I will try to go by today or tomorrow and snap a few photos. I will post more info as I get it.

This was at Classic BMW.
I can confirm this as well. Just called & talked to my SA/CA. He said it's a Silverstone II w/Fox red interior. I'd love to go check it out but it's snowing & it's rush hour traffic right now...doh!

Spoke to BMW Clear Lake and the coupe is in, being prepped and will be in the showroom later Friday or Saturday at the latest. CA will confirm by tomorrow whether it can be driven or not. Sedan is scheduled to arrive next week. Same spec's as the Midtown sedan it sounds like. I am going to try to swing by the Midtown store tonight or tomorrow and check out the red leather in person.

Dealers are being so funny about test drives. First word from my dealer is the demos are being sold; no test drives. Now, there seems to be some question about whether they will sell the car or use it as a demo.

To further complicate matters, even if they do sell (or attempt to sell) the demo cars, they may allow test drives, or may simply allow you to RIDE in the car with the dealer driving. My CA says "People may not want to buy a car this expensive if it has 100 miles on it" to which I replied "I don't really want to spend this much on a car without test driving it."

Oh, and I think the coupes are red on beige, which is IMO the absolute worst color combo available. Seems it would be smarter to just demo these.

Different strokes for different folks I guess since I love Melbourne red metallic (in pics at least) although I prefer black leather interior. Anyway, can you or anybody confirm for sure the coupe is Melbourne red metallic? I'm going down to Houston end of this month & would love to see it in person IF they haven't sold it by then. Thx!

I saw an Apline White/ Black extended yesterday with the exact packages you have. I am in San Diego right now and went to go look at one here. It is absolutely gorgeous. I hope to be in mine in two weeks!!!!

I stopped by BMW of North Houston today at lunch. They have a demo MB/Bamboo. They said it was not spoken for and plan to keep it a few weeks before selling it. Not sure if they will allow test drives but not today. They had another car that I didn't see but it was a customer car.
Didn't get a chance to go up to the Woodlands to see the sedan.

I was at Momenum Southwest today...they have a Melbourne Red, bamboo,carbon fiber,.....but no carbon fiberroof ...sun roof instead....was able to get in it, start it, and rev the engine, twice. I have bought 2 M3's through these guys, and they offered to sell this car to me at MSRP.

car was optioned out at $69,000......unless your a repeat buyer, they will raise the price for a minimum of 5 grand...thats what the sales man told me.....

i think the car look's "f-ing" fast just sitting there. red looks much better in person..... I had to pass on it though....i'd have a hard time not having the carbon fiber roof.

The Volvo dealership next door (I did not go by there) but i was told they have one as well but they are adding 10,000$ to the price. a truck is supposed to arrive tomorrow with a couple more.

BMW of Austin has a Melbourne Red/Bamboo coupe that's sold but in the showroom, beautiful. They also have a SSII/Fox Red sedan fully loaded in PDI that will be a demo, going for a test drive tomorrow. They expect a Black/Black coupe this week that will also be demo.

I loved how SSII and FR looked in the sedan, that's what I'm going with, still can't decide on which trim.

I checked out SSII/FR sedan at BMW Woodlands today at lunch. The CA took me for a spin (he drove) and it was great. The engine sounded great at 4k rpm when we first started and once it warmed up he rev'd to 5500 and it was awesome. He did take some sharp turns and it handled beautifully. We were at 80 and it pulled easily when he put some gas to it. I can't wait to hear it at 8400 rpm.
As for the SSII/FR combo, I went there mainly to see FR. I had never (and still don't) plan to get silver. I was planning on AW/FR however, but now I'm not sure. The FR didn't quite wow me like I wanted it to. It was very nice but I hoped for a little more red. Now I'm debating AW/FR, AW/Black, or MR/Black.
