The M3 has been quite neglected. I noticed that one of the rear (dead winter) tires is worn down the middle. This might signal that I need to get one of the rear trailing arm bushings changed again. I still haven't even changed the front control arm I bought three months ago (you cannot change only the ball joint on these cars). Also, I have been meaning to have the car detailed, or at least waxed. I just haven't had the time and money to do all of this lately. During the week, I barely even use the car.
So basically, I have two cars that I love: one that is constantly being repaired and is essentially for track events, and one high performance street car, which only really gets driven on weekends.

Other than that, Jules has been getting us up and out of bed around 6:30 these days. He is ready for action from that point forward! Alex and my mother have been taking him to wading pools and I think he likes it more and more. We took him to the beach at Cap St-Jacques last weekend, and he only liked it so-so. Also, we got plenty of mosquito bites. It now costs 9$ to park there, and 4,50$ per person, so 18 $. It used to be much cheaper!
Also, it's been hot, and we don't have air conditioning. This means it is not very comfortable in our condo. The new place does not have a/c either, but at least the layout makes it possible to install a system without too many complications.
Here are some photos of the cool cars that can be seen in Montreal these days:
