Mein Auto: 2013 650i vert ED

It is an amazing drive. I still have to put some more miles on it so I can open it up past 4500 rpm's, but it pulls strong and is wonderful to drive. I can't wait to open it up. I love the ride and the handling as well as the power. I know people love to do the mods, but as of now bone stock seems plenty good for me. Right now, I don't see any reason to change a thing. I am going to enjoy what is left of the good weather this week.

The European delivery part and service was great. I really enjoyed that part. However, the local dealer experience left a bit to be desired.

Thanks to all for the support on this thread and here's hoping that the last car finds it way home soon!
Congrats on finally getting your car, looks great. Im in the same camp as you, I really like to get the car the way I want it and then leave it that way - it's just personal preference (or perhaps my age :-) I did all of my mods in my teens and 20's :-)

The ED experience in Germany is so incredible. It's a shame that the dealer side things seem to fall apart for so many of us.
