I've been using this website just about everyday since I purchased this car about a month ago. I haven't posted any pics so I wanted to take the time to do it.

I'm 37 and have never had a vehicle that I'm this excited about. It's been a month and I still find myself coming up with errands to run just so I can have an excuse to go drive. My wife thinks I'm nuts.

Thanks to all of you who have already helped me with my newbie questions. There will be more to come!

I know what you mean about "finding" errands to run. I've been doing the same thing. Lol

Nice 5. I like the wheels. I also like that you can maintain it without a team from NASA helping out. (it's a very easy car to maintain and repair).

Im near the Laurelton Pkwy so I don't always go to francias lewis lol. But the cross island is a totally different animal. It's literally on the other side. I usually chill/meet at the shell gas station right off of the conduit on springfield blvd. I caught myself doing 110 on the cross island past hillside ave lol. Good times

lol i just got back from that short blast. Ive basically made a LAP of queens highways. This is one of my short ones. Obviously these are public highways and i do not promote reckless speeding/driving, but when i do go for a "spirited" drive its usually at night when traffic is light or non existent. and plus there's cops scattered around 50% of the time on top of potholes.
Just go into some action with a 135i. i love these cars
Cross Island to Northern State to Grand Central to Whitestone parkway to Whitestone expressway and back to the Cross Island.
Queensburgring lmao

I know what you mean. I'll pretty much use any excuse to drive mine especially on the weekends. I've only had mine for about 1 month as well so it's still very new and exciting. Hopefully the feeling never wears off!

Haha, I just bought virtually the same car a month ago as well. 2003 530i in Titanium Silver metallic.
I am in love with the Style 42's so much that I just picked some up and can't wait until they come via UPS tommorow!

Congrats on the car, looks sweet!

Haven't found a map yet lol . I've been taking the Laurelton Pkwy to the cross island along the same way you take then take the van wyck to the belt pkwy to get back. It's such a blast. :thumbup:

To the OP: Sorry for "threadjacking". There was always something about the 530's that captured me. I think It would've looked better if the style 42 wheels had more of a lip like the style 5's.
