cannot wait!

I ordered my 228i with manual trans and handling package in early June. It is at the dealer and I hope to pick it up this Thursday.

I could not test drive a manual 228i but ordered it based on a test drive of a manual 128i.

I am reading everything I can find and I believe it will fulfuil my expectations. I have a 2005 325i 5 speed manual with 180hp and I really like it but it has 120k on it and at 68 I am not getting any younger.

I will post my joy or disappointment later.

Mike

Hi Mike,

From one old fart (67) to another, welcome to the fold!

As to your new ride, I seriously doubt you will be disappointed. Like mine, I believe it will put a smile on your face every time you look at it and every time you fire up the engine.

Glad you're here!

Mike must've picked up his new ride yesterday. It would be completely understandable if we don't hear from him... for days! Weeks! Will his new ride ever cool off?! LOL!
