However I couldn’t get a picture of the black Espada at the Mercedes repair shop in my neighborhood. Sorry Orlove, I let you down. But I did get to drive this today as my loaner car:

535i manual with only 236,000 miles on it. It was a damn nice car when new, it even has the winter package which means LSD. Also I finally got my car fixed today. It was weird, I scheduled an appointment and they fixed it on the same day for less than 2/3rds of what the dealer wanted.
