150kmh & rock steedy

Okay,

I've had the car just over a day. Holy crap this vehicle is impressive. Rock steady over 150kmh, it justs sit down doesn't wobble at all, switches lanes with ease at speed. Amazing agility, the only problem - it makes you want to test it's limits... I'm in love with the I-Drive system, yes it's a tad complex but once you work it out it rocks. I'll never use CD's in the car again the USB stick feature works awesome. The 8 programable function keys are so useable, several for mobile calls, a couple for GPS locations - excellent.
Man even the windscreen sprayers impressed me today.

And the cool factor - silver grill, angel lights, brand power.....head turner alright.

Very happy owner....(I'll post pictures once the weather clears up)

Welcome to the world of BMW and now you never go stright home anymore.
Since i changed to BMW i have drivin twice as much in the same period as in my old car.
The car forces me to keep going. Donno why. Its eating the road and calling for more.
And beware - donīt let it get habits like sleeping in your bed at night.

You should try it at 200, still beautifully poised.

Of course
It's illegal on public roads...
Well not always a track, but privately owned roads, i've got a few friends with rather extended driveways.

I reckon the track's the best place to do it! hehe. More fun and less chance of wiping someone out, and its much more fun too.

You can at least get the chance to really open them up. Excessive speed on public roads is just asking for trouble.

In order to keep everyone happy may I suggest using a motorcyclist's term for speed:

ie: "Today I picked up my new 325 M Sport and managed $1.50 worth of chips."
