How's the individual sound system? Any comments on it? I test drived a 335xi with that installed and sound quality is pretty impressive. How is it in this special edition?

I know this sounds crazy, but I really haven't pushed the new 335xi sound system to see how good it is - I'm in love with the sound of the car, the exhaust, and the sheer joy of driving. Sometimes it's nice having no sound except the car.

Does that seem silly?

+1

Same here. I like the sound of the car too much. I have no idea how loud the stereo can go.

Picked up my Ruby today...its fricken amazing. Love the engine sound, I did crank the audio and it is really really solid, no complaints there.

I am glad I went with the RUBY, it black 80% of the time, and gives you an nice hint of purple/ruby in sunlight.

Love the contrast of the interior as well and the trim is fantastic.

Some things I have liked so far, the folding mirrors is a bonus, didnt think this car hard it and dimming rearview mirror is nice at night. The wheels are great and it doesnt sit low low but its just right for Canadian winters...should be fine with my winter tires.

Congratulations!

I'll have to look out for a Ruby Black when I'm driving around.

Neither crazy nor silly. That's exactly what I do too!

When I buy a car I don't bother with upgraded premium sound systems. To me, a nice performance exhaust is the best sound system in the world. The BMW Performance exhaust fits that bill perfectly.

Strongly considering it. Read a lot of good things about auto-links.ca in another thread. What do you think?

Hey... RUBY BLACK pics, please!

My car is at my dealer right now getting ready for Wed delivery, so I think I'm going to pop over there today and see if I can get a peek...

Ed! Wait for the real delivery - it's worth it.

The Ruby black is amazing and in sunlight it looks stunning. Mines a little dusty after the first week so I'm not going to post pics - it'll get too much critique!

Auto Links already did a group buy with some board members a while back and I *think* they might be willing to give a couple more board members a deal at $260 instead of $300 for some nice ceramic tints. Shall I give them a call and say we have at least two more buyers? Anyone else?

Dealer just called to say they have my car, but BMW forgot to send them the performance kit, so my delivery date might be pushed back. Does it surprise anyone that the performance kit gets installed by the dealer? I assumed these cars were getting tricked out at the factory.

I'm told they are installed at port......so I assume that means Halifax.
