Mine has arrived!

Picked it up Wednesday June 5th. Here are some photos of the moment I first saw it.








And here in the driveway at home the next day. Of course it had to rain.





Pick your poison! Left 328i Touring M-Sport, right E46 M3.

Thank you!

The tint is 20% (light penetrating) all around.

I wish I had bought the M-Performance package on top of the M-Sport. It is only $1400 in Canada.

On the other hand... long term maintenance will be more expensive. ie: bigger brakes and bigger tires.

I do love it.

I hope everyone who will be placing an order soon will be as pleased as I am!

I just finished de-badging the hatch.

Can you say clean?

I does clean up the look very nicely. Is it just me or the new 3 series from the back, looks like a 5 series?

Looks great. Had mine debadged as well before nano coating. Looks better. I didn't like the xDrive logo.

Yes, it does look like a mini-5er!

Out of curiosity, how did BMW West Island treat you? And 2nd question - ON plate??? Where do you live?

How much did the coating run you? Does it cover against front-end stone chips or is it an overall paint protection layer?

The paint was cleaned and then I had a clear bra applied to the front bumper, lights, mirrors, full hood and front fenders, A pillars, leading edge of the roof and rear step.

The detailer used G Techniq EXO over the whole thing including the clear bra. I plan to do the wheels myself with Opticoat in the fall when I take them off for winter.

I paid for the clear bra package and then the general shop rate for the rest of the detailing.

I have only washed it once but can attest to the hydrophobic qualities of the EXO. Looks great.

My dealer has informed me that the M sport brakes will not be available on the wagon anytime soon. Bummer

BMW West Island were and are always good to me. If you are in the West Island area, I strongly recommend you go for a visit. Yves Brisson is very good and will take more than the time needed for you. Tell him I sent you!!

Indeed, Ontario plates. Lets say that I am about 45 minutes out of Point Claire/Dorval area on the Ontario side! I can PM you the exact location if you happen to live around here as well.

We my friend, you will have to come visit us in Canada for M-Performance brakes on a wagon.


Speaking of BMW West Island, they have a white M-Sport with all bells and whisles including the M-Performance package with M-brakes and 19" wheels. The only thing I am not too fan of is the red interior. Sticker price, $65,000 Canadian

That white F31 with coral red seats would look hot, especially with the Mperformance brakes and 403M's. Do you have any pics?

I was just about to take a picture when I was asked in the office to finalize documents. So no, I didn't have time!

It does look spectacular.

Just wondering if anyone has taken the initiative to order (or inquire with their dealer about ordering) a 2014 F31 diesel?
