Mein Auto: From BMWs to Porsches
1st day of Spring

Out running errands this morning with the top down, just loving this day and the good weather, when while at a stop light I hear a female voice behind me yell "I LOVE YOUR BIMMER". I turn my head around and see the woman, an attractive passenger in an SUV driven by another female, hanging half outside her window waiving at me. I tell her thank you, waive back, and drive off smiling and thinking that it doesn't get much better than that!

hahaha... I love spring... drove top down on the freeway yesterday and it wasn't bad.. I did realize the road noise in any convertible is a bit more than any coupe... but still was a good ride...

It's amazingly easy to pass on a situation like that when you love your spouse. The unsolicited compliment was nice affirmation of the detail work that I had done on the car this week.

I'm in the same boat with my spouse... (She let me buy the 6 so I can't complain) and I didn't buy the car for that reason... but it's always fun to get those compliments just the same...

Great isn't it?!! I called my wife from the dealer when I was thinking about getting the M6 and her response was the question, would it make me happy!

I got a little sun burned today - but welcomed - drove from Bethesda to Arlington to Georgetown - put 60 miles on it today.

Curious - thoughts on when to get the 'major' detailing/paint correction? Now ? After they sweep the roads of salt?

Spring is indeed here! Took the car out for a ride out to long island (Got stuck in traffic of course) but I was loving it. Nice warm day and the top down doesn't get any better than this. Perfect weather. Today I am going to pamper her with a nice wash and detailing.
And yes, the compliments were pouring in everytime I glance to the left or right of me, which caused my wife to give me a little stare every time she's just mad because she cannot drive the 6 speed manual and always curse at me that the only reason I got a manual is because I do not want her to drive it. I am planning on giving her some driving lessons on my honda first and see how it goes from there.
