M235i ordered (Aberdeen)

Hi everyone,

Delighted to say that I've just ordered an Estoril Blue M235i with the following:

-Sports auto
-Driver comfort pack
-Adaptive M Sport suspension
-Adaptive headlights (visibility package)
-Through loading
-Heated seats

Looking very much forward to a significant upgrade from my current wheels! The funny thing is, I only wanted a 220 or 228. But a couple of options here and there and we were talking M235i money. Plus end of quarter manufacturer and dealer discounts always help.

Any other owners local to Aberdeen? I'll be sure to share my experiences once the car arrives- currently expected Feb-March; I'm hoping I can attend the midnight event on 1st March with my shiny16 plate

Thanks,

Daniel

Nice one!

I was in John Clark at the weekend looking at PCP deals on a 428i. M235i is very tempting!

I'll be sure to post pics when it arrives. Apparently it'll be built on 08/02 with delivery about 4 weeks later.

Nice one.

Yeah, In was just looking at the 228 and suddenly had 6k of options to get a spec that I wanted. Really want a 428i, but that's proving slightly out of my budget!!

I'm waiting for mine to be delivered also (end of March).
Congrats !!! Can't wait to take it on some twisty roads. Wish I was on the same continent.... lol Looks like some awesome roads to drive there, especially in the Highlands. We have friends in Dumfries, maybe one day.
Enjoy the car !!

I think I saw a few M235i's being picked up on the midnight collection video.

Do you get yours?

Not yet, apparently it's at the port waiting to be brought overseas. Very frustrating!

Looking at sometime around 11-14th now.

good choice! that's what i've gone with also! Really liked mineral grey, but I have a grey E92 and just thought they would look too similar!

Well that's quite a quick delivery then! I've been bracing myself for a full 3 month wait.

did you go for the widescreen nav? I didn't and I'm worried I'm going to regret it!

Hi, yes really enjoying it. Economy about what I expected and I get a nice warm sensation every time I sit down, smell the leather and caress the gear selector (maybe that's just me!)

We went for standard BMW nav- no regrets so far, seems to be perfectly functional. The best bit is being able to set a preset button to your home address so you can find your way with one button.
