well worth the wait but I could not help but notice despite all the talk on the forum you did not get the chromed cup holder inserts but you have extended storage. I wish we knew once and for all how you get the factory fit chrome lined cup holders?

I think everyone gets them now but this one was built too early *

* this is educated guess based on what I've read about them!

Looks awesome! Congratulations! MS is such a deceptive colour. I saw one in the flesh and it shone gold in the sun. Very nice. Have fun.

P.S. If you're not already planning to, definitely get the chrome exhaust tip!

P.P.S. Sorry to hear you're selling it so soon, particularly after such a long wait. Demand will be high I'm sure

I think that's right Sfax; they would have to have been fitting them 6 or 7 weeks ago.
I would expect to start seeing them coming through fairly soon though.

Oooh I would destroy that. It wouldn't roll for a week! Smash its back doors in! I'm worried Mineral Silver will be too common... It's a great colour, so everyone will have it.

Added DAB Radio to the spec, forgot it in all the excitement and well worth it (if only when you tune into Radio 5Live to find its Rugby on and the footie is on 5LSX)

sfax, don't worry MkII arrives in August! Not sure I want to spend any more on this car.

WTF, ordered a second car after falling out with the dealership but decided to keep this one as we were desperate for a bigger car and my back was being slowly destroyed by my 120D M sport. Hopefully market conditions will mean I won't lose to much. Second X3 arrives August/Sept.

inamik75, I'll try and get some more done.

Ahh, I see. You could even turn a profit on it with the massive lead times. eBay auction, advertise on forums maybe....

That would be nice but I could do without the hastle. I'm hoping for a simple private sale or sold back to a dealership (who needs the stock!). I'd be happy to break even if I'm honest.
