Well this is the first year where I don't really want anything for Christmas - I know hard to believe but I just don't think I want / need anything. Sure there's a list as long as my arm - new Camera, Xbox 360, nintendo WII, bullet cam, carmount, new sat nav etc.

But I can't really say I need any of them, certainly the games consoles are hard to justify as I hardly ever play one anymore. A new camera, again nothing wrong with my current one (I've taken 11k photos with it). Satnav is slightly more justifiable, but on slightly. etc etc.

Am I getting too sensible or am I just already spoilt ?

To be honest while writing this I've thought of something - some good weather so I can drive my B8 ! but thats probably a long shot - and thinking about it the B8 could have been my early Xmas present anyway !

So anyway getting to the point, see if you can persuade me I need something - tell me what you want / are planning to get for Christmas !

Already got a 360 and a Wii, lol. Mi X-Mas wishes would be to big to ask for them. So I will get some smaller presents, like games. Laughing

Besides that, I do have to say there is also nothing I really need to survive. Think I wouldnt drive an Alpina if it was so.

@V8 Ego: I wish you good look, just got a new job this week that I will start in January.

@jsnell: Dont be to exited about Wii Sports, its fun but its just a bunch of free games that come with the console, no perfect simulations.

All I want for Christmas is a computer that will let me transfer video to DVD really simply and first time - I have 3 useless DVD's already and the laptop/camcorder are about to feel my fury Evil or Very Mad

I just want a pair of M5 mirrors and a later steering wheel for my B10, those would really make my Christmas. Very Happy

I don't know what I really want for my X'mas. I assume this is the time for the children only but not for our old folks like you and me. I may look a bit grey and blue at the moment I know. To me I have my B10, my family, my health and finally all you guys out there like me to enjoy our beloved Alpina.

Que me... Very Happy

Gotta admit though, this is the first year that's I've noticed I'm not counting the days down to Xmas. Certainly the first year I've not had an advent calender, and I overall just don't seem quite as excited. Old age already Smile However, come Chirstmas Eve I'm sure I won't be able to get to sleep, as is customary on the eve of B'day/Xmas for me.

Well, I've asked the rosy cheeked beared one for another R/C car to add to my collection. This one would be to race at my local club each week.

Santa has it easy on deciding for my goodies - 4 wheels is all I need Laughing

Amen to that...

That said, if santa's listening (and I have been a good boy this year) I could quite fancy one of those new Ipod thingies with a screen that can watch videos.

I'd love the new PS, but with two small kids my PS2 hasn't even made it out of the box since last Xmas!
