Baby is home!!!

Just wow, I haven't been able to wipe this permanent grin off my face all day!! Off to put some more miles on the car, but here are a few pics. The car looks better on the road or at home. Not sure why, think in the dealership perspective of size is off...

Those are shift lights that come standard with all M-DCT equipped cars.

Thanks, guys. Been one hell of day. I drove to the dealership as soon the truck arrived. No idea what was up with the broken truck story yesterday, maybe the driver stopped for a meth break. Who knows. Regardless, had the car from mid-day. IT IS SO HARD not to rev past 5500. Caught myself doing it twice, the car begs for it, hard to describe unless your driving.
Its funny, already had a couple of people start conversations based on the car. I didn't think it would garner as much attention as it does, but there are tons M fans out there.

DCT: Not pushing it yet, but in S1 or D1 the shifts are very smooth. Others have mentioned it, but it still surprised not to feel anything on the shifts. In auto mode, you'll be cruising in 7th gear(happened to be around 50 mph) and wonder how you got there. The cars shifted 5-6 times in the span of 10-15 seconds, all of them seemless. Only giveaway is watching the rpms drop. Under 4000 rpm, very relaxed. Going to "try" and get some sleep.
