Some pictures before a long winter..

I just took some photos before my car goes in for winter storage. Unfortunately today is my last day to drive the car until spring so I needed a few photos to carry me through the winter.

This car might actually be for sale come spring because I have a funny feeling I may get the itch to buy an M3. She's a 1999 the last & best year of the E36 but she's not officially for sale yet....yet...

I dunno what gravely stuff your talking about.. the salt makes the freezing put lower to combat against black ice. there is some other stuff that they use when it gets really cold.. hmmm I forget the name some compound that works better than salt some people use it on their driveways too.

haha thats funny furious. no offence, you're proper car's mint tho!

so i guess thats why people have stopped being active in this section, because everyone's put their cars away, so without problems there is nothing to talk about
