Yup, it was still there! But the M3 that was next to it was red if I remember correctly.

Thanks! To be completely honest, I didn't even go in the sex shops. We have enough of those in New York City. And definitely do a Euro Delivery next time!

I really wonder why that specific collection of cars was in Paris. May be for something like Top Gear.
Thanks! No idea ... My first thought was Top Gear but I don't think it was. Probably just 3 rich friends.

How sick was the RS4.0 in real life?
Thank you!

Yea, there were a lot of great cars, especially at The Ring. The 4.0 was nuts! I was just happy to see someone actually using it in the proper way.

Thanks! The Sofitel really was excellent. The staff was very helpful and the room was great.

they all don't, but i think it's standard for 2012.

usually my dealer buys the mats anyway. i'm just curious if it indeed doesn't come with mats with i take delivery in Munich, should i just go ahead get the mats from my dealer first so i can take it with me to Germany.

You paid 67k for your car? You didn't get a discount? Man you were hosed.

No problem! I loved Germany … it seems like a great place to live! It must have been hard to adjust to the driving speeds in the states.

Thank you! One of my good friends used to have an S2000, so I have had some seat-time in one … the Z4 is much more powerful (in 35i and 35is trims), less focused (not as sharp/and not as light), but much easier to live with (much more space (I’m 6’3”), more comfort features, etc.). Take a trip to your local dealer and take one for a spin!

Thanks, Rolf! It was a boys trip for me as well … I don’t think the GF would have been too thrilled with the constant automotive activities.

Thank you! It does! I almost couldn’t believe it … they are Z4 35is specific mats … my X6 did not come with floor mats when I picked it up at the Performance Center last year.

You’re going to have a blast on your Euro Delivery!

Yea, I am not sure how they decide which models get mats and which don’t … 2011 X6 get no mats … 2011 Z4 get mats …. Who knows??

I am assuming he was referring to the MSRP, not the price he paid.

Thanks! I am really happy with the color … it suits the car very well and when paired with the interior really makes the whole car come together.

A Euro Delivery with your son would be a great experience for the both of you … waiting another 5-6 years until he can appreciate it is a good idea!
