It's about as quick as I expected from a stop, but quite a bit faster on highway pulls!

I noticed a couple faults with the car-

-Couldn't get the driver seat to massage.
-Either I suck at figuring out the radio, or one of the driver door speakers is dead.
-BMW logos on wheels and hood are ugly.

It seemed to drive perfectly though. Good, smooth power, good handling, good brakes.

I already tried, believe me! He said that their dealership does absolutely no haggling though. Considering that it's only going to be $8700 after licensing and taxes, I can understand that.

Someone on bimmerboards.com said that it's not a sport package as advertised, can anyone verify?

Ah, I see. The sport does look nicer imo. Doesn't sound like a deal-breaker though, right?

I wouldn't say it's a deal-breaker--I'd say it's a bargaining tool!

yep! Ha, you're right about shiny...I guess it has both the chromeline interior and exterior. It seems to be pretty loaded...any idea where I could find a list of E38 options?
