      agree, black would be my choice too, out of the 8 cars i've owned 7 have been black. i lack imagination.

      Does it really matter what colour I choose? It will be gone in 6 months anyway. Kidding. I am planning to keep this for awhile. I am deadly serious too. I know what the car will be like due to the 135i and also having a M3 which a lot of this car's chassis is based on. So I know what I am facing here. I will get white if I can get the BMW Motorsport stickers! I hear that they are planning to offer that in the US.

      I think the top stripes are too much, but the bottom ones are and the white is head and shoulders above the other two.

      The black pins stripes they had on the 2002tii reincarnation looked good too although prolly a bit much for a daily driver:

      New owner is a bit more sensible than me. He put the factory hood back on, and sprayed the rest of the CF widebody kit in white. This is what it looks like now.

      Guys, what's your best guess at the delivery window for this car in Australia. Ie. what's the latest date by which you could order one of these?

      Mr MDT, I think it will be a matter of is there still any out there unspoken for, assuming the BMW BS machine hasn't sold us a lemon on the limited build number (100 cars for Aus). Assuming the build numbers are accurate you will have to ring around some of the non metro dealerships to find out if they actually have any unspoken for, then be prepared to pay RRP PLUS their possibly inflated delaer delivery charges.

      Wow, I missed that. If you put a deposit down now, when would it be delivered?

      Edit: no xenon lights (from Liam's spec sheet)? Pretty ordinary for a 100k car...

      They come standard (as with all 135i's) with Xenons and in the case of the 1M they also have Adaptive Xenons as standard (turn round corners with the steering), optional is the High Beam Assist (turns on and off the High Beams automatically) for $320:00.

      Matt, I really think you would be better off buying a nice, slow diesel -- maybe a Merc with speed limiter, what with the Vic Govt just announcing it's doubling VicPol's mobile speed camera fleet, and not changing its position regarding speed camera tolerances (3km/h for mobile, 2km/h for fixed)

      I actually think he should buy a speed camera, sit inside it and travel about using its magical powers of healing and community salvation.

      That or an unmarked Territory with "Your speed has been checked" A-frame signs on board. This has the added benefit of allowing sir to park wherever he sees fit.

      I've driven an S3 before. Didn't care for it.

      Damn, this is hard. There's not much chance a used M3 can be had for $100k, but I suspect this car, in truth, will just as much fun to drive.

      Can't help but agree, I remember reading that the 1M was an afterthought and had very limited budged / development time and. The next generation is being designed with an M model within the range. Not to take away from what will be a good car, but not my thing.

      Also, 110/120k will get you a near new M3.

      Limited budget yes, parts bin special yes, but it won't take away the fact that it will be a hot car to drive. I have had enough experience with a modded 135i to know! As for M3, for 110/120k you are looking at 2 year old ones min. But if you want to pay the 138.5k which is my trade in price, you can have my rather specced up one with 6,500km on it.

      Yeah, it will be a good car to drive, but it's an old generation that is just about to be replaced, it won't affect you since, well, you'll spend more time waiting for it than actually driving it.

      Bad timing with the M3, two month ago would've been on it straight away. I just picked up an LCI diesel coupe, a much better car than the convert 335 I had. I genuinly like driving it, more often than not in cars, more is not necessarily better.
