  1. Like many others, this is my first post on here for a very long time. I have been glued to the news since Friday morning (here in California), and have been in a state of shock ever since. This morning while reading the Herald online, I saw Atta's name as one of the deceased that is being honoured, and immediately logged in here. Although I never had the privilege to meet him in person, he was always a great contributor in here. This is heartbreaking. RIP Atta! My thoughts are with his family and friends in this utterly devastating time.
  2. Even though I haven't lived in NZ for a few years, and haven't owned a BMW for the same length of time, it was great to catch up with one of the other original Bimmersporters in San Francisco. Here is a photo of Ollie and me at the top of Twin Peaks in San Francisco. This ordinarily gives a great view of the city from the top of a hill, but unfortunately the fog rolled in and we saw a sea of white (the second photo shows what the view is actually like on a good day).

    RIP Cosmos

    I just saw this. Very sad news indeed. He was a passionate guy who wore his enthusiasm on his sleeve. The world needs more people like that.

    Toyota GT86 - opinions?

    I read this the other day in a waiting room. They give the Subaru BRZ a pretty good review: http://www.motortrend.com/features/perform...st_drivers_car/

    Toyota GT86 - opinions?

    I've only ever seen the Subaru version here. I'm not sure if there is a Toyota version on sale here (but then I've never looked either). I think for a small car, they would be pretty good.

    My new pride and joy.

    Congratulations Greg.
  8. Rent is significantly cheaper than NZ, and most full time salaried employees get paid time off and sick leave (althuogh not as much as NZ).I struggle to find anything here that is not significantly cheaper than in NZ (at least where I am), although I don't like having to pay for Kiwifruit. Whoever mentioned Costco. It is awesome, we go about once a month, and you can buy anything you want there for next to nothing.

    Schnitzer E36

    Shouldn't the fact that the seller can't even spell Schnitzer be your first clue that they are full of sh*t!

    Tattoos.

    And I felt like I had a really mild sunburn for a few days afterwards.

    Tattoos.

    The CEO of the company I work with has exceptionally high standards, and deems them to be unprofessional to have exposed in a professional environment. While he rules the roost and pays my wages, I'm happy to comply. My tattoo is far enough up my forearm that even if my shirt sleeve rides up a bit it does not show.

    Tattoos.

    When I got mine, I was talking to the guy doing mine (the owner of Bonehead Tattoo) and asked him what he won't do, and he said anything deemed racist or gang related. Interestingly enough he also said that they won't tattoo anyone they suspect has been drinking, due to potential liability issues.

    Tattoos.

    In the company I work for, and in particular the CEO, yes, but not of the people I work with. I'm based on a Government client site, and am expected (by my company) to wear a suit and tie every day, even though the people I work with do not.
