New member, BMW to BMW

Hi guys. I just joined up today and wanted to start off by saying thanks to all those who post. It made my descision easier when choosing options hearing what some of you had to say.

As the title says, I went from one BMW to another. I just sold my 2000 M Roadster. It was a real looker, Imola Red, Red Top, and Red/Black interior. Basically we didn't get to drive the car enough. It only had 48,000 kms when I let it go. The car was sooo much fun but didn't fit our lifestyle anymore.

So onto the E90! Quick specs are:
325i, Sport Package, Sunroof, Aluminum Trim, 6 sp manual, 35% tint all around.
Saphire Black with Black Leatherette.

I drove a 330 with premium and couldn't stand the seats. The power difference can be felt but coming from an M they both felt slow, refined for sure, but slow. I looked at many E46's in all sorts of configurations but the resale value is so high on these that it did not make sense to buy used. My E90 has 9000km on it, but I know the owner, BMW employee, and he flips them every 6 months. Saved me a bundle.

Anyways, here are some pics, the before and after.

Of course I screwed up and got the picture order reversed, but you get the idea.

And great car, BLK325, most of us agree that the sports seats rock.
