Me three - what's up with that? She's a beauty. Best of luck, go eat up some entrance ramps!

Nice choice of interior color,also I love the way the spoiler looks

Thanks for all the compliments. The pictures really don't do the car justice. The colors look even better in person.

The chrome window trim is what you get with the 330. The 325 gets a matte black trim. Opting for the sport package does not replace the chrome trim with Shadowline trim like on our X5's. I would have loved that! As you can imagine, there are people out there who have replaced the black trim with chrome and chrome for black. If they ever come out with Shadowline on say the M3, I'd love to have that.

The spoiler is really very nice. It and the lights were absolute must-do's for me. Yes, I wouldn't even take delivery until they were installed. The spoiler didn't really fit properly out of the box. This is supposedly quite common. Lots of Betalink adhesive and clamps are required to make it conform to the curve of the trunk.

I haven't driven it much so it's still adapting to my driving style. Plus, I am trying to be good about break-in. So far it's great. The Comfort Access is so cool. It seems like laziness but to be able to unlock the doors by just touching the outside handle and starting the car with only a push of a button is so slick. There are just so many cool little things about the car. I discovered bright white LED's under each exterior door handles that lights up the ground. So cool!

I kind of wish I did the tint darker but I think it's just right. What do you think?

Damn the mods! There are some for a second wave but I really have to cool it. There is a great M Sport steering wheel that looks very nice but I must say that the stock sport steering wheel feels and looks great. I would LOVE to remove the ambers from the headlights but it is nearly impossible. The only solution is a set of Euro clears which cost about $1500. New wheels would be nice too but again, the stock ones look pretty good to me. Of course after a year or so, I might be bored of them. Like I said, damn mod bug.

The tails I got at dealer cost which is $175. They can be had for about that price from a couple of different dealers that sell on eBay. The spoiler I also got at cost which was about $250 pre-painted. That is a great deal considering it's painted by BMW. There is an adhesive kit that is recommended and that is a seperate item. My dealer totally hooked me up on the add-ons. I have never referred to them as my "stealer". They're great.

Thats awesome! We can't wait for our new 335ci to come, sept baby! The first time I drove an E90 it was my x, Steven whos a service tech for BMW's 325i with every option and I drove it 100 miles home from picking up his other car (S60R) and I LOVED the 325i, so I decided I had to have one, so I was about to order and bam, the coupe came out and I just fell in Love *grin*

Hey Kev,

Just curious as to why you didn't blur out your license plate in the 7th pic?

That's one sharp lookin' ride. I'm really diggin' the Black Sapphire and Terra Dakota combo. And : The tint looks great just the way it is, and the spolier and rear lights complement the overall look, quite nicely.

Good luck with it.
