It was a rough 2 days of negotiating, 1 dealer tried bait and switch on me and finally found a fully optioned CPO 2008 with Maint.
Can't wipe the smile off my face:biggrin:. Normally I'm a stick shift type guy. Trying to get used to SMG.:noSMG:

This was originally bought from San diego Penske. Anybody from here?

Thanks for the compliments, Any good kits for back up camera? Also do you get M school with CPO car?

Congrats. My second favorite color next to Alpine White :) No School with CPO but you can always sign up for it. I am sure they will like more of your money :)

It takes a few to get used to SMG with the lifting of the foot etc. but once you have it down its really a great experience. I love to row 6 speeds but SMG and the Dual Clutch Variants it's hard to look back. I fully appreciate it more in traffic :)

If you are keeping it stock with the wheels - the lowering with H&R or Eibachs does make a difference (for the better) and spacers will bring out the wheels and give it a better stance. 12.5mm all around works. Some go for 15mm in front and 12 in the rear.

Thanks for all kind words. Anyone know how to add ipod adapter for 2008? I have no cable in the glove compartment, but i have AUX showing up in my Entertainment menu.

If I recall correctly there is a promotion offering M school with CPO models, so you might want to look into that. Though, this is something that should have been negotiated BEFORE you signed.

Congrats either way.

It is in the center console
I have logic7 with no cd changer and in the center console i think there is a whole where the cable would come out from, but its not there. Could it be that logic7 premium package which supposed to come standard w/cd changer was swapped for ipod cable instead? And then someone ripped the cable out?

Is there any way to check by vin number if infact it was equipped or not?
