#FirstWorldProblems ... M5 battery crapped out on me after 2.5 years of use.. delivering 322 CCA (Cold Crank Amps) instead of 850 CCA. Some guy in a hybrid Ford offered to help push me out of the way of the car wash entrance, but when I asked if he could give me a jump start, he said it was a company car and wasn't sure he could use it for jump starting other cars.

So now I have the M5 on the trickle charger for the night, and have to decide whether to take it or the Z3M tomorrow.

Nice meeting you too. The trickle charger brought the battery back to life. A few people commented on the car, so was probably a good choice.

Saw a couple 3-series kids cross the double-yellow on the drive, at which time I did this ...
...Especially when they got stuck behind the next car and didn't gain anything by the hair-brained move.

I went around the section of Mulholland where the cops were giving out tickets for everything. Seemed to work out nicely.

you'll always have kids like that at any drive unfortunately. Glad you went around and avoided any annoyances.

The day after our drive, an M3 crashed on the snake. Wrapped around a tree. Fire Department had to turn the car into a convertible to get the driver out...

Yeah that happens pretty regularly on Muholland. It's unfortunate.

Hey this sounds pretty cool. I looked at your website but the registration doesn't appear to be up yet?

Edit: It's March already isn't it? Haha! I've been stuck in the office too much. Hope to be around for the next one.
