PCD - Now I'm Spoiled!

I don't think I'm ever going to buy a car again that won't allow me to do PCD. I am going to work on my full writeup this weekend (busy day at work today) but I had an incredible experience at the PC and I want to give serious props to all the folks there.

Donnie - You're my new hero, man. I took your advice on the route to Waynesville and I think it took me two hours to wipe the damned silly grin off my face from driving those roads. Definitely better than the Interstate! I didn't need the printout in the end; the iDrive found it as the second alternate route

"Willie" - My delivery specialist. Great, awesome... fantastic woman to chat to. I had a great time and learned a lot about my new toy. The introduction was great, and you showed fantastic patience while I took cellphone pictures I just had to text to my girlfriend.

Jonathan - Shame I didn't get to meet you, man... but next time I'm gonna hunt you down

In summary though... incredible day that I really enjoyed. There wasn't a thing about it that I found disappointing or below expectations.

In the aftermath as hinted above, I took Donnie's recommended route to Waynesville, NC and it was a wonderful introduction to my new car. Because of that, the first 300 miles in my car were spent on winding, mountain roads with incredible views... but more on that when I post more later.

Thanks again to everyone for an incredible day. And of course to the people on this forum who helped answer so many questions through Search and occasionally answered PM'd requests for clarification.

Thanks for the post! Glad you had a great time.

Hopefully I'll get to meet you next time. I had seen your other post the morning you where here and was going to try and track you down at lunch. Unfortunately I had to go offsite and didnt' get a chance to see you.

Enjoy your BMW!
