Goodbye F80...hello F97

My F80 met an untimely demise. Picked up this glorious F97 today.

Very nice!! Iím guessing there are going to be several folks to lease an F97 before the G80 comes along.

I should have my new X3M Comp by this time next week.

I did 300 miles in it yesterday. I am still digesting the experience and will post more details, but initial impressions:

Fits my use case perfectly. It's significantly more comfortable, both in terms of ride quality and creature comforts. Much quieter inside the cabin. It get's up and straight boogies and the handling and braking simply defy what your brain (and probably physics) tell you are possible. Sits totally flat through the twisties.

Only negative - I feel a dead spot in the steering in around town/lower speed cornering.

It's rare for one color to stand out in such a convincing manner. DGM is one color that does.

Congrats. DGM is a very nice color.
Wait, DGM as Donington Grey Metallic (C28), right? Not Dark Graphite Metallic (A90)?
