Yes, but the burning question is if it is on the Wilhelmsen Andreadoria?

53. Some kid that sits next to me in home room said my 328i isn't a real sports car. He drives a Honda Civic. What should I say to him?
54. Can I use heal and toe downshifting and engine breaking at the same time?
55. I am trying to learn to heal and toe. Do the heal and toe have to be on the same foot?

Kat,
You've escaped the list for the extremely rare post about "bugs in the tail light." I also note that there have been very few posts about stepping in squirrel *hit in bare feet!

Is it just me, or does that conjure up a slightly repulsive yet somewhat erotic picture for anyone else?
No? I didn't think so. You're all weird.

About 1 more week. She lands at the Baltimore port this Saturday(if my boat doesn't sink). I'm anticipating it gets on a truck by Tuesday or Wednesday and lands on Thursday or Friday.

That's because my issues are 'rare' and I don't obsess (too repetitively)

BTW: The stepping in squirrel *hit with bare feet was posted on the QT. Thanks for exposing my dirty little secret.

Don't fret.

Sooner or later we all have one of those "stepped in what?" moments.

Of course if the HUD wasn't there, an argument could be made that I wouldn't have been distracted. Which was kind of the argument I was originally making about HUDs in the first place.

56. I wasn't looking at what I was doing and got caught by the CHP. Is it my fault, or is it bad design by BMW?

Bad design by BMW - they should have known that people would speed while being distracted by the display and could have (but didn't) designed a non-distracting display.

57. I just got my E90 home and there's this black goo at the door sills that feels like wax. What is it?

58. Please tell me there's a way to get rid of that stupid snowflake and that damned 'gong' that goes off like I don't know it's below 42 degrees.

59. Why exactly do I want my headlights washed every 4th time I clean my windshield?

60. [Post deleted. Time decay.]

61. What is the difference between a sunroof and a moonroof? If they gave me a moonroof, can the dealer install the sunroof instead?

BJ

But while we're back on the subject...The latest Car and Driver pitted the 3'er v. the Cadi ATS. The 3'er really took it on the chin when it came to handling, and a big part of that was poor steering feel and response. Talk about getting hit where it hurts. Apparently the ATS still steers the old fashioned way, and that doesn't include an electric motor hung off the side of the rack.
Yet in the end....C&D preferred the F30.
