Congrats on finally getting the LSB beast. I didn't have 2 days to read the entire thread (missed the middle parts) but silver interior looks like extended leather as well? Good combo and enjoy having an original (for now).

Did you do a lap in your car (pre-break in?) or with a loaner? I think it would be too hard to do a hot lap during the break-in period, not sure I have that much restraint.

:-( I do feel like an idiot. I got the blue that looks nearly like black. I should have gotten laguna seca, but haste prevailed over prudence and deliberation.

Yes, I got the silver extended leather with the carbon leather trim. All the driving on the course is with the Performance Center's vehicles. I actually got to drive an M5 during my driving on the course. The "hot lap" is done by their instructors while we sit in as passengers (and get tossed back and forth in our seats as they drive!)

Thanks. You're the one that got the ball rolling on this car. Perhaps there will be increased interest in special order paint.

My car came with 3 miles on it. A few days before I used google maps to send directions to my car for my next destination (Concord, NC) and the message was in my car when I picked it up. So it was good trying out that feature right away. Oh yea, the car drives nice too.

It's fairly straight forward. Do a search in google maps, "send" it, then fill out some additional information. You also need to have an e-mail account that has been associated with your BMW Assist account. The following thread has more info.
