Will consider the show, it could be a good time just to have a group of us in it. I'd say ahead of it we should do a smaller meetup to do a proper detail/wash etc.

18'' ADR M-sports 8.5'' with 235/40 fronts and 9.5'' 245/40 rears. Maybe, if it doesn't sell in two weeks.

Anyone know of any reputable transmission rebuild shops in the area? Looking at picking up an e39 M5 that's popping out of first...trying to see if it's worth the gamble.

not worth it, from what I've been told. I was gonna buy a 6 speed from a race shop that had problems going into 3rd, and parts for these transmissions are non-existant. the dealership couldnt even get me a 3rd gear syncro. Although that was in pittsburgh, I wonder if jeff could get me one.

If the car has a short shift kit, that may be the only reason for the popping out of 1st problem.
