My E90 Broke my Z3!

I just got back from Euro Delivery of my 2006 330I. 6 speed, sports package premium package and Nav. There are some pics on my Blog

I got home and picked up My 97 Z3 and freaked out. I thought it was broken. It felt like some one put molassas in the transmition and I pulled over twice thinking I had a flat tire. There is nothing wrong with it, it's just now that I am used to my E90 I am spoiled rotten. Twice today I tried to put my 5 speed into sixth. crazy.

Speaking of broken, I guess some asshole had dropped some oil on the street I was driving on recently. I didn't see it. So I am sitting at the light and apparently my right rear is in this puddle of oil. When the light turns, I put the car in gear and accelerate. Felt like a drunken fool staggering out of a bar at 4 a.m. Tried it a couple of times and I am like WTF? Thought it was a flat for sure. Nope, it was the oil. Weird how stuff can happen, no matter what it is, to make you think your car is ****ed up or something. Anyway, enjoy your new ride!

Ever wonder why anytime
1) You have extra $$ and want to spend it, something breaks and puts you in the hole once again.
2) You replace something, your other thing gets jealous and break down?

So true. I got a flat tire on the way to the dealer to order my 330. I am sure my car knew where she was going and got jellous. The only other time I have had a flat was the first time I saw an Audi TT convertable. it was like your wife punching you for looking at another girl.

Haha.. kinda off-topic, but speaking of girls, try not to go to Dave & Busters in Arcadia with your wife on the weekends... you will get punched silly!
