Taka, seeing that you are the President of the RX-8 club, does that mean you will be gunning for presidency of the BMW club too? Where does your loyalty lie????? Lol

Congrats Taka. We've all been through the wait. I'll be looking forward to seeing another 1er in the area. I only see a SGM 125i regularly in the area now

Thanks Ash. It is sad to tell you that I am also moving out of area to the new home, only 1..2..3 suburbs away.

Looks like there are quite a few new members with cars coming. Maybe it's time to try another GTG in Melbourne...after I serve my 1 month suspension.

Your one will come much sooner ... mine is still halfway between France and South Africa.. yours just in the northern states.

Glad to see your household fleet is all blue though... mine is nearly the same colour.

As Taka said, very expensive gift delivery. I was driving to Taka's house to get him to bring a baby pressie to a friend in Adelaide. That car has brutal power and is always tempting. But I just checked. I get off my suspension on the 18th which is tomorrow!
