Talking Wow...what a car

Yesterday I picked up my 03 330ci......and..*****. You all know what it's like, but I just have to share it.

I haven't driven a car like this before, and I'm absolutely in love with it. I have been driving around just for the sake of driving around...I could have slept in it! But the handling, engine, comfort, interior, exterior.....*****, it's perfect! The acceleration takes some getting used to, I was pulling out and "peeled out" instead with a cop watching me. Whoops And the brakes..very solid. I'm quite glad I got this instead of the g35c!

....I'll try to post some pics if anyone's interested..

One, two, three: "New Bimmer in the house! Oh yeah!"

Congratulations, Zachoe, on the 330ci; although they're not as common on the streets of Southern California - they're very, very attractive!

Ah, doubtless you find yourself going back to the garage (or wherever you park) to (a) Make sure it's still there! (b) Realize, with incredulity, "Hey, it's mine!

May no lower resident of the gene pool violate the integrity of your new baby (don't park next to (a) minivans (b) SUV's (c) people with cars that really could use an 'Answer my prayers: steal this car' sticker!

Hey, now, car_for_mom, don't go scaring the new owner yet. He's still in the afterglow of the new car delivery.

Congrats on the new car! I've had my 330i for 2 years and every single time I drive it I get exhilarated.

Thanks guys....I have one question though.

Whenever I put the car in Park and let of the brake, the car lurches (I don't believe it actually moves forward on the pavement) forward, more so than on cars I've previously driven..(I know some degree of lurching is expected)..normal?

Thanks
Zach

I get a small amout of roll back on hills when I take my foot off the brake after putting into P. I think it's pretty normal.

I believe this is normal for all autos ...at least you don't have the ebrake up foot off brake slide onto ebrake cables lurch ... I hate the noise it makes too.
