I got my order number from Williams Bolton and managed to contact BMW online chat.
It’s scheduled for September 14th build start… fab… but, they’ve ordered the wrong interior colour!
First world problems, but hope they will rectify this.
Grrr…. rant over.

Both Grimsby and Brighton are too far for me, dammit!June 18, 2020 at 10:57 am #115434
The tarraco in excellence lux i bet comes with Adaptive cruise control as standard not at a grand for a pack..
it’s the trim i’d choose in any seat right now, although the new leon when it comes out will have acc on the fr trim..
So no i wouldn’t be getting any BMW right now solely as i need acc in any car now it’s great…
As for seat / bmw / mercedes / audi / mini/ there are no dealer local to me and thats a problem for service etc, I don’t mind travelling to order and pick it up but for every issue or problem it becomes a headache..
So just not viable which is a shame plus all of them makes i listed have no acc as standard..June 19, 2020 at 2:13 am #115535
Rox yeah it does come with ACC which is also predictive so when approaching roundabouts etc its ment to know that and slow down for it. Literally only thing that is an option for it is the panoramic sunroof. Other than that its got everything you could ever want, 360 camera, Lane assist, 4 heated seats, digital dash and some of the best headlights in the market, I currently got a seat Leon myself and they are the best headlights I’ve had on any of my cars inc Mercedes and bmw. It might be a treak but its one worth making If you want value money.July 4, 2020 at 9:55 pm #117838
Couple of questions regarding the msport version.
What is the cost of metallic paint?
Are the leather seats black and what is the cost to upgrade to the Dakota leather?
Thanks in advance.July 4, 2020 at 11:20 pm #117848
metallic paint should is free on motability, special paints you pay the difference in price between metallic and special. looking at the configurator leather is included for the m sport. and there are several colors.July 5, 2020 at 9:05 am #117871
Mitch,thankyou.I meant to ask about the oyster leather option as the Dakota was on a different vehicle I was looking into,doh!July 5, 2020 at 9:21 am #117875

Elliot…. thanks, I wasnt aware you could do that. I will check it out, hopefully marshalls got some and I could bag £500 off the Ap to.July 6, 2020 at 3:49 pm #118042
Just a quick update, my scheduled build has changed from 14th September to 9th November, so there are delays for anyone ordering a factory build.July 6, 2020 at 4:34 pm #118049
I’m wondering if that will be the same for all BMW’s.July 6, 2020 at 5:41 pm #118059
Also heard from BMW today @Jan Atkinson-Carr and mine has moved to December at latest.July 6, 2020 at 7:35 pm #118071July 6, 2020 at 8:26 pm #118075
@Robr – New Mobility orders from 1st July, the dealerships opened on 29th June, it all depends on the garage, and how busy the motability guy is…lol.July 6, 2020 at 8:50 pm #118076
Yes those are good deals @gillan.July 16, 2020 at 3:58 pm #119233
I Had a hour long test drive, of the grand coupe Msport, very, very nice, smooth, quiet. Good acceleration, ok it’s not for everyone, its practicality is limited, but hey ho, what a drive. Took it on fast A roads, winding B roads, and a section of motorway, fantastic. It’s a busy ride, not soft, very sporting. Lovely interior design, and superb fit and finish. Excellent sales at vines in Redhil, Surrey . Who also matched the marshalls £500 off AP, so with good condition bonus, it’s £649. Fantastic value. Ordered alpine white with magma red leather interior. I guess the GC in the name now means Gemma Collins.

Thanks all for positive comments. Sad to see the very handy X1 Msport go, but hey, if covid has taught me one thing, let’s live a little. Looking at end of Sept, October for delivery,July 16, 2020 at 5:42 pm #119254
<p style=”text-align: left;”>Ade,</p>
The misano blue on the test car, was stunning, my eyes nearly popped out, and nearly capitulated on my white choice, but I already have a estroil blue x1, just had to go different. It looked really good.
