Great forum! I've been reading and doing a bit of posting, now it's time to do the intro.

I bought a 2006 330 Ci ZHP with the 6 sp MT about 2 weeks ago. It's *silber* with black leather. Has the ZPP and CWP options, and now has 3400 miles.

I just love driving this car but like a lot of you guys (probably), I'm paranoid of stones, shopping carts, and all the other urban hazards.

I think I've attached a pic.

Soon or later, you will overcome that. Come on over to the Off Topic and socialize a little.

How's things in Puyallup? I don't recall, but did I tell you I still have relatives in Tacoma? Also a close relative of mine was born in Black Diamond...

Love that part of the country, so green.

This time of year is the most beautiful. Rhodedendrons are at full luster, everything is green, and we have had perfect weather this week.

Didnt know you had relatives here, it truly is a good time for this area.

Excellent, I've only been a few times myself.

Ya, my family originally were tin miners from Cornwall. We emigrated to US in the late 1800's, through Baltimore, on to Montana (copper) and then to Seattle/Tacoma area.

My dad worked in Portland for many years, in logging, shipping etc. I recall one of my relatives sent us some ash from Mt St Helens when it erupted.

See you around the fest...Peace out.

Amazing small world. I bought this car in Bellingham, it originated at Bellevue BMW.

My family were also tin miners from Cornwall. They went to Australia (gold at Bendigo, Clunes, Ballarat), then to the Vancouver BC area, presumably to get away from mining.

I'm still loving this car, just a blast whenever you press the loud pedal, especially when going through a turn on a back country road.
