I got my 328i s/p last Friday, and it was amazing how many Hondas, Navigators, Lexus, thought I insulted their car. The tailgating, cutting off and other stuff was eyeopening.
: I ordered it in January:
: Steel Blue
: Sport Package
: HK sound + CD
: Grey leather / alu trim
: Now for the interesting stuff. Two days before I picked the car up it was very nice, but on the day I did the deed it was snowing, and continued to snow that evening. Naturally, the garage was full of stuff, so the car had to suffer (please don't punish me..). To get me back, less than 24 hours later, I go around a corner, the backend feels "funny", 25 seconds later, at 80Mph, the passenger-side rear tire BLOWS UP! Apparently I had ran over something super nasty as the entire carcass of the tire seperated, and rolled past us when we came to a stop. Lovely. Indeed, the carcass, after being retrieved from 50 yards up the road, showed a massive gash starting in the middle, and continuing to the sidewall, where there was a coresponding hole deep into the rubber. Yep, ran over something.
: Fortunately BMW provides a full-size spare, so no worries. After almost 310 miles I am completely in love with this object.
: Is it just me, or does everyone pretend they are going to hit your new car? :)
: The sport suspension is surprisingly firm. I am most impressed. It may be too much for some however. I love it though!!
