New Car (Pics and Video Added)

After months of searching for just the right thing, i found a new car. I found a CPO 325xi ZSP with a stick. I had been flip-flopping between an E90 and an E83 for a while, but after three weeks of driving an SUV (and too many $75 fill ups) I decided the 28MPG was the way to go.

I pick it up wednesday, and will def. post pics.


One quirk I've found: the car, despite not having comfort access works without the key. It only does if you take the key out then restart it, but I think its kind of cool. I was showing a friend, and said "if it had the option", pressed the button "it would start right now" and then started laughing

Pics Below!

sweet! So I assume it's a 2006? (not an E46?)

I'm sure he was just casually driving along?

That sucks - what did he hit?

Not really, we're pretty much at the point where it all turns to rain. (2.5" of ice right now, brutal stuff) I've taken the stock Conti something or others into the last two nuisance (3-6) storms and the car has reminded me of my old Audi. If I end up in Denver, I'll get some dedicated snows, but otherwise I'm good with these.
