Ordered a 2005 and took delivery in
Munich on 11 Oct. We spent a week
driving through Germany on and off the
Autobahns and what a Blast! I love the 6
speed and panoramic roof. Up and down
through the Black Forest and along the
Rhine for a truly fun time. The last
instruction from the delivery center was
to keep it under 100 mph and 4500 rpm
which was a challenge but even at that,
I averaged 20+ mpg.
I can't wait for the car to make it from
Munich back across the Atlantic. I need
to some reprogramming of the automatic
adjustments for the seat, mirrors, theft
alarm, lights, etc. but that's secondary
to the pure fun of driving this nice
little piece of German engineering.
6 Speed, Panaoramic Roof, handling.
Looking forward to the X-Drive this
winter in Steamboat Springs CO for the
Automatic Climate Control takes some
getting used to and seems to be more
complicated than required with filters,
recirculation and other modes.
