Hello from city near Brussels, Belgium.

Recently ordered the BMW i4 M50 as company car.
Since I drove BMW already for 6 years now, being happy about it, why change? ;)

Due to my wife already having an ICE SUV (Q5) where we could go on holiday with over the next couple of years, without the country-crossing issues with recharging battery, I opted for an EV from BMW.

After carefully test-driving the EQC, iX3, and some other PHEV in the Mercedez / BMW gamma, being able to optionize the i4 M50 significantly, this seemed like the best choice, even though there was no test drive possible during my period to choose a company car...

FYI - Colors chosen by wife, to keep marriage happy ;)

Would you have chosen other colours yourself?

LOL, another one "onder de sloef". Just kidding. I have the same discussions here. I can choose whatever I want, as long as she can pick the color...
To be honest, I had to convince her about allowing me 500hp+, so leaving her the color was a good option :LOL:

Other colors like the blue or grey seem nice in the configurator, but doubted how it would look like IRL, so opted for safe option! Interior red is nice ;)

Went to BMW Bornem to check the colors IRL first. M Brooklyn Grau convinced me because the Frozen Portimao was just the extra cost too much 😂

Got a confirmation today that the home charger or wallbox is ready for installation about one month before actual delivery of the car... Now playing the waiting game... :whistle:

Hi Dirk,
Orderd my M50 around the beginning of September and got a expected delivery time around 31 may 2022.
What was the expected delivery time of yours? I heard that if You're ordering one now, you won't get one untill somewhere 2023.

I chose Portimao blue btw, but still doubting to switch to brooklyn grey 😅

When I got confirmation of the order (Oct 2021), the sales rep mentioned summer 2022. However in virtual corridors, there are rumors that some lease companies under pressure do influence the production/delivery date because of their contract with certain companies.
