Good Evening Ken,
Battling with the authorities? That sounds familiar! Don't let them wear you down! And enjoy your new Roadster when you get all the paper work sorted!
Having owned a couple of Chevy V8 engined motor cars, I missed the growl of them. I am sure the BMW 4.8 V8 in my new car will be just as good. Only had it a week and have to say still smiling!
