That's what I was planning in case no one had one I could use. There is tranny software but I don't plan on getting because no matter how great the software is, there will always be limitations for automatics on an autox track layout.

Spring compressor is a tricky thing. I'd take the assembly out and have a shop take it apart. That's how I did mine.
Thanks for the link Pat, didn't know they rented this stuff out via mail.

xixixi -
I emailed you the autocross vid and pictures from the meet. I didn't get any pics at the meet because it was raining and was afraid my camera would get wet. I'll check to see if any of my friends got pics and will upload some later

I got pretty soaked at the end but had a fun time. We had a pretty good STL showing if you counted the supra guys. To bad Pat and Dave couldn't make it, we were out numbered by the supras. All in all there were 8 cars that showed up at QT, the 300z guy left though (not really sure who he was). I think the meet had 200+ cars and there was a good BMW showing after we met up with Mike, to bad I couldn't find parking near you guys.

Mike - it was good to meet you in person, let me know when your back in STL we can hit the autocross sometime.

Here are a couple of shots before we left Wentzville:

My buddy's Supra looks so much better with his wheels and lowering his coilovers.


Here's your car, wish I got better shots of the 135i


I tried to get a group shot but failed and missed 3 cars in this shot

Thanks for making the trip guys. Wish the weather would have been better. Hope you all had fun. I assume I am going to see you all at the European Autoshow in June at Plaza Frontenac....

His wheels look amazing on the 1er. He takes them off for autox and runs the stock. I really want to get the same ones but stuff keeps on coming up and I really want to pay off my car first, ModBargains was having a deal on them not too long ago. So did anyone see him do a little "off-roading" on 70?

generic- I will definitely be up for the autocross, I am going to be studying for the Bar most of the summer but hopefully I will find some time to make it out. Hopefully I will pass the bar and be able to fix everyone's tickets...

he was behind me in line. i saw him drop back a lot... with the rain and everything it was hard to see. The pack kinda broke up and he ended up in the rear not sure if it was on purpose or not. I kept moving around in the pack to race much faster cars than mine and the mustangs exhaust was so loud i couldn't stand to be behind that car!!! All events work allows me to attend i'll be there.
