My 128i is on the way.

I've been inactive here for the better part of 3 years now. Sometimes stopping in to see whats going on.

But I ordered a 128i yesterday. Black on Black with just 3 options: Heated seats, Ipod/usb, and comfort access.

I now have to wait 60 to 90 days for it to arrive which is fine it will give me plenty of time to sell my current 325i so that I can put more money down.

Nice. Good to have you show yourself around these parts again. I took a close look at a 135i yesterday and really liked what I saw (except for that "back seat"). Be sure to post plenty of pics once you take delivery. Don't just disappear for another three years.

I test drove a 128i automatic before I ordered mine in a manual. It felt and drove awesome.

I'm not real worried about the back seat... I rarely have more than one other person in the car and if it's an issue then we just take a car with more doors, or multiple cars.

The 135i is outside my budget... Well I could most likely swing it but I like to eat more than once or twice a week...

There will be plenty of photos.

While I can't say I will be around all the time nor how long I will stay active this go around, it is good to be back.

Lots and lots and lots of new people and only a few from when I was around. Not that it's a reason to not be around, but it is less familiar than it was. Not to mention I do have a fair amount of stuff going on in general.

Nice choice, and welcome back.

Is Eugene still a nice place? Or has it gone downhill since i visited? (Back in 06)

Thanks Whiteshark.

German-Speed-Demon:
Eugene is an alright place. I doubt its changed much if any since your visit. Truth be told I'd rather be in Portland, much more stuff going on up there all the time that I could be doing. I spent nearly everyweekend of last summer in Portland with friends doing various things.

Did that drive a couple years ago. I had far far too much fun. I recall yelling like a lunatic and laughing like a loon as I flew by people in the passing areas and on curves.

I'm gonna put that on my to do with the new car list.

Yeah especially the Pass run through the Burn, that was amazing. For thosae of you who have never had the pleasure, think Tail of the Dragon, at a 35 degree incline and a posted 25 MPH speed limit, which i neglected to notice, of course.

Yeah, lots of fun in the passes. There was a Mercedes station wagon that was also hauling ass though the pass just ahead of me... German cars rule...

Lots of good roads and drives around Oregon that are all sorts of fun.
