See you guys soon!

So I test drove the new 2019 BMW 330i the other day and absolutely fell in love with it. Finally a 3 series that is worthy! I was actually looking at the 530 and 540's but test drove the 330i and what a peppy little engine that was. So needless to say I traded my RLX for a 330i and so far the technology has me floored. So this is definitely not goodbye because I can see myself in a RLX whenever the new models come out. Until then I will still be here checking on things just not as frequent. So see y'all soon!

Congrats and enjoy. Please report back on your driving impressions as compared to the SH.

Do the 2019ís now come with turn signals? In all my years of driving, I donít know if Iíve ever seen a BMW driver use them so Iím assuming itís not standard equipment...

As they say, the difference between a BMW and a porcupine is that a porcupine has their pricks on the outside

JK - youíve always been a very positive contributor to the forum so youíll now give BMW owners a better reputation!

Enjoy your new BMW. 916 miles ago I traded my wife's TLX Adv for a 540i - love the twin power turbo.

LOL....believe me I have heard all that as well. This is my first Bimmer so hoping I don't become like some of those assholes. Just checked my blinkah and you're right it doesn't come with one!!

That 540i is an impressive car! BMW is definitely headed in the right direction.

I'm surprised they didn't detail it before posting pictures online. Outside of an oil change probably, it doesn't appear that they did much, if any, reconditioning to the vehicle before taking pics.

It always surprises me what the dealer will post the trade for initially - hoping to hit a home run (knowing first hand what it was traded in for...). Will be interesting to see how long it sits at that asking price...

Hope you're enjoying your new ride!

Ya if you look at their other used cars its the same thing. Even my new car had what looked like white fuzz from a towel on the headliner. Not the most professional to say the least. They gave me $29K for trade so I wonder if they will bring the price down if it sits on the lot for a long time.

If you haven't done a BMW Ultimate Driving Experience, definitely try to get to one. I just did the one in Jersey, they had a fleet of $60k well equipped 330s for flogging around a closed autocross course, all for free. After a complementary fresh pulled double espresso, I took out a few cones on the first lap, then came in 2nd out of 24 on the final timed lap. Nice cars, enjoy.
