F22 / F23 2 Series (2014 - Current)
The 2 Series coupe is the replacement for the E82/E88 1 series coupe. Production starts in November 2013 on the 228i (N20) and M235i (N55) coupes. Look for them in dealerships in February 2014. The convertible F23 2 series will follow in the fall of 2014.

Here's you carrier approaching Southampton. To track, go to marinetraffic.com, click on search and enter your vessel's name. To get rid of of the other types of ships, do a vessel filter and only select cargo vessels. Once the carrier is out in the Pacific ocean, you won't see it until it gets close to the US coastline. Have fun tracking...

Thanks for the tracking info. I now have the link setup to track the ships path. Will let you know when the car finally arrives. I have been documenting this entire purchase to delivery process for future reference. At least my wife was able to enjoy her BMW coffee mug for Christmas.

You'll have to post a picture of your car when you pick it up!

Yes, I have been calculating the ship speed and distance to cover. I knew they would have to double the speed or arrive later.

After 84 days the car is finally in my garage. Now I just have to "study" the user manual and use the BMW Genius app to learn how to use the car. I feel like I'm back in school getting ready for an exam. It will probably take me years to learn most of the functions. I'm sure just as I feel like I know everything, it will be time to buy a new a new car or I will be so old I can't drive.
The weather sucks here right now so I will post pictures when I can put her in the sun.

Hooray. It drives great but I am still underwhelmed with the technology, both the features and ease of use.

We've been waiting for the good news. Did I understand this right? the car is for your wife? Like indufan says the tech is in need of a remedial lesson. However the driving fun will erase the quirks as soon as you start it up. My wife has yet to drive mine but she loves the passenger seat. Put the top down and it is good to go.

Yes, this is my wife's car. She had a 2011 Honda Accord sport coupe with a v6 and 273hp. She loved the power and acceleration. This car will definitely take time for her to adjust. It is amazing that the 4 cylinder turbo in the 230i has almost as much torque as her Honda. I think she will really love how it handles. Much better than the Honda.

Ok, new guy question. How do I post pictures?

Congrats on the new car (finally!) The pick up and handling always makes me smile!

To post pictures, click on the paperclip attachment icon from the post reply menu. Select the photos you want to post - I use medium format so it's the right size for the page, then choose file to attach and upload. Press submit reply to post your pictures.

Here's mine when we picked it up from the dealer.

How is the car now that you have had it around for awhile. I looks like the weather there, that I see on the weather channel, is not very good but you do have awd right? Do you have all season run flats or summer tires?

Hey Genod,
The car is great. Still learning everything about the car when my wife lets me drive. The car does have awd and all season run flats but since I drive a 4wd Tacoma it stays in the garage during bad weather. Since we are both retired we can drive what we want when we want to. The joys of not having to go to work everyday.
