    I'll keep ordering UberX this weekend until a blue M5 (is that correct?) comes up on my phone.

    Uber didn't have the M5 as a vehicle option to choose from, so it'll show up as a blue 535i, lol.

    I'm really curious to see how people react to getting me as a driver. I'm as far away from the typical driver as you can get.

    I asked my local Uber friends if I could be the first UberX driver in Seoul, told her I could give the ladies a choice between M3 and M5 pickups. lol. They got some regulatory problems here and can't do UberX.

    thank you.. FF - yes, opening a larger gastropub in what might be of the the best locations in the city... perhaps country? really excited as I happened upon the space while out for TOJ work one day and curiosity led me to call the 'to let' sign - price sunk in and it was a really good deal, a woman in my social circles had planned for a restaurant there and then a partner (who was going to engineer the food) bailed on her and so she needed out - so I feel like I slid in there pretty smoothly. Now to open it (hopefully within the month)

    As for cars we're driving - gotta say, the M5.... smells fantastic. lol. I missed the smell of old BMW's - when did this change, I wonder? Maybe the E46 is one of the last with this kind of smell? The way older ones had that distinctive horsehair smell from the seats, but all of the old ones definitely smell rich and interesting. Clutch and throw on the tranny feel so long and heavy if trying to drive it back to back with the M3 DCT

    from my bat cave; silver M5's aren't my first choice, but out here, there isn't much choice at all with these things. I am not sure if i will even have it that long, or what, I guess if I do, I might consider wrapping it in gloss graphite metallic or something.

    it came on some 19" Hamann Anniversary, I normally don't go for dished wheels with lips (always been a monoblock fan) - but I can live with these for sure. No Hamann aero, please.
