Stopping by after 7+ years away.

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Hello Boys,

I was going through some old books and came across Steve Brnikman's book from 2003. It was like a blast in the past and made me think of this forum and the time I spent here.

While I am not sure if many of the same posters/lurkers from 2002-4 are still around - nor do I think that I made a substantive enough contribution to be remembered, I wanted to say hello to anyone who is around from back in the day. Of course, hello to those of you who have joined since 2004.

I haven't been too heavily involved in buying many exciting pieces, I have however become addicted to Loro Piana outerwear. By my figure I have spent enough on Loro Piana coats that I could have bought a BMW 3-series instead.

I am not sure that I will be here daily, but I do plan to stick around and try to catch-up on what has been happening.

Again, hello to friends old and I hope new.

-Andy

Hello. That raises an interesting question. I think I couldn't have afforded more than a Mini Cooper in its most basic version if I had never bought any clothing or shoes.

Maybe even just a lowly Honda Civic.

Good thing you didn't, then you'd have both bad taste and a boring mediocre car (with a popular badge).

Welcome back, Andy. As a new member it is always cool to see some of the older dudes around. It will also be interesting to see if you're sucked into the purchase cycle the second time around... stirpot.gif

Loro Piana outerwear vs BMW 3 series...Hmm...I'll take the coats any day.

Took me a while to get off the Buy/Sell/Trade habit.

Run away. Run away now.

Kidding. Welcome back!

You are funny. My 335xi with stick shift is hardly boring or mediocre. What would you buy instead of that car? Just wondering...

Reminds me of a girl I knew in college who once drunkenly yelled at her dad (via phone) that she, "didn't want a 3 series because 3 series are for poor people."

Luckily there's a 1 series for those on welfare now!

Now that we have them stateside, a Fiat 500.
Other's on my short list are Mazda Mx5 Convertible, and the Honda S2000 Convertible.

Looks like noone from Andrews's time on SF is here to welcome him.

and in regards to the car - its a nice car, and in MI (Where I live) - its essential to have AWD in the winter and the 3-series x-drive works great. In the same price range there are G37x, A4/A5, and slightly cheaper CTS4. Then Mercedes lackluster C300/350 or w/e - i dont care too much about Mercs that low.

I don't see how those compare to a 3-series. While I like those cars for what they are, all of them are in a completely different class from the BMW. I'd never switch to any of those cars, though.

Classic SF. Pick the most irrelevant thing in the OP to derail the thread from the very first reply.

@OP: I don't know how the old day was, but this is quite common.
