle is snap in adapter as a $350 extra - wha a rip off!!!

Extras I wished I had ordered:

1) Xenons
2) Aerodynamics kit (not available in red)
3) DAB

What I may retrofit:

1) Black kidney grills
2) M Performance 125i exhaust system (if approved for Australia)

All in all 9.5/10 and I have barely pushed the performance.

Very happy customer.....
