Pics...Thanks for the accolades!


Brief summary of purchase and experience to date.

- Deposit made in January
- Production date confirmed between February & March
- Car manufactured May 23rd - #158 - first customer car was #33 in the U.S. - As near as I can determine, mine was the first registered customer car in Canada - there's approximately 6 now
- Stealership gave me no discounts - BMW.CA pricing - They are putting the OE iPod interface in for me free of charge

- Driving experience: Still in break in period, however, car feels like driving a Go-Cart with unlimited power - motor is very flexible wrt RPM range (<5,500 for 1,100 more KM) and seems to behave very well in traffic. This thing has great eye appeal - If I was 20 something again*wiggle* *love* . Visibility to the rear and sides is not as difficult as some have reported due to the wonderful side mirrors - There is however limited rear distance visibility. Suspension is stiff, however it is a sports car. I can't wait to get this thing out to Shannonville!

Dislikes: Driving position relative to the pedals and steering wheel was a little difficult but now worked out. The Clutch CDV valve must go. There's some funky ergonomic things that should have been better thought through and engineered; Drink holders terribly located, BMW assist in a difficult spot to activate, aft storage compartment behind and in-between seats is pretty much useless if your sitting in the car to access, glove box too small for the BMW owners package.

Overall, I'm thrilled with the car!

Drink holders terribly located,

I was going to say that lol. Watch out if you have a passenger and they leave there drink in the holder and decide to get out of the car...nice little mess.


Congrats*th-up* And a very very nice colour combo.

Congrats*th-up* And a very very nice colour combo.Early this morning while getting out of the car to fuel up with Shell V Power, my trailing foot hit the freaking drink holder knocking a 1/2 can of soda all over the dash and floor Do BMW engineers have any ergonomic or functional design skills? Too much focus on just making things go fast imo...

Still loving the car - 1,500km now - M post breakin service will be scheduled for next week - I can't wait to hit the redline!
