Hi to all,





well after saving for a new Jag XF 3.0D S Premium Lux for nearly a year, I plumped for a new 520D M Sport :-P

Jag gorgeous car in all respects. But then I had to take a F10 out to rule it out, and I ended up buying one.

Build quality in a different league, technology miles ahead and the BMW was the safer option(better MPG, residual etc..)



520D LCI M Sport:

Sport shift auto,

M Sport Plus package,

Professional Media Package,

Advanced Parking Package,

Driving Assistant Plus Package,

Lumbar Support,

VDC,

Multi Functional Dashboard,

Speed sign reading thingy,

Imperial blue xirallic metallic,

Oyster Dakota seats



And I got a double digit discount too.

I'm toying with the idea of getting mudflaps on it - dealer says can't be done due to M Sport bodykit.



I'm more excited about the BMW than I would have been if I had ordered the Jag.

My first BMW, so very excited and can't wait until 1st March 2014.



I've already started reading the instruction manual, what else can I do to make the time go by quicker?



I've been reading the posts on this excellent forum for a few weeks now, and there are some great posts on here.

Hopefully I will be able to contribute to them too. I will post pics when I get the car.



I will proabably go for the dent and scuff removal package from the dealer.

From what I have read, the paint protection is a rip off. I want that gorgeous new car smell though!

Insurance with the options will be inteersting.





Cheers.
