Orion Silver with Cinnamon brown leather, black top for now (until I see what the beige looks like), 494 hot seats, ZPS premium sound, 6NF smartphone integration, 4U1 ceramic controls, and if I can get BMWUSA to let me order the HUD without the rest of the ZDA driver assistance(?) pkg I'll get that too. Love the HUD on our 550!

...and a 6-speed manual gearbox:D

This is a Euro Delivery car - my requested date is Sept 5th but the first ED's accepted by BMW will be 6/1/11. I'm not in too big a hurry, and the weather will be better in September for topless driving.

Sounds great! Let us know what they say about the HUD alone vs with the whole Driver Assist Package.

Also - what were they looking for on pricing vs invoice?

Pricing is to be XXX above ED invoice (once it's published - the ED pricing on these cars may not be established for a few more weeks). I expect the answer on the HUD to initially be "NO" as all special requests are with BMWNA. In other markets the HUD is to be a stand alone option so this is a marketing decision, not a technical requirement. It may be months after SOP before they'll agree to this, and with a Sept pick-up in Munich that should be okay.

Nice going Dick :thumbup:. I'm thinking of ordering one of these myself, give the M3 to my brother or something, the car just feels...dated compared to the new designs coming out...

Welcome folks, I ordered my 640 here in Europe some 3 weeks ago. Advantage is that we get it here much earlier (should be here beg of April) but we do not get manual gearbox... Cannot wait anymore

Congratulations on your 640! In the US the only available engine is the twin turbo V8. What color did you select? Odd that manual transmission is not for Europe :rolleyes:

I went for grey with all black interior. Manual is according to BMW no market for Europe. Apparently US customers ask heavily for it.

After slogging around on SoCal freeways behind a sea of beige Camry's and Odyssey min-vans, I concluded I just couldn't bring myself to drive a $100k BMW that was the same color as the clapped-out 'Yota's I was following. My car is in status #111, so today I had the dealer switch from Orion Silver to Alpine White with cinnamon interior.

Also, I've given up trying to get the HUD as a stand alone option, and still no word on when (or if) the M-Sport option will be available. BMW AG called BMWNA twice to confirm I really wanted a manual trans; apparently they aren't flying off the boat with a clutch pedal.
