    The eagle has landed. Car is in Lexington, getting cleaned up and registered.
    The way my week is shaping up, I won't go see it until Saturday and will report back on what I saw/ felt...

    That's exciting news ! Here are a couple of small issues common on the E9x platform. My 2009 335 had both:

    1) the radio pixels will fade
    2) the door handles will peel and feel sticky

    Let's find out if the vert has the above issues. The radio looks ok in the pics.

    It was a drizzly afternoon and these are my impressions.

    Gorgeous outside clean all around on the outside with pristine wheels, tires at 5/32 (), paint looked uber nice but there was a layer of fine mist on it so, can't tell. I will go back tomorrow during the daylight.

    OFHG is seeping, no humidity in the right headlight while there is some in the advert picture. Everything works. Trunk is mother heavy to lift open.

    Brakes a pretty close to new and all computer function indicate >30,000 miles before next maintenance except oil at 15,000 miles. So looks like they changed the oil. That's about it and typical of my prior carmax experience.

    Car feels tight and heavy, i did not hear sounds coming from the hardtop while going over tight corners into parking lots with bumps. I am used to the disensitizing Audi boat.

    Engine is different that the E46 6 cylinder (my 325i). Not that impressed by the power even though it has >50 Hp compared to mine! Maybe I didn't push enough.

    Seats are comfy, driver side bolster is thinning but plenty of leather to go. THat's good.

    more to come...
