It's all relative. There's a 5,700ft tall "hill" right outside my window here in OC. It feels weird for a native Californian to be somewhere where there aren't mountains in your immediate view. ...

you would LOVE California, then. Norcal has some great trails but from what I understand there's more "hiker hostility" and trail sharing issues up there than down here. LOTS of places to ride in...

I visited Austin for the first time about 6 months ago. My first impression was... "I thought they called his 'Hill Country'? Where are the hills? It's as flat as far as the eye can see.."

My car is about the same age and mileage. Carmax offered me $12K for it a couple months ago.

I've been carrying mountain bikes in the back of my E90 sedan (with front wheel removed and rear seatbacks folded) for years. It swallows up my 29er (Santa Cruz Tallboy) with ease.

I have a 6AT E90 335i. I don't think it's that great of a transmission. The 2-3 shift can be a bit jerky. It isn't nearly as well mannered as the 5AT in my 4Runner which is a bit embarrassing. ...
