Thanks! No comment on the location - but I'm guessing you'll probably see me around. Its a small city.

Btw - we both have our work cut out for us keeping our black cars clean. 4 days later and my car doesn't look anything like this. Good luck!

I agree 100%. When my CA told me he had to dust my car off before I came down to pick it up even though it was there less than a day, it reminded me of how hard black is to maintain. But as all of us that own black cars say: "When it's clean, there's nothing like it."

I live in Sonoma county and once spring starts, if I wash my car and leave it outside, it will be covered with pollen in an hour!

Finally got it yesterday. Drove a rental up and back to Chico. 11 hours of driving, and 1 hour of paperwork, and I've got her back home



Ugly pic, but its raining and I've got to head to Vegas in the morning.

Hey Aaric! Hallelujah! It seems like it has taken forever. Congrats and enjoy that car. I am on my Treo and can't see the pic you posted. I am sure she is beautiful!

Thanks - the wheels were one of the things that drew me to the 328 over the 335. And after driving it around a bit, the 328 MT has plenty of power...I'd imagine with a 335, it'd be silly, and you'd never need to downshift.

Gonna be a pain to clean I think, but they have a distinctive look. Loving the car. Hope you all are enjoying yours as much.
