So who's volunteering to make the drive?  I'm on the north side of Atlanta for the record laugh.  

Discussing with the Mrs.  It's a bit more challenging, she's home in Atlanta working and I just landed in San Francisco for a race weekend.

Having just purchased the mighty G35 6MT here a few weeks ago (weeks?  Month?   Well - recently... ) even I just googled a plane ticket from Charlotte to Manchester (super cheap one way - like 200 bucks cheap).

This is a great car @ a great price.    I've regretted selling my '99 540i for a while....

I need to stop looking at this forum and stick to advrider where I can't afford the BMW's they advertise....   :)

Well, you all have a few weeks before I take it out of the garage for a detail, photoshoot, and release to the masses.  I'm pretty chill (a.k.a. lazy) about things like this, so just let me know.  It's not listed anywhere except here, and I don't intend to do otherwise for a little while... doesnt help that it just simply will.not.stop.snowing around here lately either.

I should note that this is, BY FAR, the cleanest underside of any BMW I've EVER owned... and I've bought... a lot.  There is zero rust or corrosion. 

Nobody believed me!

Was working in Laconia all summer and even got to ride my motorcycle all over up there.  It really is a beautiful place

I shouldn't have looked at prices for flights.

A manual trans as well. Boy that is a pretty car and here I am in CT. I definitely need to not get this car. I had a 97 and I've done that and I shouldn't want to go back, but man.

Hmm... I can drive to Cleveland in a day. The big question is "how fast can I sell my G35 sedan?"

The car came from Cleveland!  Haha.  It was actually a really pleasant Fly and Drive-  not too long to be super scary if crap went wrong, and a good long time to get to know the car intimately.

annnd Sold to a GRM member/lurker who I hope makes a thread documenting their journey with her.  I have to admit, it struck me profoundly watching it drive away...  but I'm excited to get my 2 post lift into my now empty-ish garage, and get going on a bigger project.  The 540 was just so damn clean and reliable, that it wasn't enough for me to enjoy wrenching on... because i never had to wrench on it.


Anyways, thanks GRM.  As always, you deliver the goods.
