Cool Brisbane Sighting

I swear I haven't started stalking any M3s yet... but I saw an M3 at the end of Edward St (Cnr of Alice St). Last night... Is anybody going to claim the prize?

Obviously not me but your behaviour is quite normal. Soon you'll be able to get your VIN and you'll start tracking your car as it leaves Germany on it's epic voyage Down Under. That's when the OCD really begins!

Thanks Amk! My VIN.... that will be interesting. Do they give that to you when they have confirmed your allocation or when they begin building?

I'm not exactly sure when they generate the VIN but your dealer should be able to get it for you when it is available. You then go to the WWL (Wallenius Wilhemsen Lines) site - they're the shipping company - enter your VIN and you can see where abouts on the planet your car is. Like I said though, it can get a bit obsessive.

Once BMW allocate the build date, the VIN will be issued to your dealer..

Talk about stalking.. My neighbour picked up a new Black M3 convertible about 4 months ago and he has has driven like 4 times...

Absolutely love it.. Upgraded from a 05/330Ci... Well not really upgraded as the 330Ci was about $12K more than the 135 when I purchased new.

Looking at upgrading to a M3 coupe within the next few months..Fingers crossed..

Cant afford a new M3 so looking around for a used 08 at the moment..

Sweet. Good old gold coast! Brilliant spot. Where is your fitness centre in Sydney? Near the CBD?

Sounds good. No idea where that is, sorry, lol. I tend only to travel to the CBD/North Sydney/Surrey Hills etc etc.

Is your daughter in the fitness industry? Seems like a popular trade/opportunity in this market.

Na...she had more sense..lol..nurse..

Actually the fitness industry will have the highest skilled unemployment..Fitness First pumps out personal trainers like cup cakes out of an oven..They are all teenagers wet behind the ears thinking that they will make a easy living in the fitness industry...NOT...

We never employ any fitness first trainers unless they have at least 5 years practical experience..All they have is theory which is dangerous.
