Mein Auto: 2007 Z4 3.0si
Talking Hello Bimmerfest! New owner here!

Hey everyone. New owner of a two week old jet black Z4 3.0si here. So far, very happy here. I've used it to carve some of the canyons here in southern California. I forgot how well a car could handle! I'm trying my best to avoid exceeding 5000k RPMs for the break-in, but its tough.

The car is equipped with the sport package, xenon h/l, dark wood trim, and heated seats. I also bought a trunk storage compartment and a mesh wind deflector to make it a bit more comfortable for longer trips. My new Garmin nuvi 370 is awesome too. I think my next purchase will be the new Escort Passport 9500i once I get my finances back in order.

I've been detailing it with the Zaino suite of products. So far I'd give their polishes an 8 out of 10 since the clarity of the shine hasn't been perfect, but I fully admit that it might be user error (applying too thick). I hope to provide an update in the near future.

Looking forward to meeting you all in Santa Barbara in a few weeks - we'll be at the BW Peppertree. See you then!

Brian

There are big problems with the new Escort 9500i and the majority of people are returning them because of less range than the Valentine One and the 8500X50.

http://www.radardetector.net/viewtopic.php?t=22803

They are locking out signals from door openers and the 9500i is not alerting to cops that shoot radar in that area. Owners of the 9500i are also complaining that signals that they lock out are not staying locked out from the day before. They also say that their Sirius/XM radio is cutting out because of the 9500i and its GPS function.

Welcome to the 'Fest! She's a beauty!

P.S.-Go with the V1 and not the 9500.
