Nothing tops Rennlist for quick and often useless responses. You really should have used M5board. Is it too late to offer advice, or has the deal been done?

I would suggest that if your car has an automatic transmission (I can't remember when the 35i went to DCT) that you change the fluid more often, like at 30K miles, maybe 40kms. It's cheap insurance...

Nice car, Randall! But that's not a beige interior, right? It looks more like Ivory (I think that's what BMW calls it). The pictures show it lighter than the icky beige. GLWS.
