So I guess that makes me the elder on this thread! 28. LOL

Went into sign the papers today, and FINALLY got to see my car.

No joke, was weak in the knees when he pulled it around. Maybe thats a little dramatic, but I cant wait to take delivery tomorrow!

Its been a hellava ride fellas. Cheers. I plan to post some pics in the general section in a few days.

Congrats to ALL on their new rides

Congrats! Glad it exceeds your expectations. I'm finding the exact same thing.

If I was in your situation, I wouldn't get any sleep tonight because I'd be too excited!

hey guys, my CA and the guy who went through all of the options with me told me that whole "1500 mile break in" is b.s. and that the car doesnt need to be broken in. What do you guys think about this??

wtf...as i just wrote this my CA just called me, all cars from the Boheme are being recalled, something happened to some of the cars but they dont know exactly which ones. Something was damaged on the suspension. Taking my car back around 12

You had me for a second until I remembered today is April 1. Gmail is trying to get people as well with their "custom time." I was like WTF? Then once I started reading about it, it all made sense.

Gotta watch what you read today.

HAha, April Fools! We would have all been PWNED if that was the case!!!

I plan to break my car in. Not past 4500 RPM for the first 1200 miles. But make sure I hit all the gears. This is what the manual says, and it is what I have done on my other lease cars.

Even though I am not aware of evidence that break-in is "better for the car" over the long run, if I were you, I would still break it in.

Well, I'm planning on breaking it in as well...per the manual's instructions.

Also, by using a little self control, I can also make the most of the "free" tank of gas they gave me. My company pays for some of my mileage but I still feel it.

You'll have to excuse my silence lately. I got a nice suprise and was able to pick up my car yesterday. It's even better than I expected and more than worth the wait. I'm going to get the Sirius installed tomorrow and hopefully will get some pics up soon after that.

Thanks. Even though the forecast was for rain here all week. It's nice and sunny down here and probably around 65 or 70. Keeping my fingers crossed that it stays like this until I leave the office so I can put the top down.

Guys, I LOVE my car! Just picked it up!!!

I really want to share some pictures, and have a snapfish online account. New to sharing pictures though, and dont know how the F#$& to do it!

I tried copying/pasting, properties of pic etc, but could only get the link to show up in the forum. Not the full picture that automatically loads when you open the forum page.

Archangel, can you let me know how you posted the pics in this thread???

Thanks

I uploaded them to imageshack and shrunk them to forum size...mainly because of the board's file size limit. My pics were huge.

I then downloaded those pics again and added them as attachments to my post. That's probably not the easiest way to do it but it worked well enough for me to stick with it.

Under the advanced post, you'll notice a red plus sign above where you enter your text. You can also click on manage attachments further down the page. Either of those will get them up as attachments.

GreenThree, I explained it in your thread, but to mention it here, you're not doing anything wrong. It's just the place that hosts your pictures. The URL isn't valid to embed as a picture because of the way the forum handles images. If you want them to show as pictures you have to host them somewhere else. Else, links work fine.
