Looks like you had an awesome report.

By the way, your delivery spot and dropoff location look very similar to mine

Awesome!!!

Epic for sure. That is how you put a PRocede to use in the first 10k miles!!! I would love to do something like this. If you ever need anything feel free to contact me and I will be able to assist you.

Cheers,

Let me see if I understand your post. You picked up a "leased" 335is in Germany, performed a mod on the engine which, under your lease agreement, you are not allowed to do, and drove the vehicle 160 MPH during the break-in period. I would not want to own your car when your lease is up.

I couldn't stop reading it. Great pictures and videos!

If you buy a used car- especially a lease turn-in, this is a chance you take. Most of the people I know don't worry too much about the break-in period, and there's lots of leased cars out there with mods on them. This is why I don't buy used cars.

Good story though.
