    Hey welcome back to the USA!
    btw with all this foreign land driving did you have to change the rear lamps to have orange blinkers?

    Welcome!

    A good start would be to go to L&J's (the old place by the graveyard) for dinner. That's where I fell in love with a Mexican girl.

    I took European Delivery and drove through four countries in my limited edition Universe Blue CLA 250.

    No, due to the Status of Forces Agreement between the U.S. and Germany, it isn't necessary for us to modify our cars to meet their specifications except for running the right tires during the right seasons.

    OK thats good to know ... the tires part is common sense considering the temperature swings they get.

    Yeah it would get a little on the cold side. I just picked my car up in Dallas on Friday and I forgot how much fun it was to drive. Too bad it's going back in the garage for another 9 months here soon. I have a 3 yr old car with only 20k on the clock.

    Just saw your post. I haven’t been on here in awhile. I’m on Bliss but go to the east side on the weekends.
