Damn that's pretty impressive going from one idea back in 1998 to where you and your brother are now with leatherz, defenetly something to be proud about
and congrats on "LZ5" motorcycle it look's very nice - be careful
was looking at the leatherz site and did not see any pistachio green leather whats the deal that's the best damn color i have seen on a z3 j/k i know how much you hate it
but if you or anyone ever comes across one for sale w/low miles 3.0i and mint condition please let me know, i can't afford it right now but i would try to figure something out

First post as a civilian is another matter.

JonM I suppose next you will...

bring up the old lawyer bashing jokes (before the ban) and Rich's post on "Bathing Black Cats and Cars". Too bad there is no way to look back at the reallllly old stuff.

Did you ever print and frame the "my cat could do better" post? You should have that hanging in your office. I have a nice hand signed one from BMW NA Legal hanging and framed in my office.
