SF intro - temporary, no M3

Hey Guys and Gals,

You probably recongize my name as one of the mainstays on the main parts of the forum. I'm in SF for the next 3 weeks for my wedding.

Just saying hi, can't do a cruise or do meets b/c my fiance will kill me and I'm driving in-law's slick 2001 tan Honda minivan while in town.

I also saw a sweet Fire Orange E90 for the first time in my life on Geary Street today (with Thomas BMW plates).

If you see some guy in a minivan wave at you, then you know it's me.

Welcome to the bay area. 3 weeks is a long time, if you need to escape for a few hours, I'm sure you can find an excuse...

Congrats on the wedding.

Glad you like the blazing M3, if I see a guy in a mini van waving with more then one finger I will be sure to wave back .

And yeah we should totally get paid for promoting Steve Thomas for so long, that dealer plate ends up in a lot of photos ( and doesn't exactly make the local dealers happy which is fine by me) plus the car being Giants color gets even more attention

incidentally, I was at the Giants game last night. Being a Nationals fan, I was quite happy for the Giants and to see the Cards loose.

It's reliable and most Asian people like Lexus more than BMW here. 1/3 the population of SF is Asian... I still see more M3s than IS-F but the IS-F is popular.
