First BMW and I'm already addicted

Hey Folks,
Just a quick intro...
Finally decided to get rid of my 1994 Acura Vigor (only had 140K miles) for a 2006 BMW 325 XiT Wagon.
WOW.
Talk about a total difference in auto engineering. Bought it last week with 122K miles..but it drives like new! It's a manual too...which I love! When I told folks I was thinking of getting a station wagon...they all laughed at me, until they saw it. It is clean, sporty and certainly no mom n' pop wagon.

The only thing I'm concerned about was the clutch when shifting from 1st to 2nd. Luckily I ran across a few posts regarding a Clutch-Delay Valve. I ordered it and my dad and I will be putting it in this weekend.

But...glad I found this forum and looking forward to learning.

Nice! I spent over seven months looking for a 328xiT with a 6MT. I found a total of one and the thing was bare bones. I think it had a "smoker's" pkg, WTF that is.

Ended up settling for the AT with the options I wanted in a desirable color. I simply couldn't continue to wait or travel cross country to look at one...Still wish I had 3 pedals though...
