Haven't visited Congaree yet. Still traipsing around Pisgah and Smokey Mountain National Parks.
Ahh gotchya but that does bring up a good question of "stock" colored angel eyes 4300K? hmmm

yeah avoid Congaree in the summer, bugs are terrible, after the first frost thru spring is very nice

Yes... the silver one is my son's '04 320. He was working on his subwoofer. And the other one is a '07 328i. It's a nice car but I think the e90s lack chararcter - which is why I wanted a late model e46.

Beater? Looks like a fine example of a well maintained E46 to me!

Is your other car a Bentley or something?

Nah, but someday it will be . I had a true "beater" (P.O.S. actually) in the form of a 94 Oldsmobile Achieva (built in GM's Hades Plant) back in high school. I used to get ragged on by some people at school, even a teacher or two. So I kinda get a kick out of the reaction I get from people when a few years down the road I tell them my "beater" is a Bimmer, and a pretty d*mn good looking one too. Just wish I could take full credit for it's condition, I've only had for just shy of 12 months, the previous 2 owners did a great job in keeping it up.
