The very first. It's funny that Beewang was the first non-admin member, but his post count total is 3.

I'm proud to say I registered only 1 day after opening!

Well... I called BMWNA, a very unenthusiastic rep answered the phone, pretty told me that the car is in port since 12/7 and that they have no idea it will clear custom and move to VPC.

I asked her why its taking so long, her reply was ".. this is NOT long, and this is normal..."

When I aske her when will it make it to VPC, she says that she has no idea, and quickly dumped my phone call. Later, it dawned on me that:
1) This is NOT normal!! I've done this more than a few times (as you know ) and This is real f*cking long!! in fact, i'd say this is the longest it has ever taken!!

so screw it!! I said to my self, I am gonna call the VPC. unfortunately, I called them after 4:00pm, so I will call them tomorrow.

will keep you posted

Hey Bee...

No need to call the VPC (I'll do it for you).

Besides, they might think that I gave you the number...



(Anyone else reading this - I did not give Bee the number!)

Based on every communication that I've had with
them lately, I don't expect to see your cars this
week...

I'll do my best, though...

Jon,
the VPC number is on the website of Port Hueneme they can't blame you for that!!

Okay brotha, it' be nice to get the cars before x-mas, but hey... if not, *****t happens, we'll just wait 'till you're back from vacation.

SONET: yeah!! hear ya!!busy season sucks!

P.S. Jon, I think Weekend of 3/28/2003 would be a GREAT weekend to have bimmerfest, as I will be spending the weekend there watching my favorite baseball team playing against UCSB Gauchos

Those guys s*u*c*k (no, not the Gauchos)!!!!

(j/k)



Figure that Bimmerfest 2003 will be at the end of April.

With "El Nino" now at full force, March will have too high
a likelihood of rain....

Remember 2001???

Oh, that's right, you didn't make it that year...

This was the scene a couple of hours prior to showtime...



I ain't going through that again...
