I take all mine to Premier Autosound out here in Churchland. I've also heard good things of Atlantic Shoreline.

East coast window tint in VA Beach is good, went with my friend to tint his 2004 Corolla S sedan, it was $160 for all but front 20%. They did a very good job, if I was to get mine done I would go there.

Action shot from Schuh Syndikat, it was a WHOLE day of mountain road driving... it was amazing. Will definitely be attending every year I am able to without a doubt.

Hey guys, just picked up a 2011 e70 X5 35d so looking to get rid of our 08 528i. I work with lots of foreign nationals and had a ukranian in town for a couple of months, long story short, he bought the car rebuilt in TN and when he left I picked it up after having Dan at RW check it over. I got into it around 78k and it just turned 91k this month. Black on black with every package except sport. Coded for the usual good stuff. Just not looking to keep two cars on the insurance anymore.

It was rebuilt due to an accident which involved a fatality and some other crazy TN law. Have had 0 issues with the car and its my DD until now. Not looking to scam anyone just done want it anymore. No issues with a loan or insurance as I took out a loan for it and just looking to get what I owe. PM me for details if interested, its just over 11k

Here is when I had it on CL

If anyone is selling an e30 for less than 1500 let me know. Doesn't have to be perfect, or even run

Just installed the matte black "stealth" grilles from ECS... and holy crap what a difference. Completely updated the look of the car and makes the yellow high beams stand out even more. Now I just need to hurry up and order my wheels lol.

Anyone have the wrenches to raise up my rear about .5"? Or maybe a full 1". It has GC coilovers all the way around but I don't have the spanner for it. Beers and burgers will be had for anyone who helps lol

Nice. Ordered the "arm-rest delete" center console from ECS today... can't wait to actually enjoy having a 5 speed instead of having to limp wrist through shifts with an arm rest in the way.

I hate NOT having an armrest. One of the first "mods" I do to all of my vehicles if they come without. I cannot stand not being comfortable while driving.

No. Paint correction. Polish. Compound. Wax. Removed spoiler to get that repainted.
Tried to add a clear brah. But it's cheap and thick and wasn't cut right.
So we trashed it.

Heheh. They gave me a good deal since it's half a car. No roof and the hood was just done a few months ago and blended with the fenders. So they really just had to work at the sides and back.

My GC's have allen socket head bolts that I loosen and spin the collar, usually by hand after loosening the siezed fronts... no spanners required.

Anyone have a spanner for KWs? I have the V1s incase that matters. Looking to adjust mine as well. I want to play around with ride height and see what I can do without messing up my lip on these poorly maintained roads. I believe it's an 80mm spanner that I'd need. Anyone?
