So far, I am very pleased and impressed with the way that my dealer and BMW have handled this issue. I thought I'd be in for a hard time.

I also appreciate that most of you think the paddles are a novely. We all have our preferences. As for me, I did once upon a time own a DSG Audi as well and I never once drove it in "D". So it's just me, but I prefer the control of the paddles.

However, things are definitely looking up and I am grateful for all your feedback. This is a great forum.

With all the fuss, I didn't take as many pictures as I normally would of a new car, but I will soon make up for it and post it here for all to enjoy.

Hi Btech, forgot to say welcome on this forum

Good bunch on here with loads of tips and suggestions. Do take the time to read through some of the threads, some cracking conversations on the go.

Oh, and we have plenty of Oz friends on here as well.
