The Iowa/Illinois border is pretty bad for state troopers. I-80 is fun during the day when they have the planes helping out and I am not to fond of the revenue cameras they have put up around Des Moines either.

ha!

Sooo yeah i guess that's a shot at the fact that they're still not M. oh well, insurance break is sweet. But this thread is for zhp peeps, so i guess i should say this:

I bought my first bmw in the beginning of last month. Fourth car I've owned, decided i wanted to wait for something better than a crap ass vw jetta vr6.

2003
Black as Christian Bale's Batman eye shadow
158k....yeah I know.
Bone stock....for now

Greenville SC...where turn signals are an optional extra.

where would a safe/tasteful place to mount a rocket launcher?
People really suck at driving in this town....

Yeah I know, I've driven all over the East coast, lived in Charleston, Atlanta, and Charleston, now back home in Greenville. There are days when its awful in those cites, but its day to day crap crazy u-turn, close cuts. In G-vegas its everyday, 3 wide going 10 below so no one can pass and then you hit every light. No one here knows about the gas pedal. half of them drive with two feet.
take turns at 2-4 mph. depending on tail wind. and the ricers...oh my geeeezus


but yeah if you wanna get into a simpleton argument about who has to deal with the stupidest drivers i think that we can all say that 'at least its not Russia'

No, it's really just my mind being in the gutter, and knowing that many ZHP owners are easily angered if their High Performance Package is belittled.

Thanks. I got the car a month ago. Its fully loaded 6spd from what I can tell (nav, PDC, leather, climate and premium package). I bought it as my winter "beater". My other car is an e39 M5 that stays in the garage for winter.

Yeah well just to live up to your stereotype....I'm angry that I couldn't find an e36 m. But I found an '03 e46 330i. Which is almost the same car. Just less displacement.

I'm kinda glad too cause insurance woulda killed me on the M and I'm doin all the fun stuff on a budget
