thanks, but, not at all bro, i just talk the loudest.

I'm toying with the idea of a 740 winter beater, but i gotta see how much driving im going to be doing. Do you drive it a lot? Is it worth the extra $ for gas and maintenance over a 3-er daily you think? i totally dont need the room, but wouldn't mind having a bigger car to contrast the Z.

And no one should ever hook me up with women they like, i'm a horrible cad.

Now how hard is it to pop out already cut tree from the ground? It's about 10 inches radius.. I have about five of them in the backyard, and I wanna redo my grass/lawn.

Ivan I actually have a tent on my driveway. The problem is that this is at my parents house where I spend a few nights a week. And between my 645, my 740, my brothers m3 his winter beater, my dads 7 and my moms suv there is a lot of cars that park on the driveway lol. My 7 not currently drive able and it's parked in the only spot on the driveway where I have the tent and it's not affected by the tree. I can park my car under the tent it's just a pain in the ass to move the cars around. And it's not just my car that's getting ruined its all of them. As for the pic I will take one as soon as I'm back at the parents house. Currently at my other house in Richmond hill waiting for the tree to get cut down before I can go back there lol. I stay at my parents place during the week because it's closer to work and mommy still cooks for me lol.
Sweet. So dude are you still at the same place where I saw your old E36 at that car wash? (VP/ELL) I can just imagine how that driveway looks.

That heated steering wheel feels pretty awesome in the winter time! And the car actually drives very well in the winter. Just kinda bulldoses through anything with winter tires. I would say its worth it, you never really appriciate those cars until you own one. my IL took 95 liters to fill up, Used to get about 500km city driving :s. But if you do highway driving its amazing. I have no doubt the car can do about 1000km on a tank on the highway. I used to get to mtl on just over a half a tank. Those V8s are amazing on the highway. They rev very low.

As for the tree, had it pruned for $280, but the guys refused to cut the top off, so I still get some sap. They did take a bunch of it off though, It used to tower over my whole driveway. I think I m just going to remove whats left slowly over the next couple of weeks myself. Want to leave just the 3 big branches going up. Finally got a pic!

Not bad at all because that money would have gone for car wash.
