Test Drive Saturday, any advice?

Hey Guys,

title says it all... anything to look for, any requests? I will be testing a 135i with Sports and Automatic (I think with shifters).

I don't know if I will be able to drive a 135i again before my car arrives in late May (just how many test drives can you ask for???), so I am trying to make sure that I enjoy it as much as I can and that it gives me a good impression of what the car is like... in hopes of calming down my addiction (though we all know it will just get worse).

Don't do it. It makes the wait so much worse.

If u goin to bavaria to test drive, it will be a manual with sports package. One thing i didn't do was turn the DTC off. Ask if you can do this and report back to us how it is. Have fun man!!!

I say go for it! I ws very glad to drive the car. It ws nice to get a sense of how the car wil feel and handle. I ws grinning ear to ear the whole time. MAke sure you throw it into some corners (nothing stupid but get a sense of how it feels) and make sure you try a few hard launches. That car gets of the line very very quick.

You are going to Bavaria, right? When you leave the dealership, they will probably have you head east, then make a U-trun at the first set of lights, to head back towards the henday. So If you want to have fun, turn off the DTC before you leave the lot, in anticipation of that u-turn:biggrin:.
