Officially a Nevadan

That was much easier than I thought.  Go down to the DMV, give them some paperwork, sit back and watch them punch keys on a computer.  Get a new picture taken and a new set of plates handed to you.  Out the door in less than an hour.

Now I’ll have to tackle the boring task of updating my address with any company that has my address.  That includes car insurance, medical insurance, credit cards, bank accounts, cell phone, payroll, etc.  It will be tedious, but eventually everything will be set up in Nevada.

The move is a little more rough than I had imagined.  There were some unexpected permitting issues regarding the house that I bought, so I’m currently working with the city of Reno to get everything cleared up.  Everything will be up to code in no time flat.

Its great knowing I have a permanent address.  A permanent place to call my own.  A place I can store my stuff without worry.  A space I can use however I please.  Being a homeowner is a great feeling.

With so much bouncing around, its a nice feeling knowing I own a place that is staying put.  I can go wherever I want, and this place will be here waiting for me when I come back.

    Nice M5. There’s a great write up on the history of the M5 in the most recent Car & Driver magazine.

    My friend has owned beemers for decades. I recently drove his black 2004 545i 6 speed manual and was very impressed. That thing has some nice power (325hp) and rides great. I didn’t like the idrive system though. I ended up making a random phone call when all I wanted to do was change the radio station!

    Before that he had a 2000 540i manual tranny. That had 282hp and ran almost identical 0-60 and 1/4 mile times as his higher horsepower 545i.

    I got to drive the 540i for a week while he was away. I loved that car.

    How do you like the M5? It looks like an E39?

    Yeah, its an e39 – the best looking in my opinion. The M5 is still my favorite car that I have ever driven. Really smooth, clean power, handles like a dream, and is so beautiful on the inside and outside. No complaints from me, other than the cost of ownership.
