    Flying up to Chicago to pick up my E92 M3 this weekend.

    Anything fun/cool to check out on my drive back to Texas?

    Guess this is a little late but what did you see/do?

    Apparently there are some good hotdog places. Other than that...

    I just drove back and stopped for gas/food/pussy.

    What was supposed to be a 16 hour drive turned into 27. Some of that was the detour to Iowa to visit a girl I met in Houston while she was visiting her bf. The rest was due to snow, ice, and no alignment after a suspension swap.

    I made it back without crashing the car, but I did hit something that fell off an 18 wheeler (I think it was a block of ice). It didn't look too bad, but when I got back I took the car to Alex Noll for an alignment and saw a lot more damage underneath the car.

    Needless to say, my brand new to me M3 is getting a new front bumper, oil cooler, ducting, and under-body felt tray crap. Maybe more, who knows.

    I should have just had the car shipped Click here to enlarge

    Agreed.

    I just spoke to the liability adjuster and she said the damage adjuster is going to call me within 24-48 hours to set up a time to go and look at the car.
