Koalway kid,

How long have you had yours? Is it true you can actually see 3D buildings on the nav screen as well?

Only had mine a couple of weeks and still getting use to it, but collected it from Sytner Cardiff, all the major buldings in Cardiff pop up in 3D very cool... so i guess this applies to most UK cities?

I picked my new car up last night, it had all been nicely polished, however it was also chucking it down with rain!!!
The first drive was amazing, better than I remember, bearing in mind my test drive was in jan.
I will take some photos and post them soon.

Colour Choice

Thanks for all your comments, I chose the colour when I was at the garage picking up the test car I had over night which was red, unfortunately the one I borrowed was a 118d and a manual and after already having a 118d Coupe for a couple of years I was after the 120d and the Automatic. I did take that configuration out when I dropped the test car back but it was only a short test in that one (It was the burnt orange colour).
In the showroom at the time was a sport in mineral grey and it just struck me as you can see all the lines stand out.
In the past I have had lots of black cars but this choice and the star wheels where the grey is a great compliment to the car does look stunning, it also gives it some more rubber as the star wheels are 245 instead of the standard 225 at the back to push it along.
I will take some pics of the inside and post those soon. If anyone has and specific photos to check specs then let me know.

Congrats with your new car :-) Just took delivery a 116i on saturday with the same exterior characteristics. Really like those star rims. Had my first 8 hour drive yesterday and i must say im mighty impressed with it.

I still can't believe how different the drive is to my old 1 series coupe. I have only driven relatively short trips at the minute although I do have a long drive on Thursday which I'm sure will be more than a little fun. Did you get the star wheels as well?

Yes got the same rims as you. They look really nice with the mineral grey car paint. Pictures dont do them just though. Its the first new car i've bought and im really impressed. For me a car is usually a car and didnt think that the 1 series would that much differen than say a golf...but i must admit i was very wrong. It feels just as much at home on long as in curvy stretches. Hows the 120d engine?
