I picked mine up last night too. I haven't had a chance to play around with it yet, but so far I am happy. Can't wait to unleash the sport plus on a warm summer day.


Here's an obligatory cell phone pic.

Thanks! Nah, don't usually bother with any of that, just keep it clean and only wash by hand (mine or detailers..). And only mods I plan are some plain black license plate frames lol. Probably some M5 reps for summer as well but haven't decided, may stick with the stick 18's all year.

Lol I'm finding the ASS really annoying, cause it catches me by surprise after having driven for an hour or so on a highway. Also really want auto close mirrors, and code the turn indicators to only light up when I signal.

It's hard to explain, but it looks nothing like the pictures I've seen. It's pretty nice when you see it up close in person. But then again, so are most of the BMW metallics.

When else are the turn indicators lighting up for you?

Thank you sir! It's not for everybody, that's for sure. My employees are having a riot with the guy-driving-a-car-with-a-red-interior jokes. But it's soo worth it.

Besides, my last two cars were Black Sapphire on Black, so I needed to spruce things up a bit.

Also, the xDrive doesn't sit nearly as high up as the pictures sometimes make it seem. It looks fine. The fender gaps are OK. It could use a drop, but already has a better stance than the e90 and e46 XI's.

+1. Annoying that the front gap is bigger than the back, but all around not as bad as I expected. I saw one at a dealership with 20" wheels that for some reason was MUCH worse.

It has snuck up on me a couple times as well but overall, I don't mind it. When I know I'll be in stop and go traffic I tend to turn it off but other than that, doesn't bother me most of the time.

Currently the turn signal indicators light up whenever you have the full lights on, and sometimes when you have the DTLs on if the car detects it's dark enough. The only time you get the DTLs without turn signals is during bright daylight. Personally hate the yellow of the turn signals ruining the white of the angel eyes and xenons, and since white LED turn signals are a bitch to get working without errors, rather just code them out.

Bringing this one back. Anyone on Turandot for June delivery? Looks like it just departed from Zeebrugge, Belgium heading for Southampton U.K.
