i dont regret my 245/40 setup BUT i was going to move down to 235's because i wanted to bring my camber back up quite a bit(-2.5). since your fenders are still untouched id recommend going 235's, my .02

That's cool about getting it through school grant. Do you use it daily? If so, then an upgrade is probably due.

I want a Fit myself. I'd slap a small turbo kit on and have lotsa fun.

I'm on the last of the nibs it came with. I'm surprised they lasted as long as they did, lol. Apparently A LOT of people have issues with accelerated wear.

As they say in cooking, your hands are the best utensils.

Hi SGC. I'm trying to get the caravan together for Bimmerfest and Im wondering if any of you guys have hotel suggestions. I was looking at the Marriott in Old Town Passadena, but it seemed expensive. Then there was the Marriott in Pasadena/Monrovia that was quite a bit less. Can anyone chime in on whether the distance or the neighborhood is an issue?


Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I want something affordable, with a lot of parking, and maybe with close by amenities like shops, food, and carwashes

Thanks
