I thought I'd better introduce myself. I live in the Pacific NW and find myself a proud and satisfied ower of a 2004 V with 3000 miles on it.

My 83 year old Dad (happy Fathers Day, Dad!!) decided if he was ever going to own a 'vette, he better make his move, so I took his V and found some hard-core BMW guy to take my 330i. Everyone's happy!

Overall, this is a much more satisfying car than the 330i. Shifter and the Logic 7 harman/kardon stereo are better in the BMW, but that is about it. Some of you guys complain about the interior fit and finish, but I think it is every bit as good as the Bimmer. I like the extra room too. And as Joseph Stalin once said, "quantity has a quality all it's own"; there is simply no substitute for the grunt of a small block V-8.

Thanks for everyone's input when I was making my decision. I appreciated all the advice.

It always makes my heart feel good to see another BMW convert. I have always felt they were overrated, but the last one I drove was a 99. But yes, there is nothing quite like an American OHV V8.

And I dont think any of us really have any problem with the fit and finish of the interior. It is the appearance. Especially if it is all black. It's like a cavern. And it just looks cheap; that doesnt mean it is cheap.

Welcome to the club. And if you want some laughs, you can see here my solution to the interior (and see how I got roasted):

Welcome!! I'm giving up on silver; my next V is gonna be black. If your dad can drive his first Vette at 83, I can wash my damned car every day at 50.

And, yeah, lol, your F1's need air.
