New member of the Canadian F10 Club

I picked up my 2013 carbon black 535i xDrive less than two weeks ago, and already put 2000kms on it. I love this car! For those curious, it has:
- veneto beige dakota leather
- M sport package
- Executive package (with the auto trunk, enhanced nav, pro Hifi, surround view ...)
- Adaptive Drive (with Dynamic Damping Control and Active Roll Stabilization)
- Head Up Display (HUD)
- heated rear seats

Did I mention I love this car? It now keeps our crimson red Z4 (2010 35i sDrive) company in the driveway. I'm selling my 2000 528i after enjoying it enormously for the past seven years.

Here are some pics. Cheers!

Congrats! I can either code it or set you up to code it yourself. Just PM me.

Sharbot,
If you don't mind me asking, what exactly can you do with coding?

Lots of things. Mostly turning features on that are defaulted off in our jurisdiction (i.e. closing windows via key fob, close trunk via key fob and interior button, fold mirrors on lock, unclock doors when engine turned off (no more double pull), digital speed display, turn signal indicators in HUD, play list in HUD). There are other features that are options that could be turned on providing you have the proper hardware. There are lots of them just search the forums (i.e. http://www.f30post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=696777).

Never mind I read the link, not sure I can do this on my own. Where do you get the OBD cable from?

I'm likely biased, but I do prefer the xDrive badge on the trunk. Cleans up the side view.
