My Blog

I started a blog to create a central base for my reviews/posts, pictures, videos, etc. I'll still be posting here and on 6post, but I wanted to get it all linked to one place.

I know I need to get a life...

Haha. You need to find someone else if you're looking for excitement. My friends tell me I'm a 55 year old man stuck in the body of a 23 year old. The excitement and adventure comes in spurts, but 95% of the time I get my kicks from books, medical journals, and school. I think Jonny and Itin know how to have a good time... much more than me anyway.

Hey man. I think it's great that you find your enjoyment out of research and eduction. Most of my friends from College chose other routes to take and ended up going back to doing the same sh*t they did in HS. I am not going to mention what it is they do but I think you get my drift. Nothing good.

BTW, I think the show "Big Bang Theory" is giving auditions

We're just breaking your balls of course!

Your contribution to this board is outstanding and i'm sure your contributions to society and the community will be far beyond that even.

Bravo Zulu, Southern!!! We need more from your generation to be more like you.

As gehmjc said, don't forget to live it up too. You deserve it. All work and no play make Southern a dull boy (Dont take that literal, BTW. It's a quote from "The Shining" . We do love our movie quotes here).

Hahaha. Thank you... for all of that. And I never new that quote was from "The Shining." I guess I have one more to add to the list.

Just trying to fill in the blanks with these cars for others who are in the buying process. It seems like a lot of the videos are very redundant and provide video form of the BMW media packet rather than really showing all of the features of these cars. These machines are too amazing to not be fully understood and appreciated.

BTW thanks for the heads up on the full LED option. I was so set on the 19s I never would've thought it was possible with the M Package.

I couldn't said it better myself Itin. I think it's great that you not only find passion in cars, but realize how important your education is at a young age. If we decide to get a group meet sometime, we'll be sure to make up for any nights you've missed on the weekends
But in all seriousness you by far add the most informative knowledge and I definitely thank you for that!

Now all I need is for it to be July and on my ED/honeymoon sending you guys pictures of beer gardens and the video of my first autobahn experience, and I'll be a happy man!!

Y'all are too kind. Glad to know someone's lookin' at this stuff. I'm very intrigued by the audience statistics for the blog. I'm apparently very popular among Mac users and Saudi Arabians.

Thanks again, guys!

Sure hope not. If it does get that many miles, I hope someone else is dealing with it at that point.

I think that is the best video yet to capture the sound of the M-Sport package exhaust.

I also think you are going to need new tires after all. LOL

I also think that car stands out like a sore thumb there. I did see one Z3, though.

Dude. You are good that this stuff.

Thanks. I'm hoping to do another one on a day that is less windy. I tried to edit out as much as possible, but iMovie on the iPhone has its limitations

Haha. It does, but, in Mobile's defense, most of the footage was not exactly in the nicest parts of town. One of the roads is lined by whore house hotels, one is about 2 miles away from the land of the leprechuns, and the interstate bit connects the two. That's the scenic tour of Mobile lol.

I just added some post-cleaning/conditioning pictures of the door panels that highlight the contrast stitching and the matte finish as an addendum to my post from last night.

In addition to the two new videos I added today I also added an extra tab or two to get things a little better organized.
