    Hey guys,

    Just wanted to say hello! My name is Josh and I am a huge automotive enthusiast, and have been all of my life. I have been a Ferrari nut since day 1 too. I firmly believe that Ferrari, Porsche and BMW are 3 of the greatest automotive companies ever. I'm sure ill get slammed for Porsche and BMW being on that list, but, oh well haha.

    I belong to about 20 or more other car forums/clubs. So I am not new to any of this or the behaviors.

    Just in case you care, I am 21 (22 in May) and am a car salesman. I was working for a local Mazda dealer in Wilmington, NC where I live, but, recently quit to pursue a job at a BMW dealership in Wilmington. I am still in talks with BMW and don't have the job as of yet. I was kind of tired of the ownership of Mazda so I decided to leave. I also own and operate an automotive website called www.RawAutos.com where I talk about everything automotive. I write quit a bit on there, 1 new article every week and sometimes I will post interesting bits of news in my news section. It is only about 4.5 months old but I love doing it since it has to do with cars.

    I am also a musician. I play Guitar, Piano, Harmonica and sing. I have been playing guitar for about 8 years now and write my own stuff as well as playing Blues, Jazz, R&B, Soul and Rock. I have also studied guitar at a major music school in Tampa, FL for about a year. And I have been formally trained as a guitarist since day 1. I love talking music, playing it, listening to it or even just helping people listen to better music as well...

    I personally do not own any Ferrari's. My father has had the opportunity to purchase a few but has always backed down because he just didn't want the hassle of owning one. We have had a lot of different kinds of cars though, which was always nice. Mostly Corvette's (old and new), BMW's, MB's, Chevy's, Fords and others.

    I currently drive a 2006 Mazda Mazdaspeed 6 and love it. I have had 2 BMW's before -A 1996 328iS and a 2005 330i ZSP (Sport Package) Sedan- but am looking to get into another BMW, simply because I am very passionate about them.

    Well, I guess that's me in a nutshell. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask. Also feel free to visit my site and leave comments there or on here saying your likes and dislikes.

    Thanks guys,

    Josh

    Welcome. I'm sure someone will trade in an old 360 at the BMW dealership and you'll have it for the price of a 6 series.

    Lol.
