Sorry, I meant that the large screen and digital dash came together. From what has been said on here the timescale of our orders might have included the addition of the dash so I guess we will need to wait and see what each of us get!

Mines arrived at the dealer but not taking it until June when the Cupra goes back (still under 1000 miles so need to put that on it - and have work smile

Question - I know it comes with the Digi cockpit now but is the screen also larger?
I was wondering about this also as I've seen some on the Trader with digi cockpit, but the smaller media screens.

Arrived today on a low loader, 6 miles on the clock and eagle F1 tyres.. pleased about that.

Looks brilliant mate. The red looks gorgeous. I’m sure you’re very happy with your spec!!

My 128ti arrives on Tuesday. I can’t wait. I’ll make sure I put pictures on here (and videos if I can figure out how).

Also - Steve, I’m sure that I read all 128ti’s and M135i’s will have the upgraded screens and system as standard FOC. I think we all ordered at the right time in this thread to benefit from them for free without a price increase. Happy days!

Anyone heard about the HK issues? Just read on babybmw that some cars won’t be able to have HK and wireless as there is a shortage on chips for them.

Shouldn’t affect M135i builds (hopefully) but other models will be affected
Not had a notification myself. I specified the Pro Pack on my 128ti which includes the HK audio. Delivered on Tuesday so I’ll update!

I’ve driven both. 128ti is definitely more fun to drive. My brothers ordered a 128ti in misano blue and mine is an M135i in storm bay ( my fave 2 colours).

If i knew the 128ti was gonna have digital cockpit standard I probably would have gone with it initially.

I’ve been wondering this too. My order does say Live cockpit professional but not sure if the cockpit will be the full digital or the analog-y ones. Guys taking delivery next week of the 128 let us know what you get! Ps loving the video above!

Brilliant. Well that’s great to know. I’ve never been so impatient in my life!

Think I'm getting a little obsessed. I've resorted to watching youtube videos in foreign languages whilst I await delivery of my 128ti...

I came across this yesterday https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nN2VF42jUaM

It's a comparison by Carwow, Spain of the 128ti v Golf GTI v Hyundai i30N. Some of the testing looks great - just wish I knew what they were saying!!!

Anyway, one of the key bits I didn't need translation for was the timings around their track. The 128 has been behind others in a few other track tests but this time it was fitted with the Michelin PS4s. Here's the result:

128ti just arrived. I’ll have to upload some nicer pictures later because it’s a bit dirty from where it’s obviously been raining on the journey down from Glasgow.

11 miles on the clock.

And yes - the upgraded dash and system came with it free of charge. That’s the live cockpit.

Took it for a quick spin just now and it’s un unbelievable drive. Great choice.



More pictures to come!

Good news about the live cockpit and great to hear the positive initial driving impressions. 128 ti incoming on the 18th (Arnold Clark order end of Feb) in misano blue with tech pack and performance tyres. Can't wait!

Car looks great. Is the media screen the bigger one or smaller 8"?

It’s the bigger one! I don’t know if anybody here uses Apple CarPlay but it works brilliantly with the big screen. It doesn’t crop the screen down at all. It also connects wirelessly.

Having came from a VW Golf GTI, I can truly say that this is a different level of car.

Looking at the weather it looks like we’re in for rain for a while. So here’s a shot I took when it was delivered.

Glad I took the red bits off!

Hi all,

Can anyone let me know what the pricing was on the 128 & 135, please? Currently looking and just want to compare prices from David then vs now.

Thanks
