A drive through Missouri will just end with us all having cracked subframes, you can contest to that Kevin. Just playing, but for real though. If someone puts something together I'm down for enjoying some nice weather.

wassup, from KC too. Prairie Village to be more specific.

Anyone ever been to saddlers?

There are some good roads out near Lawrence, but I dont know where exactly. I went on a Porsche Club of America drive out in that direction. I think we topped out at around 115

The local KC club puts on an event at Saddlers every year and always has a great time. This wouldn't be a bad idea for a meet. Meet, go garts, and then move on to something else.

The highway near Lawrence you speak of is highway 4 I believe. We take this route on bike sometimes. It's a very twisty road but has varrying road conditions.

Very funny Kev, you know me just another poser. Atleast this poser has a car to drive, lol.

I thought Columbia was farther away, 1.5 hours isn't to bad but I have a softball tourny that weekend.

To bad you can't make it to MAM this Friday, should be a good time.

I really wish I could go, but I am supposed to go out to Ft. Riley and do some firing of the artilary guns or some BS. We need to meet up soon, you guns need to help me pick out what I am going to do to my car. With the discounts I should be able to get some nice shi*... Also do either of you two know anythnig about transmission swaps? I have read the diy and it doesnt seem to complicated, a lot of work, but other than that...

Yes I want a manual swap, as long as we have all the parts it just nuts and bolts man. The only thing I question is ECU, BMW may re-flash it for us for manual but IDK...

Did you read the DIY I think you just unplug the transmission part of the ecu and have BMW flash it.

I imagine the swap would be easy (maybe not easy but........) but I have no clue about the ecu. Depending on the year I know that the ecu become integrated into everything and cam become a pain to deal with.

Why not just sell the car and find the same car in a manual? This would be much easier and probably cheaper.
