1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    2004 BMW X3 3.0i

    Curious... did you cross-shop it with the X5? I understand the X3 has been cannibalising the sales of its larger brethren.

    No, I didn't look at the X5 at all. I figured I'd rather have the best X3 than the worst X5. The best X5 was out of my budget. Also, I bought the 2004 in late October when the 2005 model was already out and in the dealers so I got a really good deal on it. The price was pretty comparable to other SUVs of similar size even though it's a BMW. Like I said in that other thread, I had to get an SUV because of my height and the fact that I find cars to be very uncomfortable. I do a lot of driving so comfort is paramount.

    I drive a '92 BMW 545i. I'm sure everyone knows what that looks like. Sure it's old, but it's really, really fun to drive around back country roads. [​IMG]

    Smart fourtwo! Excellent. Funnily enough I saw one last Satursay if I recall correctly on I-10. They are not for sale in the USA so it must have been a test mule.

    I drive a 2001 silver Madza Millenia.

    I only love it for the BOSE stereo.

    It's even worse --- my passengers feel compelled to wear helmets, too! That was at Buttonwillow, running counterclockwise coming out of the Cotton Corners complex.

    Silver 1998 BMW M3 4-door.

    Even after all these years, it's still thrilling to drive.

    It's nice, but I drive it fairly infrequently with the price of gas as it is, pretty much the occasional weekend drive down PCH etc.
