Happy Birthday

I'm going to indulge for a moment and let you know it was three years ago today I took delivery of my made to order E82 135i, so it was interesting to pause for a moment and reflect on the changes over that period both in a car and personal sense.

One particular comment stands out in memory about buying a 1er at the time:

"a 1 series as a performance car? yeah right"



Great car. Happy to still have it in the stable three years on. I'll be happy if I've still got it in another three years (however it may be slightly modified some more...)

Happy Birthday

thanks guys

I should add the car got a set of CP-E downpipes as a present. I just need to figure out whether to ceramic coat them or not. I really should but because it takes a week I need to squash the "FIT IT NOW!" monster.
