But on to more serious matters.. Right after bee left I took off for a bit and shortly thereafter the Check Engine light came on!!! Someone tell me that it's ok for this to happen within 24 hours of buying a car this expensive :) I bought it from BMW of Riverside, which is about an hour drive from my home in Orange County. To their credit, the salesman who I dealt with will be driving out to my office tomorrow and will leave me with a loaner car (a 740!) while he brings my 540 back to the dealer to investigate. I'm quite pleased with BMW of Riverside's willingness to correct this problem; I only hope that this isn't an omen of worse things yet to come. I'm a Chevy guy by trade, this is my first German car, and first impressions often count for too much.
Aside from that little yellow light on the dashboard, what an amazing ride this thing is. I still can't believe I bought it.
