The Australian "Spotted" thread

Because they're still so rare here, I thought I'd kick one of these threads off...mainly because there's an Estoril Blue M135i here at Hyams Beach, where we enjoying the Easter Break. NSW rego GSJxxx, if it's anyone on here.

Looks good, and makes me wish I'd hassled the dealer to have mine ready last Thursday!

Ha! Won't be doing Chapel Street much as I've moved to the other side of the river. Brunswick St perhaps.

I suspect the one I've seen is either a dealer's car, or a demonstrator that someone has bought. The Canberra dealer says mine is the first of their ordered cars to have arrived, and I presume that might be the case around Australia.

I've seen a few on the roads in Melbourne. This latest shipment is definitely not the first lot.

Seen two different M135i's in my area (Oatley/Peakhurst) and a 125i. All of a sudden these are becoming pretty popular

Given everything else the dealer has told me is suspect, I can only underscore the conditional statement I was given. Yes, I test drove a M135i in November, too...but perhaps no deliveries until now of customer configured cars.

Right you are. Oct 26 - I looked up the photo of the estoril car I posted on the tex.

Timbo, Matt was supposed to buy the car a friend of mine ordered then cancelled. It was all ready to go on Oct 26 so the first cars must have been around then. But I have never seen one on the road since then!

The black is available at Rushcutters Bay and a blue is still for sale at Brookvale.

For those who are waiting for their F20, the wait is definitely worthwhile
I have the 125i M Sport in EB and it is serious fun to drive.
The M135i should be awesome

Post pics when they arrive
