Lucid - Thanks for letting me be there when you got your car and be jealous in person. Although others have said it before, the JB/FR/CL is amazing in person. They are very complex colors that look great in real life. I'm now questioning my SSII/Black/CL even though it's too late (status 151). I'm sure I will like it too.

I got to be the "chase car" for a while in my X5. The car sounds amazing from behind. When Lucid pushed the revs, the X5 was no match - I even hit the rev limiter on the X5 trying to keep up for one short section. The muffler didn't look as bad as I feared from behind.

The car really does have presence. When Lucid and I took different paths, I immediately passed an E46 M3. The E46 still looks great but the E92 is just as eye catching.

Congrats Lucid - at the rate you are going you will have the break-in done in no time.

PS: None of you have guessed the shoes he picked (see pic).

PPS: Lucid's CA knew all about the Nebraska fiasco - he made a few jokes...
