    :(

    Yeah, not quite sure why I didn't just put it on the ground. Even as I was placing it on top of my car, in my head, I was thinking, "should I really be doing this?" but went ahead anyway, lol.

    Lesson learned!



    You are a car salesman's worst nightmare.

    Yeah, that's why I've only done it once. :nodding:

    I can beat that.

    My old audi didn't have a cup holder, so used to place 0,5l plastic bottle in the passenger footwell, where they just rolled around. :rolleyes:

    One day I was stuck in traffic on a hot day, not thinking about that I had driven a bit hard earlier, I decided to open the bottle, which resulted in coke spray on to me, the seats, dash, wheel, windscreen, side window and wing mirror, always nice to be covered in coke in a warm car.

    Your real mistake here was thinking that warm coke would quench your thirst!!

    :uhoh:



    Oh noes!

    In your M3?

    Poor leather.. I'm about to go clean my car's steering wheel with dat zaino cleaner.

    Also, semi-unrelated note, I lol'd today when my car's low gas warning came on.

    It came on when I hit a quarter-tank.

    Do all gas guzzlers do that?

    BTW, I'm definitely going to need to get a radar detector.

    This car is going to get me in trouble because it accelerates so quickly.

    In the meantime, cruise control is your friend.

    being able to get this license plate is the best thing about driving in Texas:

    Greenfrog, what does your vanity plate say? GRNFRG? or M5DBAG? :happy:

    Agreed. I use mine almost constantly or I'll quickly find myself doing 70 in a 40.

    Yup. I drive almost exclusively with cruise control on when I'm on the highway.

    While city driving.. however... :devil:.


    That's the license plate I got!!

    Mine is very tame and looks almost like a regular state-issued number ;).

    Interlagos Blue! Love it!

    As for radar detectors, I'm reading phenomenal reviews of the Escort 9500ix. I'm very close to buying it.

    Anyone have any experience with it?

    i'm gonna see if BMWBJ is available in FL :happy:

    i have the Escort 9500ix. this thing is like Skynet. saves my ass once every 2-3 weeks (this is absolutely not an exaggeration), including this afternoon on Alligator Alley. there's an slightly elevated bridge and the cop was past the bridge, off the swale and hidden in the trees...and flicking his radar gun on and off in very short bursts at the lead cars in clumps of traffic.

    the Escort warned me on my approach to the bridge, no sweat. :slayer:
