That is in the garage with the door shut,the engine off, and the stereo blasting. Got a battery tender and I’m sitting in the M3 with a beer listening to some tunes. Not going anywhere but I’m enjoying both my M3 and some beers at the same time. Can’t get a DUI if you don’t actually drive.
I took a phone interview for a frac consulting job in Colorado two Mondays ago. Well, they called me around 5 today to offer me the job. There was just one caveat, they wouldn’t be moving me, I would live where I am now.
First up was the M3. It lives in a garage, so it doesn’t really get that dirty; as a result I figured I would tackle that first.
Some of you know I went and test drove an Alfa Romeo the other day. This was to fulfill my curiosity as to what they were like to drive. While a 5 minute test drive is not sufficient to fully take in a car, it can at least give you an initial impression; 5 minutes was all I needed to know that I wanted an E9X M3, and…
Today, we find this black on black E91 M-Sport with the proper transmission for the low price of only $18k.
Mine is a little over 36 miles and takes around 35 minutes, got to love rural interstates. Make the drive everyday in this:
I like it.
As some of you know, I used to work in the oil and gas industry; I used to be a frac engineer. I didn’t fully understand all the technology that went behind poking holes in the earth before I got into the industry. One of the things that has fascinated me is the response to what Saddam did to the oil wells in Kuwait;…
It’s difficult to fully take in a car in a 5 minute test drive. You get you initial impressions right away, but to get the complete picture, it takes a while. I’m not sure how long. Through my unnecessary car shopping I’ve gone and driven a few cars, 996 turbo, 997 Carrera 4, 2015 S5, 1M, just to name a few. I can…
This 328i xdrive wagon comes in at a low 13k. It is AWD, which is somewhat of a disappointment to some of you, but a boon to others. However, for this price I would forgive both the AWD and lack of sport pack to acquire a manual BMW wagon.
Currently, Carmax has three E90 M3s with a 6MT. They are all 2008s and all around 30k.
This is that story; however, it does not start in Boston, where we picked the car up, it starts in Nashville.
I have extensive seat time in an E90 M3 and spent several hours behind the wheel of an IS-F. Driving a C63 more than 5 minutes has eluded me. Who wants to buy this 2013 C63 and then road trip it home so I can drive it?
Put my two weeks in this morning, it feels wonderful. Already got another job lined up, which I sent them the acceptance letter yesterday.
Its raining in Savannah, but that doesn’t matter, it’s time to awake the beast. As much as I enjoyed the IS-F, enough to make me want one, I still prefer this.
Here’s all the posts related to it:
After this road trip, it’s time to hop on this MD-88 and head home via ATL.
That’s cause we made it to Nashville Tennessee
