I got the pen, wish I'd got the USB drive since I'd use that far more often.

But the USB Flash drives costs under $10 for an 8GB or $15 for a 16GB drive while the BMW Pen well over $100!
Still want the USB drive?

I don't really care about cost when free to me. I just always need flash drives. Pens are easy enough to steal from hotels.

On my one year, I got sketch of the prototype of my car. Nice, but a pen would be more practical. Is the ink replaceable?

I forgot about the sketch, I think that I did just toss though and at least the pen I will use. It looks like a decently made pen so I'd assume the ink is replaceable.

I got the sketch at one year. It's in a drawer.

The pen has a repaceable ink cartridge. I usually lose them before I run out of ink!

Personally, I wish BMW would cease with the cheesy gifts and concentrate on providing quality cars that buyers want to drive. Let's see, how about a 535d or a 730d? Also, what about a 120d and a 5 series Touring? A simple email follow up asking about our ownership experience would appeal more to me than a cheap sketch or a pen that few really need or want. Just my 2 cents.

Anyone got the BMW Magazine?

I was also given a 3-year suscription of the BMW Magazine right from day 1.

Buckeye, is that a pen drive? USB thingy? Looks like a key fob? I did not get one of those.

It's a USB drive. It is really solid and has a heavy feel to it.

I hear you. I bit the bullet on my 535i because I realized that the 535d was not looking like a reality anytime soon. If BMW brings over the 535d or 735d I will probably trade my 535i in and get one. I really like my 335d....more than I ever thought I would. The fuel economy is just an added benefit.

Did you consider the 550i at all?
