Cool... you should definitely call me in case you come to Zurich. Maybe we can find a date this time. I could bring you to my dealer and maybe (if we are VERY lucky...) they will have their E46 M3 show car at this time - who knows.
keep me posted !
not sure on dates and not sure about how available i will be either. but is it a busy time for you in general? i dont have that much flexibility so it all depends on other factors... based on which i may be drooling over pateks in geneva or talking cars in Zuerich. have already overspent so i dont have money to buy either
am certainly going to visit the BMW dealer if i have time there since I dont have too much time to do anything else and since I have already been there before.
but i have a bunch of car mags that i took from the airline or bought in singapore basically suggesting that this kind of stuff is quite hot in certain far eastern countries. Singapore was where I was for a few days - all manner of low riding vehicular objects. I did not see a single M3 though several E36 cars rebadged as well as a few E46 cars. Not that the place lacked fine cars. Outside my hotel was a regular fleet including Lotus Elise, 360 Modena, Porsche 911 (perhaps turbo - did not get to see it clearly). And tons of mercs. I also saw an M 318, no doubt rebadged but without any other body mod. I just dont get it!!
Saw a lot of this on a vacation to Japan about a couple of months back too though not to the extent that I saw it here. I think we are somewhere in between where Europe is quite subtle and the far east especially the tiger economies are aggressively muscular in their tastes.
and am wondering what i will be in for in terms of cars next week since I will be on vacation in Africa.
have nothing to do but fly until my E46 M3 arrives. Need for speed!
