Just returned from Munich where we took delivery of a 325xit with steel blue and natural brown combination. I owe a big thanks to contributors like "Cowboy Ben Alman" and "Nat Brown" for their inspiration. Also, a thanks to Jon Shafer for showing us that the steel blue/natural brown combination COULD be ordered (like on Khuzud's sedan).

The car is terrific. The navigation system saved my marriage, I think.

I was a little nervous about ordering a wagon with natural brown interior having never seen one. The black carpet in the back, however, works really well with the whole scheme. I'm really pleased.

I'm going to try to post photos now. Be patient, this is new...

Pic 4 of 5

Just so you can see natural brown and steel blue. Notice that while Michael, the BMW rep is patiently explaining all the features, I'm trying to pretend like I didn't already read the owner's manual about 15 times before my trip.

Pic 5, from the rear

Natural brown gives you black carpet in the load bay.

It's funny that your plate says: M-8279Z. My bro just picked up his car two weeks ago and his plate says: M-8272Z. I wonder if you guys were there the same day? :confused:
Maybe we were there at the same time!



Hey, thanks to all who have commented on the car. I really mean it when I said in my first message that I relied on your advice and recommendations.

European Delivery

For those of you planning on taking advantage of the European Delivery savings, I'd have to endorse staying at the Hotel Uhland. I saw the hotel on another Bimmerfest member's site on european delivery - http://mywebpages.comcast.net/derprofi/bmw/

The place is simple yet very adequate. I think it cost about 75 euro's. There's a very good free breakfast (with English-language newspapers) and it's very short walk from the old city center, the subway (which takes you to the BMW delivery center for about a euro) and a few blocks from the main train station called Munich HBF.

The manager is a third generation owner. She herself has a brand new 3er compact. I saw some other tourist delivery license plates (with the red date on the tag), so I figured we weren't the only ones who read the posts.

Off-street parking by the hotel is free. (See pic)

Muchos gracias, Senior Snort

Maybe BMW-NA will see it and allow natural brown interior to be an available combination stateside.

Now, if only they'd let us order the M-tech sport package, too...;)
