I actually would have rather had the Carbon Leather option from the E9X ///M3. I'm not a fan of obnoxious amounts of carbon fiber (...although I did have the CF center console and doors from the E46 CSL in my '05 ZCP, but the 1x1 plain weave pattern is far less garish than 2x2 twill). I like my CF trim in the F82, but I would've taken a more subtle approach given the option.

Totally agree - i love the carbon leather in my E93, especially in a 'vert ... I'm worried the non-leather trim is going to be reflective and blinding when the sun hits it.

Fortunately the clear coat doesn't cause issues with the sun, and I often 'forget' that the CF is even there (..until I'm cleaning the car, and remain focused so that I don't scratch it up). I do wish the weave matched the roof. BMW's CF parts are top notch, and I think I would've loved the 1x1.

That came fast! I feel like just yesterday it was a month or two away. What time do you fly out?

Mein Auto: F83 M4 CvT
Anyone else patiently waiting for their car?

My F83 M4 CvT is sitting in Oxnard, arrived last week but still hasn't been sent out. Rumor has it they are fixing the wiring harness before they get sent to dealers.

Anyone taken delivery yet?

I would love to see pics and hear first thoughts.

I think they are just backed up. Mine took an extra 3 days to be released to a carrier.

If you have your VIN, enter the last 8 digits. It'll pull up your car, and you'll be able to receive email updates about your dealerships deliveries. You'll know when your car gets there (..probably before your CA).

It won't show until the car has been released to a carrier (..on a truck). Check it a few times a day.
