Cool New Member! from Sydney, Australia

Hi Guys,

a friend of mine from University referred me to this Forum. My name's Nathan, i'm 20 and i live in Sydney, Australia. Last week i ordered a brand new Alpine White 116i F20 5 door. It's Mnaual, and has Sports Seats, Sports Leather Steering Wheel, Auto headlamps and rain sensor, Instrumant cluster with extended functionallity and sliding centre arm rest. I get delivery of the car in December sometime. I've previously had an E36 Compact which I loved, and the last car i had was an Alfa Romeo MiTo, which has been a fantastic car! its kept me very happy, but i needed to upgrade to something bigger than the MiTo so, here I am! Until the car arrives I'm carting around in a Candy White Mk 5 Golf GTi DSG.

Anyway, thanks guys! can't wait to show you the car when I get it!

Welcome Mete001

You will be happy with the 1er

As your 1er is not being delivered until December, you have time to look at all the options and performance enhancments that you may want to add to it before its build is locked in.

Things like M Sport brakes, Xenon lights, HK sound system, folding mirrors etc

I suggest you read as many of the threads here as you can, so that you can fully understand your new ride and all the options and advice other members have offered on these items, upgrades etc.

Thank you! Actually, I'm thinking of putting some OZ Ultraleggeras on it when I get it, 18" do you know anyone who can help me out?

Welcome..

Hi Mete001,

Good luck with the F20 order, I think you will love it.

Sorry, can't help out with the wheels. I did ask around about the RF tyres and the larger sizes and was warned about increase in tyre noise and increasing costs with every inch. But, heck, I'll live with it. They look cool.

I Hope everything goes as smoothly as it did for me when I ordered (mid June). I made a July build so due mid to end of October. The wait is a bit painful.

Not too many on the road yet (even in the posh areas around town) but starting to see them appear amongst the previous models (mirror indicators and longer lower grilles can be picked). Saw a white one (my second choice) last Thursday parked at gym. Very nice!!

Hoping to do a bit more cruizing (rather than commuting) now I am about to retire the Falcon wagon....

I'll flash my hi beam if I pass you (if the car lets me...) if, and when, I am up from Adelaide..... Mine is (it has been built and is currently on a cruise..) an orange 118d M sport (5 door manual), apparently there is not too many of those about.

Cheers,
