Take that baby to the Ring ASAP before it's too late! You'll regret it forever if you don't.

Congrats by the way.

Because American military/civilian personnel working for the US government cannot bring back to the US a European specifications car unless its converted over to US specifications and also meets emissions requirements that are different between both nations.

Also, you would probably be paying more in euros than what the car is worth in $$, and when it comes time to sell...........I won't even go there

Chop, welcome to the crew. Where did you buy your 135i? Will definetly keep you infromed if you're interested in hitting the events and tracks throughout the year.
