It's end of financial year here (30 June) and I guess we're all trying to sort out our tax deductions etc!

There's still life in this forum after all. We must all have ben having too much fun with our cars to drop a note.

HELLO AGGIE. Thanks for waking us up!

E92 is close to 2 months old. Done 3500 kms and still going strong.

AMK - I took the E92 to Tassie. The winding roads up in the North West near Cradle Mountain were the best!!

Luke Androo and I also took our cars up and around the Black Spur in Victoria. That'll easily put the 2000 kms

Enjoy the new ride.

Have you got the M-DCT and M-Drive?

I'm still getting used to the M3 and the M-DCT I was wondering what would be the most responsive M-Drive setting. I find the car isn't as quick off the mark when I need a bit of squirt compared to my chipped 135i but I figure it's probably got to do with my M-Drive settings and my inexperience with the S65.

Excellent. My 997 has 10,000 on the clock so time to trade. 09 Carrera S arrives Monday. Carrara White and still a manual.

Good to hear you guys had a good time on the run up the black spur. Would be a great run in an M3 and good to support the locals up there as they recover.

Maybe it's just the different torque curves? A lot of guys who have driven 335i' s and then moved to the M3 have said that.

Hey Guys,

Glad we're all still around.
Geez Aggie you don't muck around hey. Once you get the new ride post up some photos plz.
Hope all is well over your way Junkie, we've still got to meet up with everyone and get some great photos i reckon. I know the weather isn't the best but hopefully one w/end it might be nice.
My business partner is keen for a run now his M has been fixed after being backed into in a parking lot. A$$holes didnt even leave a note
I see there's a run down geelong way this Sunday, anyone going?

I'm still lurking around here & noticed the same. Maybe I should just speak up!!

Been very busy at home & the only real drive I've been on was the Spurs Run we did with the BMWCCV.

Very much looking forward to seeing your new baby Aggie!!

Ah it speaks!

Saw those photos of the reno. Looks like a lot of heavy lifting but looking good!

Likewise can't wait to see the new baby. Aggie does turn around his toys fairly quickly - I haven't see nthe first one yet. Perhaps I should start a photo log.

Just busy working out how to spend my Ruddies - JK !

Just dodging storms, floods and other biblical catastrophes in sunny Queensland.

BTW guys just expanded the stable to a new X5 to replace the Lexus Rx350 - I'm a hero with the wife again (for 5 minutes anyway).
