Drove the 135i Vert

Great power, suspension is firm but still nice and tight. USB audio works really well, this car had idrive but was a 6SM box which really did NOT like. It was very vague...

The car sounds INCREDIBLE!! I couldnt get over the sound - just gorgeous

Seeing as our new house isn't too far from the dealership I ducked over and found a SOLD sign on the house too. I get my car this Thursday

OH Good, I thought you meant manual. Great looking car there Kris.

The reflection on the hood from the house roof at first looked like hood vents, kind of cool .

I thought the auto was only available for orders in the second quarter of 2008.

I've ordered auto cause I'm too lazy to change gears

I drive my 130i in manual then flick back to auto when I've had enough - usually when the traffic starts crawling.

Nice terrace, looks like Annandale or similar. Off street parking is a must with a car like that!

Congratulations!

Hey Kris..did you drive the Coupe as well..
I found the vert sounded better than the coupe..must have different exhaust channelling.
I think that was the same vert I took home yesterday.
What time was your test drive??

Naa no coupe for me to drive

Exhaust is 100% identical, perhaps the coupe is more insulated with the metal roof. Maybe ill just roll the windows down for the aural pleasure

It was 10am from Canterbury, black 135i vert
