    Sounds like you will be driving the car a lot (from your other post) - welcome to the group! Nice to have another person on the board who will put miles on the car and truly enjoy it!

    I live outside of Seattle, and am always looking for driving buddies - driving with a swarm of Z8s is way more fun than alone.

    Went for a drive around Vancouver after picking 'er up. Still have a smile from ear to ear. The sound of that engine... Wow!

    tom, pm me with your details and I will let you know next time I am down there, and you can let me know if you come up here.

    I noticed in the evaluation of your car you are missing the "book". If you haven't already done so, you will definitely want to contact Bill Stewart at BMW NA about him providing you with one from his small inventory of books which for whatever reasons were not provided to the original purchasers. Bill is a great guy and will even try to match the leather wrap of the book he sends you to the interior color of your car. I am away from my home computer so I don't have his email address, but you can find it in the archived discussion of the "book"

    Glad to hear you are enjoying your new toy.

    Best,

    Bill

    Bill,

    Thanks for the suggestion - I actually phoned him after getting the info off of one of the threads and he called me back almost instantly, but I missed the call. I will definitely follow up with him after the long weekend.

    Cheers,

    Patrick

    Bill is awesome, and the fact that BMW have someone so good at customer care really does say a huge amount about the brand.

    He seems super passionate about this car... I could tell that from just the message he left!
