Anyone one in Australia got a recent delivery M135i?

My car is late April build and while I'm still waiting for the car ( it's in country but in customs or something ) I had to sign an additional form to activate this new SOS feature.
Anyone else in AU got a post week 10 build with this? And if so did you get the new style steering wheel also ?

Hi Robo, I ordered my 125i M-sport back at the end of March and it was part of the mid-late April build in Germany, and I've only taken possession of it a week ago. However I didn't have to sign any other paperwork for this SOS you're referring to.

As for the M steering wheel I think I did get the new one (where the '///M' logo is at the very bottom of the wheel). I have to say that this wheel feels fantastic in your hands and love the design (that's my opinion).

Hopefully you've taken delivery of your 135i by now.

Cheers

Thanks LordGee, we went away on a trip just as the dealer got the car so will get it when we return.

The new wheel looks like this.

I don't understand why BMW needs three buttons and a lever to operate the cruise control. I think the lever and one button would be enough.

When the cruise is not active:
Flick the lever to activate it at current speed.
Press the button to resume previous speed.

When the cruise is active:
Adjust speed with lever.
Press the button to deactivate the cruise control.

What more do we need?
With all those extra buttons, I sometimes press the wrong one.

Hahaha!!! That sounds like me when I was waiting on my 125i !!! . And I don't know how many youtube videos I've watched again and again and again because of the excitement!

Enjoy your delivery!
