I asked about getting hood painted for my E46, they told me about ~$300 which is lower than other estimates I got around Milwaukee.

Check them out!

Plus the owner of the shop is a BMW enthusiast.
Not bad. Probably $200-250 for a bumper then?

I would but I need new front tires first that are sticky enough to not understeer everywhere I go. (just replaced the rears when one decided to shred on the way home one day) Also need a new winter car. And winter tires for said winter car. Maybe next spring?

I'd be up for a drive one of these weekends though.

Does anyone in the Madison area have an airbag reset tool? It would be great to get this code erased. It popped up after replacing a window regulator and has been on for some time.

If Carsoft can reset it, which it appears it can, I should be able to help now. I just got my stupid cable working for coding work.

That would be awesome! I will hit you up once it's back on the ground again so we can meet up. Currently on jack stands doing a rear control arm and a tie rod, potentially oil filter housing seal as well.

Just saw this on Bimmerforums -
http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum....php?t=1892417

It's apparently for locals only, but they mentioned it should be possible for an extra cost to paint and ship out the bumpers. Either way, a hell of a lot cheaper than going to a body shop. Sadly, they don't have Z4M bumpers. (no one makes an aftermarket replica it seems)

Saturday for sure i will be going for a drive. Probably the shiocton run since i know a decent spot and Friday or Sunday i will go on another run. Possibly using the ultimate drive app to see what's around. If anybody is interested in coming to any feel free. If we get a group together (which isn't likely with my short notice post) i was thinking of meeting up at red lobster (i need to get in before endless shrimp is done) that way we can catch up with one another, get some energy, the get some driving in.

I'm busy the whole day Saturday, but myself and a friend would probably be up for something Friday or Sunday.

We should make this for the Kettle Moraine, as we've already determined there's not much for roads up there.
