You got the right color ;)

The car looks really nice. I think BMW have done a good job with the M version. Were those photos taken at one of the Iron Horse Trail parking lots? It looks a lot like the one near Snoqualmie.

Hi David,

Nice!

Now how about telling us about the driving experience. How does it compare to the S? :ponder:

Is it the "$30,000 mistake"? :LOL:

Torque? :rev:

What kind of results have you had with the laser jammer? :eek1:


Thanks for showing us the pictures! :thumbup:

Congrats on the new car!

These pix were taken at Snoqualmie, but I'm not sure the name of the parking lot he was shooting it at.

Ah, yes, that's the one! The background of picture 9 was strikingly familiar.

You were at one of the parking lots for the Iron Horse Trail State Park. They've taken an old abandoned railroad line, Milwaukee Road I believe (Larry can correct me, I'm sure), and turned it into a 'linear park' for foot and bicycle traffic. Several of these have been showing up across the States. It's a great idea.

Your car looks great - I'm worried the Z4, specifically in M trim, will be taking S owners away from our group :(

It was a really really pretty area. There was a light snow falling but the roads were clear. I'd love to go back sometime and explore some more.
