Let me know how it goes for you please. I am just a little outside DC and hopefully doing the same thing (ED and then PCD redelivery). I've read good things about Passport BMW as well but since...

Love me some hatchback! Of course, I'm a little GTI biased (current ride) but hatches are just uber practical and I plan on another probably. Mk VII Golf R is just awesome. New Focus RS looks...

If they're in their usual location, then I think around 6,000 feet above sea level. Somewhere in CO.

If it's the first time you use the brakes in a day or given time cycle? ABS self calibration probably. Check with the dealer but I've noticed it on my last 2 cars. Nothing to worry about if so.

BJ, the car looks great. I am pretty much sold on that color combo as well but in 235i flavor since it's only me 90% of the time with Wife the other 10%.

dealer neglected to remove shipping wedges out of my GTI. Went 500 yards out the lot, realized what was going on, turned around and went back. The service adviser looked pretty sheepish :D

My 2010 GTI is awesome in DC. Fast and nimble enough to cut through Beltway traffic. Gets decent mileage. Ridiculously easy to parallel park. The 2015's have rearview cameras although let's face...
