Tell the cops you want a ticket given to the other driver, if he is at fault. I would demand this. It helps with Insurance blame. Also, if there are any witnesses that back your story.

UB EE '90 for me, Happy Holidays!

If you see a snow white 2000 LandCruiser in NJ plates, that'll be us.

I've owned a 2000 528iA, and a 2003 540i6 (current). Are you making this stuff up??

If your wife/gf feels the stick hurts your sex life, get a new one.

No problems with original cap. Never use a wrench, always fist tight. Easy to remove, change oil every 5K or so.

Not too many pics, but seems like a good deal if it checks out. Auto and no cold weather package are negatives to me.
