The Windsormobile has arrived
of joy man, I promise the car Gods never to stray again from the family.
Honestly guys I have forgotten how great this car felt on my test drive back in May. The stick, butter and silk, direct, awesome on the downshifting and damn its hard to keep this thing below 4K rpms. I was going to spend a couple of hours setting things up, phone, music etc, but I said the hell of it and hit some nice roads around Great Falls. One word comes to mind. Orgasmic.
For those that care I didn't take the car out of sport+ and it felt AWESOME. Steering nice and tight and direct, suspension stiff but very comfortable on the road anomalies, and very little if any body lean. But the best part for my money is the manual. I swear if I had that guy from C/D I think that said this manual is average I would clobber him upside the head and tell him to get a job flipping burgers.
Anyway I want to thank everyone here for all the good times and support during the almost 4 months wait. It was so worth it, every damn second of it.
some quick pictures, heavy overcast in DC today plus I took them late afternoon, I just had to drive this thing first. I will be keeping a log and taking notes so that in a few weeks I can give you a run down from an owners perspective.

They created the Lemon law because of this SUV. If I didn't know better I would have thought my wife had a thing with the BMW service manager.
