Alright because it seems like 3-4 people on this forum alone have secured 235s with him.

Sounds like it's going to be a fun trip (x2 for both ED and PCD).

I assumed the one a month was for the M235 though and not the 228 but I could be wrong.

Very excited for the ED and PCD trips The main reason I chose PCD though is that it's closer to Dallas than California for driving it back home lol

congrats! Our cars look very similar, in color!

I'm still trying to decide on the options .

I am yet to see terra brown! I don't want it to be orange. I would have rather it been a darker brown . I might get oyster, but who knows since I only really like oyster/black.

I am also not sure which one goes better with the performance interior. I wish the performance interior was all carbon fiber like the current e82. Never been a fan of aluminum interior, and I prefer the darker wood options...

Also, instead of getting tech options, I might be more performance oriented.

I kinda want Recaro's in the car (such like the CLA45 AMG ones), but not sure if BMW will release in the future, or how much the new M3/M4 seats will cost. Currently solutions require lots of $$$$. If I go this route, I may just get leatherette to save some cost, and invest in seats later. I went to the dealership, and could not tell the difference between leather and leatherette, but the cars were brand new as well.

Estroil Blue for sure : ).
Manual
Tint
LSD for sure, assuming it is < 3k.
BMW Performance interior (probably from Dan@UnitedBMW)
Aftermarket Rims (TBD)
Carbon fiber front, side, rear, and mirrors (aftermarket)
Exhaust (not sure yet, from M135i I like the militek)

I may get the tech package. Not keen on spending 2k for navigation, since my commute is 15 miles a day. However, the bigger screen and the black panel LCD instrument cluster are very tempting : (

edit: just noticed you are in dallas/ft worth area! I got mine from classic bmw

If the Terra Brown looks like the UK Configurator shows it to be I'll be very happy. Doesn't look to have that orange tint that my E92 had. I love the oyster too but I don't want to keep that clean!

I have seen the Fineline wood in person though and really loved it. Was really bummed when that wasn't an option with M Sport on the F30.

I hear ya on the tech package though... if it was only a Nav I'd agree but with all it comes with I think it's worth it. I will really miss the HUD though, that's the one thing I'll be giving up from my F30

Oh? Were they willing to negotiate any? I have given up on the DFW dealerships. They have always been $200-300 more per month than others.

not really. I will probably settle for free tint or something, or get a better deal on my trade in. Kinda waiting for the last moment before I sign papers before I pull a fast one on them : ).

Get it out of state and have it delivered to the Performance Center, not too bad of a drive from there to Dallas. And you get a day of track driving fun

I was just wondering because I went in to do a ed order today and the head of new car sales told me that you may still need an allocation from the dealer to do ed when I said people on the forums were placing orders he asked if they had gotten production # and such

David said ED production numbers won't be available until March. And the first available ED would be March 17.

There is still a Euro Delivery discount that will apply. So not US MSRP.

I'm also in the dallas Fort Worth area and was thinking about ordering a 2 series. Are any of the local dealerships worth dealing with?

Not that I have found. I ended up buying my 335i from a dealer in New Jersey because they were over $200/mo cheaper than the best price I could get from the local dealerships.

If you do performance center delivery it doesn't really matter where you buy it from either. Just drive it back to Dallas from there on a weekend.
