Naw bro...the E46 was a fucking turd...the guy didn't want me to fully drive it until we were headed to the bank to pay him. He tried to tell me all german cars drive like shit like his...I almost lost it on him. I walked back to the dealership from the bank to drive myself home.

I drove through the countrysides around Munich, then drove to Stuttgart, then to Zurich. I think anyone who is into cars should visit the BMW, Mercedes, and Porsche museums. You would especially like the BMW one, as well as the BMW welt. I didn't rent a car in Italy because it seemed like a huge pain to park there

Exhaust looks and sounds great! Those welds and flanges tho.
Man, I never been to Europe. If I ever get to do that I'll definitely need to visit those museums. Does Ferrari have a museum in Modena? (or where-ever they make their cars...)

Even better if I'm in a financial situation to take Euro delivery....but maybe just rent a car and do some of those bucket list drives!!

I'm telling you...
initially, he let me test drive it but only wanted me to go down the block and slow because he didn't have insurance on it.
He was nice...but in the end, everyone selling you a car is nice. He was trying to stick me with it. I was smart enough that time to
have my Acura bud do a PPI and put it on a lift and he was all wide eyed and NO MOTHERFUCKER what are you doing...I was like,
okay cool, so buy it anyway because I loved the lipstick on a pig!

Yes, Stelvio was featured in Top Gear as one of the best roads in the world for a gear head to drive. There is so much to see man, I planned it well in advance and still didnt see as much as I wanted. Italy was tight and I spent two days there with the car but the place was so beautiful I barely drove, car was parked at hotel and we went on boat tours since we stayed next to Lake Como. Thanks on the exhaust! I'm loving it.

Jesus, J. That's a red flag if I ever saw one

I kinda get it though, on the other hand, maybe he doesn't want people wasting his time. Buuuuut...
