Just finished specing the car last night,

Sapphire Black Metallic,
Black Full Nappa Leather
M Sports Seats(With the lumbar support)
Bluetooth phone upgrade
Brushed Aluminium trim

Will arrive in April :M5launch:

What is everyone elses spec, is everyone going for the full leather and the seats which I think are a must.

all the best

Well, I would have noted down the spec I have ordered here............but suffice to say if you see an identical vehicle to yours, it'll probably be mine :)

Very nice fellas. Does the car come standard with the logic 7 stereo? if not, I would recommend it unless you want to do an aftermarket stereo. The L7 is about as good as a 7/10 on a well done after market system- but its about a 9.5/10 for an OEM one- JMHO.

Actually, I was probably somewhat brief.

The L7 is not standard and yes I have added it. In addition, I have specified the alacantra roof lining and the rear seat heating. The windscreen with the green shade band was added at last minute ( could not believe that was not standard )

If I were going for Black/Black then I would consider full leather too; but since I have chosen a brown(ish) colour for the interior it would be too overwhelming in full leather. I actually prefer the two tone black/brown effect, especially on the doors, that you get with extended leather.

Also, since we have two boys both under three full leather would simply get spoilt. The black plastic trim on places such as the lower door panels can withstand scuffs (& vomit & coke & ice cream etc.) much better than any leather.

My car is very highly specced otherwise. I am currently in India but will post an updated spec once I get back.

Finally, I must say that April delivery for RHD seems very early Adam. Have you got some special arrangement for an early car or is a dealer demo/HEA vehicle?

We were were thinking about the stereo too, however myself and family are not too into music :)

Ashok,

I agree full leather with the little ones would be too difficult to clean,
re: april, i just asked to be put down on the list back before we got our e39, i think we were first in the country;)

best wishes
adam

Adam, How come you will get yours in April? Are you buying LHD in Europe. The first Demos will be in UK early May ready for the 17 May UK Launch. I have been told the earliest customer cars will be August!!

Our salesman(who we have had for 5+ years and is very good) said April, but ill believe it when i see it,probably will be May, but fingers crossed.

August is when the second car for the dealership will be delivered.

Adam, Think you will find the one arriving in May will be the demo which they cannot sell until it has been used for 3 or 4 months. If you are no 1 on the list then likely delivery date is August. I am no 1 at Barons in Farnborough and expect to get it August.

Yes - that is what I am told. I am number one at Sytners in London and told 2 August (which has been confirmed by the factory not just by a salesperson).

Adam - if this is what is confirmed by the factory please let us know! I would like to start knocking heads if that is the case!
