Thanks for the feedback! I ordered some mats from getbmwparts.com and will pick them up. Prices seem ok.
Got the 550i inspected. Looks all good but needs a battery! Sounds like this is not a DIY job like the S2K or G35.
Audiophool, yes the G's clutch is impossible to drive smoothly. I like the throws and the clutch is good when shifting fast. The S2K's shifter is just amazing. Much better than my buddy's Miata.
Anyway, love the V8's torque and the clutch action is fantastic.
Do you guys recommend purchasing an extended warranty? Sounds like electronics or oil leaks can be pricey. Thanks!
