New member from Missouri. I just placed and order for a 535i for European delivery. Just waiting for confirmation of an early Oct. pickup. Can't wait. Also rejoined the club after a 15 year separation. Glad to be back. Also owned: 1985 318i (285,000 miles) Never a major repair! 2000 328i My wife loved the car 2003 540i The perfect machine (until the 535!) 2003 325xi Trade-in for the 535 If I had a three car garage I'd keep it. 2005 325ci Retiring this year and my wife is giving me the 535 ED as a retirement present. After 40 years of marriage I'm glad she still thinks I'm special! Of course I had to throw in Lake Como and Milan to sweeten the deal.
