We need to find a way to exchange e-mails. Let me know if you have any ideas. Also maybe we can meet up in the off topic thread though I haven't visited that yet.
I left the other forum for a similar reason as I was attacked personally for the car I drove. When that level of immaturity (heck call it insecurity) happens it's time to forget it and move on.
If you come across Merc say hello for me. He's a guy I always liked and respected. Let him know an SL is in my crosshairs in the next few years. When my son takes the G to college in 2010 I'll pick up an SL as long as business stays as good as I expect.
I'm sure BMW will please you with the 1-series. I'm still looking for one on the road. Let me know what direction you go in on the SUV front.

Recently, I quit the "other" Edmunds forum for a while. I do miss some of the interaction there, but I got so sick of some of the personal attacks, and totally stupid and ignorant redneck posts that showed absolutely no class whatsoever.
Unfortunately, things will remain that way until proof of opposable thumbs is required for registration...

From what I recall, there is the capability to exchange "private messages" in our carspace page. I remember doing this some time ago with another member. It acts as sort of a link between our genuine email addresses, and alerts us when there is a private message. It retains our confidential status and privacy as well.
You can try it with just a test message, and if it works, I'll reply!
Send a message from your own carspace page (not from your personal email) to:
Let's see what happens.

Well, the 1 series has been out since March and I've seen all kinds of pictures on the internet, as well as "built my own" hundreds of times on BMWUSA's website, and even got to check out the 1 series first hand at the NY Auto Show. But up until Saturday after work I haven't seen one on the road. I saw a Crimson Red 135i Coupe. It was gorgeous!

I've seen several on the road. The styling just doesn't work for me. Still a great drive, however.

It's difficult to visualize, or describe, the 1 coupe as "gorgeous". Perky, fresh, neat, unique, funky...perhaps, but "gorgeous"? I would reserve that for the M3 coupe. Now, in cabriolet form, the 1's shape works much better.

I test drove a 128i two weeks ago. Very, very nice. 135i is next on my list!
The driver controls are very well sorted and the only complaint relates to space for my knees when the seat is adjusted to make it comfortable for a 5"2" daughter to maintain circulation in the lower calves! My knees needed to rest against the side of the lower dash. Adjusted normally with no rear passenger was much better.
Needless to say the drive was impeccable. No SP but for daily drives, it is a very potent package for fun, economy and comfort as well.

Not that I'm in the market anyway, but I really dig the MINI Cooper S at the sub (way sub) $30K price point.
3er Coupes are much more popular around these parts. 9 out of 10 E92 3er coupes that I see are 328xi while the remaining 1 out of 10 are 335i Coupes (With Sport Package)

I can tell you the Mini exhibit at the NYIAS was jammed with potential buyers! You could sense the desire by the enthusiasm!

My wife wants a Clubman but Louisville doesn't have a Mini dealer yet. The dealer group that holds the BMW franchise recently opened a Smart dealership, but no Mini store for the forseeable future...
