Thanksgiving 2006


tksgving-06-001.JPG

The 2006 Thanksgiving feast was hosted by Marc & Jen, their first foray into the family Thanksgiving hosting morass. Aside from the Great Chopped Liver Fiasco of 2006, which was beyond their control, they fared very well. These are pictures of the participants, ranging in age from 2 to 86.

BMW Performance Center Delivery


IMG_0650.jpg

BMW North America provides a new car delivery option that is a refreshing change from dealer delivery. Customers who choose Performance Center Delivery are given driving instruction on the test track at the Greer, SC (Greenville-Spartanburg area) facility followed by a tour of the assembly plant where X5s and Z4s are built. During the course of the day, the customer's car is delivered. These photos depict my experience with BMW Performance Center Delivery on July 29, 2005, when I got my new M3.

The 545i Takes to the Skid Pad264 viewsIt was a rainy day to begin with, but the skid pad always is made slippery by a high-powered irrigation system. Here, we would test our new knowledge of Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), by observing how the car responds with and without DSC turned on. We did lots of doughnuts with DSC off.
