I just picked up my new (to me) '03 Imola Red. I want to thank you all for resposes I have received to my initial questions. I decided against CB car because of the I did not have a good vives about it. When I looked into details, it just had to much oil accumulated on pan underneath the engine and some oil streaks on the undercarrage. I think, it was driven hard.
In contrast, this Imola Red is completely stock, new tires, CPO, I bought 6/100 extended maintenance also, so I am covered until may of 2009. The car is almost pristine, excluding two rock chips on the hood that removed clear finish. But is is a used car.
I drove it home from the dealer with a wide smile on my face, at the speed limit or liitle above and classical music playing. I had no desire to go fast, because I could have past any car at any time..I maybe hit 80 on one little stretch in just no time. This car is a huge difference from my 2004 330Xi.
I am dreaming now, I have a car I always wanted, my wallet is little lighter right now, but so be it.
