Thanks alot. I was aiming for a classic, but still semi-sporty look with the 17" rims.

Btw, I understand that you ordered your car this week, and the order is already locked now. I ordered my F20 in November and it's still not locked! I asked my dealer how this could be possible. If I understood him correctly, 116d is so popular that they basically just order them before the customer has asked for it. So when they get a customer, they update the order according to the customer's wishes. I don't know if I understood him correctly or if it's even true, but it could be a plausible explanation.

I don't think they sell many 120d's, so I'm in for a long wait. At first I was told mid February, then late February, then maybe late February. The latter is the last information I got, and I interpret it as "mid March". I also read that BMW are experiencing delays due to lack of parts for the sports automatic, so maybe it'll be April before I have my car.
Bradbury. I got the impression that it was their backoffice that edited this order, so you might be correct that it was an already existing order.
I really feel for you if you end up waiting 4 long months...
