Order In! Thanks for the help on options.

On Friday, 9 Nov. (which was the 18th. anniversary of the Berlin wall coming down) I placed my ED order for a 2008 335i convertable with Jorn Esser at Passport BMW. Thanks to the expert help from people on this website, I think I got the option package right.

1. Instead of the 328, I bought the 335 which after the test drive was a no-brainer.
2. My wife agreed with "candstick" that she is sick of wires dangling from the windshield and so we bought the Nav package instead of using our hand held or windshied mounted Garmin GPS.
3. Premium package, comfort access, i pod, sport, paddle shift, PDC.
4. Deep Green with Saddle brown leather.

Jorn made the purchase a no-hassle fun thing and I got the usual good deal.

Thanks to all on this forum for the help/advice on selecting the options.

The anticipation begins

Thanks for reporting back. You made good choices. Apart from the colors, looks like out cars are identical twins.

You are right. Maybe I should have taken the hint from the German Government and ordered the car on October 3, the day of German Unity.
