Man, I can't stand the pressure you guys all puttin' on me. And...and...I thought I gave you what you guys wanted. I posted that pic you know. What else do you guys want?...I'm gonna call the police!...Better yet, I'll sue you for all the bad press you caused about me for not doing this or that.

OK guys. The moment of truth is really close. 2 hrs and 6 minutes to be exact. Of course, I didn't get any sleep really.

So, the looming question (the most important question I've had to answer throughout this whole process; more important than color, options, or transmission choice): which pair of shoes is the most appropriate for this historical occasion?

Simply amazing....

I’ve been driving for 3 hours. Stopped by my place to chug some food down. Pit stop that is. Took me about 30 minutes to get dialed in with the settings and the car, and then the games began. Simply amazing! The responsiveness of the engine and agility of the chassis is fucking unbelievable!

Full coverage and nicer pics most likely tomorrow night…

Also, thanks to WCH who showed up and over the car with me during delivery!

Lucid - Thanks for letting me be there when you got your car and be jealous in person. Although others have said it before, the JB/FR/CL is amazing in person. They are very complex colors that look great in real life. I'm now questioning my SSII/Black/CL even though it's too late (status 151). I'm sure I will like it too.

I got to be the "chase car" for a while in my X5. The car sounds amazing from behind. When Lucid pushed the revs, the X5 was no match - I even hit the rev limiter on the X5 trying to keep up for one short section. The muffler didn't look as bad as I feared from behind.

The car really does have presence. When Lucid and I took different paths, I immediately passed an E46 M3. The E46 still looks great but the E92 is just as eye catching.

Congrats Lucid - at the rate you are going you will have the break-in done in no time.

PS: None of you have guessed the shoes he picked (see pic).

PPS: Lucid's CA knew all about the Nebraska fiasco - he made a few jokes...
