^ Awesome ride. I'd totally sell off my xi for that car but its too far out of my price range. I'm sure it'll go fast though!

Anyone know of a place in town that can press out old control arm bushings and press the new ones in? I have all the parts but no press.

I got a shop by my work to do it for $35. Better than buying or pressed ones online.

So you gained 5/32 in tread depth by driving to Duluth and back? Profit.

ANyone have experience with FrozenRotors in Burnsville, MN?


I'm contemplating sending my rotors off to them and be machined/slotted as well as getting Hawk HPS pads. Was quoted $56 per rotor to have the slotted and cryo-dipped.

Well gentlemen (and maybe women too?), the time has come that I sell my E46 and move on to a larger car (and one that's autotragic as well ). Posting up in classifieds.

2004 330xi, 126k, complete maintenance records from 33k to present, everything up to date.
