thats right not only a newbie here but just purchased my first bimmer. after driving f350 4x dsl's for years i thought i would get something alot more practical as a daily driver. i had the pleasure of riding in an 03 740 to la and back (peoria,az) and that set the hook.
the 528i i got is pretty sharp and a fun little commuter. but, the stereo....SUX!
the rest is minor little things i can repair myself.
here she is.
