The car is a 525xi. Cold weather and premium packages..... heated wheel & seats, 6 speed auto, AWD, sat radio, HIDs, every available option except for navi which is OK. It has the multimedia entertainment with full Ipod control, etc. Ambient lighting, retractable headlight wipers, tool kits, etc. Titanium silver metallic with black leather and wood accents.

I still have my '92 fox and plan to get it to full showroom condition over the next year or two.
I love the BMWs interior. My boss has/had a 7xx series and it was really nice. SAme with the 5-series, they are incredible. Does it have the iDrive ? It sounds like you got a real deal. That's good to hear.

Also wanted to let everyone know that you should check the classifieds here later today and through this week, I will have lots of parts for sale. I sold my car today and am returning it to stock, except for the spoilers and stripes.
Before I bought my Stang I was looking at the Z4 BMW. In two years I'll buy a new DD not sure what yet muhahaha!

Wow Tom after all the time and money I'm shocked. I can't see myself getting rid of the Stang ever. Even if there was some killer deal on a GT500. I'm just to emotionally attached to the car now. Either way though congrats on the new car. Don't disapear on us now.

Everyone have a safe New Years Eve.

Kidding aside, have fun with your new BMW. Too bad you couldn't sell your car as is with all the mods. It's like creating a masterpiece only to take it apart.

Yeah I know, but I'd never get the price of the parts that way...... plus now, I got what I wanted out of the base car, got my new car ready to pickup this weekend, and after I sell my parts will have (hopefully) close to $8k in my pocket.

BMW is offering great financing deals on CPO for sure.

I'm surprised that you decided on the smallest motor, considering your Mustang setup! I would have seen you as more of a 550 guy

Good morning sleepy heads! Happy New Year!

Just getting ready for the cruise and decided to check in. It be foggy outside, departure time today is at 7:00 a.m. I'll post some pictures later. Might install the Moroso PS tank this afternoon. Hope all of you made it safely back to your caves last night. Fly what does TAO stand for.
