Mein Auto: 2014 328i X-Drive
About to join the F30 club, 2014 328ix on order!

I am looking forward to joining the ranks of not only the F30-ers, but the BMW crowd in general as I have just placed my order today for my 2014 328i X-Drive.

Here is my configuration:

328xi Sedan - Luxury Line
Melbourne Red (Sorry BJ, Mineral Grey was my 2nd choice)
Saddle Brown Interior (should be mandatory on all Lux Lines as good as it looks)
Anthracite Trim
ZDA - Driver Assistance
ZDH - Dynamic Handling
ZLP - Lighting
ZPP - Premium (automatically added with Lux Line)
ZTP - Tech
494 - Heated Front Seats
5AC - Auto High Beams
688 - HK Sound System

Not sure if it was mentioned before, but the order form states that oil changes are now every 10k miles or 1 year (as opposed to 15k miles on prior years? ). Maintenance is "free" anyway, so it just gives me an excuse to drive the car a bit more often!

Lease pricing hasn't been released to dealers yet, but I left with a production # and build week of the 2nd week of July, approximately July 7th per the CA.

The choice of the Red was more paying homage to my current vehicle, a 2002 Toyota Celica GT that I bought brand new over 10 years ago and has been a solidly reliable car mechanically, but is now showing signs of wear and tear, as well as the fact I am 10 years older, it was also a bright-ish red color, so this will most likely be my last red-colored car for a while . I figure 3 more years in a much more classy red car should do the trick.

My folks had a BMW while I was growing up (1984 E30), and I knew that my ultimate goal was to have a Bimmer for myself, so here I am. Thanks to all on this forum for your guidance, knowledge, and expertise! Looking forward to contributing more on the forum in the near and far future!

Are there any Melbourne Red 3-ers out there? Doesn't seem to be an overly popular color, but I looked at all of them on the lot, Mineral Grey was a close 2nd, followed by Mojave.
