    KW V3's made my 335 come alive. Pricing was so fair I can't even remember what it was.

    Having said that, I have a much higher satisfaction level with the OEM springs and dampers on the M5, so I'll...

    Thx,
    The car is being shipped. The 6-8 week wait is a bit tough, but I wouldn't trade the experience in Germany for earlier delivery.

    Have you ever looked forward to something, built it up in your mind, and then been let down or bitterly disappointed? I've done this to myself with movies, trips, gadgets, and yes - even cars....

    +1 for Vegas. It's easy to use, has great features, and good output options.
    Movie Maker is fine for basic editing, but has limited features and limited output formats.
