Here she is. (rough pics)

The pictures are a little rough due to Raleigh has not had the best weather for what seems since we purchased the X5. I'm hoping soon we will have some better weather, before my next business trip (leave this coming Sunday).

Thanks. When the weather permits. I will take better pics. Want to do a modern urban landscape theme with both cars.

Mein Auto: 11' 35D
Lovely combo! The 35d is so much fun to drive, especially with the 22mpg avg on 425lbs of torque! I find the sweet spot mpg for my 2011 is 60-70mph or 1800-2000 rpms.

Right now (only 1300 miles) we are averaging about 27-30 MPG. We have mostly highways here for our travels.

Very nice. We looked at the 35i, but the Eco credit, holiday credit, plus loyalty credit made the 35d a lot more appealing.
