Depends how much patience you have. You will have to wait 2-3 months for the car to arrive at the dealer. But at least it will be exactly as you want it and you won't have to settle.

When I finally get my 228i coupe, I will consider the Dinan Stage 1.
I notice my dealer is a Dinan participant.

Of course, in about a month, I plan to correct this deplorable situation, assuming my poor 228i coupe ever gets put on a ship! :mad:

In Tampa, I haven't seen any 2 Series vehicles on the road. Heck, it's rare to even find one on a BMW dealer's lot over here!

Yeah. I'm glad the way it worked out for me getting the 228 coupe.

0-60 in 5-5.5 seconds is plenty fast enough for me.

The wife's E90 with AT (horrible AT, by the way) is 6.7 seconds.

And that is the exact same reason I ordered a 228i coupe. I couldn't wait for the Performance Package GTI with the adjustable shocks. So in essence I got a 228i with a "performance package" and...

Good to hear. I ordered my 228i with Sport line. Was worried about the non-M steering wheel. In pics, it looks plenty thick enough.

I ordered a 228i coupe last month and got a very nice deal. A much better price than Edmunds, Kelley and True Car say I should have paid. Got 0.9% financing too.

Deals are out there to be had....
