Got pulled over on my test drive!

Hey all, new here obviously, so not sure if this is the correct forum to post this, but funny story so...

It was a cold day in December. I just settled into the cozy confines of my new/used 6er for my test drive with the dealership sales guy. The car felt good, real good! So good in fact, didn't even realize I was doing 55 MPH in a 40 zone. It was a two lane road on both sides so, it's not like I was driving crazy like. Luckily, I always have a couple of detective cards from a friend of mine, so the officer let me go with a warning. But moved the old state trooper sticker over from my other car to the 6er, so I won't have any problems on the highway, but local cops are another story, but I hardly ever speed carelously. I may have a heavy foot sometimes, but I never drive recklessly.

Anyway, been reading the forum for a little while, seems like a great site, look forward to chatting with everyone. Love the 6 series, long been my dream car, finally found one that I could afford with 1 owner and low miles. Haven't driven regularly since I moved to NYC in 09, so excited about it. Missed it, couldn't stay away.

Problem is, after my purchase, I went back to the dealership and took another 2 test drives. A 2012 M6 and an 2009 M6, they are lovely. Too be honest prefer the look of the E63/64 over the new model, but it's a beautiful car too.

I'm hooked! BMW's are like coke. Well, maybe not like that horrible drug, but addictive nonetheless. You think, well, I'll start small and just get a used 6er, next thing you know you're dropping 70k on gorg M6 with only 6k miles on it.

Previously owned a 2000 328ci and honestly, once I got used to it, that car felt like a piece of junk compared to the 6 series, no offensive meant, I loved that car.

btw, how do you add an avatar here? Can't find that option.
