2011 jet black f10

Thanks for all the help I recieved here on this forum. Picked up an 2011 535xi M sport. Well had it delivered to my house.

Just got it, I'll post some pics, but for now there is one in the sig. Haven't drove it much yet. Great way to end a tuff month. Daugher in Hospital most of Sept but that is how I found this forum. I'll have three years to drive it. But great to have it in front of my house.

Park it on the street, so what's the over under on how long til someone hits my bumper and makes a mark. I say 2 weeks.


Hope to keep up with all the info here. Definiately a bunch of buttons to learn, even coming from a 2008 528xi.

First 5 miles, first impression, this car seams bigger.

Nice car. Congrats. I love the Jet Black M-Sport - my neighbour has one too.

Get those orange reflectors replaced with jet black ones.

Welcome to the club - looks great! I must be one of the only people here who don't mind the orange reflectors. Of course I'm not really the mod type, especially when it comes to cosmetics.

Beautiful car. I sometimes wonder if getting your first ding isn't a blessing. Helps you get past the "everything has to be asolutely 110% perfect" syndrome that can drive you nuts.

Hope your daughter is doing better and that she returns home and is up and about before you know it. Take her for a spin in the new familiy member. That's sure to brighten up her spirits.

Nothing like shining up a Jet Black car! My car has almost 5000 miles and not a ding or scratch on it (knock on wood). Hope you have the same luck.

Make sure to get touch paint handy.

At 2000 miles, I already got my first paint chip.

GRATZ! I have yet to see a F10 with M-Sport that I didn't like. I'm still waiting on someone to test me with Tasman Green.

My daughter will be get better but it will be a long haul. She is five and loves the fact that there are "two" turbos!

The dealer, Tully in NH could not have been more accomadating given my situation. Did almost everything over email from Mass General. And they gave me a rock bottom price right off the bat.

Hope I get to drive it today.

GREAT COLOR CHOICE~!...That may be a biased opinion..but whatever. CONGRATS on your new car, and I hope everything works out for your daughter, you and your family.

Oh and get that thing off the street!

new front and back bumper is about $800 at lease turn in... Parking spot (not even close to my house) is $200-300 a month. It bugs me but not enough to not get a nice car.

Here's another "congratz" to you, Notaskitrail, and warmest wishes to your daughter and your family. Your SA/dealership also deserves kudos for being so thoughtful and accommodating. I hope everyone enjoys your new F10 (gorgeous!) as soon as possible and, most importantly, in the best of health.

Nice car enjoy it in good health just an fyi I don't know where I saw it but I'm sure you can buy bumper guards to put on your car when you park it, maybe that might help off set some of the $800 at Lease turn in next time around.

You'll be waiting a long time - you can't order an M-Sport in Tasman Green

Like space gray, the black F10s look especially great with the '19 wheels and M Sport.
Best regards for your family, and enjoy the beautiful ride.

Congrats on the new ride, and prayers for the family. My first advice is to buy a car duster... great for quick pollen and road dust cleanups. Love the jet black!
