45 minute compliance

I love it. Just parked it in the garage and picking up the M5 rental. I hope I don't ruin my experience with the m235i.

Nice!

What's an M5 cost to rent over there? And why the rental? Isn't the point of ED to drive your new car?

The tail light is not split. How does the trunk open? Does it move to the rear a bit then up?

45 minute compliance is a sign of the times. Years ago, one had to develop film then mail them to friends or write a newspaper article with pictures. A few people still don't know how to use the internet.

My buddy is the one actually renting it. It's 150 Euro from 5pm to 9am and includes 450km. We will be putting over 1500 miles on my car starting tomorrow, so driving it won't be an issue.

If you look closely you can see the trunk opens around the outer edge of the tail light.

Looks sweet, That was the color combo I originally picked for my 428i but I changed the interior to Oyster.
Have a great time there! I'm off to Europe this weekend myself for my ED.

Have a great trip over and in Italy.
We depart SFO a week after you, but do our delivery 10 minutes before you on Tuesday the 29th.
See you in two weeks.
Have fun

So much for April 15 being the end of winter. It was really dumping snow for 15 minutes on the road from munich to salzburg. At least we made it safely on summer tires. This city is beautiful even though it's a dreary 35 degrees.

It's very different. This car is much easier to drive in the city with the huge amount of low end torque available. Plus, the E93 is almost 700 lbs heavier so this kind of feels like a fast little go cart in comparison. The seats, leather, and some of the finishings were much nicer on the M, but this will hold me over nicely until the LCI M3/M4 comes out in a few years.

Congrats and stay safe!

That was my biggest concern, taking ED of my M235i with perf tires on March 8. edwintertires.com didn't have anything yet to fit the car. Fortunately, we had +15C sunny weather so no rental required!
