From Main to Side Chick

This was supposed to be my beater.  My cheap, everyday, grimy BMW that I could drive daily without concern.  Now shes the mistress I only see in warm weather, and only usually on the weekends.  What changed?  She went through some cosmetic and mechanical upgrades … From Main to Side Chick
