My wife decided I needed a new hobby so she got me the Furutech Destat III curling stone. It also removes the static from my LPs and various stereo pieces!

Sort of a gift to myself- a 2017 BMW M3.

Here’s a link of the M3. It’s a pretty powerful car, unfortunately, my driving skill is not up to par. It’s has the competition package with 444hp and dct transmission. I am still getting to used to car. It’s got way too many buttons and features. My last m3 was an E36 that has much less power, but was simple and fun to drive.

I hope the link works. I have not used it for many years.
