We bought a GT Yesterday, pics attached.

CPO...12K miles, space gray/black, convenience/cold package, backup camera. This thing runs great, way different than our E90...both cars complement one another nicely. The wife is beyond happy with the purchase.

Thanks, Bryan. I love the comfort, luxury and space in it. I keep walking around the cars, in our driveway not believing that I have 2 great vehicles at our disposal. I feel like the proverbial "kid in a candy store" I have to start figuring out the settings for the stereo, the oh-so-thick manual and all else there is to learn....

I too still cant believe that a car that weighs 4700lbs feels this good in the twisties. We are at 5300 miles after a few road trips in 3 months. As of late I have been enjoying driving her in sport mode with some "manual" shifting on the back roads. If the electric fan is still running in the garage after shutting her down and the MPG reads 11.5 then

Congratulations!!! Thanks for posting pictures! The Space Gray/Black looks great!

Don't let the manual scare you - just explore the car. And ask us! Did you see how parts of the manual are available on the iDrive? That helps.

Enjoy your new ride!

I know what you mean. I've been driving the GT in an "E90" mode, meaning mostly in sport mode/manual shifting. It's quite more tossable in this configuration.

Thank you. I gave up on the manual and betting on my knowledge from the 328xi + common sense, so far so good. The next purchase will consist of a jack/jack stand/torque wrench so i can periodically remove/wash the wheels.

Few days ago I came across a post containing audio settings, I'll see if I can apply those as the sound can be better...

I'll be in touch with questions and periodic observations!
