I have the old thread on my book marks and I kept using that to check up on the forums (its been busy at the start of the year so I've only checked like twice), but the last post was and has been on the morning of New Years day and nothing since. My first thought was "hmm, people must have had a new year's resolution to not go on the forums as much..."

Fact of the matter is, is that we started a new thread, I didn't realize it and I'm just a damn moron.

...I should have known better.
Don't worry, you were not alone ..

^^^ Also, looks like you are getting some nice gas mileage out of the new car... looks like the tops of the number 11.8 mpg....

Very nice...

Yeah, everything was going fine until i decided to turn around, i made sure not to get my rear tires in the deep stuff, so i put my fronts in the deep snow and my rears on the slick ice. got stuck. Had to call for backup. And 11.8mpg is standard for a RWD beemer in the snow, you should know that.

Lol, I thought that was you but I wasn't paying attention until I was already flying by. I was having a little fun and your license plate caught my attention at the last second.

I work right down the road from there.

I was the exact same way Nick. Didn't like the change. But now that I'm used to it...it's very nice and user friendly. Be sure to use the "recent unread posts" tool in the top-right

Any of you fools gonna plan on going out to Timmayfest in June? We are trying to figure out if getting a caravan started here in Chicago is worth it or just getting there as fast as possible is a better idea.

I might go if there is a lot of people here that go, but that might be a stretch.

Speaking of upcoming meets, will there be a Midwest meet like last year? Would be great if there was another one!

dunno if there will be one... TimmayFest kinda took top honors last year (200 cars) so that might end up being the one. I wish I had enough time to organize one myself but I'm getting married this summer and planning the wedding mostly by myself.

I'm in the same boat as you. I'm not a fan of the mnbmw interface.

I'd be interested for sure. It's been too long since I went on a decent road trip. Keep us posted if you Chicago yokes are putting together a caravan.
