On Waltham St in Lexington this AM. SGM (or Space Grey?) with Terra leather. Didn't see 128 vs 135. Do I remember correctly that there was a roof rack? We shared a nod as I passed in the opposite direction.

Another 1er today!

Passed Orca's coupe doppleganger (white with red) rounding the curve from Summer St to South St in Bedford around 2:15pm when some of us from work headed out for an afternoon snack at Kimballs. Exchanged waves with the woman driver. Didn't see 128 vs 135 (I'm so bad at that).

Still got a few hours left in the day. Think we can go for a hat trick?

HAT TRICK!!!!

Passed a grey vert with black interior (didn't feel like SGM, so maybe Space?) on Trapelo Rd near Lexington St in Waltham. The grey vert was heading toward 128 and waiting in traffic for the light as I was heading up the hill toward home. I don't know if the driver saw me, it was a quick pass.

Do you have any experience with Dick's? I live pretty close to that and have always wondered about it. Fortunately I haven't needed their services, but it would be nice to know if they are good just in case.

damn...and1

the dealership said they were the 'best but pricey'. i had a really good recommendation for a place in rowley (Sublime Restoration) but was suprised i was able to get into dicks so soon...and its much closer which is more gooder.

they got signed pictures from auerbach and wade boggs on the wall so i think they have to be good.

A black 130i hatch passed me this afternoon going south on the A5 just north of Karlsruhe. I was going about 115 MPH in the Opel wagon rental and the 130i was going at least 40 MPH faster than I was. My turn on the Autobahn is in three weeks with my new M-Sport 128i.

Ooh, that was me! I saw you taking the Mt Auburn side of the fork. I had a choice between waving or crashing into the truck in front of me that was stopping for the ambulance.

Heh! The reason I saw you was that my friend was driving behind me (in a Subaru Forester) and she was taking that fork, so I turned to look for her and saw you pass by instead. And then she called me about a minute later "There's a blue 135 in front of me!! And it just _took off_!!"

I see one, maybe two, a week usually (when I'm not seeking them out). This was truly an unusual day.
