Mein Auto: 2006 530xi
My dealer emailed -- my 530xi is in!!

Just got the word an hour ago! They say I can pick it up any time Thursday or after. Yeah!!!!

I'd like to get it Thursday, but won't be able to get there till around 5 or so. I'll probably wait till Friday morning because I don't want to go late Thursday and have all of them in a hurry to get done and leave. Plus, if I wait till Friday, I'll have a good part of the day to tool around for a bit.

Very nice. Yours is the first E60 I've seen in Olivine green - I like it. I saw it on a 645ci and thought it looked great.

Heck, my local dealer had my car a week and claimed to be unaware of its arrival. BMWNA had to tell them they had it on their lot. Enjoy the new beast when you get it!

That is the key thing so far, LOL. It's technically a replacement for my wife's car that we sold. Now if I can just pry it away from her on occassion, LOL. Unfortunately, I think I'll be stuck with my LandCruiser.

Thanks for all the kind words!

Just to let you all know, in the pics, my car is sitting on two angles and that's why in some pictures the body seems to sit low or high to the wheel. It's sitting on a downslope runnging away from my house, and just onto another one that runs downhill from the top of the driveway down to the street. My house sits on a hill.
