    Hey guys,

    I apologize for the short notice, but I thought I'd make some of you CAFE area members up to date with a little meet/dinner @ P.F. Changs tomorrow evening. Team Polizei's own Alex Roy is doing his "The Driver" book tour and is going to make a stop in Charlotte on his way back. We'll be gathering at ~9 PM. PM or post if you've got any questions.

    For those of you that aren't aware of who Alex is, there's about a million videos online of his footage through multiple Gumball, Bullrun, etc. XC rallies. www.gumball144.com

    He's definitely a character. Pretty cool that he is making a stop in Charlotte!

    BTW- if it makes you happy to know, I'm thinking of swapping out my Z for an E39 M5 in the spring. Not only am I tired of putting up with Nissan's crap, I need a more comfortable car for when I go off to college because the closest school I want to go to is 550 miles away :p.

    EDIT- it's just a preliminary thought. Also in consideration are STi, 335i (I doubt it, though... too expensive. Need a scholarship for this one!), etc.

    I think you'll choose the E39 M5 route after tonight's gathering. They're into the lower $30k range too.

    They were in the low 30s/high 20s when I was looking at buying a car last year, which led me away. Now they are mid/low 20s. Exciting.

    For a 100,000+ mile example, yeah.

    On another note, the event was quite fun and it quite an honor to meet Alex Roy and see the Polizei M5. I'll host pictures of the event later this evening.

    Now for a proper follow-up...

    I must say, of all the 'almost celebrities'(Most of them having some ties with motorsports) within the automotive world that I've had a chance to meet, Alex was easily the most entertaining and down-to-Earth.

    Anyway, I'm glad things worked out for our little GTG...Maybe we'll try this again on a different scale when he comes back through NC.

    Here's a link to some of the not so great pictures I managed to snap...
