2009 BMW M3: Random Pictures Edition

January 13, 2010

What do a cat, an Edmunds fuel mileage log book and a Lexus IS-F have in common? Nothing, really, though they're included in a few eclectic photos I took this week involving our 2009 M3. They follow after the jump.

I caught my neighbor's cat napping on the hood of the M3 on Monday after I had parked the M3 in my driveway. Normally, I like cats, but not when they're putting paw prints on my car. Plus, there's probably something unlucky about having a black cat on a white car. Get off, cat!

I had flipped to the back page of the M3's fuel log notebook for a scrap piece of paper when I discovered the above scrawl. I don't know which editor wrote it, or why. But it's sage advice when driving a $65,000 M3. Probably an apt metaphor for getting through life, too.

I had parked the M3 at my local grocery store last night and, upon returning to the car, found somebody had parked his or her Lexus IS-F next to mine. Coincidence? Probably not. I thought about waiting to find out who the owner was, but then I realized I had better things to do. Note both cars have the white paint/dark wheel combo. (Pictures taken with a cell phone.)
