It was a registered letter. And don't think they won't go after BMW if i mysteriously don't get letters. Because it's a Zoll plate I'd bet BMW is in the hook if I don't take care if it.

I just don't want to piss off BMW. I'll bet they are on the hook as the issuers of the zoll plate if I don't pay. And they know how to find me and make my life difficult.

Phoenix Leader

If anybody has a vehicle on the Phoenix Leader, it's making its way through the canal and just passed under the Centennial bridge. It will be on a series of webcams for the next hour or so.
