Something is definitely wrong with it! The steering wheel is on the wrong side! Maybe you should send it back...

Oh haha...they were just previously launched in South Africa (which is primarily right hand drive)

I love the 20" wheels! Congratulations. I'd get Cashmere Silver as well, except that my current car is Platinum Bronze, and I'll need a change.

Do you mind sharing a picture of the engine compartment, and the I6 TT engine?

Will try to do so as soon as I get my hands on it, hoping to pick it up by Friday or Monday. Buying a car in South Africa is quite an annoying process! This I6 engine produces 325 BHP, I'm sure it should atleast do a good job trying to keep up with my 650i as the 7 will hit 100km/h (60mp/h) in 5.9 secs. Not quite sure what they did for the power upgrade from the normal 300 BHP that you usually find in a 335i.

I've been spoilt by living in the US for a few years. I remember that buying a car in Australia took about 3 days - the dealer had to register the car and process the paperwork before you could drive the car away.

Hi Man
Can I ask why you say the above? Do you mean it is a hassle getting it back into Zambia?

It's definately a hassle bringing in a car from SA, mainly because of having to go through borders which sometimes delay your trip almost up to 3 hours...going through paperwork etc. When I bring a car from SA I prefer to drive the over by myself, wouldn't want it in someone else's hands, and there are not many professional truck services that can be trusted for such exports.
