Talking One very happy new E92 335d owner

Took delivery of the 335d this morning, very impressed. I decided to go for an abbreviated handover of all the ProNav/BT/Voice/iPod/iDrive controls, it would have taken forever and a day. It is all fairly intuitive anyway and similar to my previous experience in an E60. The car - very impressed but there is still so much that I haven't 'played with'! Torch present and correct and the 26 mile drive back from dealer Motorway/Town was enjoyable!! A few pics .... I am very content with the colour/trim combo












The wife decided to grab the keys and take it for a spin she prefers the Disco (which I am very happy with!)

Stunning! Congrats.

A great combination all round - the wheels, colour and jade grey leather!

Congratulations Pete!

Lovely car & beautiful colour- I'm sure it'll put a smile on your face for a long time to come!

I had a quick play with the colour, just to show how LMB 'really' looks!

All the best.

If you could get rid of the old red citroen in the background, that would make a fantastic widescreen desktop background.

Viv, you have worked wonders with that pic, it looks so much better. Is that Photoshop?

Cheers Squeeze My oldest son (in the pic) thinks the car is 'awesome' - his words, he clearly has good taste like his Dad!

Is this ok for you, Gordon?

Tried the nice B&W adjustment in CS3 & knocked up the shot below as well.

Viv, you are a genius... nearly

There is now no sign of the Citroen, but something has happened to Peters driveway, it has "wrapped" itself up to the car and up the rear wheel... you see what I mean?

Just to set the record straight, that isn't my driveway, it is a neighbour's. I have never, and will never, own a Citroen ZX The block paving is the road outisde my house.

I was going to blur the background out completely, so you couldn't tell, Gordon, but I didn't!

Anyway, I've now demolished Pete's neighbour's house, planted bushes on the land & sold the cars, ok!

Perfect! although I think you have removed the street light, which we really need to keep for safety and to show off the new car.

Sergei has enough torches to keep the whole of Pete's road lit for a good long time, Gordon- he'll happily provide the street lighting!
