I saw a black convertible 1er in downtown Houston this morning pulling into the parking garage of the Reliant Energy building. Does that belong to anyone here? The parking garage is on the corner of Lamar and Travis

Katera is the only black 'vert I know of so far in town (I'm sure there are others but if they aren't on 1Addicts...they don't count).

Shame. All one owners should register here. There is not that many of us in the first place, especially if you only count the Houston area.

lol


When I read this I had to do a quick mental check...was I downtown in Kat? Considering that I have not left Kingwood since I got her tinted the answer was no. I know I know...we need to get out more!

Right now she is a 3rd luxury car for us. Kind of like an expensive piece of chocolate. If you had it every day it would lose some of its luster, but when you have it as a special treat it's that much sweeter :biggrin:. The only bad part is I'm not even half way to the 1200 mile break in yet, lol.

So how did the meet go? Did I miss out as much as I think? I will definitely try to make the August 9th one at LaCenterra in Cinco Ranch.

Ya know we should *really* organize a full fledged Houston 1 series get together on some Saturday. The Woodlands is a great place to meet. Maybe we can all have breakfast at La Madeline or something?

Woodlands would be good. We could all park next to each other so no one would hit us

We had a really good turnout, probably 25+ cars. Patricia, AlexP1 and I all brought the 1's so at least 1Addicts was well represented. There was a little of everything there, from a brand new M6, some M Coupes, a tricked out 550, a bunch of M3's, some nice E30's, a 3.0CS and a 2002.

We just hung out, had a coffee, checked out the cars and then part of the group went on a roadtrip out to the hill country and another part went to see Wall*E (great movie by the way!!).

Because the group was so big, I think we're going to try and move it next door to Panera Bread next month...they have a lot more room. Definitely make it if you can!

I am definitely up for a 1-Series only meet...let me know when and where and I'll be there!

So Katera, are you going to kick this thing off? I'm very interested if it happens.

Congrats :thumbup: I so much very regret not getting the sports package

BTW, I'm beginning to see more 1ers in Houston. Just had a second sighting of the week at the Galleria area.

Good job man. I'm gonna wait a bit to see if I'm really willing to spend that much money on the carbon fiber spoiler.

How are you liking those performance pedals? Those are probably going to be my next upgrade. I just hate the thought of drilling holes for screws

Pedals are fine. Install was quick and easy with the right tools, BUT i will say that the holes dont line up very well and one of my holes almost went off the pedal. I ended up repositioning and got it all working. But again, Hole alignment not very good from BMW

hmmm thanks for the insight, perhaps I'll go with the stainless steel pads that don't require drilling. But then again, they don't look as good performance ones.

I visited Houston 2 weeks ago, staying on Hillcroft. I saw a nice Sedona Red 128i on July 18, in the neighborhood. The first 1-series I've seen in Houston.
