...traded in my 2002 E39... (A moment of silence, if you please, for a really nice car that I enjoyed like I can't describe......thanks.) ...and took home the '06 E90 330i last night. And all I can say is WOWEEE!!! What a car! It's a CPO 2006 330i with 6-speed manual, Logic7 sound (complete with Bluetooth, Sirius sattelite AND Aux jack for listenting to iPOD/Pandora!), loaded, clean as a whistle inside and out, Dark Blue with tan interior and wood-grain trim, @49000 miles at time of delivery...VERY happy right now. Yessss...it has run-flats...which I wasn't initially happy about. But after driving the car on a test drive and driving it @50 miles to work today, the car rides solid and smooth. I expected the tires to feel like the stone ones on Fred Flintstone's car, but was pleasantly surprised. I won't replace the run-flats with new RFTs when it's time for new rubber, opting instead for conventional tires, but for now they are better than I originally expected. Yessss...it doesn't have a dipstick. But I have a button I can push that tells me what the oil level is without getting out of the vehicle. No, I won't be able to look at the oil color but I have old-school maintenance done on my cars anyway so the oil will be changed at least every 5K regardless. Pics to follow...(which by the way, how DOES one upload pictures to a post...can I simply push the "Upload a File" button, or does the picture have to be on the web w/a URL? ) Joy indeed!!
