Hi guys/ and girls of course!

I am trying to source more info on a car:

BMW M135i is apparently out or about to be.. I am after a 5 door car with xdrive (4x4)
can anyone give me more info? How to get prices and order/ register on waiting list etc?

http://www.autoblog.com/2012/03/07/bmw-m135i-conce...

I went into Stratstone today and they had no idea what I was on about.

You want a 4WD car though? So "bad" news.

Hi Teknoplug,

Ideally yes would like 4WD for twisty snowy lanes.. So I may be disappointed if no x drive in UK..cannot really think what else to get. Not a mini countryman.

I have a Land Rover for really bad weather but need a run about that can cope when it snows for the trouble and strife.

Shoot.

May have to think hard and fast as to whether a 2wd will cope.. It looks a cracking car and I have never bought a BMW before so was looking forward to the experience.

Yep, £29,995 list. Very very good value.

Few brilliant write ups in the usual mags and online @ EVO/Autocar etc.

Sounds like a belting steer - rear drive, amazing engine, epic sound (check the crackle and pop exhaust sound on youtube) and as quick as a 1M for under £30k.

Only the look of the front end puts me off, subjective though.

£29995 for 3 door, £30,575 for 5 door, only RWD in the UK i'm afraid.

Cars arriving over next few weeks for first customer sold orders ( bit of a delay due to alloy wheel change )

Customer orders ordered in past 4 weeks arriving mid October.

It's going to be an awesome car !

Hi Greg,
Thanks for that. Do you work for BMW? I note you are an M Power manager.

Any reason why when I went into my BMW garage they could not order me a car?
To be honest they were clueless... with a capital C.

Update!
Went to Coopers in York, very helpful.

Cars available for delivery mid November.
Looking at a white car..comments?
Best option to purchase..comments?

The only addition I would spec is rear parking sensor (for the wife not me!) and sunroof.

Also saw that its only a group 22 to insure which is the icing on the cake, well done BMW.

Whether its in the right or wrong section lets not be too worried.

For others who may be interested it really is good value as a poster mentioned. VERY good value.

Just sourced a car now with various options from BMW dealer. Book price is £32,085. Dealer has come back all in for £28,000. Delivery First week in November. White, red leather, sunroof, tints and Alpina stripe. 5 year servcice.

I have two other dealers sharpening their pencils now.

So are you just phoning various dealers asking if there are any cancellations? For £28000 thats really a good deal if the options are right. Is it for a 3 or 5 door?

Each to one's own and all that, but why would you want to put Alpina stripes onto a car that isn't actually an Alpina?

Hi Panthro,
Thats not a cancellation and is for a new spec car.

As for the Alpina stripes..Mmm I saw the press car and thought it looked great so as they peel on and off not too much of a risk..
