its a weird name, how do you pronounce it?

Que-DO-Bah, Q-dobae, Qdobea or maybe just say "the other chipotle place"




just a shadow corners, the OEM corner were just herendously loud I thought

Morning.
Can't wait to see the videos.
First, you'll see my grandma driving skills.
Next, you'll see my shaky hand trying to video Donny.

This was really a fun event. When is the next one?

I saw that FrankoQ had CF pillars.

I will try to post some pics later in the week. Family is in town so things are hectic.

Good eye Juan.
Goodbye fingerprints on the pillars.

Looks like I missed a great time! I'm glad FrankoQ was able to put my slot to good use. Any BMW handouts / freebies that I missed?

I ended up going to see a doc and getting a cortisone shot in my ass as well as some medicine, so I'm on the road to recovery now. I can't believe how much poison ivy sucks. I hadn't gotten it in such a long time, and I got a pretty bad case of it.

Good morning...sorry I missed the event. I was scheduled for Friday afternoon (had other plans for Sunday) but was stuck on the golf course in the rain and missed it. Anyway, looked like fun...and of course, I missed the burritos.

No freebies.
But it was a pleasure to abuse these cars.

Guys, good fun...sorry Heather and I missed Qdoba...had a little fun speaking with the MD Police during our drive of the 550i...no ticket, but a firm scolding that Fedex Field is a 'real road' and although traffic may not be prevelant on non-game days, I should watch my speed....

After the UDE we drove the X5, X3, 650i, 550i...and then after the cop incident, I gave up and went home. My 335i is dirty, dirty from all the road gunk...gonna detail tonight.

Good seeing all of you's guys, until next time.

750's navigation graphics are so smooth, anti-aliasing is excellent.

3-series navigation is a POS in comparison.

sorry to hear that, once again...wishing you a speedy recovery.

To answer your question, no freebies At the E92 event held in SoFla last summer, I got a nice stainless steel coffee travel mug, along with various literature. BMW's never been big in giveaways iirc, Lexus has always been the champ save for last year when they ran out and all we got was a measly compilation CD

But the track time was pretty good, altogether we put in about 12 laps each along with minimum 4 ride-a-long laps. It was a hoot!

That sucks Scott...

I guess I got lucky with my stint behind the 650i, it was definitely practically impossible to stay on the right side of the law with that car I love it!

Iatacs19 was on my tail with the E65 750i and it was amusing to see him try to get the car to misbehave. There were liberal cornering and stopping screeches and burnout attempts to be seen and heard from him

Wow, I'd be interested to see that, because in general, the 3er's nav graphics are better than the competition IMO. For example, Acura has a better nav interface, but worse map graphics.

It looks like the Toyota/Lexus navigation graphics. I didn't have much time to play with the electronics in the 750i, but I noticed that maps were rendered much better, if you are into games at all it was like 8x AA, no jaggies at all.

Did I mention that the 750i had the cooled seats? If those were offered on the 3-series I would pay up to $1000 as a separate option to get them. It's night and day difference.

I didn't get to play with them...did it work well?

I played with them.

Bad location for the controls. you have the warmer and cooler controls
one above the other.
I set mine to "frost my ass" setting.
I was trying to show Starch but I set his to "burn my ass" setting.

but it was nice to get that air going.
I'm sure Iatacs appreciates that after a night of burritos and calamari.
