Bunn, congratulations!

Your new X3 is sweet!

I've heard good things about BMW Endras too.

It's just your winter beater anyways Who needs to go fast in the winter? I actually really like the new Ford trucks, but can't see myself ever needing one.

Im pretty impressed with how responsive the suv is, no wonder they are selling so well.

Nope, no issues at all. Only 1 thing that they already taken care off, the roof trim that popped off.

Congrats on the swap, Ben! Too bad I missed the part-out of the M3 - I wanted a couple of things from your mods. I am planning to do the same thing next winter - replace M3 with X3 M or something similar and a less practical more track-focused upgrade to M3. Hope your leg heals in time for the track season.

Congratulations on your new purchase! I saw your jerez on extended fox at Endras just yesterday. They are asking $57,900. Good deal compared to all the 08's you see marked in the 60's. It would of been a better deal if whoever was buying it bought out your lease.

It was a snowboard injury that never healed properly and agitated by weekly basketball sessions. I told Marco my car was for sale Guess he didn't update you.

Don't worry, I'll be back in something you should enjoy even more by Spring.
