New 116iA F21 finally ordered

Hello all,

I've been roaming these forums for a while now, occasionally responding as well. About a year ago I got the news that I had to get a new car leased, replacing my current Nissan Qashqai, and I started out with a VW Golf. A colleague mentioned the 1-series to me and I started checking it out.. Test drove the 118i two times and gave the 116iA a shot as well.. I definitely wanted an automatic gearbox and the 118i was a tad too expensive for me.

I am very, very happy to say that today the lease company gave the green light and my first BMW has been ordered.

I'll try to translate the options:

Car: BMW 11i6A F21 (three doors just look smoother, fits better too)
Color: Crimson Red (looks devilish)
Fabric: Dakota Black Leather
Rim styling: 16" 376 205/50R16

Options: (codes are from Dutch option-list, not sure they're the same elsewhere)
- 205 Eight-speed automatic gearbox
- 320 No type indication (I like a clean, smooth bum)
- 481 Sportseats
- 488 Electric adjustable lower-back (lumbar?) support
- 494 Electric heated front seats
- 521 Rain/light sensors
- 534 Automatic air-conditioning (the two-zone one)
- 5DC Outer rear headrests can be folded down
- 6WA Expanded instrument panel
- ZUK Two-person back seat (because it just looks awesome and I don't have many passengers anyway)
- ZB2 Business + it's a package in NL, consisting of:
- - 255 Leather sport steering wheel
- - 4AE Armrest in the middle
- - 502 Headlight sprayers
- - 507 Park Distance Control, rear only
- - 520 Fog lights in the front
- - 522 Xenon lights up front (LED-lights on the rear)
- - 544 Dynamic Cruise Control
- - 606 Business SatNav

Estimated delivery is somewhere mid October... Can hardly wait

I know there are plenty of these topics but I just had to share.
