Many thanks to Ginger, Arnold, Ray, Nick, and the rest at the Performance Center where I took delivery.

The car is amazing... I'll update this thread soon with driving impressions and the rest...

Note my highway miles from Spartanburg to Atlanta yielded 35.5 mpg!

Beautiful. Congrats. I still find it amazing that BMW continues to mount tires and ignore the tire manufacturer marking for where to place the tire in relation to the valve stem. See pic #4.

Don't worry, same on my car and just about every car I checked at my dealer.

My 2010 E90 SA build tires were mounted properly. Funny, huh?

That's awesome. I guess I didn't realize it was that high and was just expecting to do better than the 19-20 mpg I averaged with my n54 335i. Hoping to get the same but am worried I won't be very fond of Eco Pro. Haha.

As with all the modes, there's a time and a place.... 120 miles on the highway, constant speed, and no traffic makes perfect sense for Eco Pro. Also I was told not to use Cruise Control during the break-in period and Eco Pro kept my speed pretty constant with very little fluctuation of the gas pedal.

Just saw the Gran Turismo 3. Not regretting my decision!

350 miles so far, no issues, rattles, vibrations, or squeaks.

A few more fun pics... and some quick feedback on the experience:

Driving modes: I really appreciate the four cars in one (ECO, Comfort, Sport, Sport+). I'm not doing much with sport until I'm past the break-in period.

Sport Auto: The quick shifts with the paddles are pretty amazing. Coming from my e46 they are crazy fast.

The Tech: I did not get the Nav or HUD. This is my first iDrive and it isn't nearly as bad as I expected (based on the long history of negative reviews). The hardest part to get used to is the radio. Seems overly complex to just scan and choose a station. Why can't I just press one button to forward through presets (or can I and I haven't figured it out)?

The Power: Truly a joy to wield this much power (coming from a 325i). Effortless. In Sport mode expectially, tap the gas just the slightest bit, and it just GOES.

Brakes: I expect some improvement here over time, but out of the gate it feels like I have to make a lot more effort pushing down on the brake pedal to get a good response. I'm rolling further into stops than I expect.

Engine/Exhaust Sound: Sounds good, just not loud enough below 4k RPM.

Wind Noise: Noticeable at highway speeds but not enough to take it to dealer as an issue.

Interior: LOVE my combo... black leather with red stitching, black highlight, brush aluminum trim. Classy and sporty. Wouldn't change a thing.

Steering Wheel: Feels great when my hands are on the "10 and 2" lumps. This has forced me to drive more with my hands in the "right" steering position. People rave about the M-Sport wheel but I'm very happy.
