Won't have it back for a couple of weeks, and then need to do the break-in. On a another note, damn, my 335i loaner is nice. I used to have a 996 Turbo and I'm a sucker for gobs of torque. I'd like to try out a 335d sometime.
Also, thank God for CPO coverage...
Good for you. New or rebuilt motor is a huge win for an '08 owner.

What's the warranty on the new motor? Should be above and beyond your CPO specific warranty, too.
