New ZCP E90, a couple pics

Yet another SG E90 ZCP. Finally put some miles on it today; thought I'd take some pictures. Now have just over 700. Oddly, it's starting to suggest a service. Seems early?

Love the car. I think I might go for some lightweight 18s for daily duty, but otherwise the car's very nearly perfect (for me).

A few pics:

That's a great combo; especially in person - the ZCP wheels look super aggressive, but still classy.

I'm always amazed how BMW, and to a large extent Audi, are able to consistently design such attractive wheels - these days anyway ; )

ZCP on the sedan is awesome and somewhat rare. I like it!

Love the car!!

Concerning the service warning, I think I figured it out (as same thing happened to me), I believe at approximately 600miles before you are due, it warns you that service is coming up. If you go in the iDrive and check the car status, you'll see under the oil section it will have a counter that tells you how many miles are left before you are actually due for an oil change.

SG is a great color - Doesn't require as much maintenance as other colors

...and all the other comments:

Wow, thanks guys for all of the support:

* I love SG, and agree it hides dirt pretty well. The pics are after a ~80 mile drive Sat AM, largely in the rain (Seattle, what do you expect? )
* Just realized the car matches the trim color we picked for our cabin. Carpet matches the drapes.
* Thanks for all the comments on the cabin. Little place on Puget Sound. Lots of fun.
* Thanks for the tip on the service reminder. I was a little surprised that it warned me so far before the 1200mi service, but the ~600mi delta probably makes sense for the longer service intervals.
* And, I agree re: the ZCP wheels, I'm in love. Though, they are a PITA to clean. Almost as bad as the sport-design rims I had on my old 996.

Glad to have joined the club. Amazing cars we all have...

Your car inspired the purchase. Hope to see/meet you out at one of the local track days.

Shots were taken out at our cabin -- nothing but a big barn full of mice out there, that the cars are staying out of.

It's garaged @ home, don't worry

For the interior shots, till I get around to it: Imagine a zero option black leather interior, with carbon-leather trim, and you've got it.

1200 mile service indicator begins to warn for an appointment 500 miles or so before it's needed.
