Cool So I come home to find this.........(Pix added!)

After getting tired of having nothing to do on the UVa campus, I decided to come home for this weekend. As expected, the train was 2 hours late and I got back to Union Station quite tired. I was glad to see my parents and I'm very happy to be hime, but I must say, the biggest surprise was..............

My parents had traded the Civic for 2006 BMW 325i

So according to the window sticker here's what's on it:

Titanium Silver w/Black leather
Automatic
Sport
Premium
Cold Weather
sunshades rear and rear-side
PDC
Comfort Access
Logic7
Active Steering (eekkk!)

VERY interesting is the fact, this is one of those South Africa assembled 3-series that leak into the US. So, we'll be the guinea pigs and see if there is a difference in quality and reliability.

Aite I'll edit more and post pics later.........

sweet! Post pics when you can!
I assume this one was used? Or was it sitting on the lot for a year?

Yes, this one was CPO. It had *just* gotten in and my parents put down a deposit for it before someone else could get it.

Photos this morning!

Yay! I finally got some quick photos done this morning . The car hasn't been detailed so I didn't think it'd be worth it to do some fancy photoshoot.











Yes yes, I know the wood trim is less than ideal, but that's what happens when you buy pre-owned. I looked up how to get an oil change done on E90post, but at the same time saw all these neat mods. Sad thing is, I've already got some small mods planned. For example, I've already disabled the headlamp washers . Then it's the rear foglights possibly over winter break, maybe aluminum pedals? Maybe swap out the wood for aluminium trim? I might even switch the shift lever since I actually haven't warmed up to the shiny plastic trim on the lever. I know, I'm such a bad boy.......thinking of mods 2 days after I see it!

I'm still quite attached to the X3 yesterday, probably because I'm more used to it. But I like the "normal" steering on the X3, and I prefer the better throttle response along with the normal brakes. The knobs are bit overdone on the new BMWs; I prefer the old button-fest dashboard on the X3.

Nice looking car Matt! Congrats!

Btw, why would you disable the headlight washers when you can simply not push the button that works them?
