Yesterday mine said final details on the BMWUSA site. I also talked to my CA he said the car should be ready for delivery on Monday at the latest. Problem is I got crap to do this weekend and will not be able to go up and get it. So they will have to deliver it and I don't know when they will be able to do that.

I got my car yesterday and mine also came on the carmen on 10/2

It was raining so i didnt get a chance to take any images - but i will and post here soon.

have a few questions
1. How come there is no track forward or reverse button on the wheel? is there a special setting i need to change to have my volume button act in that manner?

2. When i test drove the car at the dealership they had a button for the handbrake, in my model i actually have a handbrake. Is it because the car i test drove was a different model (luxury,sport,..)

3. I have heated seats - shouldn't i have heated wheel? if so how do i turn that on?

don't know about the first one, however you most certainly should have this for volume, read the manual.

Handbrake is manual one, at least it is for the sportline. I don't remember being a button for the luxury line I drove. BJ can answer that one.

To have heated steering wheel you would have had to purchase the winter package. The 2013 models you could go winter package or front heated seats only.

1. The car now uses the right thumb wheel on the steering wheel to "scroll" through songs. If you have the Tech Package, the song list will appear on the HUD. If you don't have the HUD the song list will appear on the LCD between the gauges. Either way, you rotate the wheel one stop north and push it in to "skip".

2. You are mistaken. It's a manual handbrake.

3. Heated steering wheel is a separate option from heated seats alone. Winter package needs to be on your build.

Anything they can make a buck on. They aren't too cheap to replace. They add it in to tire/rim plan.

Well, it's Monday and you haven't posted anything so clearly you didn't get your cars or you'd be here telling us about them. Nice job.

Very cloudy. Looking like rain,a quick few shots for today. Hoping for less clouds to get better pics. On another note, I tried VERY hard to discern any steering wheel vibration at any point specifically the 40-60 MPH. None found so far. another observation, the leather is NOT very good. Hopefully it will soften a bit.

Very nice Katie congratulations. And thank you for the heads up on the vibration issue. that is exactly what I am going to do the minute I get the car, take it out on 495 and pray I don't have it either. As for the leather comment I have always thought BMW's leather is not very good, nothing like Mercedes or Lexus for example. Another reason I went with leatherette.

a few more shots, and an observation, while backing up in dark areas backup light is pretty shabby. Other than that I LOVE THIS CAR!
