Same here. Excited to go snowboarding but sad that I'll be driving the Mazda for the next couple months.

i hate winter. it makes me want to move haha. Plus I haven't skied in 2 years. No time for a good trip which isn't worth it since the wife doesn't ski. Boston mills/brandywine blow haha


On the plus side I may be returning to a BMW car. Not until spring though. I may be switching jobs that will give me a work car(not sure what though), if that happens and I can get a break even deal on the VW and with trading in my wifes car we may just get a e91 and do ED next summer. The stars will likely have to align just right though haha.

Boston Mills/Brandywine does blow but it's my only option considering that I don't have a job. Plus it looks like next semester I won't be super slammed with classes so I'll have some extra time on my hands. We'll see.

Nice, hopefully you can jump back into the bimmer world! Just curious though, what makes you want an E91 over another E90?

I like the utility aspect. We recently got a dog(early spring) and I still had the e90 and it was tough to take her places plus other stuff. When my e90 lease was up we started shopping and ended up with a Jetta Sportwagen 2.0T. I'm loving it, now if it were a e91 with zmp in the garage then I'd be ecstatic. The utility coupled still a sporty drive is where it's at for me. I like to drive and until the new X3 arrives (or I can tool around with an X1) I won't be getting any SAV/SUV's. I can load my JSW up with crap and still drive it like a car. Now if the new car happens to happen then a e91 or A4 wagen will be had.

Makes sense. I really like those new Audi's. It's a tough decision between the two IMO.

If this goes down I'll def. try to find a way to play with both. Not many dealers tend to keep any e91's on the lots around here and I pass Stoddard Audi on the east side regularly and have never seen any A4 wagens sitting around either. So it may be tough to compare.

The wife and I are interested if we do this in doing ED and BMW seems to have a more streamlined program although I haven't really taken the time to check into Audi's ED program.

So we'll see. I'm crossing my fingers

We haven't had any meets yet, Chewy734 and myself are going to try to put something together hopefully. We'll let you know. Pittsburgh is kinda far from Cleveland though but you're still more than welcome to come when we have one!

We are definitely going to have a meet but I'm not too sure when. I'd like to let this thread grow over the winter and have a nice size meet in the spring. But if you guys wanna do something during the winter, I'm sure we can grab coffee or lunch somewhere and chat a little bit.

It's up to you guys, I'm down for either.

You weren't told? Oh, this is only a west sider thing. No east siders allowed. I hope you can understand, the odd Cleveland split and all.....

Haha well I guess you can count me out then since I live on the southside. Just hop on 77 and go south, that's where you can find me.

That's what you get for hiring a dumb ass.

I really don't see things getting much better for UofM next year either.

You are preaching to the choir. The only ones happy with that move are the teams we're handing victories to every year. Not only has he stomped on our tradition, he's getting progressively worse, and on top of that, he's brought in investigations and all kinds of discipline problems. He's not only a dumb ass on the field, he's destroying us off the field too. I never wanted to hire this guy. Before he even coached his first game, he had brought controversy. I could give him a pass if he won 10 games a year (to include OSU). But since we can't even finish out of the cellar in our own conference, there's no reason to keep him around; he's as big a cancer as I have ever seen in a program (except for Matt Millen, but that's a given). It's embarrassing to be a Michigan fan these days....

I will not continue to donate to the school until they fix that shit.

Sorry. /rant
