waiting, waiting, waiting

(I still have to post pics of my ED back in July, I promise I will get some up ASAP.)

Long story short, after a lemon'd M3 back in March, I picked up a new one in Munich last month and I am currently waiting delivery (ship docks tomorrow ). In any case, we took the plant tour (twice) with my wife, and she was super impressed with how the cars are built. The day we got back I lured her into our local BMW dealership and we traded in the Lexus RX350 for this X5 diesel. She has never been a fan of BMWs, but I think the X5 will change her mind about them (except for putting gas which she hates as diesel pumps are always dirty, so I have taken on that role hehehehe)

So I have been playing with the X5 til the M3 gets here.

I will get some more pics with the M3 when it gets here.



(switched to the smaller wheels when we took it on a quick road trip last weekend)

^^ felt a bit more nimble (and potentially gave us better MPG) but nothing major. Although the traction of the wider rear tires was noticed a little on certain turns
