Nice spec, all the important boxes ticked!

I hope you have better luck than I have had with sytner (or accurately shitner)!

Wednesday is going to be a long old day and night!

Mine is being delivered tomorrow. It's going to be a struggle waiting until midnight before I'm allowed to drive it. At least I will have time to get it set up as I want.

It's being trailered all the way from South Wales to Nottingham as my company fell out with the local dealers...

Anyway, mine is a 520d M Sport in Alpine White with the controversial Cinnamon interior, Professional Media, 19" 351M Alloys and M Rear Spoiler.

I'm counting down the hours!

My current car is a 118d M Sport in Alpine White so I'm a kind of an Alpine White veteran!

I notice that you too have chosen the cinnamon interior. It was a difficult choice for me, but I think it's the right one. It sure doesn't look great in most of the photographs I've seen, but the ones I've seen in the flesh have convinced me to go for it.

Cinnamon is difficult in my own house (I love it, my wife tolerates my love....), but it looks superb. Brown inside white outside is a seriously classy combination that is so much better than coal hole black as so many people default to.

If you're getting your car tomorrow you must be giddy!

I was very giddy earlier on today as I was supposed to get it delivered this afternoon, but I had my bonfire extinguished somewhat when a woman from the dealer called to tell me that they had discovered that the windows weren't functioning and they had to order a replacement part. I'm not happy about it to be honest as they have had the car for almost 2 months, so why they waited until the morning of delivery to PDI it I don't know. Also, they didn't phone me until the very last minute.

I've now got a Ford Fungus in a fetching Postman Pat red to drive around in until it finally arrives as I have already given my 1 series up. To be honest it's not bad as hire cars go, but its no 5 series!

Anyway, looks like I should get it tomorrow. I wouldn't have been able to drive until midnight this evening anyway.

Do you agree that the cinnamon interior looks entirely different in real life than it does in pictures?

Sorry for the delay in posting a response. Car arrived Thursday as promised, and very impressed. Nice smooth ride. IPOD connected displaying album covers. I have even managed to get the office function highlighting and reading me emails out from my blackberry Torch. So far 10 out of 10...... will post pictures before she gets dirty....

It's a lovely car, but I am another one who knew nothing of the Sport option available for the Auto box. Missed out on a bargain apparently...

If your from Essex and your wife's a slapper! The fake orange tan won't show up on the vomit coloured leather.

Oh and your trade in value is also up to £1k less.

1. You don't like it then
2. As you brand it "fake orange" you've clearly never seen it in the flesh
3. As mine is a company car I couldn't give a rats about the trade in value

Anyway, we like it, you don't, so to quote Chef from South Park, fudge'ye
