I think so...also...there is a lot of speculation on what the July tech change will be.

All I know at this point is that my F31 is a 2014 and, like a poster above, is in production and scheduled to get here around the end of May. Perhaps it's possible that the nav system will not be updated until later in the year and my car is sans nav.

Apparently we're in the same production week. With luck we should be looking for mid to late May to consummate our deals.

Mein Auto: 316d
Mine was delivered last Friday!

316d Touring in Imperialblau with Move Anthrazit interior - no lines

Extra's:

Xenon + headlight washers (obligatory by law)
Nav pro NBT + 6NH
Tinted windows in the back
Cruise control
Black roofbox bars (don't now how it's called in English :-) )
Adaptive steering
390 alloy (alloy wheels do not come as a standard here)
PDC in the back
Moveable central armrest
Automatically dimming review mirror
Rain & light sensor


After 800km, besides the great ride, there are still some drawbacks:

- NBT maps are edition 2013 but terribly outdated. Roads that have been redesigned back in 2009 are still not updated
- Factory has mounted wrong rear window. All windows are tinted, except the one in the back. Has passed all quality checks untill I noticed it over the weekend
- No storage on the left hand side of the steering wheel
- When not taking the very expensive 6NK option, you won't get all the nice options like integrated email, sms, calendar etc.

Confirmed my order!

less stuff than most of you guys though

328xi touring
EBII
Black leather interior
Alu hex + blue finish
Msport
Premium pkg


Really wanted the executive package but due to the change in tax rules, I would have to pay luxury tax on the car if I added it in.

Any ideas why BMW would be building F31s with M Sport and M suspension, no other options, and with protected individual data (like test vehicles have)? There are at least four in the database, three EBIIs and a red, made over the past week, sprinkled among the cars clearly configured to be interesting to actual customers.

My CA ordered an M-Sport F31 to be the dealer lot/demo car. Pretty much configured the way many people here would want it.

Here's my point of confusion: The F31 will be the 328iX only in the US, and the X have never had the sport suspension. Has that changed? On BMWUSA.com I see the description for the Sportline has "Sport suspension"... But I didn't see that designation on the M-Sport.

I just picked up my F31. I'm really happy to finally have a euro wagon. On a side note it looks like 2014 Msports will have fog lights.

Hey!... you seem to be the first in NA on this forum to pick up a F31. Nice going. Hopefully I'll be following your lead by the middle of May.

Congratulations! Is it a '13 or a '14? I have been under the impression that the new models don't start building until July. When I picked up my ED in late July of '07, it was still an '07, not an '08. Yet some posters seem to be saying that they are already receiving '14.

BMW changed its mind. All F31 for the US market will be sold as 2014.
