Weather Jealous!

Checking out threads of pics and meets in warm climates are making me wish I lived somewhere warm right now. Anyone else with me?

I guess it will make it that much sweeter to put the summer wheels back on this spring.

I like the M6 reps (winter set), but I love my OEM Style 162 summer set event more.

+ My car is so crusty right now from all the snow, road dirt and salt it's not even funny. Wash it; 24hrs later back to crustiness.

Spring time and summer set back on ; always loogs so good & feels like your car is new again and handle so much better again.

And you wonder why all of us here in San Diego (and socal in general) dont mind dealing with the huge cost of living and outrageous house costs. Its worth it!

San Diego is such a beautiful city, just fell in love with it

La Jolla is also very nice.

Can't say the same for L.A.

You obviously haven't been to north Florida.

And I have to dispute your claim about the weather, as well. I prefer to do my swimming in pools, rather than the ambient atmosphere.

i live in orlando, and i travel to gainsville pretty often and its the same there, and considering that everything south of gainsville is about 90% of florida i think my statement was pretty accurate :finger:

I would move in a heartbeat if my business could be moved to a southern state with no problems. But I guess I can put up with a little cold for getting a BMW on my own at 23 and making great money.

The only real problem I have with winter is the bitter cold which isn't often and not being able to keep my car clean. The 2nd part I can fix, whatever house I end up getting the garage floor will get a seal coat, good lighting, and some space heaters. I'll be hand washing my car in the dead of winter in cleveland, ohio haha.
