    So...Merry Christmas one and all!

    Question - anyone out there find any gifts bearing the Roundel marque under your tree this holiday? Speaking for myself...I was pleasantly surprised to find a scale die-cast model of a '96 M3!! Very cool indeed :D :D ! And to top it off the gift was from my father-in-law! The man knows what I like... :p

    So let's hear about your BMW gifts if ya got 'em...

    Nope Sunny Frigid Florida. Just as a side note, my BMW salesman was from Germany and I had to ask him what the sign in your sig said. Sure was glad it was clean.

    Santa failed to deliver the only roundelized item on my wish list.

    I reckon I'm on the naughty list. Nothing new.

    Well, I guess you're just one of God's special little babies!

    Well, thaaaaat's niiiiice. . . WE ALL HATE YOU, of course. . . .

    Okay, maybe "hate" is too strong a word. Envy's much better!

    I did give my neighbor a BMW thumb drive that looks like what passes for a key these days. . . .

    Wasn't that a press kit?

    I got myself a new set of wheel studs. After 10 years I think it's time to replace my old ones.
    New S/S brake lines just because they look cool and I like supporting Bimmerworld. :)
    2 liters of brake fluid. You can never have enough brake fluid.

    From the dealer, caliper bushings and rebuild kits.
    Stopping is good. :)

    For my wife, MINI ;) checkerboard mirror covers and new mats.
    Needed gray for a 2003 Cooper S but already NLA! Got black.

    It was a day or two before Christmas, but BMW sent me a free 2GB USB drive the size of a credit card. The actual drive slides out of a pocket on the card, and the front has a nice, raised roundel. It contains some BMW promotional material but still has 1.6GB free.

    Does this count? :D

    The notable Satch is a "re-gifter".

    LOL :D !! Yeah, I've seen pics of that word before actually going to Munich and it cracked me up. That word means "Exit" I believe, and another one ("Einfhart" possibly?) means "Entrance".

    I did buy a few things from the CCA shop with my Christmas money, mainly the boxers I've been contemplating getting since I saw them :D
