Olympic gymnastics would be a lot more interesting if each team were given three small beanbags which they could throw at any other competitor at any time during the competition.

Back when I had my E39, I was at the dealer for something, and struck up a conversation with an attractive young woman who had a beautiful new black 540i. She told me this was her second one, the first was hit head-on by a stolen SUV which was being chased by police at the time. Although the Bimmer was totaled, neither her nor her infant daughter (who was in a baby seat in the back) were injured. She credited the car`s structural integrity with saving her life.

My car ticked over 80k miles today. To mark the occasion, I have it a pretty thorough cleaning inside and out. To the uninitiated, I'm sure it could pass for a two year old car. Nice to see a timeless design that holds up so well. I'm hoping to keep it until it hits 250k miles. At the rate I'm going, that'll be in 2032. See ya then...

Right, those russians are insane in traffic. And specially with foreign licence plates i would be always guilty to everything. Not planning to drive there ever with my BMW, even when i'm living very close to border.

There's some collection of russian insanity.
Looks like many of them never had any brain and then they died.

Tried brand new Honda Civic little while ago, it was some campaign from dealer, just try it and you got chance to win one.

Even when mine is 12yrs old that new Honda couldn't be any better.
Maybe my beemer lose little bit in fuel economy, but otherwise it made clear that i won't need new Honda. BMW actually does good job long before others learn how to do it.

Was That You ?

Hey, who was the guy in the dark blue E46 sedan with the angel eyes, roof rack and NY plates that I followed on Rt 78 from PA to Rt 287 ? I just wanted to say, "nice looking car".

BTW...I drove from NJ to Sharpsburg MD and back, and including puttering around on local roads, I averaged 29.9 mpg. Just on the way down, I averaged 30.8mpg at 73 mph. My Dad and his wife, who drove to meet me in their Honda CRV (what a sh!t box) averaged 26, and probably went a lot slower than me. Haha.

Thanks BMW.

A Heartwarming Christmas Story

A couple was Christmas shopping at the mall on Christmas Eve and the mall was packed.

As the wife walked through the mall she was surprised to look up and see her husband was nowhere around.

She was quite upset because they had a lot to do. Because she was so worried, she called him on her mobile

phone to ask him where he was.

In a calm voice, the husband said, "Honey, you remember the jewelry store we went into about 5 years ago

where you fell in love with that diamond necklace that we could not afford and I told you that I would get it

for you one day?"

The wife choked up and started to cry and said, "Yes, I remember that jewelry store."

He said, "Well, I'm in the bar right next to it."
