///Moment of the day

Hey guys,

I picked up my AW 1M on 10/29, and work has been so busy, I haven't had a chance to really post much. For that matter, I've only put a little over 200ks back and forth to work, but, I have to say, this car puts a smile on my face more than any car I've owned. Which got me to thinking, my top three moments yesterday were (in no order):

1. teaching my daughter the fine art of simulated handbrake turns on her push car in our back yard (she's 16 months old, and leans into the corner when she can feel it coming)
2. Getting out for a run in beautiful spring weather (yes, southern hemi); and
3. Starting up the M, enjoying the cold start symphony, and easing her out of the garage...I love this car!

So, hard to put a price on a car that makes your top three moments in any day! I'll bet you all have favourite ///Moments, and thought it would be fun to share.

Now, a pic, in case you've lost interest

Thanks for the kind words all; yeah I guess looks are in the eye of the beholder, but the bulldog look really appeals to this 1M owner!

Thanks mate - Enjoy the pickup; I have to say I woke up pretty early that morning - like a kid at Christmas! Dealer did a whole unveiling process, so it really was a bit like unwrapping a pretty damn good Christmas present.

Post a few pics once you're behind the wheel!

Excellent, just makes it a little more special for your pick up experience, never have had any of that with all my previous GM purchases lol, must say yours looks real smart with the tints all-round and as you head into summer, perfect timing for some great driving.......

Now fingers crossed we hit no snow fall anytime soon, our dealer is central London, and snow and London just don't mix
