I just got back from selling my old car. I found a buyer for it yesterday and things worked out perfectly by selling it over lunch. I will pick up the new ride at 6pm.

Whatever you do, please don't put-on a wing however small.

Perhaps, drop it a bit, it'll look even better with than tint.

What are your thoughts about BMW taking away the chrome windows outlining (shadowline trim they call it) on the 2009 E92?

No wing...??? Really?!?!!? I was thinking of adding an M3 wing to it
I actually like the shadowline trim, makes it look different from other cars out there (in my opinion).

I finally got my wheel locks on so my 19s are staying

I actually did! Watched the Red Wings / Ducks game last night until midnight, so that took care of sleep.

Interesting. I am not sure I like the shadowline trim (I have yet to see it in person). But in your case, it's perfect with the tint I would say.

There are no better looking after-market rims in my opinion: the BMW designers did an excellent job with the design of your 19s. They look mean and complement the car's design nicely.

Enjoy and welcome to the forums.

You won't want to go home from driving it around. The brake-in period will be grueling but that'll give you time to get used to your car.

Don't forget to post some pictures tonight.

And its nice because the rims are the same color as the car. I don't think they are painted, but it looks quite close! It's almost 6pm there in Dallas! Have FUN!!

I felt your pain as well...and man do I ever want to hurt Pronger.

This is my first new BMW. I have previously had a 1997 316i Compact when I was still in Germany.

Go Red Wings!! They should have made it a goal the last period for the wings So the series is 2-1! There's still hope yet!!

Delivery didn't take much time at all. We inspected the car in the delivery room they have at the dealership and everything looked marvelous. We did all the signing in about 15 minutes and then pulled the car out and our CA did a fine job of explaining features of the car, adjusting some settings as we saw fit and paired my phone up. From that we took some pics (as you can see) and headed off into the sunset.

The car drives like a charm. Still getting a hang with the manual tranny, since I haven't had one for about the last 7 years. I am already happy with it though, though it appears to need a bit of a break in. Shifts from first to second still seem a bit choppy no matter what I do, but I am glad to be back in a manual.

Anyway, here are some pics! Getting it tinted is next on my list for the upcoming week!

The last picture is my wife following me home at a red light. She really needs to get her windshield replaced.

EDIT: By the way, I still did get the smokers package.

Is the sport pkg on the 328 the same suspension on the 335? Does the 328 come with 17" or 18"?

16" are standard, 17" are on the ZSP in both Non- and LCI models.
I believe the suspension is the same, not 100% sure.
