Where are all the Aussie 520d owners??

Hi all. I just took delivery of a new F10 520d on January 27th and I am very impressed with it. Ordered in early November 2011 for a week 47 build, so that is pretty quick.

I would be interested in what other 520d owners are finding with their cars, both positive and negative?

I will post details of my car's spec and some photo in coming days, but in the interim mine is: Space Gray, Cinnamon leather with dark Ash wood trim and standard 520d 17" wheels.

I just collected my 520d sophisto grey, cinnamon. Business nav, xenon, comfort and heated seats, sports transmission, privacy glass, climate comfort windscreen, extended climate control. Loving all the gadgets.

The engine is a gem. I've previously has a 320d, merc c220 cdi and audi q5 2.0d. This is the best diesel 4cyl by far. Almost no lag, powerful, great 8spd auto and sounds good too! Also most economical. Averaging 6.8L/100km mixed driving.

Also loving the cinnamon interior!

Haven't ordered mine yet. Still finalising.
Coming from a Merc -- last time I had a BMW was over 15 years ago... eeeek.

Going for a 520d - white with M Sport pack.
