That would be me. I'm the Minnesooootan.

I tell people that after 40 some odd years, I finally figured out I was free to leave.

MN will always be home to me, but I LOVE life in AZ these past 3 years!

49 but I have been in school/trainng(college, grad school, medical school, residency) half my life so I don't feel like I am pushing 50.So many of my 50 year old patients look(and act) like they are 70. I leave for Germany tomorrow to pick up the Z4. Hopefully there won't be huge delays with transport and customs and I can get the car before my 50th birthday in November!

Mein Auto: 2007 Z4 M Coupe
A young 'un

I'm 26 and just bought my first car ever: a used 2007 BMW M Coupe.

Mind you, this is after years of taking the bus and living at home, while working multiple jobs during university. None of it came easy, but now that I'm driving it, my tolerance for public transit sure paid off.

Arizona Z4 - have a great trip to Germany and enjoy the experience! I leave for my first ED on Sept 6 and just received the ED package from BMW (somehow made it more real for me that this was really happening).

Enjoy! (and please take / share pics of your travels)

I would have come inland if I've known at the time. Would have been easy from Florence I think I may have passed some 70 Miles from your house Ah perhaps the next time

This pretty much sums me up. I just barely made the 35 mark age wise

You got that right .... the fun part

Also keep in mind that the last shirt has no pockets so you are doing the right thing

Congratulations on your new car and a fine one it is!

Welcome to the forum !

It is traditional to post a picture within 12 hours of taking delivery.

I love the pic of your car Daron001, if i was ordering another Zed today i'd go for the same as yours. The silver with the 19" V Spokes looks fantastic....much better than the 326's IMO!!

Thanks Lux. It was either titanium silver or space gray when I was ordering my Zed. And I love the wheels (no cracks so far).
