Very nice! Has Traverse City dug itself out of the snow yet?

I grew up in East Lansing, and spent many summers as a kid vacationing in TC and Glen Arbor.

Nice - The snow is mostly gone but the weather hasn't turned warm just yet - We're still cold, in the 50s and I wouldn't be surprised if we had another wintery storm.

No, you're not. Yes, there's an M3 specific forum here on Bimmerfest, but you have an E36 M3, and there are plenty of E36 M3 owners here, too. No reason you can't hang out with us.

Nice car!
