New to the board here. I put down my deposit with Advantage BMW midtown here in Houston. I am #18 on the coupe list. Here's what I am thinking

Alpine white
black leather
carbon trim
premium
19 inchers
electronic damp. suspension

Welcome G. I went through Advantage as well and my Alpine White should hopefully be there in 3 weeks so go check in on it if you would like.

I agree G. It will make the ride quite enjoyable! I too have a 325i from them and things have been great with them. So no worries what so ever from their end.

I have a Z8 knob in my E46 that I like. Just picked up a new one I may use in the E92.

Gratz GMANTX ... who did you use down at Advantage? I used Ricardo and he has been great so far. I ordered a Sedan and should not be too long before it arrives. Be more than happy to let ya take a peek should you wish.
Send me an email: mduval1988@yahoo.com and let me know how to reach ya here in Houston.
