New Glacier silver 40d

Quick picture from the dealers yesterday, hoping to collect today but they are having an issue taxing the car.

They definitely will do if they're trying to put a 59 plate on it

There seems to be some problem with the BMW system in Germany. Very frustrating having the car sitting and not being able to collect it.

Very clean lines - looks great, D69GMB! It might be the angle, but is this one of those rare birds without a panoramic moon roof? If so, would it be possible to get another view from a bit higher angle to see how refined it looks without the roof? I'm hoping they'll allow us to order the X3M without it for weight savings, and I haven't seen many G01s without it.

Thanks, and congratulations again!

Why? You can put on any plate older than the car!

Yes no pano roof. Not a great fan of them due to ratttles etc. Unfortunately I don't have any more pictures at the moment but will post more whe I take delivery of the car.

They're having problems taxing the car.

However, believe me, when you hit the loud pedal you won't have any issues at all :-)

Nice job.

I like silver. Iíve had quite a few silver cars which is the only reason Iíve not got one now - canít go back to silver yet. At least youíll only need to wash it once a year!

It was bad enough waiting for mine to be built/delivered. Knowing it's sat at the dealers and can't be collected must be a nightmare!!!
Hope it all gets sorted soon!! Although looking at the weather forecast this morning, you might do better waiting until next week!!!

It looks good in silver. I was split between carbon black and silver ....
