Default Just a thank you

Hello all, I wanted to let the forum know that this is my second car (C5 Z06) and I have had, so far, a great experience interacting with forum members. I previously owned a BMW and was a part of the E46 M3 forum and, honestly, ran into some real ******. So thanks.

Tad

Welcome! I also use the Bimmer forums, but the X1 guys are pretty nice.
Love your ride, as it looks exactly like mine in 2002, except for the silver anniv. badges. Check the age of your tires...they might be a bit glassy.

Already changed them. I bought a set from Jegs. Toyo Proxes T1 Sport. They seem like a decent tire.

I hear ya....While nothing beats a well-tended black finish, I live in AZ, and know my limitations, hence the white.

Black is a great color, until it gets dirty. Enjoy!

The color is growing on me However, I did not know white was underneath. Maybe I should have the car sandblasted! I kinda like white! LOL!

Black is a ton of work, but damn does it look good when it's clean. Congrats, man. Enjoy that bad *** machine.

Welcome aboard, looks great (and familiar-ish, just add some black wheels)
I came from 17 years of 3 series'...
