My wife and I are having a daughter! It is our first, so the anxiety and excitement are at about equal levels right now.

In order to accommodate said daughter, my 135i had to go. Yes, I planned on keeping the car, and the gigantic rear-facing carseat would have just barely fit (I bought one and tried it myself). However, with my future lack of sleep and large diaper-queue, I don’t want to have to deal with the contortions required to get that seat in and out of the car.

So I replaced the 135i with something much more practical with four doors and no shrapnel-spewing airbags. Details soon...

Also, an obituary/review of my 135i, the best car I’ve ever owned, by a large margin.
