Tues. Sept 6th - 335d Delivery Day!!! (placeholder)
Here are some initial pix from the delivery day. I'll post more details in my "placeholder" replies below once we get stateside. And as an added bonus, I edited some of our footage into a little video from the delivery day. We had three cameras staged in the Premium Lounge watching the elevator to catch a glimpse of the elevator "moment". And as luck would have it, my bladder took priority and needed to find the "water closet" to relieve myself. Upon my return, I look down and see this shiny blue beast staring up at me. We had to sift through our video files to see it come up on the elevator…...........phew!!
The LeMans Blue is even better than I expected. And I can't get over how much I LOVE this Saddle Brown Leather. Notice the trim selection? The Piano Black Trim was an Individual Option ($1K addition)..and totally worth it. The Piano Black trim coupled with the Saddle Brown leather gives the interior a sensation of being incased in butterscotch and chocolate. Kudos to BMW's for giving your customers the ability to further individualize their cars! See this thread for details in how you can further enhance your order (all details inside):
FYI - My Msport was built with non-Msport rims. Long story, short: BMW ran out of the Style 193M rims....and built it with the ol' generic 3-series sport 5 spokers. Thanks to the 'Fest, I knew about this in advance and made an "arrangement" to get the 193's when my car is redelivered in Boston.
Also, my two boys built Lego Minifigs of themselves and their mother. These "figs" will be joining us for the trip and will be hidden within the 335d during marine transport. Quite the ride for a toy...if I do say so myself. Ha!!
