When I picked my ordered '99 M3 up at John Roberts BMW in Austin (no longer exists afaik), I stopped by my buddy's office on 360 and then proceeded to drive Spicewood Springs on that perfect October day ahhhh.

I thought I saw an AW 135i with tinted windows at that intersection. Sorry I didn't give you the 1 series index finger #1 wave, I was a couple blocks away when I thought of that!

Even sitting at a red light your AW looked FAST!

I was in town visiting family last weekend and took my sis & nephew for a spirited spin down & up the north bit of Spicewood Springs Rd.

Such a great piece of road. :biggrin:

I saw my first 1 series on the road last friday. It was a Montego blue coupe. Saw it a about 10 at night on 620 just coming off of toll road 45. I wanted to follow behind, but had someone following me. It looked beautiful, even in the dark.

They're finally starting to get a few 1-series in stock at BMW of Austin. The inventory on their dealership page is listing 8 currently in stock though I believe that counts customer cars that haven't been picked up yet.
