Yes, the 18'inch wheels will be given to you in boxes as they will be sent to the Dealership when you take delivery of your car. Any updated news regarding your delivery date of your car as I have been informed my vehicle is still under compliance..... It's been there for over weeks.....

Not sure if my earlier message was sent. In short "YES" you receive the 18'inch wheels which are sent to your dealership when you take delivery of your car. Any need on delivery dates for your car?

My car is still undergoing compliance as it's been there for weeks approaching a month now.

Thanks for that.

It does look like Prix car will be doing the “Performance” bits to the vehicle which seems unusual but that’s the information we have.
Currently sitting over East at Prix car so once it moves from there I’ll let you know.
Transport is looking like getting the M140i to us Second week of May so delivery shortly thereafter.
Speak once it gets on the Train over here.

Hi you can track your vehicle if you have the last 7 numbers of your VIN#. Go to Prixcar website and select the Track and Trace option then enter the last 7 numbers under "Vehicle ID" then selected search now and click on your VIN again to obtain the specifics on delivery dates as it's shows where delivery status is with Prixcar.

Hopefully not too long now guys! I have been advised that mine has finished all it's Performance Edition mods and is now just finishing the normal new car build stuff such as detailing and compliancing.

Fingers crossed some time this week - I'm in Melbourne and car is at Prixcar Altona.

And I was also advised that wheels should be given to me at delivery time.

Still needs to get stuck on a train to come over West.

Mine just got booked for transport from Prixcar to the dealer which means it's fully completed its build!

Says between today and Wednesday, then a day for dealer detailing after transport. That means this week barring all catastrophes!

Awesome guys, have you got yours yet? I picked mine up this morning and love it! Sounds great and with the wheels in blue it looks great. I will be picking up the 18" wheels seperately probably next week, it's now booked for window tint and a paint protection film next week too

Hi, yes took delivery of my car last Friday in Sydney My dealership secured it from a Brisbane dealership while the car was intransit... Waited 8 wks from discharge off the ship to collection of the car.
Love it as the performance exhaust sounds much better than the stock exhaust.
I'm sure it won't be much longer before you collect your PE. Just check Prixcar tracker using your VIN then chase the Dealership to prioritize the pre-delivery and programming.

How's everyone going with their cars??

So much fun!

One thing I had to change was the handbrake cover - it was doing my head in having everything else carbon fibre except that! Looks like it belongs now

Any cool features people have discovered?

I find that the exhaust in comfort mode is very tame. Sports+ it gets the crackle on deceleration. The same effect can be had by tapping the DSC button (not holding down), which puts it into 'Traction' mode - I'm yet to work out the exact effects of this traction mode are except exhaust heaven.

Other things I have found is Alcantara is impossible to keep looking pristine, even the littlest specks of dirt and dust show up!!!

Traction mode pretty much disables traction control, so you are allowed wheelspin. Stability control is still active, but will allow slightly more sliding than otherwise. It is useful in snowy conditions where you want your tyres to dig into the surface to gain more traction.

I'm not getting mine until July now
It doesn't get into Perth until the 12th and I'm overseas from the 14th.

Pretty disappointed.
If I knew it was going to take so long I would have ordered a standard car exactly how I wanted (that would have been ready in August) rather than grabbing one that was already on the boat.

I'm wondering if I would have been happier with this - M140 Performance in manual and LSD instead of getting two cars.

But then the missus would never have gone for the manual.
