getting car back soon, will need to celebrate

I should be getting my car back very soon (visit my long and painful thread for the latest). So I figure when I finally see my poor car we are all going to need to get together for some sort of little celebration. Any suggestions? I was thinking maybe a happy hour or something (I could really use a drink! ) I am open to ideas as long as it is not too far from me (unless the drive is fun).

So what are eveyone's thoughts?

Happy hour on us!!!
I offer to drive you to VOB and I'm sure others can meet us there to drive to the closest place for drinks.

I'd love to, but the next 2 weekends is no good for me, I'll be out of town. I can do the weekdays in between though.

Set something up and I'll try my darndest to be there, for Dani!

2nd round on me

Let's celebrate by doing a top speed run to make sure nothing rattles.

D'uh, a low speed run through downtown DC is more effective in uncovering rattles...

wow. I love how suportive our DC group is. Thanks everybody. So someone recommend someplace good to go in Rockville. Whatever day I go pick up my car (as soon as I hear from them) I'll just post where I'm going in the morning and hopefully everyone can meet me there.

Well if you're going to VOB, then I'd recommend the venue for the last NCC happy hour, South of the Border. Its practically neighboring VOB BMW.

I sympathize your being stuck with the X3 all this time. I was recently issued one as a loaner for a warranty repair and the two days I had it was bad enough. The interior is so cheap and tacky and the 5-speed steptronic is so laggy in manual mode. And what's with the pencil-thin steering wheel? Can't believe BMW put their good name on this POS.

Grosvenor Lane near my home is actually a very good piece of crappy road for that! Just one pass and you'll hear every possible rattle.

VOB's messed-up body shop is actually not next to the dealership. It's right next to the twinbrook metro station, in a very secluded spot...

Congrats Dani --- on getting YOUR car back, now when are you ordering a new one??

Will it feel different...? Will the love still be there....?? For you, I hope so.

Keep us posted on the Happy Hour...though for the time you've been away from that car, you should plan a "Happy Week"

enjoy.

I think a group wash of your car is in order. That's the least that the DC Metro Crew can do, right?

Glad to hear there may be an end to this story. I know everyone is hoping it is a happy one. I look forward to hearing that you are finally back in the drivers seat and enjoying the view!
