While I was back up in the bay for a funeral on 12/31. I do like the culture of the Bay Area more than here. Yet I've been here for 16 years. Baffling, when I think about it. I'm just getting old...

You, how's it going?

That's too bad. :/

Me? Very busy with work and not finding enough time for my cars.
We had our annual kickoff Euro meet in Berkeley on Saturday and I played host to a couple of these socal n00bs for the weekend.

I love the M3. I'm replacing the header/cat this week or the next. Frankly, it gets me a lot of the attentions I didn't expect to get, and I'm not sure I want that to influence me. And yes, I am looking at Evos too, simply because I like Japanese cars.

On a related note, when my car was sitting at the dealership I got a manual F30 335 M-Package as a loaner. That thing drove like a Japanese car. Lotsa blind spot areas.
