What would the scary negative be?

I will confess that I am very pleasantly surprised by the responsiveness of the community. I was nervous buying the car not knowing much about it or BMWs, but the friendliness and responsiveness of the community makes me feel much better about the car even if I have to fix things.

Thanks everyone!
