Isn't it though .

When I first test-drove mine I couldn't get the smile off my face. When I heard the music at 3500+rpm that sealed it.

I love the colour of yours - blue would be my first choice (if I ever get an e39 M5 it'll be Avus Blue).

Ok, I've been giggling like a school girl since I picked it up.

This thing is ridiculous. Electrically adjustable headrests? Damn...

Two things have been kind of weird though:
1-On the way home, it just kind of died. Twice. Once at a stoplight, the other was just as I pulled into the driveway.

2-The alarm just went off for no good reason.

Alarm doesn't bother me as much as the stalling. I'll get the codes looked at and see what happens. It was fine tonight though. I'm going to chalk it up to getting "driven" for the first time in a long time.

So far so good, automatic tranny isn't bothering me as much as I thought it would.
Oh, did I mention this car is fast?

For the alarm, it has a motion sensor inside that relies on the windows being up. So if the sunroof or windows are open it could go off. It could also be the hood sensor, which is pretty common, it's located right in front of the driver's side cabin filter.

To disable the motion sensor if you want to leave the sunroof or windows down, or someone in the car, just push the lock button a second time, and you will see the red cherry light up with a long pulse to tell you it's disabled.
