: Our local dealer received two 99 2.3's today. Both white with tan interior. The 5 speed was already pre-sold. It only had leather, cruise and fog lights.
: The one we drove was Automatic, had chrome wheels, BMW In-dash Cd player which would not work. Also had fog lights, prem. package & heated seats, with sports seats. We were very impressed with the car. HELL of a buy over the 1.9. The engine was very peppy and the exhaust note was traditional BMW. Now after having the opportunity to drive the 2.3 we are even more excited about the arrival of our newest family member
: (our baby). We are counting the days and there are approximately 16 long ones.

I saw 2 of the 2.8's at Dreyer & Reinbold in
Indianapolis yesterday. One was black and one
was Boston Green. The black was an auto and
the Boston Green was 5 speed. One car had
the 1.9 style wheels and one had round spoke
16". There was not an option on either for a
wheel upgrade. One had an in dash CD that
was a $200 option. Both had the exhaust
outlets like the 2.8. Both were really nice cars
and were at around $34m retail. Looks like BMW has come up with a very nice replacement for the 1.9. Entry level roadster
motoring has just gotten a whole lot better. I am
still lusting for an M-Roadster. Just can't seem
to reconcile with the big loss I would have to
take on my 98 2.8. I have had these problems
ever since I got back from Homecoming.
