+1. That's a nice build.

Not very many people get the Venetian Beige but I absolutely love mine. I added black floor mats and the ambiance feels awesome with the black ceiling.

Welcome to the Alpine White club. A very sporty build with M-Sport and DHP. Congratulation!

I have ceramic control in my F10, but sadly cannot tell the difference between that and non-ceramic ones I had in my E90.

Released to the carrier...its basically sitting at the docks awaiting a cargo vessel. It takes about 12-14 days on the ocean, a few days at the VDC, then a few more days to deliver to dealer and the dealer to prep. I'd say you are at the 3 week mark plus however long it sites a the German dock awaiting a shipping vessel. Once it's loaded, you can determine what ship it's on and track the ship..but right now you will be in the dark until then. It's usually on a cargo ship within a week once it's released to the carrier. So optimistically in less then 4 weeks you should have your car.

Collected the F10 yesterday..only drove it 15mls so far, impress with the interior of the car..haven't really got a chance to check the features.
What I notice is that the driver side Mirror doesn't tilt when in reverse or put back to park, only the passenger side. I try moving the switch in either position..any help would be appreciated to resolve this.
Here's a few pics..

Well this is stupid, if only the passenger side tilt, on my MAXIMA which is half the price of this car, both Mirrors tilt, which is how it should be.

I don't know why they don't also tilt the driver's side mirror but it is unlikely to be related to cost cutting. There are so many other polishes to the car and controls that were splurges that I just have a hard time believing they would cost cut a mirror. There has to be some other reason.

Both mirrors tilt, the mirror adjustment selector dupes as a selector to select which mirror you want to auto-tilt.

Luke..Well mine doesn't tilt, when the car is place in reverse/park/drive, only passenger side. The driver side only tilts manually if you use the directional arrows.

There is a selector switch to adjust your mirrors (right for driver / left for passenger) Switch that to the "passenger side" mirror, then place the car in reverse. The driver side will tilt and the the passenger side will remain stationary. Switch it the other way and its visa versa.

Edit: Meant to say left for driver and right for passenger. Its near the directional arrows. Set it to the right for driver side auto tilt or set it to the left for passenger auto tilt.
