Post 1200

Well picked up the sled today after 1130 miles and my 1200 mile service. 70 miles is close enough in my book!

Gotta say I fell in love with this car all over again after hearing this thing sing at near 8400 RPM ( I still have not taken her all the way to redline ). The DCT is awesome and even better now that I dont have to babysit it an make sure it doesnt over rev while I am not paying attention in auto mode.

The San Diego BMW service department was well aware of the early DCT fluid issues and said they had received a large bulletin on the issue and that I had nothing to worry about....great service despite some horror stories I have heard about the place.

Love this car!
