Good Day, Bad Day. My Performance Center delivery.

Today I picked up my X3 35i, Deep Sea Blue, Oyster leather seats, Sports Activity Package, Cold Weather Package, HiFi radio, Sat radio, Park control and back up camara. My daughter and I had a great experience at the Performance Delivery Center. Well worth it if you can manage it!

Now for the worst of it. I drove home today after the delivery to Knoxville, Tn. On I-40 in the mountains of NC I ran into a hail storm. It could have been worse but I got about 6 noticable dings from the hail on my 2 hour old vehicle.

Here are some pictures before damage.

Looks good, bad luck with that hailstorm though. Hope that gets taken care of quickly.

And the worst part is you have no one to blame for the damage! Nice looking car, and your daughter certainly looks like she likes it -- hail damage or not!
