Hi, my name's James.
I've already met a few of you at last week's M&M meet. Didn't notice this thread some how.

This is my first BMW and the one I've lusted after for generations.

I picked it up in March at this building:


This was my first view of my car after months of waiting, only a few more minutes to go:


It had 0.6km on the trip computer, and 0km on the ODO when I sat in it:


I made it ~150m before stopping to ogle some more:



Family Trip:



My son and I both loved the car from day 1:


Fox Red Interior:



Bahn Storming to the Alps:


- Sorry for the long photo heavy post. I'll trim images if there is any objection to the overly picture heavy intro.

LOL! I was thinking the same thing. That pic needs a caption like "Dad, I'm loving this car; good choice". Nice ride James!

Hey everyone been browsing this forum for a few weeks now. Seems like a very helpful group with some collectively decent knowledge. I am new to the BMW scene but definately not new to the automotive scene.
I was a auto mechanic for 2 years before joining the military as a military vehicle tech (HD) then after 5 years i reased and went back into automotive. First at honda (which made me sick seing all the tuners) but when i got the chance to work as a mechanic at Elite BMW i jumped on it. First week on the job i had an E46 M3 with SMG shifting problems under hard accel. so naturally i took it out for a beat down and well that was all it took, i fell head over heels for the fenoniminal experience that BMW's offer (Brings a whole new understanding of the letter M )

Anyways thats my history, i just recently purchased a winter beater e30 325i but i can leave anything alone so come spring there will be some changes.
I will definately be coming out to some meets and try and meet as many of you guys as possible, so til then

My name's Jared, been lurking here for a lonnnng long time but decided to join up. I had an 02 M3 coupe a few years ago which I sold to go back to school and cause out of warranty maintenance scared me, and now I have an 05 M3 vert. Don't know if it's been spotted around or not, I'm thinking not since it's only had ~5000km's put on this year... sometimes the car rolls on OEM 19's as well

I haven't really met any other bmw enthusiasts, actually I used to be big into subaru's and know a few of the ottawa guys, I haven't been to M&M since I was about 16 (10 years ago) because of all the foolish kids who attract unwanted attention.

Crappy phone pics as I don't have a good camera nor would I be any good at using one, but here's my baby

Also in my stable is my e46 325i which see's daily and winter duty, and recently I just picked up a euro import e34 520i that I plan on bringing back to life as my new project...after the winter
