I can relate, since I have a 16 month old girl.

I think I spotted a black e92 M3 w/18's, at the intersection of Preston & Parker.

It may have been pitsy's M3, but I'm not sure.

Whoever it was, you probably didn't get a chance to spot me since I was speeding by. I know you heard me though.

Was riding next to an AW E92 looked stock with forged wheels, both of us in need of a good wash. We were both coming north on Preston from Legacy to the Mall.. I was staring a bit when I realized I was in my Honda...the guy probably thought I was a nut job.
Nice ride..(the last two on his tags were "...08...anyone here?)

Ok, I just spotted a black e92 M3 w/19's, literally 10 minutes ago (taking right from Parker rd, and heading south on Preston, and then taking a left on Ventura).

We took each other on for a mini race.

Your license plate read: G PWR (if I'm not mistaken on the spelling)

I know you're on the forums, so who is it??

I'm sure anyone who noticed our plates got a good laugh. I am doing some interior painting. Getting ready to sell.

How do you tell if someone is painting their house? Did he have paint cans strapped to the roof?

Exchanged waves with a JB E92 w/ 19s. Looked stock, from what I could tell.

We were heading south on Durham. Anyone here?

Tlud: What part of town are you moving to?

xsilvor: I knew he was painting because I followed all the way to the point he pulled into a Sherwin Williams paint store.

DaFool: I was at Studio Movie Grill yesterday. I saw Shutter Island. Good movie!

Maybe it was the paint covered overalls I was wearing that gave it away? J/K

We did. The wife and I checked it out for the first time and saw Shutter Island. We had a lot of fun, so we'll definitely go back.

Haha. Before the answer was posted I was visualizing you driving along with a paint roller sticking out of the window or something...

I haven't heard of this movie grill place but it sounds cool! I went to a business lunch at the Alamo Draft House at West Oaks Mall a few years ago and I imagine this new place is the same concept but tons better.

BCA: You should go check out City Centre, not just for the Studio Movie Grill theater, but for the other restaurants and shopping. It reminds me of Uptown Park, but even nicer, with more friendly parking. I ate at Eddie V's Prime Seafood. It's the best seafood place in Houston. Prices are high, but still a bit cheaper than a prime steakhouse.

City Centre's pretty nice! Straits was an interesting Thai restaurant. RA's always a good place to start off the night (read: pre-drinks) & Monnalisa was nice with the central fireplace (during winter) & outdoor mini-pool (summertime). Hotel Sorella's very affordable yet unique. I haven't tried Eddie V's yet though.

Studio Movie Grill @ Town Center ROCKS!

Coming from Austin i always wondered why Houston didnt have anything like "Alamo Draft House" but SMG is like a nicer version of ADH!

They just dont do all the cool/crazy things ADH does like:
Showing Jaws @ Lake Travis with all the patrons on inner tubes!
Evil Dead Marathons with Bruce Campbell guest speaking between movies! and Rocky Horror sing alongs etc...

BTW @ TLUD to answer your question about where i bought my car i actually had to go to Ft.Worth (Autobauhn BMW) to buy my coupe as when i was looking (Dec 2008) as there were no Sparkling Graphite Coupes in Houston and they were willing to give me 2K more for my 08 335i than my usual dealership here in Houston (Momentum SW).

Spotted a MB E93, stopped in the right westbound lane on Inwood this morning around 11am as I drove past on Maple and waved. Posting here on the off-chance that you're on these forums, as I have a strong suspicion I already know who the owner is (and I'd be really surprised if he read car forums)...hehe

Thanks for the tips! The bank I work for financed the development of City Centre, so I guess I should get out there and see it sometime soon.

I also got my M3 at Autobahn whereas my previous 3 BMWs all came from Momentum SW. I had to go to Autobahn because I needed to find a car in acceptable colors/options that was on the lot to get the 0.9% (the decision to pull the trigger on the M3 was made fairly quickly; otherwise I would have ordered). I also did a bit better on my trade with Autobahn than I had negotiated at a Houston dealer, but I had to work hard for it. Overall, the experience at Autobahn was excellent and I very well may go back there next time.
