Hi All! Joined the BMW world a couple months ago. I am coming from an 04 Cadillac CTS and can't even describe the difference in handling. I got a black sapphire 330i and absolutely love it.

Anybody know any fancy restaurants in the North Shore? I started thinking of the Capital Grille or Ruth's Chris, but wanted to see if there was anything north of Boston instead. We will be two couples and we will have $500 to spend (gift card).

I liked Ruth's Chris when I went but there are better places

I actually like KO Prime, which is right near Ruth's Chris

I'm a fan of Red Rock http://www.redrockbistro.com/. View of Revere beach. Its not suit/tux fancy, but a good time.

In no particular order here are some good spots to scope out from a north shore kid....

Tryst - Beverly
62 on Wharf -Salem
Ceia - Newburyport
Barrel House American Bar- Beverly
The Blue Ox - Lynn

Have you checked out Andolini's or Yella in downtown Andover? They're not bad at all and in town. Just some suggestions!

We actually went to Andolini's last year and we weren't really impressed to be honest. Is Yella still around? I haven't been but I haven't heard people talk about it in a while. Palmer's is another option in Andover but we wanted to get out of Andover for a bit too .

Andolini's can be hit or miss, but the double cut pork chop is excellent. Yella is still around for sure, its on post office ave. Def check out Ceia, love that spot. Also Ten Center in Newburyport is good. I spend a lot of time in Newburyport so I might be bias. Have you seen that black e92 with tints, looked like OSS blacked out angel eyes, and csl's around town a lot? Saw it today downtown, looked great. First time seeing it.

I saw a black e92 today but I didn't get a good look since it drove by pretty fast. It looked like it had black wheels, tinted tails maybe?, and an m3 trunk lip. Same car?

Could have been dirty silver
It went by fast, so I didn't get a good enough look.

73k, it was the water pump.
Took it to Tulley BMW, they were very fast, gave me a loaner, and had me back in my car in a couple days. They even did the Battery cable recall, replaced the seals on the oil cooler, and my passenger side mirror motor. and it all only cost me the $50 deductible.

I forgot to update on the restaurant. It was just me and my wife since the other couple couldn't make it. We ended up going to the Capital Grille in Burlington. We had a great time and ended up spending around $350 for the both of us. It was damn good food though and I will certainly be going back.

I am keeping a list of all the restaurants mentioned though for us to check out at some point.

Kind of interesting, I interviewed with a company this week what happened to be in the running to be the manufacturer of the n54 HPFP casting. They didn't get the contract, but maybe if they had...

Hey everyone, new E92 owner here. Picked up an 07 E92 6MT about a week ago. Already have a few cosmetic / basic mods thrown on.
