I agree guys. I'm still on my 2nd tank. 1st tank had alot of idling time involved because I was testing stuff out while keeping the car running for the AC. But Right now I'm at half tank and I have done 240 miles!! I'm in line for a good run this time I think. My commute is highway/city combination of 100/day during rush hour, so no cruise control! I cant wait till my break in period is over (told me to do 1200 miles with RPM lower than 3500 and variable speeds) for me to fully push this car to what its capable of doing

Thanks for those photos - I looked at your collection... very nice.

I had a pet named Inca (a dog).

What inspired you to visit such unusual locales in Poland?

Being Polish
I'm obligated to visit my family every 2 years
My wife picked the name In"k"a, long story short color of Inka's fur resembles coffee made out of wheat in old country.... little add
No relationship to great Inca civilization

My family used both spellings, "Inka" and "Inca" - it is good the dog didn't become neurotic about it.

I've visited Warsaw (and Prague, Montreal, and even Vegas too ). Your photos looked very picturesque and brought back many memories.

Apologies for going off topic.

Ruby Black X5

Here's a couple of photos of our new Ruby Black X5 35d. Ruby Black is a very difficult color to photograph; it looks like a metallic black until you get it in direct sunlight, which then lights up the red metallic "sheen" in the paint. The two photos below show a full shot of the car where it looks pretty much black, and then a close-up of the paint in direct sunlight where you can clearly see the red metallic effect.

Ruby Black is a BMW Individual color not normally available in the U.S. We had to get special approval from BMWNA to get this color, but it is simply gorgeous, IMHO.

Your ruby black color reminds me of my tasman green, which looks gray unless the sunlight illuminates the green sheen.

That Ruby Black looks very interesting, you can really see the Ruby flakes stound out up close. First time I've heard or seen that.
