My business partner invited me to the delivery of his X5 3.0 today. I have to say while I'm not a huge SUV fan, I will be the first to admit, it is an awfully nice SUV. :thumbup: Delivery was at Wide World of Cars. His client advisor, Joe Segretti, did a great job at delivery, and their detail guy did a nice job on the steel grey exterior. Of course, Wide World also sells Ferraris, so I would expect their detail guy to be competent.

The X5 3.0 is no autocross champion, and it won't win many stoplight races, but for what it is, it is an incredibly competent vehicle, and very luxurious, more so than my 330Ci. I am very impressed. His was equipped with SP, PP, CWP, xenons and maybe one or two other items I can't recall.

Anyway, thought I'd share a few pics...

Congrats to your partner! Nice color choice.

How come the car came with the license plates already? :dunno:

Nice choice of words Business Partner IIRC I got burned when I referred to one of my law partners as my partner.:(

Would you buy a car from the guy on the right? :dunno: Would you trust your company to the guy on the left? :dunno: :D

He transferred the plates off the Audi, but I think in NY you get plates right away even if you don't transfer.

So are you going to throw him some detailing tips so he can keep it looking so good?

He's on his own. That's way too much car for me to want to help him with. :D

Nah, I'll help him out... I'm doing the install of his Alpine MP3 changer for him next week. :D

Our X5 is only a few months old, but my wife already wishes (out loud) that she had THAT color.

Sweet looking X5!

LOL, nothing good. He got free keychains, and a bag to carry all his paperwork in. :)

He got a 75% cut on our last contract. :mad: Maybe I'm a little bitter. :eeps:
