The threads about the 535i ECU options further convinced me of the GT since we didn't want to shell out the extra cost of a 550i and the subsequently higher fuel costs.

In a good compromise, we have selected a 2010 535i GT that has most of the options the wife wanted and is within our comfortable budget. Now that I have gotten the word budget into this post, I will be focusing on a good ECU and exhaust combination (we haven't sold the G35 yet and already miss its throaty exhaust note).

In summary, thanks all to those on the board that have unknowingly contributed to our decision.

We have to drive the car back 2000 miles (ughhhhh...) but I will post up pics of our "new to us" GT upon our return!
Congratulations! Can't wait to see pictures!
