Yes I noticed that not all ships log their position. I guess it's up to the captain if he wants to turn on tracking or be a 'stealth ship'. My captain decided to suddenly go stealth in the middle of the Indian Ocean.

Perhaps someone on the bridge accidentally kicked out the plug of the GPS tracking machine:biggrin:

Good on you zuzu. I think in general the Aussie 1er owner will be of a more mature age than our American counterparts. There are quite a number of under 25s there. Reason: price.

PS like you new avatar.

Thanks ..So hard trying to find a decent Black Saphire metalic pix of a 135i..
Finally found a new posting today.
I think you are right about the Aussie demographics for the 1er.
Unlike our American counterparts,I dont think the average young wage earner can really afford the car in Oz..
Besides the exception of a few high achievers including our forum members..

Just to confirm the thought here, I'm 46 and definately on a mid-life crisis after a recent big op, so reliving life. Am single, so no $$'s comitted elsewhere other than moi.

The Yanks don't know how lucky they have it. 4.5% interest rates, <8% LCT, $30K 135's... Sheez.

No more updates, obviously?

To be a true Addict, you can go here:

and watch your ship enter Port Philip Bay.

Now that is really sad.....
