New owner of 2010 BMW 335I Convertible

Hey to you all

I am new to this forum and just picked up me new toy last thursday and i tell you it was a busy 7 days

I wanted to find out what you guys think and what should i expect.

Now this is how we have met last week monday.....


Barely could contain my self to wait till last week thursday delivery


When i picked it up wow what a pleasure to drive but i did not enjoy fully the tranny as i got out of manual to auto and paddle shifters so i did talk to my old buddy and On monday had flashed the transmission software with alpina b3 tune and since i have already car in his shop he flashed the ecu with mega-speed.de german software.
Boy i tell you it flyes.
When you are in full auto it is very smooth and once you go to Sport mode its a rocket.

Like i said busy week......
Tuesday was the wheel day





Wednesday was the black grill day and today was the tint day
Sorry gents no pictures yet......

There are two questions i have for you:
Are you aware of any shops in mississauga decently priced to have my mirrors wrapped in gloss black vinyl and interior trim covered with dark black carbon finer film and if yes how much can i expect

and

with regards to drop hard top should i be lubing it up every so often?
is there any maintenance i should be doing.

make it three questions

any other things i could do to the car???

Thx

Yes I did
Car proof
Had the car at a mechanic and took the vin to dealer to check for past problems.
Car had $900 claim on car proof go figure (window replacement ?) maybe
And in past 8 months injectors and high pressure fuel pump replaced.
Dealer and mechanic told me that's a good thing....... I hope they ware right.
It drives mint

As far as the process Joe owner of this dealer sold me in 2005 my 2001 BMW 530i
And he seems to be able reasoned with but the rest is your typical used car store experience.
They did let me take it home when I first test drove the car as my wife and kids ware not with me but then I don't live that far from the store.

Congrats man ! Great looking ride.... Love the black rims on white, and tint will make it look even better... BMW PE would be a nice addition too ! I also love the M3 side skirts on our cars, but before you know it, you will be 10K in with mods !

Again, congrats... Awesome car.

Sekan Skin is in Mississauga and can do wrapping for you.

Grab a nice DP and you'll love the sound your exhaust makes without needing a new muffler, such as the PE

Nice ride - I love convertibles, but remember they're a bitch to keep the interior clean lol. I would white grease any moving part once a year to keep things working well.
