She decided that she was going to follow the truck into the post office parking lot. Truck had lots of room. The caddy not so much. She was 3/4 of the way into my lane before she got it stopped. I had the antilock brakes maxed out and just managed to steer around her. I think there was less than an inch between her bumper and my drivers side wheel.

Thank god no one was pulling out of the post office lot or I would have been screwed...
Damn, dude.. sorry to hear that..Im glad luck was on your side!

Spending Presidents Day afternoon watching the Top Gear Marathon on BBC America -- AND doing some home network administration/maintenance..... Gotta love Top Gear! Jeremy Clarkson is such an "pompous @$$" -- probably why I like him so much!

Nice

I was really impressed with it when I saw it at the DC Auto Show. Didn't get to drive one though.

Already? Can't blame you though, I've been thinking about upgrading from the Z for a little while now. Only thing stopping me is not having the money to do it

Yeah the thought has crossed but the Z is paid off and being debt free is nice. I'd most likely have to return to having monthly payments if I were to get a new 335i and have no desire doing that.

Plan B is to save up so I can buy a Corvette outright in cash in a couple years. Then the Z can be the beater car.

You can get a used 335i in the $20-30k range.

C7 Corvette is on my list of possible next cars.

CTS-V is one badass ride.

I honestly think my next car is going to be a Viper, and it will probably be an addition to the current stable. I just need to get a house first.

blah!! being part of the NOVA m3 group, we had some of those show up and.....just blah. For starters, unless you put a full exhaust and chip it, its VERY boring. And even when you do, it doesnt handle the power very well unless you throw on coilovers (the stock suspension SUCKS on the 335) and new tires (which also suck). It also doesnt handle NEAR as well as the 370. Plus, unless you buy it new, its most likely been ragged on and those turbos have been very unreliable. Its very smooth and comfortable however, something I despise on a sports car. If you want a bmw sports car, get an m3.

(can you tell I dont like the 335?)
