Looks lovely... were you not tempted by the new wheel styles?

Is the Nav (idrive) the newest version like the 5 series?

Looks great ... when did you order it? any interior photos?

How does it compare to your 35i ?

PS. In the excitement you missed to update your profile and what you drive still reads your previous ride?

I love that color. Very cool. I think i want to make a trade now. The only thing i see wrogn is that the dealer placed their advertisement on it. If it were mine that would be gone. My thinking there is if they want me to advertise for them then it either needs to loook really good or to pay me for the ad as i drve around.

We want more pics.

Interior Photos tomorrow, steering seems tighter, but it could be me! - Dealer license plate brackets will go once I get he registration - Plain Stainless Steel frames will be there - Last car was registered in Florida - this one will be registered in NJ - two plates- but have sold my home in Florida - and dont want to take chances as some do with one plate on the rear !

Navigation is updated version - dont know what the 5 Series has - but its better and more features than the 2009 Z-4 I had. Quite a difference in acceleration with the Auto 7 speed - am tempted to push the pedal more firmly now !

I liked the Old 293 rims (with Michilen Pilots this time) - over the stock 515 rims - think they have found a home already- I bought the Pump and sealer kit from BMW so if I do get a flat - i can get it to the nearest service station or tire store !

I ordered it on March 1st- and it was built quite quickly- and on a ship sooner than I had expected - I thought i would get it in the Middle of May - but got it a month earlier ! The doors close tighter on this car than the 2009 - a soft close pressure, but its firmly closed - think the fit and finish is a lot better too -

Thanks to all for your comments - much appreciated !

now if I can figure out how to change the Avitar - !

BTW - several people have shown interest in the 515 rims and runflats - they should have a home by Saturday PM.

Wow, that's pretty good! I had to wait about 2 months for mine last year -- I ordered it early March.

Anyway, great color! Can't wait for the interior pics!

I hope you reconsider and do not put the front plate on. I've driven without one for many years and never been stopped and the car looks so much better.

I did not want to put it on - dealer gave me the option - but decided not to take a chance - too conservative here -

Fantastic! Would love to see this color in flesh. Guess I have to hit up the dealership soon.

Pics of the new angel eyes!

Interior Shots: and Angel eyes - note the white strip above the Angel Eyes, however the turn signal in the front are still bulbs, unlike the rear LED's. Seat has a pull out front section that adjusts to several positions for support ! Orange stiching all over the place inside the vehicle. Faux Suede on the inside door panels -(orange) extended black leather, Also Faux Suede in the centers of the seats. Black plastic around the shift lever, and door handles - wood option was not available.

Could you take a photo of the main screen, or video of you cycling through menus and navigation screens as this seems to be the main area of improvement. The UK forum users are split as to whether the facelift has the 5/7 series iDrive or whether its still the 2012 version....

Thanks.

This is the new interface, quickly notable by the red 'aura' in the selection bar...



This is the old interface, quickly notable by just a red 'band' around the selection...

I forget where, but I read something (seemingly official) that indicated that the new iDrive wouldn't be in the 2014, and worse yet in any Z4's until the full model refresh a couple years out.
