6 Series
The BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up.

That's perfect. I am currently between a Heineken (that I just finished) and the 1989 Vega Sicilia Unico that I will be having with a dry-aged Rib Eye for dinner. I have had that Unico breathing for a few hours so it should be smooth as silk (plus the color is great for a wine that age).

You want a detailer who can do Zaino on your new 650i. www.zainostore.com
It's the best wax you can get for your new 6er (I'm sure others will have different opinions).

Good choice. That's a 1.5 hour cigar, if I recall. I still got a batch of Monte2s in my humidor.

I had a wedge of Stilton Blue, some Capricious, and a Brie. Plus I had some chocolates to mix it up. Just finished up and came inside, the wind was picking up. Steak was awesome, wine silky smooth.

Damn. Invite me over to dinner. I'll bring the port next time. Have to watch my weight, though. We Geezers seem to gain it easily.

That's it? No report? No special flavors? Reminds you of earth tones? Nothing?

Speaking of cigars, I need to get a new 303 battery for my hygrometer. Those things are so essential. The humidifying solution did work wonders though through this heat wave then this bone chilling cold. My poor cigars. That also reminds me.... OH HEY NEVERVANA, what's up?
