At 7am, it will not be hard to find us.
I cannot access the Facebook page at work but I think it was at AMC theater...

At any rate, we will be the only Bimmers Drifting around the parking lot that early.

Someone want to take me for a ride/ drive an e46m3. Trying to decide between that or a 135i.

Located in white lake.

Good NOWO show for the FIRST time. Need more vendors. The number of people who showed up in bad weather was impressive. I suggest adding some type of seminars. Subjects could be maintenance, speed equipment, & other mods. Invite shops (non-dealers) to attend. Local shops should come & sell their expertise. Might have better attendance by other from owners who understand it's about Volkswagen.

Did not make it to NOWO, but I heard it was a great turnout. Hope to make it next year if they hold it again.

NoWo was a awesome success, thanks for everyone who came showed up! Next year will be even bigger with more sponsors and hopefully more cars.

But anyway, I been running into troubles with my car recently, I think the Oil gasket cover is leaking, I've tried fixing it myself but don't want to F*ck it up sooo...I was wondering if anyone could refer me to car shop that works on BMW's and doesn't completely rip me off/ does quality work. anyone have any suggestions? I live near Troy and would be willing to make a drive for someone who is good. Please let me know!

NoGuru & markydee11:

Thanks, markydee11 for raising the question & NoGuru for the answer. I have a number of sensor problems & the BMW dealer is getting rich while the mechanic isn't doing that well.

Temp sensor registers minus 40c. Found the source the shield ahead of the left front tire is shredded & tore up the wire. Need a new sensor & figure out where the other end connects. Replaced brakes & brake sensors; but they still register on the dashboard - think it be just a re-set of the codes? New dealer installed alternator & the battery light comes on in the morning goes out after 5 minutes or so. The battery is about 3 years old.

Waterford not a bad drive.

'02' 325ci 5 speed manual with 152,670 daily driver. Love it.
