Things are good here. I went on the Ferrari Toy Drive on Saturday with a group from DFW AC. There was an interesting turnout of cars ranging from an F40 to a Cobalt. There are photos here: http://www.dfwautoclub.com/forums/showthread.php?t=7093

My car has been at BMW Midtown for freakin 6 days! I came in for very minor work (so I thought). Squeeking steering and a weak battery. The dealer claimed that it has taken them 4 days to diagnose the problems and that parts had to be overnighted. I certainly hope that the techs did not do some other damage to the car and that they are scrambling to order body panel parts.

I didn't get a Malibu as a loaner though. They gave me a 2011 528i which is pretty sweet ride.

Got my car back last night finally....it took 6 days for them to figure out that the squeeking steering was actually loose plastic trim in the front fender wells. All they did was replace the plastic push-button rivets. I don't know....the squeeking sounds I was hearing sure didn't sound like squeeky plastic.

The following link is to a digital Nativity animation on YouTube that is quite clever in a geeky sort of way: http://www.youtube.com/user/ExcentricPT

Also, for those that like 'merican iron, here's a serious '55 Chevy that's local and reported to be the real deal. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...c=1#vi-content

The M3 is gone and you still have the Datsun, right? I'll agree that even the regular f10's look really good. I haven't driven one yet, but a friend that has, said it felt really big and heavy. The M5 will have a lot of power and no doubt be very tunable (for even more power)..

Any recommendations for a easy, fairly inexpensive tropical vacation destination? I've never had to (gotten to?) do this before, but I've convinced myself the whole travel agent thing is BS.
