Hi Mark -
Congratulations on the car! Thanks for your post, I enjoyed reading it. I was driving home to NJ after the Coca-Cola 600 in Charlotte and spent some time on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Unfortunately I didn't have the roadster, but I had my 328is which is the next best thing. An outstanding scenic drive, I'd recommend anyone driving through the area to include a leg on it.
Those "Z3 Experiences" will just keep on coming! The car always gets attention. Sadly, sometimes it is unwanted attention, as you found out with that pickup. A small but highly annoying group of drivers out there seem to feel the need to prove that your fancy car ain't all that hot. Best thing is always to let them go, so they can set off all the speed traps in front of you! Don't worry, the positive experiences FAR outweigh the a**holes. The other day I came to a little league doing a roadside fund raiser, when I stopped to drop something into the bucket, I got a slew of "Nice cars!" and the whole crowd of kids and parents actually *applauded*!!
