nothing wrong with having fun once in a while! you've got a nice history of rides. i highly recommend a sweet set of winter tires if you're going to DD your E92. stay tuned for bimmerpost.com meets on the west and east ends of MI.

here's a link to previous meets and shoots: https://picasaweb.google.com/jspecdan

I traveled to saline, mi. Went and looked at it on Saturday and bought it last Thursday. Had 66,600 miles on it, or a little over that. It was probably worth $22,000 but she threw in nearly new snow tires so I didn't mind.

And I'm from the el area. I am a car show kid, took my previous cars to shows and used to drive my second to last car only in the summer and when it didn't rain. Now I plan to DD this car and I love driving it. I am also on 600rr.net and have met with people on there in mi but I'm excited to get into the BMW game and meet some people who share the same passion I do for cars.

But I'll post some pics of my previous cars if you guys don't mind, and I'm only 22, so I'm fairly young, but I'm not a cocky, wanna race, haul ass everywhere driver.

First car 2001 Grand AM GT (75th Ann. Bought stock)


2005 Chrysler 300C (bought stock)


1999 Saturn SC1 (painted in bedliner and now my dad drives it to save gas. Was my winter beater)


2005 Cobalt SS Supercharged


And here is my pride and joy 03 600RR (bought stock)



All I own now is the BMW, bike and Saturn. All others are sold minus the grand am, it's my brothers car now.
Nice pics! Nice bike! Nice BMW!

Keep your eyes open for meets!

Is an aftermarket fairing, can get them in any color choice you want, I laid the bike down and got a couple diff sets of plastics but ended up keeping these for the longest time now. Motofansclub is who makes them.

An idk if I'm taking my BMW either, might ride with a buddy, cuz the Detroit area is always fun to drive a nice car with dumb drivers

Kid who bought my cobalt got pulled over second day he had it for tints, I laughed. I have a script, got it before I tinted the windows on it. Now no tickets for me. Can't wait till it warms up and I can't tint this car.
Probably doing the entire car in 5% with a windshield strip.

Mind sharing who you got the script from? A friend of mine has the same. And, I KNOW not everyone has bad or sensitive eyes.....
He also runs 5% all around on his. I want at least 15-20%! It's not even much! 35% is beginning to look to light.

Mash - lens crafters in Okemos at the meridian mall. Lady was nice, just said I have sensitive eyes and paid for an exam and she filled out the sheet. Says I'm photophobic / extremely sensitive to sunlight. They can write that but can't write you have a medical condition cuz they could loose their licenses. Ill bring it to a meet and show you guys the 3 papers I have that get me out everytime besides just my script.

And we should set up a meet there, why don't we ever meet at a bar or grab food and all get together during the winter?
