Well guys, after 3 months, I finally got my IS. Its fully loaded, black, with black Escaine and polished rims. Unlike a lot of you all, I dont have to suffer through the break-in period, since I managed to put almost 900 miles on her in 24 hours


I agree with everyone's assessments of the car. Its absolutely fabulous. I dont care what the editors and enthusiasts say; BMW better watch. I can say this since I have both in my driveway, and I can attest that they BOTH have strong points.

Off topic: My high-school sweetheart, who is an angel dropped from above, went all out and threw a huge Christmas party Friday night. There was almost 100 people there, most of them her friends
Anyway, she sang my favorite Christmas song to me, "All I Want for Christmas is You" by Mariah Carey. After she finished the song, and after all the applause died down, she gave me a big hug and a kiss, then she shocked the hell out of me by proposing! Gotta love older women (25) AND leap year
It took me half a second to think how much I love her, and how lucky I would be to have her in my life forever, and then I said YES. So, its official guys, Im an engaged man


The point of all that rambling is that now that I am officially all hers, she went out Saturday and bought the IS for me. I woke up Xmas morning to find this beautiful car in our driveway with a huge red bow on top! Makes me wonder what I would have got if I had said NO

10 - she's got money and ain't afraid of spending it.

Justy, nice catch bro. Hope she's the same way after 10 years of marriage.

Thanks guys! I couldnt be luckier to have someone so sweet and beautiful in my corner. Everytime I drive my new car, Im going to remember waking up Xmas morning with it in the driveway with that big bow on it. I didnt think about it til yesterday when we were out driving around, but I remember asking her about my ring. I asked her after she proposed where my ring was, and she told me, "Im getting it tomorrow, but it may be a little big". I didnt get it then of course, but now I see she was referring to the steering wheel


p.s. Jai, I know you pop in from time to time, so if youre reading this, thanks again baby, I love you!

Good suggestion, ALL


BUT, if I pick one that long, it needs to be something like;

Thanks, again, Hyper and Chromo! My friends tell me how lucky I am, but Ive known that from jump. Jai loves cars also, she can sing, shes goofy as hell, gorgeous, sweet as pie, very generous, and has a trust fund! OK, that last one was a joke

What more can one ask for in a girl?


And yes, Hyper, not only does she have a SISTER, but she's her IDENTICAL TWIN

Hyper, I wouldnt do that to you man. Shes a **tch. Her and my fiance are as different as night and day thank goodness. In her sister's eyes, you arent s*it unless you went to an Ivy League school, and/or have a trust fund
