It's vey quiet in this forum, is this due to a lack of interest in the car or lack of members on this forum?

I've placed an order for fully loaded M240i (no tow bar or driving assistant package) Brooklyn Grey and am now waiting until Jan.
Any others taken the plunge?

Lack of discounts I suspect, we're used to getting -20% off via TRL.
I asked him - response below backs up your theory:

HI buddy. Sorry we cannot quote discounts on unlaunched new models.
We have taken 6 or so deposits based on list price, thats all we can do for now sorry.
Once the car is launched and the fuss dies down, then they will allow me to offer on these. thanks.

I'm on the verge of ordering tomorrow.

Brooklyn grey with cognac interior
Most of the options boxes ticked
3k down from me and 410pm.

I've been looking at something silly for a while for this price and this ticks all the boxes for me. I love the look of it too, contrary to most others!

That's a very good price! Is that for a M240? If so.. where from!

I will still hold on until I can see one, although the looks are really growing on me, especially the rear.

For the people that have placed orders, are the dealers confident of actually getting you a car with regards to the chip shortage issues etc.

Complete radio silence… but it's too early to expect any Comms at the moment I think.
Ive had no feedback suggesting limitations on options or chip related impacts. These are being built in Mexico so I'm not sure if that helps or not, I guess a global shortage is a global issue…

Guys could someone who's ordered or spoke to a dealer with the proper system confirm we can get more than black or cognac in the UK?

That's all I can see on the online configuration thing.

Obs not. Maybe it's for the 220d.

As stated in the 1st post, I've ordered Brooklyn Grey, today I drove to BMW Crewe who have a BG M4 outside.
I loved the colour, good contrast with the black. Obviously haven't seen the 240 in the flesh yet but at least any uncertainties I had about the colour have well and truly gone.

If it was a straight 3k plus 427 pm you have scores of people making their way to every dealer (but you'd have to get past me in the queue first). As has been said above, without taking p/e into consideration you are going to be in the ballpark of 6 mths plus 600

Those of us who have ordered one without even seeing it, pop down to the PGA Golf Wentworth. They have one on display. Its stunning!

No regrets whatsoever. I even like the rear!

Now for the long wait!
