I'm not convinced they wouldn't tell me I made the choice they would have made... :iono:

The biggest influence for my purchase came from someone that has more time in a Bimmer than most (if not all) of the people on this board. :wink:

Oh, I can take shit... but you're crazy if you think I'm going to ass-plode this motor! I may have spent $assrape on my Subie last year, but won't be doing that with the Bimmer... especially since a replacement will cost me 4x what it did for my STi!

And I'm hoping the wife likes the 1er enough that in a couple of years she'll just take it over and I'll move on to a daily driver + garage car scenario. :biggrin:

Clayton seems to think that I'll like the car enough that this won't happen... And I'm kind of hoping he's right! :smile:

You don't even need the chip, man... He's so old and slow he'll either snap his wrist on a powershift or forget to shift and be left in the dust. It's a win-win situation.

I'm not worried about the chip - work-arounds are already on the way... Plus, I don't plan on doing the chip right away anyway (keep in mind where my previous modding habits got me).

And I'm anxious to get my uber-quick shifting, 6-speed spanking STEP! :biggrin:
