Northern Virginia - Picked up my 335 today

Well I decided to trade in my 2005 Corvette for a 335. The car is home in my garage. I love it so far, but I am a TOTAL newbie to the BMW world. Just looking for a warm welcome!

Oh! I just posted in your other thread. You're in NoVA? You should give your brand new car a good detail!

Shim normally goes there too and may be there too!

last week, there was an M6 you'll like the Bimmer crowd, no sense to be timid, gotta show it off while you're still HOt!...
It think yours will be a timeless classic color

I worked with Dave at Passport. They were very friendly and to be honest pretty easy to haggle with ... I got a few K knocked off the MSRP and on top of that they gave me what I needed out of the vette without TOO much trouble.

I will be removing parts from the Corvette to return it to stock and letting them have it. Then its on to find some parts for the 335, lower it, tint, and wheels

Nice to have finally meet you Juan

... you got one awesome car for sure, glad I was able to see it in person last night at the ECE meet. It doesnt do it justice, seeing it in those photoshoots.

Try to make one of these e90 meets the next time too, we like to have some new e92 showups

We wanted to check out a coral red at passport and they say that yours is the only they've seen/handled thus far. Congrats, once again awesome color/combo/car

Look forward to meeting you at an upcoming meet.

Yeah I grabbed up the first one (DEMO) they got in. I arrived as they were just "unpacking" it.

It was a bit of a hassle convincing them they didnt need a demo for the new 335i ....they could just use the 328i they had....

Congrats on the car. Nice combo. My 335 (e90) should arrive at Passport sometime in the next week. The wait is killing me. I also saw a white e92 in Arlington a couple of days ago on Washington Blvd near East Falls Metro. Any takers.

Congrats again on the 335.

Welcome! Great looking car.

I'm even newer than you are--my car won't be delivered until Oct. 17.

Look forward to seeing you at a meet.
