Initial impressions:
The drive back to Key West provided a few good opportunities to check out the passing power. Torque in the 3000-5000 RPM range is incredible. Feels like you go from 50 mph to 85 almost instantly.

As many have noted, the exhaust sounds amazing.

If you listen to music at all, I highly recommend HK. It sounds really good - nice and crisp. For folks who listen to news (or the exhaust) it wouldn't make much difference.

Satisfied with my options - premium adds a few nice touches I wanted but actually glad to not have the nav screen on the dash.

A/C seems a bit weaker than my 325. Setting it on auto and 70 degrees in the 135 doesn't produce quite as cold a result in the cabin as the same setting on the 325.

Beautiful car buddy. +1 for the 6mt club
