Ordering M340i Touring

Just joined the forum, despite driving an X5 F16 40d for the past 3 years. The kids are getting older and need less stuff, so time for a smaller car that still allows for a decent amount of luggage (kids tat).

Landed on an M340i Touring. Test driven and all reviews rave about it - what isn't to like.

Going for:
Dravit Grey
Shadowline package
Technology package
Lumbar support (I do alot of miles)
Would love a sunroof.... but an expensive option.

Likely to be about May for delivery and I'll be voluntary terminating my contract as I'll have hit 50% of the value then.

Discount looks to be just shy of 17%.
List price of £54,070
Discounts of £9,119
Final cost £44,951

Seemed like a good deal to me. 1 that 2 other franchises (Sytner and Marshall) couldn't meet let alone beat.

I ordered from Stratstone in Chesterfield.

Did you try the broker sites first as autoebid were around 19% off. Probably a bit late now but worth a quote online.
Either way exciting times ahead!
I'm waiting for Q2 prices to arrive even with the price increase in April.

Sounds good. Shame you can't have the pano roof as it makes a huge difference in the cabin in my humble. Have you ordered the anti slip rails?

I did and this was the best I could find. Have to take into consideration the road tax increase in April and general BMW price increases in April too.

I have a pan roof now, while it's nice to have. It blinds the kids in the back and I only ever have the cover open when the roof is open. Which isn't all that often.

Didn't go for the rails...I usually buy a boot liner as pushchair wheels etc go in and out alot.
