Last warm sunny day before winter storage

Was out at little conservation area in Komoka a couple of days ago and thought the car looked great parked in the shade with the fall colours lit up by the sun behind it. I will put one of the pics as a background on my computer and look forward to bringing it out of hibernation next spring!!!!

Bought the car over the phone from a guy in Edmonton last August after spending 6 months looking and passing on 3 in Toronto and 1 in London(nothing against T.O. just couldn't find the one that met my "needs to have" list)Bought a one way ticket and flew out from London.
Pulled in to the parking lot where the guy had it and as soon as I saw it the goose bumps started to rise. Took it to the bmw dealer for an out of province inspection and 4 hours later was told it was the real deal, 1 owner, Canadian car, no accidents, all service records, 65,000 original kms, never been tracked, all original, only would need new tires and brakes when I get back to Ontario for the safety. Went back to the fellows business and closed the deal with a big smile on my face.
Spent the next three days and nights pinching myself and driving back across Canada to London, Ont.
Had a blast this summer, put 7,000 km on it and took it to Mosport this August for 1 day Trillium Club driving school. What an amazing experience. When I take it for a spin I still can't believe I bought this car. Well, I wonder what next summer will bring. P.S. Would love to hear from others regarding there purchase experience.

Carbon on Cinnamon.
Wasn't sure of the interior colour at first, now I love it.

Heh. I've gotten two of those pesky no front plate tickets this summer. I still refuse to put it on.

Ontario' BS policies can go to hell.

2005 BMW M3, Nice car dude. Had to be one hell of an awesome drive all the way from Edmonton in a great car. I keep thinking i want to buy something from out west or NS just for the fun of driving back.
Plan the Grand Bend trip again. Sorry about missing it last fall. Looking forward to spring!!

Cars coming out of storage soon, I can't wait. I saw my first convertible of the spring with the top down today. I had an oil change at the end of last season so just need to put the battery back in and hopefully she's raring to go.

Put the battery in the car yesterday and it started up right away. Took it out for a short highway spin. Heading out for a short drive Friday afternoon as the weather looks great.
