Hey Ed, when is your due date, man? Just to whet your appetite: this is absolutely the most satisfying car I have EVER owned. Yes, I have the clunk just like almost everyone, but do not consider it a problem. The fit and finish is very good (bout like my 328). Some think it's a little spartan, but I like it very well. I have gotten used to the xmission now which is a lot notchier than the 328. I drive it sport mode 100% of the time, now. Press the throttle and you are gone. You just have to be carefull that you don't "gone" yourself into the back of another car. Handling is better than my 328. Some understeer that I helped with 40 in the front and 37 in the rears. Still there at low speed, but not bad. The ride is very much firmer than the 328, but falls well within my acceptable range. Tires are OK. They are Conti's and tramline like a motherf**cker. However I understand that all wide profile tires tend to do that and they might last a little longer than the Michelins. Don't know that I would go with the H-K upgrade. If you have a good setup at home, they will disappoint. But I don't listen to the radio much anyway. The engine sings to me.

Oops

Ed: Just read all of your sig and saw that you ordered the H-K and it's on the way. I would be very interested in your initial impressions of your car.

Accident

Well, got to fess up. Had a rear-ender the other night. Both of us were at fault, I think. The beast is now in Mortiz for front end repair. Minimum two weeks before I get it back. Funny how things work out. I was at Scott and Kelly's house feeling sorry about myself when they got the call from the doctor at Harris Methodist about Braden and the hole in his heart. Immediatley put things in a different light. BTW, Braden seems to be doing fine, now. I have been assured that this is a very common trouble with preemies and nearly all of them tolerate the repair very will and go trucking on. Been a rough week in my shop. My lead dispatchers' brother had open heart surgery last Wednesday. He is doing well, also.
