Shhhh! Don't tell her.

Neither one of us test drove a 128i before we ordered it for European Delivery. I knew it would be an incredible machine and she heeded my advice.....for a change. But in the 4months between ordering, flying over to Europe to drive it, getting it shipped home and then actually taking possession here in the US, my wife's school district started massive layoffs and pay cuts. She didn't think it would be too cool to come tooling into the teacher's lot with a fancy new Bimmer. I convinced her that was a good idea and assumed ownership.
