Talking Compliance Rule Complete - Baby Delivered

Great experience today at the Welt. Ran in to a fellow 'fester who PM'd me after seeing a message I posted earlier today. Our only complaint - we couldn't locate the book! Welt staff was great and experience was world class. We only had a short time to drive the car and I was able to get my Autobahn experience. I feel like I earned my wings even though "traffic" kept me limited to 110 MPH.

A very fun experience and now the long wait until it's home. Oh yea, and what a great car!! I really believe the new 3 is a big step up from the "old" 3. Love the new features. Even the auto stop didn't bug me!

Only funny part was they couldn't get the foot kick trunk release to work. The poor girl and her boss tried and tried. She took it back down to the service tech and it worked perfect. She brought it back up and it didn't work. I wish I was able to Youtube the multiple kick styles trying to get the trunk to pop. We agreed that I'd try later and deal with it in the states if there's a problem. Of course, I forgot to try again when I dropped the car off. Overall funny and not a big deal - may it be the worst problem I ever have!

On to Paris tomorrow (by plane)...

Gorgeous car! It seems like everyone and their mother is picking up an Esotril Blue II F30 (Including me)

Have fun in Paris!

Yeah, I really love the M Sport Package in Estoril Blue II, but then I'm apparently partial to Blue Bimmers! Congrats!

Oh my, it's certainly a beautiful car, but you needed more seat time before sending it home! Oh well, enjoy her when she's stateside....

I agree - the blue is special. I already miss it and am counting the days!!! It was the only Estoril Blue I saw being delivered that morning. Of course, I was a little focused!

You know, I couldn't get ours to work either! Oh wait, it's not an option on our 6er GC.
