I would recommend against those carbon fibre window trims sold on eBay. They "stick out" too much because they are thick. They are made by just applying urethane doming material (1mm thick at least) to a graphite material.

Hi everyone, my name is Arnee. It has been 2 hours since I've driven my E55 and it has been 2 weeks since I've burned a Cobra, S4, and a Mustang GT. [:)]

I hope we get some more people on this forum here.
Welcome, I used to live up the hill from you (actually farther up Westborough).

Getting Excited!!

I now drive an 03 E500 that has been a real joy to drive and never been to the dealer once (knock on wood)!! Put in an order for an 04 E55 last june and it was built the 3rd decade of October and as of 7 days ago was waiting for a ship. Hopefully it's on one by now and I will have it by the first week of December (black/charcoal - looks like Arnee's) and also hope it's as trouble free as the E500 has been. Can't wait!! If anyone knows anyone looking for a 6 month old E500 Sport (black/charcoal) in new condition let me know. Thanks, Michael [;)]

Oh I know the feeling...

I took delivery two weeks ago and the moments leading up to it was terrible! But rest assured it was worth it. I have some bad news for you though, the agonizing wait till the 1000 mile break in is just as bad!

Keep us updated!

People seem to clear a path for this car on the freeway. Many a C5 will come flying up from behind unsuspectingly and then slow down as if I were a cop. I actually had an M5 do an abrupt left turn signal at a light to avoid lining up with me at a red light. And then there was that 350Z on Bltwy 8 that probably is still wondering what the hell happened to the car it tried to tailgate.[}:)]

LOL. I love picking on those 350Zs...and it's true about those C5's...so true. LOL they yield to my car around here too.

I *still* have yet to encounter an old Viper, 911TT, or a Z06!
