Anyone ordered a M135i yet?

First post here so hello all!

My 135i convertible got written off in an accident about 18 months ago and since I have been driving a MINI, but Iam missing the smoothness and grunt from that 6 cylinder engine and having seen the M135i am tempred to order one.

Has anyone on here taken the plunge yet?

I'm really considering it, just waiting on my dealer to reply to me how much it's going to cost! He's taking ages

Finally they have released the prices for the M135i here in Norway (including 114i, and all F21 models as well).
I am happy with my 120d though

Popped into my local dealer today for a casual inquiry and to pick up any information they had. Not that I am easy, but to cut a long story short my F21 M135i will be arriving at the end of September...

Here we go:
  • F21 M135i
  • Estoril blue (trip down memory lane as my E46 M3 was this colour)
  • Black dakota leather
  • Driver comfort pack
  • Visibility pack
  • Sun protection pack
  • Media pack - professional
  • Sport auto transmission
  • Adaptive M suspension
  • Folding mirrors
  • Electric seats
  • Heated seats
  • Brushed aluminium trim
  • DAB radio
  • HK hi fi
  • Mobile apps prep

Still a little undecided if I want to go Alpine white rather than Estoril, but that is about it.

Not missing much there. I assume the media pack pro includes Navi pro and the big monitor.

I would have traded the adaptive suspension with the standard M suspension, as this is quite comfortable. You won't miss a softer mode. For the saved money I'd buy the rear view camera.

Also I'd traded the electric adjustable seats in something else, like 18" wheels (if not standard in the UK). If there are two drivers in your household it might be sensible to keep it though.

I'd definitely pick the 20/40/20 rear seats and the storage pack, especially if this is your main car meant to cover all your daily needs.
Allthough I normally choose leather seats, I found the standard M interior very attractive, so I kept the Alcantara/cloth combination. Leather is more practical though.

Other than that you seem to have made smart choices

We get the 18 inch wheels and leather as standard in the UK. I did realise I had not included the storage pack, which I did mean to, so will change that.

I did go for the seats as my wife and I both drive the car and she is somewhat shorter than me.

Just thought I would dust down this thread as my new toy will be all mine at 2.00pm on Wednesday.

Will update with thoughts and pics once I have the car.
