Columbus Ohio roll call

I'm likely the newest 1 owner in the city, so I wanted to reach out others in the neighborhood. I picked up my 128i Thursday night.

Hi, I'm Bill and I'm a 1 addict.

::raises hand::

I'm Stan, and I am also a 1 addict.

My good friend purchased a 128 after riding in mine, but he doesn't seem to like forums very much.

I've had my 135i since October. Only seen two others on the road in Columbus.

Yeah, I've seen very few.

I saw an AW 135 convertible near my stomping grounds (Lewis Center). I also saw a silver 135 in the Easton parking garage. Also, one day a red 135 in front of the Apple Store.

I saw a 128 at Easton last Summer.

I've see a few others on the road, but I generally don't count them becasue they've all been within a mile of MAG, I work in the same area.

If it was an AW 128, it was probably mine.

It wasn't AW. If memory serves it as blue.

Ahhh... then you saw the visiting 128. That car sported Virginia plates and was around for 4-5 days in a row. Nice ride... never got to speak to the owner.

No, I don't stalk other drivers. I'm just insanely observant and have a darn good memory.

Hey guys... I've got a 135i in Montego Blue. I live in Powell and work in Marysville so you might have seen me through the Dublin area. I may be the longest owner here (one year this past March and still love every second of it).

Hope to see you guys out and about!

Did you take yours out and autocross it once last year?

Yes. I auto-x it with both SCCA (early in season) and after that I auto-x it with my neighbor (who has a supercharged miata) at some Miata events. Double the drive time and more laid back with the Miata guys/gals.

Were you there? I haven't seen any other 1's at auto-cross but did see a couple up at Mid-Ohio last year.

Yea, I was there running the Camaro and taking pictures. I maybe running my 128 in two weeks. The Camaro is having issues and I don't think it is going to be ready.

Picked up '08 135 vert in December. Silver one at Easton may have been me. Typically around the east-side/Reynoldsburg area.

I'm one of the two white 135's in Dublin. The other guy works for the company adjacent to mine (what a douche, to copy me like that). Joking. Sort of.

See you at the autocross event. I'll be the newbie squealing and forgetting to breathe.

Do we finally have enough 1ers in Columbus to have a proper meeting?

The BMW CCA meeting is next Wednesday (5/20 ~7:30) at the Winking Lizard on Bethel. Last month's meeting was my first visit. The guys are diverse but all really cool (seriously, you have to be pretty darn cool to attend an car club meeting, right?).

If you haven't already, look into joining the CCA. It'd be nice to have more newbs there with me.

Well, I just ordered mine from MAG last weekend.

135 Le Mans, Terra leather, 6MT, M-Sport, Premium... I might be up for a BMW CCA meeting, even though I won't technically be an owner for another couple months.

Oh, and Bill, I actually know you. I used to have a blue S2K that I'd run at the OVR events. A few years ago you were actually my teacher at the auto-x school that OVR runs. Funny...

Last month's meeting is the first one I've missed! Ha!

I plan on being there this month, barring any other distractions.
