    Nice though given how old it is it will take some expense to keep it running. Though it may be the users here who often run them to the ground. Still I'd gladly get one If I could afford the upkeep.

    You'll really enjoy the power and handling while creeping along at 12 mph.

    The elderly folks in Mukilteo will be greatly impressed by his choice of the M3/4. Actually, that is a nice car, I must admit. :D

    And you ain't kidding.

    I do humbly recommend the road up to Mt. St. Helen's. That is a pretty fun road.

    Pro tip: Real engineers don't use the word "engineer" as a verb.

    Well, there is a very long shot we may be co-workers within the next year or so. Will finishing up grad school in December or April. Have a few friends in EI that have been encouraging me to apply there.

    What are you doing if you do not mind me asking?

    Nice - how many miles? How much did you pay? Is it stock or has it been violated?

    Yeah I'm really excited about it. I've got a friend who's been there a few years and he great things to say about the place. They do a lot of cool stuff, and give new hires a relatively large amount of responsibility/freedom pretty quickly. Very happy.

    Haha yeah. Little concerned that the Goodyear Eagle F1 GSs are going to be a bit of a handful in the wet, might end up replacing those even though they're almost new.

    I had those tires for a bit on my WRX. They were fine. (No, they weren't the ones on the car when I totaled it. :D heh)

    If you're going to go skiing I'd look into finding friends with an awd vehicle + snow tires, or investing in snow tires + chains on an extra set of wheels, though.

    Cool. Good to know they're not too bad in the wet. I've actually been in an e36 M3 on summer tires in the snow, so I'm acutely aware of how well that doesn't work. :D I'm not opposed to picking up some cheapo steel wheels and snow tires should I find myself needing them.
