My Mineral Grey xDrive 28i

I plan to do a big post with lots of pics later in the week of my whole road trip/vacation/car buying trip to Santa Barbara, but here a couple of my new ride. Just went over 500 miles today and having a ball so far. The car has not disappointed so far

How many miles were on the odometer when you picked it up?

I have the same color. Am considering tinting the windows. Have you considered this or does anyone out there have tinted windows that will share photos. I think darker glass would look really good with Mineral Gray.

I am planning on getting it tinted soon. It's about 300 bucks up here using 3m non-metallic from a shop in Concord. If anyone has any other recommendations for the east bay area I am all ears as that seemed a tad steep to me.

One from yesterday.

If your not a professional Photographer, you should be.

Thanks guys

A professional I am not. I am aware of my own limitations, LoL. I do take photography as a hobby seriously, but it is just that, a hobby. Otherwise I could not afford things like BMWs

I took a whole slew of pics yesterday at various locations around the bridge, and I will do a post of them later this week when they are all processed. I also have a bunch more from Marin county, but I don't want to flood the forum with my pics, so I am trying not to over post stuff

That was shot on a road near the Santa Barbara Botanical Garden. Not being from those parts I don't know the actual street name. I was just driving around the hills above town getting a feel for the car

Here is a pic from closer to home. This is California Hwy 1 (the Pacific Coast Highway), near Stinson Beach.
