My morning commute...

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Blustery day in PA. It's nice to see the greens and golds coming back to life. And, of course, the "oranges". Starting to relax and enjoy it more as it's nearly paid off and approaching 9k on the clock. Thanks again to Jon Hoxworth at Faulkner BMW for MSRP and a stellar experience with this one. Glad to still be the original owner of this beast! I just had to share this moment of morning bliss.

Hard not too long for a change sometimes as an original owner, I don't even read car mags anymore because I'm not going to switch, I considered it and put a deposit down on a cayman gt4... Realized I just wasn't ok with parting with the 1 and bought a cheapish older carerra.. Problem solved lol.. That gorgeous photo just reinforces it, how'd you get that angle?

I pulled over and hopped out! No one else around. It's a pretty quiet farm road. I am lucky enough to get the morning and early evening colors during my commute. This is just the beginning - as the season warms up we should be getting even more color. It's hard to capture things out here since there isn't too much elevation. We are fortunate enough to see some hills and a farm off of our back deck, too.

Congrats on the Porsche. I can't imagine trading this in. Maybe adding an old Bug or an E30. I wonder if my '84 318i is still kicking somewhere....

Well, Brooklyn's not that bad! My brother in law just sold his diner up there. It was right by the water. But, sure, there are worse commutes than this one. It's not so bad to look out at some farmland and even take some twisties on the way in to work.

I hear ya TIT2GRE. I had a 79' 320i in college..I often wonder where that old girl is. Sold it in the early 90's.

Hopefully the hi-res (well, iPhone 5 hi-res if that counts) comes across. I had some issues with the mobile platform and also getting it to fit the parameters here. Is this any better? Otherwise I'd have to DropBox it or something.

I like the plate. Only other BMW nerds would get it...

Anyone have any ideas on how to get a higher res image posted? Pretty strict parameters.

1. What a beautiful commute you have

2. 9K miles? Tremendous restraint, regardless of how many other cars you drive

Just re-size your photos to 400mb max size. Normally anything between 200Mb and 400Mb works well. Or about 1K pixels wide, in size.

I don't like using a third party service to post pics... bc once the photo is uploaded to 1Addicts/Bimmerpost... the photos will always be here. No broken links down the road.

That's some eye-popping saturation! Very nicely done.
