yes, having lived in Toronto for 25 years -- started living in Toronto when I attended UofT -- I know where Oakville is.

Last November on a trip north, I had the misfortune to deal with the BMW dealer on the QEW in Oakville ... (forget the name) -- great service, great to deal with, the misfortune was that I blew the rad out of my 540i/6. My full throttle acceleration from a stop on Winston Churchill snapped the pipe that goes into the rad right off ... that and the 100,000 miles that I have on that car.

We lived in the Port Credit area -- just south and west of the QEW and 10 -- for 10 years or so. Prior to that in Erin Mills.

My M5 made its inaugural trip to Toronto on the July 1/4 holiday -- going up to visit my parents at their summer place north of Parry Sound.

Just for fun I picked up the Canadian NAV disk for the trip -- coverage gets pretty thin north of Toronto -- many times I heard "you are leaving the digitized map area".
