Sorry man, I was about to say me but you're kinda far. Rockford is kind of close to me, not like a everyday drive thing but it's close. I'm in Schaumburg. Hope you find someone!

No prob! I've seen maybe one or 2 e46's out here one of them a red 325i and she's a professor at ISU. Don't think any of the other driver's are fanatics though.. and as I headed back home I saw a car hitting the highway up north, a very loud & raspy laguna seca m3 with csl trunk and light grey/ almost white looking wheels I used to have my trainings for my employer at Hoffman Estates too

Anyone still in Peoria/Blo-no?

Just bought a 2003 335Ci. First BMW. Will surely have some questions and wouldn't mind seeing some other E46s in the area.
