While on vacation 3 days ago I got the CALL from my dealer

Ordered a Black/Black m5 and was told September build and Oct/Nov delivery

M Multifunction seats, Sirius radio, comfort access, split fold-down rear seats, HUD.

Moon roof and logic 7 was standard.

Only thing I didnt get was full leather (which is required for ventilated seats.. should I change to full leather for the ventilation?)

FINALLY!!!! 2.5 years on waiting list!

I ordered aluminum trim but its not too late to change it- still pondering that one.

any suggestions on the ventilated seats/full leather and the trim option?

Congrats! I think with the black/black you want the aluminum to help break up the interior. JMHO. I like the blue onix (individual color) with the kind of ecru leather + piano black trim.

I ordered pretty much the same car but with the walnut trim. The full leather is a very nice touch but it is a bit too expensive for me

cannot believe that full leather is not standard. It was in Uk with E39 wasnt it?

Are we talking about full leather or is it some leather option on top of all seats and doors??

In Canada and USA, the car comes standard with 'extended leather', the 'full leather' option extended the leather to the top of the dash (where the speedo and vents are) and the glove box door (i think...)

freddydi, i would go with the 'full leather' it adds a nice touch of class and warmth to the interior, you are already spending a god awful lot for this car, whats another couple grand? :noSMG:

I ordered basically the same thing, Saphire black/black full leather. I went with the walnut trim, the olive ash looks way to light, and the aluminum in my opinion looks way to cheap, the walnut isnt my favourite colour i would have preffered birch anthracite or piano gloss....

cheers

Not sure of the US, but in Canada, PDC can be ordered individually or part of the 'Executive Package'. Its front and back...

Re: US Dealers have their "allocations"...

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have also ordered my car which was already in 112 status when the dealer got the allocation, so it must be a week 36 car. Have to move quickly. I ordered from my cruise ship on the Baltic. Interesting timing, since I'll meet Gustav in Stockholm today!

A08 Silver Grey
X2SW Full black Merino leather
322 Comfort access
416 Power rear sunshade
4ME Walnut Madiera
4MA M multi-function seats
453 Seat ventilation
610 Head up display

Any thoughts on the perforated leather (seat ventilation), my only concern?

Nice to meet you MJ and you wife and the two mini-MJ! I hope you enjoyed some of the glimpses from the m5board.com video-CD. Have a safe trip with the cruise ship.
