For those of you that were following my story:

Just drove 1000km round trip from Ottawa to Toronto(Oakville) and back to pick up my new ride.

Le mans Blue 135i
H/K premium sound & sirius radio
premium pkg
exec package

Drive back was amazing! Love the new car, a bit sad to see my old one go... really liked that little vw rabbit.

I'm really enjoying the power and all the features.

There are a few little things that I noticed a bit odd or quirky but no major complaints.

Sport seats are awesome!

The only thing I've had problems with is my shift from 1st to 2nd... seems to be very jerky and rough... like the car hesitates or lurches.

from 2nd to 3rd its better, and from 3 to 4 to 5 to 6 is smooth with no issues.

I probably just need to adjust to the new clutch/shifter. Any tips?

Will you be driving it year round?
