Thanks Brosef! And I completely agree. The 220M wheels are among my favorite features of this car.

Thanks Golffrr! I had a good buying experience but not a great one. If I can convince my wife to get an X5, I'll buy it from you!

Then, when I went to pick it up and they drove the car around, I fell in love and have been in love ever since. No regrets whatsoever. I'm doing my best to enjoy the beast but the 1500 mile break in is a new kind of torture!

No, total newb mistake! 1200 miles is still accurate (and a bit of good news to me since I had 1500 in mind).

I wanted to comment about your house as well but some one else beat me on it and you already mentioned its not yours lol
Thanks Prince of Persia! It's interesting how our patience is tested after ordering and waiting for the car to arrive, only to be met by yet another exercise in patience until we hit 1200 miles. I can't believe how much I love this car already and can only imagine how fantastic it will be after the break in period is over.

Regarding the house, my house wouldn't even make decent guest quarters on that property.

Thanks fastrack! The truth is that this car looks great in so many colors. It's a difficult choice in the end. Unless you can afford one in each color.

Added interior pics - Silver Novillo extended leather (the pics don't do it justice) with carbon leather and enhanced premium sound.

I had never seen this combo in person and was concerned as the Silver Novillo looks very blue in pics. I wanted the extended leather to break up the rest of the dark interior. I am thrilled with the end result. Love the combination and contrast and the carbon leather is fantastic!

Hey WangTang, thanks very much! It may sound silly but I miss my 325i (not enough to swap her back for the M3 though).

The 325i had just broken the 50,000 mark when I sold her to my buddy's wife. They're local so I get to see the car fairly often. In fact, they had the car detailed just before the pics were taken (looked brand new).

Cheers!

wretched creature ..... Congrats ..... Beautiful car.

My long winter wait is about over. Planning on getting the car home on 4/1. I can't wait.
q. you happy you ordered the upgraded sound system? I didn't and was wondering if you felt it is worth it.
