Hello all.

Well I have recently been lucky enough to be offered a company car by my employers. Fortunately for me we don't really have any specific vehicles to choose from just a rough budget and the choice is ours. I am VAG group through an through having always been a fan of old VW's so initially I looked into getting Golf or an A3 although in the back of my mind a 1 series sounded like a good option. After visiting the VW and Audi showrooms I was lead to believe a wait of around 4-5 months would be most likely so I visited my local BMW dealer. I took a 120d sport for a drive and was instantly smitten and after seeing an Estoril Blue M Sport Press vehicle in the flesh I decided that was what I wanted so here's the spec:

120d M Sport in Estoril Blue
Anthracite Hexagon Cloth/Alcantara Upholstery
Driver Comfort Package
Interior Comfort Package
BMW Professional Multimedia
Ext Mirrors - folding, auto dimming
Harmon Kardon Hi-Fi

And that's it. Delivery is expected for September 15th and I CANNOT Wait.

I was very sad to say goodbye to my old car as it meant a hell of a lot to me and I had put in lots of time and effort into looking after it and enjoying it but i feel very great full to be offered a brand new BMW in M Sport spec no less. Here's a pic of the old girl.

Welcome to the club

I to fell in love after taking 120d out for a test drive and fingers crossed, my new car should also be arriving mid September!

Enjoy the painful wait!!
Soon to the proud owner of my first ever BMW!!

Congrads on the choice, you will love it for sure, just the long'ish' wait now

You may want take this time to read some of the other threads abouts options and extras before the time runs out and you cannot add to your order.

If you can afford it I would add Xenons and the black screen display on the instrument cluster as well.

Thanks AusF20.

I have had a little look around and I am slightly gutted that i didn't opt for the Xenons but I don't really think the budget would stretch that far and I already feel cheeky opting for the HK system in my company car! The spec is already much more than I could ask for so i'm still over the moon.

Slightly worried about this delay in deliveries now though!
