I was thinking about going to Tire Kingdom (S Tryon), as they said they have the "special" equipment and they offer the 5 year plan for $264... Anyone have experience with them? I figured this would be a good idea because I'm considering lowering the car in the future.

Also, I am installing new shocks right now... should I wait to do the RTABS? I bought powerflex ones but read about waiting for the suspension to settle before installing... is this necessary with the Powerflex tabs?

I'm about 30 minutes from the UNCC campus. The drive is nothing for me. I would definitely be in for joining. I know for a fact a friend of mine that lives nearby as well would be up for it.

I know this will be controversial, but can anyone one help me out/PM me somewhere I can get my car passed with my catless headers? SES light is on because of the o2 sensor reading and i can get foulers in there because it'll hit the sidewalls. Thank you in advance

You should just get Sport Cats installed. I'm not sure where you are in Charlotte, but you might can talk with EuroWise off of East Arrowood in Charlotte. They might could help you figure it all out.

Thanks man, I can't stop driving it. Looking to get in with the CLT e46 scene if there's ever anything going down. NCeuro and carolinarides seem pretty dead as of late.

I haven't heard of any get-togethers aside from the occasional one at NorthLake. However, that's all kinds of different cars, and I'd rather an E46 thing going on, opposed to something where people come in Lamborghinis and Ferraris solely to show off.
