Because the car is "Technically" my old man's. Its not in my name and we got the car over 3k under KBB price. Down the line if I don't end up doing the swap I will probablly sell it. I will hopefully own an m3 soon also. Thats me being very very hopeful!!! Wish me luck.

I don't think it's worth doing it, unless you are going to keep the car for 10+years.

Ryan Brad and I got together on Saturday. Never actually driven in a m3 before. Its proof that I will never drive anything but a BMW ever again.

I love how everyone wants to meet and hang out with fellow fanatics but no one listens when I say we meet every month on the third Thursday at Zarda's BBQ in Shawnee and every first Saturday of the month at Panera Bread just down the road from Baron. The next Saturday meet is May 1st anytime after 8 am.

PM me if you want more details. The local KC chapter has our own dedicated website at kcbmwclub.com where you can view events and our forum. As it stands right now only members can post but we are working on opening it up to everyone.

Peace,
Perk

Brad, I will start going to stuff when I move back this summer. Gotta fill out the application and stuff still. I think its good that all the Fanatics would like to get together because we have a rather weak showing compared to other states.

True that, compared to other states are stuff is weak but you don't have to be a member to come to the stuff. I wasn't a member when I first started going. Just show up, chill, and then leave.

I feel as if that would be awkward. You said there are a lot of older members. I know 20Ducks was pretty cool, but I just don't know how comfortable I would be showing up to these things without being a member after you told me the old balls guys are gonna give me crap haha. I am really interested in joining though, and I hope you are ready to start that project when I get back from school. Brad, actually do some work today...
