integrating bluetooth into your system? That's one thing I feel is sorely lacking from my car.

yeah that would be nice. Last.fm also has a blackberry app now, I tend to use it more simply because its integrated with the xbox.

New 5er is nice, looks good overall in pics, better than the e60 IMO. I saw a 5gt at the dealer, they look better in person and IMO are nicer then the X6. Basically the 5GT makes more sense and has more interior room than the X6. I cant deny the X6 looks mean as anything, but I sat in one at the auto show last year and rear visibility is basically not there, I would think it is a PITA to drive in traffic and change lanes on a busy interstate... I would take a 5GT over a X6 and I am comparing the two only cause I feel they are so similar in design and proportion... But I am pissed at the rumors that the 5/3 GTs will replace the wagons in the US market, I think the wagons are the most versatile vehicle in the BMW lineup, it will be a shame if they dont give us the option of a wagon, yet sell the x6/5gt which are almost the same vehicle.

Hey Ron they closed our February thread, I assume now that you made a March thread. So I guess we just discuss the final details to feb on here...

I am thinking once we meet at AMC we all head up 64 get off at 199 which will take us right over to Colonial Parkway. Once on that we can just cruise down toward Yorktown stopping at the scenic overlooks for pics and whatnot.

Ohh, and since I've made some good progress on my trunk fabrication I will also be needing a router, which I dont have, with a quarter inch round tip. If anyone has one I can borrow for a little bit that would be awesome or maybe some free time to let me use it.

John I remember you saying something about having one if I remember right?

Second that... Let's see, 96X, FM99 and 106.9. I was gone for 6 months and came back and for some reason had high hopes I'd find something new and good when I hit the scan button. Streaming Pandora w/ aux input ftw!

93.7 is often good. So are 100.3 and 96.5 but I don't think you get them on your side of the water.

This is far better radio than in the Washington, DC area at least.
