bye bye Norcal

I sold my car last Sunday because I am moving back to Japan. I've had this car since Dec of 05 and 30,000 miles. I had lots and lots of fun with this car.

The most beautiful car I've ever had

The fastest car I've ever had

The most "fun to drive" car I've ever had.


I also want to thank everyone who I met through this forum. I know I do not have E90/E92 but you guys were so nice when I came out for the meet. I really enjoyed hanging out with you guys. I wish i could stay longer and represent M3 at Norcal/Socal Meet :rocks: but oh well....

I really had a lot of fun and I am very sad right now.

I know people would ask me "so what are you gonna get in japan?" well..to answer that question, I am not sure. I will be living in middle of downtown tokyo where monthly parking is 400-500 dollars. I am not sure if I can justify buying a car as of right now. An M3 costs average 10k-20k more than it does here so financially, I don't think I am capable anyway.

I could go back to VW and buy R32 or something but after owning an M3...it's hard to go back to something not M3 or Porsche

I might save up some more money and get S4 avant. I really would like to get an RWD again but i'll save that till I will be able to afford E92 M3 or 997 E90 might be another way to go and finally i can be one of you guys!


here are the pix I took (or my gf took for me) last 2 days before my car was sold.

at Lombart Street



at Fillmore Street



at Santana Row



Palm Tree Street in Stanford University



17-mile Drive near Pebble Beach in Monterey



after last car wash



Last Gas stop




10 min before i sold it




bye bye

So, it's been great seeing you at our meets, and I hope you continue to drop by the forums to say hi every now and then while in Japan. Good luck with your new job there!

what up so! man, sad to see you moving back to japan too! you were in the bay area for such a short period of time!

anyway, it was always nice seeing you at the norcal meets and providing the awesome pics you'd take.

best wishes with your new chapter in life in japan! who knows, maybe you'll find yourself back in the states one day.

oh damn...that was fast! you weren't even here that long.

it was great seeing you at the meets, and good luck over there in japan. I'm sure you're going to feast your eyes of some crazy modded cars there, so keep us posted.

i hope the new owner of your m3 is a bmw enthusiast! all the best!
