Thanks kilowong!
The sales consultant at the dealership has a company that came out to tint the windows which was great before I picked up the car. Came out looking awesome.

Thanks Chris!
Options are drivers assist plus, executive package, and 20 inch wheels. My last car was a 2007 Audi S6 V10 that I modified the ECUs and exhaust. The technology difference from that car 07 to this BMW 14 is totally tech overload but GREAT. I work for HARMAN and the Infotainment and HK sound system come from our company. Hope you like them. Mike

Try sport plus, sport plus, sport and tranny setting 3 and manually put the car in 2nd gear and stomp on it from 30mph... After break-in of course

Sounds like a blast and I will try that soon. At 1050 miles right now so by Friday I will hit 1,200 and have the service done. Should be a fun weekend!

So to be clear, drop it to 2nd manually and floor it right at the exact same time. Correct ? Thanks.

In Auto if you floor the throttle pedal, the car will select the optimal gear for acceleration automatically.

In Manual mode, if you floor the throttle and pull the downshift lever simultaneously, it will automatically jump to the best gear for acceleration. This saves you having to downshift several times - one pull on left paddle can get you from 6th to 2nd.

Well the fun of not using D is that you're in the correct gear so its instantaneous vs. waiting for kick down then power... Thats why I said manually do it as opposed to waiting for it to kick down from 5,6,7 to 2nd/3rd

Yes. It always helps for HK to be inspired more by the competition.

Great looking ride! Looks like the plate is a CT plate. Which dealership did you go with?
