My car was delivered to Port Hueneme on Tuesday August 28th and they were able to take delivery of the car the very next day on the 29th. It was delivered so soon from Customs / VPC that no one really knew it was coming until it arrived
I also want to thank Aaron. He did the PDI on my car and did a great job!!!
At this point I don't have a huge number of pics. I'm in the middle of doing my first detail which i'll complete and take pics of over the coming days. I drove the car about 50 miles back from camarillo to LA and all i can say is WOW and Oh, Crap...i've got to miss that debris in the road
Next week i have an all day appointment at Premier Mobile Group in Orange. I'm having them install a clear bra on the full hood, front bumper, front fenders, rockers, mirrors, and a couple of other areas. I'll definitely post more pics when i have them.
As it sits the car is at home safe in the garage at home until i can get it cleaned up and the clear bra installed. More patience
Here are a couple of pics with the wet one being just after her first bath. I've never posted pictures before, so i hope this works.
Thanks for posting pics of your beautiful car!
I really like LeMans Blue..... what a terrific, sparkly, 'pure' blue.
And nice undercarriage shot

Thanks bruza! Yes, I will take interior shots of the piano trim after I've detailed the interior this weekend. I was a bit paranoid how they would clean my interior (given how the interior on our 335i used to look after
they would 'clean' it post-service
), so will do it myself.
Oops, forgot to reply: DCT. I enjoy driving manual, but like this car's DCT transmission.
