That's so I can wash my car when they put the watering bans in place over the summer. 'Filled it up last night with this recent storm. 500 gallons should get me about half way to Kat standards.

Don't hate on the 1%. They promise it will trickle down. In 10 years you will be able to buy that 7 series.

Sounds fun. But what's the point of a 7-series if someone else is driving and you're in the back?

Riding in the back of a chauffeur driven 7 Series is a very good way to get around in Manhattan.

I'm pretty sure there wasn't one bottle of ketchup in that whole restaurant.

Did they offer finger bowls? I recall dining in a fine Texas establishment many years ago with some employees and when the finger bowls were placed, one guy drank it dry before I could say anything.

I just Googled "table manners" for 5-star restaurants and don't think I could have survived without closely observing a "pro." Even that doesn't work sometimes. I recall the story of Pres. Cal Coolidge entertaining first-time guests at the White House. He poured coffee into his saucer and all the guests followed suit...as he reached down and gave it to his cat.

I hate eating chicken in restaurants for two reasons. 1) they most likely dry it out, and 2) chicken is properly eaten with your hands - not fork/knife...it drives my dates crazy when I eat with my hands....come on CHICKEN WINGS = hand food. Then again, slap bone marrow in front of me and I am all over that like a dog with it's bone marrow toy

According to my new-found knowledge of table manners in 5-star restaurants, it's acceptable to eat certain foods with your hands. How am I supposed to remember the list of what's acceptable? I don't think you'll find fried chicken or "hot wings" in any establishments listed in the Michelin Guide, but what would I know? Off for a McRib now.

THis posh restaurant in NY (Time warner building) had bone marrow. Definitely a hand eating experience. The smoking hot girl sitting in the table next to mine was aghast - I barked at her. She understood.

So yesterday I hit the big 40,000 just days shy of Black Beauty's 3rd birthday and was going to post that I hope for many more happy miles to come.

Well, I didn't have to wait long before an unhappy stretch of road appeared in my driveway. A turn I had taken time and again to get into the garage ended up causing the car to make strange noises I had not heard before. The garage somehow had moved an inch since I left it the same morning and somehow I found my right bumper rubbing the side of the garage.

Our driveway is a bit narrow and I have to pull in very close next to the retaining wall of the fence but like I said, it's a turn I've taken hundreds of times since I got the car, so I have no idea what happened but somehow I got too close to the siding of the garage. Thankful the brunt of the impact was to the right wheel. The tire has a good lip and protected the wheel enough that there is literally no damage to it. I was able to rub all the paint transfer out with Megs 81.

The bumper took a bit of a scratching, though also minor and a small portion of the fender got scratched too. Nothing was bent out of shape and really, in the greater scheme of things, I'm surprised how little damage was done.

Off to the BMW body shop over lunch for an estimate as well as another independent one I used a long time ago for an accident vehicle. Let's see what they want to do. The bumper is fine and does not need replacing and I'm curious what the price diffidence will be between just fixing the affected area or repainting the whole bumper. Even with frequent washing, waxing, and hand polishing the bumper is showing its age after 40k miles. A repaint would get it back to how it was on day one, which would be kind of nice.

Anyhoo, not a fun thing to happen at 40k miles but it could be worse. This rounds out a bad week for cars in the C-Dub household, as my wife had a minor accident with her Acadia. No damage to her car other than a bent license plate but the PT Cruiser she hit needs a new bumper and tailgate. Hoping for sunnier times ahead!

Happy 40th!

Sorry about the bumper rub. It doesnt look bad and should come right out!

Well that just sux. Not a big deal, like you said... but a mood breaker for sure.

Well... maybe get the whole thing painted... mine could use that sort of work too, actually.

Well, looks like BMW is actually slightly cheaper than the other shop I got a quote from. Interesting. A full strip of the bumper and repaint, paired with the work on the fender will be about $1,000. Another $80 to PDR a small dent in the hood that is bugging me. Interestingly, the non-BMW shop said the hood couldn't be PDRed because it is aluminum...the BMW shop said no such thing.
