    Anyone alive and kicking? or everyone's lurking?

    I'm back from Korea, I was actually trying to post while there but it wouldn't let me sign-in for some weird reason.
    Hope all is well viv kev bob and others.
    Damn that e92 335i is so sexy... The engine I mean!
    Well, I guess it's not too bad overall...
    Anyone catch at e30 M3 for 8k in the for sale section?
    Damn, if only I had the money.
    Cheap considering the ones I've seen were going for 12k+

    I'm here!

    I check in every once in awhile, but not a lot of activity. From looking at Larry's pictures, I regret missing the Euro Sunday. There were a lot of cool cars.

    How was Korea? We might go there next summer before going to Tokyo. I haven't been to Seoul in about 10 years. The last time I was there I went on a shoot when I worked at CNN Asia. 3 Days was not enough to explore that city.

    Been on vacation ! ! !

    Actually managed to get outa dodge for a week, headed back east for a whirl wind tour including 3 stops. Hit Cape Cod for 3 days, a part of rural PA ofr 3 days (long story) and the last night in Manhattan, of all places! Nothing like living out of a suitcase...

    Of course, missed not one but 2 Sharkfests, odd scheduling conflict that had the events spaced an entire week apart :(

    Funny you speak about the new 335i coupe Ian! Just happened to see one yesterday, apparently on a test drive from Mountain View BMW (formerly Allison BMW). Man, I gotta tell ya, looked hot and MUCH better than the initial sedan! Rear lighting looked, well, pleasing?

    One last thought. Many of the 6er community are looking to part ways with RF, as we are getting tired of the Nazi like attitude of the board moderators. And frankly, there are plenty other venues to choose from, so it may not be long before I no longer "lurk" on the other boards, like the NorCal one. But I'll do my best to keep an eye out :)
    Cheers, Bob

    Re: Been on vacation ! ! !

    That's too bad...
    I've actually HEARD of the "nazi like" mods out on some of the boards, luckily I've never had a run in with any of them although I've heard they ran away a few veterans on the e28 board.
    I'm finally on my way to a beautifully handling... well... beauty!
    Hahahahaha, just ordered a "complete" front end suspension from Steve Haygood (known on the e28 boards here and elsewhere).
    VERY knowledgable guy with his Bimmers, very friendly, and got me some pretty killer prices!
    He specializes in e24/e28's, if you need parts you should ask him first ;]
    ANYWAY, yah... that 335i is HOT, I'm not a big fan of the Bangle-ness... but the sheer power of that sexy thing is quite scary.
    Its potential is insane!
    I finally landed myself a job too! Muhahaha
    I'll be moving onto the peninsula within the next few months as the office is in San Mateo, now we just need Viv to leave Sacramento so her baby can bask in the weather of the bay.

    Re: I'm here!

    Unfortunately, no... I didn't bring home a wife, wait... Should I have said fortunately? Heh heh, hope the kids enjoyed their summer vacation and are recharged and ready to tackle another year of "gruelling" student life.
    Damn, I now realize how much of a blast I had during my many years in college. ;[
    I'm so sad it's over, I want to go back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Seems like things up north are starting to cool down, a much needed break for you and the rest up there.
    As I said in my response to Shrky, I landed a job! Yay!
    It was awesome, my friend referred me on Wednesday, scheduled and nailed the interview on Friday, got the offer this morning for a salary I can totally survive on! =D
    Ahhhh the great(?) world of networking.
    I'm hoping to get my front end rebuilt sometime this week, then I'll really get to have some fun with her muhahahaha.
    O yah, this shimmy is really getting dangerous too.

    Re: I'm here!

    Three days? You need at least a SOLID week to cover Seoul and probably over a good month to see the rest of the peninsula!
    Korea was a blast as usual, I went to "recover" from my ulcer yet I managed to consume a lot of alcohol in doing so.
    That's really really really bad, I know, but to balance it out I was eating SUPER good food and lots of it.
    I somehow managed to actually lose weight in all of that eating/drinking frenzy I called a "vacation".
    CNN Asia??
    Shooting video or taking pictures?
    One of the first things on my list of toys to buy is the Canon 30D and a nice 18-75 ish lens to match ;]
    But that's quite a pricey toy... so we'll have to see.
