Hi everyone. I have just joined the forum and thought I'd introduce myself. My name is James and I live in Staffordshire, England.
I've been browsing the forum for a while and thought it was about time I joined. There are some very interesting and useful threads here.

I currently drive the original Z4 (my first BMW) which I bought new in 2003. On order is my new 35is which I'm taking delivery of on 1st September (ordered back in June). I'll post some pics once it's finally here.

The wait is killing me.

It might sound dumb but what's an anti theft tint? A tint that cannot be stolen?

Wow, 1st 35is I've seen in white. Sweet! Why do you have to wait until Sept 1, couldn't you make due w/ whatever plate they gave you and switch later?

Thanks. I'm not sure anyone is really interested in this but here goes:

Here in the UK the first two numbers in the license plate are the year/period of registration. There is one in March and September each year. The March period is simply the year, so currently '10' with the Sept period being the year plus fifty, so due to be '60'. If I take delivery in the next two weeks it will be a '10' plate, therefore from September it will immediately 'look' 6 months old. It's not a major problem, but I'd prefer to have the Sept plates for the sake of waiting a couple of weeks.

Thanks. I thought the 296 wheels would be a bit more subtle on an otherwise very unsubtle car, especially being white. Really like your colour combo but I felt it was just too dark for the usually rainy England.

Hello, Gang. Another FNG here. Bob in Vancouver USA. Trading in my 2007 328i for a 2011 Z4 30i. Been reading a lot of posts, and thanks to the many of you who have asked questions, done great research, and shared info I now await custom luggage, and have a stubby antenna in hand ready to install. My Z is due at the dealership tomorrow, hopefully I'll strap it on my fanny by Wednesday. Pictures? - I may be technologically challenged there, but I'll try to figure it out. Visualize Orion Silver over Beige.

Excellent! Like everyone else who has placed an order, then waited, and waited for delivery, I've been going bananas waiting, tracking the ship, waiting.....! Kinda like being in a delivery room waiting for your first born to pop out. I'm sure I'm just ordinary typical.
