Took delivery of the following car on Wednesday @ ~5:00PM EDT...

2000 328Ci
Topaz/Grey Leather
Premium Pkg
Trunk CD

This is one excellent vehicle. Now on third day with the non-removable grin plastered on my face and not even the goo-gone will remove it.

The 5-speed is smooth as silk and after 15 years of driving american sticks, this was pure heaven. Took about 10 minutes to get used to - now having to move the old Saturn around in the driveway is painful!!!!

One annoyance - the seatbelt is too darn much of a reach and is a pain (but very minor).

One problem - the passenger door hinge ratchet thingie (that holds the door open) doesn't seem to work. Driver's door is fine.

BTW - nail polish remover worked great at removing those horrible air bag warning decals from the sun visors.

The wait was painful but this is one helluva ride - it's not quite like the kick in the pants i used to get from the 5.0L Mustang but this is so much more refined and smooth it's a pleasure.

Can't wait for the 1200 mile mark!
