My ED 545i/SMG

Well, I've talked enough about this wonderful european delivery I did during the last week in March so I thought I'd post some pics!

Pic 1 is at the delivery center...first time I layed eyes on the car! The color is titanium grey...more or less anthracite.

Pic 2 is Neuschwanstein castle in Fussen...just a stone's throw from the Austrian border in Southern Germany. We got there late and they had already closed up the castle.

Pic 3 is fun out on the magnificient German autobahns! I am in 6th gear and the car is at the limit of 152 mph. I think that the car may be limited to 240 kph (149 mph) and not 250 kph (155 mph) because the E39 speedometers were always reading higher than actual.

Pic 4 is a ********* in Belgium at some Mitsubishi dealer. Yep, there were 3 of us from 'fest (me, arnolds, TGray5) picking up and terrorizing Europe for a few days!

Pic 5 is the dorp-off at Harms back in Munich. I'm "19" on the right and arnolds is "16" on the left.

Fun, fun, fun....

True, true but I was so pissed about that little oversight. Neither of us converted the 24-hour clock to the correct time...got by both of us!

Heh, cool mang

At this point it will probably be a while. When do the new 3-series coupes come out? At this point it's either that or a 645Ci... :]

Thanks!

So how do I upload an avatar--tried in the controls section, but wouldn't let me. Do I need over 1,700 posts to be eligible??!!

1) I LOVE that color! That's what's next for me.

2) Nice house you have there. It's a little small though. Any room to add on if you need to?
