Before ordering my Mineral Gray 340i, I very seriously considered a Mediterranean Blue 340i.

Don't overlook the 2-series. The way I see it, an F22 is more closely related to the E46 and E92 than an F30 (which I look at as an E39).

And today's manuals have taken out a lot of the fun with automated rev matching. :mad:

Perhaps someday, I'll find me another 3-pedal E46 M3 or E9x 335i to play with on weekends.

Very nice. MG with Oyster definitely works and it makes me smile every time I approach my car in the garage.

Also a nice break from the black interiors of my four previous cars.

Congrats! Enjoying my 340i that I also got from Jon (5/21) :bigpimp:



Soon you'll need to set the speed warning chime to 100mph. Too easy to get break 90 in quick little spurts. :)
