Hahahaha. The Civic kicks major ass though. I get mid 30s without even trying. Because the car has 206k the clutch is starting to slip, so I'm going to swap in an OEM equivalent... Cost? $200 bucks (maybe less) with the extra tools I need to buy. Civic maintenance FTW.


Next year hopefully I can start looking at cars again. I'm pushing for 2011+ Mustang GT, 370Z, or something else.

Unfortunately I think my BMW days may be over. Not because I don't like the car, but I can't afford a low mileage BMW, and the accountant in me won't let me lease a car.

Moving to Louisville at the end of the month, hows the meet activity during the winter months? Any local BMW/Euro/car forums I should check into?

There is a forum called 502streetscene.com that is always going. That is an all car forum, but there are some bimmers on it. I don't think there are any BMW speciafic forums other than the sub forums on here. I'm not sure if they do C&C here anymore during the winter though.

Also, go onto Facebook and search OKI BMW and become a member. It is a group of BMW owners in Ohio Kentucky and Indiana.

I know this is a bump from a terribly long time ago but, I was talking to my friend who just bought an E90, and we were discussion where to get our tint's at. He said because we have BMW's we couldn't get a quote that is lower than $200. He has even asked around and gotten quotes as much as $250. Would your tint shop be able to quote me lower Kirby?

Thanks for the heads up man, I joined the OKI BMW page, and I think I have OG status on 502 but its been years since I've been on there! Also would any of you guys want to do a meet anytime after Christmas, say late afternoon New Years Day?

Only if those guys would move it down south a bit, I'm 1 and a half hours away.

They don't quote based on the make, just the type; sedan, coupe, pickup, SUV... Just call and ask for a quote on a 4-door sedan. My $137 was 2 years ago on a 2-door coupe (vert), so they may have gone up slightly.

Also, don't ask for 20% all around on the phone. It's technically illegal, but rarely enforced. If you ask in person, and don't come off looking like a punk, they'll hook you up.

Lastly, they don't take reservations. Show up first thing in the morning and wait your turn. Monday Through Friday might not be too bad, but Saturday sucked. I was turned away the first time I went because they were booked solid within 15 minutes. The second time, I showed 10 minutes before they were scheduled to open and got out before lunch.

Hey local people Im looking for an e46 to buy. Must be a 5-speed, preferably black on black or gray/white/silver on black.
Let me know if you guys see anything. I was considering going to an e90 or e60 but I got scared away.

I braved the rain last month but didn't see any other E46s! I parked next to one of the few other BMWs there, a nice E30.

I was hoping for more of a weekly or biweekly meet maybe and if anyone wants to start a inst-a-meet I'm usually down, PM me for my number.

thats because OF the rain--they changed the C&C to Saturdays this year the first couple have been really packed, with the rain exception--they've been great so far.
