I would love to make it but I am off for 2 weeks starting the 8th, so doubt I can manage a few more days off.

Is there a party set up for Toronto? Let us know the details as I am sure we would get a decent turnout.

Wow. Saw a bunch of exotics rolling southbound on dvp this evening on the drive home. Crzy paint schemes and gumball vinyls. I thought the exhaust note from my m3 was sweet, but the v10 symphony was pure aural sex.

saw a white e93 m3 parked there on the street last night. The Lambo with the plate "AMG THIS" is hot! The second best looking car there and from the GTA too I think. They veyron was dissappointing, he just pass by the place and didn't park. With all these fools leaning on people's car to take pictures I wouldn't park there either hehe.

Seriously, I would be pissed if I saw people doing that..my gf actually said..I think the owners would be very pissed if they saw what's going on here.

I noticed some of the vinyl/stickers on peoples cars were peeled/ripped off - NOT COOL.

Yes it's a matte black lambo which is pretty nice also. Funny when I took some photos the guy was taking out his gears from the trunk which barely can hold two duffle bags. There's this HUGE suv (don't know what brand it is) that have the plate "KNIGHTXV", can it be that of David Hasslehoff?
