I surprised myself--Brunswick was beautiful and I actually liked it so much that I would like to return, but in the summer. Sure, it was cold and I don't know that I would want to wear twenty layers of clothing everyday, but I definitely put it on my "favorites." Everyone was really nice, and I learned about killer icicles. Neat! Well, not neat like that, but still--neat! I went to Vegas last week for the first time ever. I liked that, too. Def different than anyplace I've ever been. But in a good way.

Who's Brian.
At 50k, you should do the belts, expansion tank, maybe hoses. Def thermostat. You want your cooling system fresh for that bahraini summer heat.
Check your control arm bushings, and ball joints.
Check trailing arm bushings and those other while back there.
Flush brake juice. Once u get over there, upgrade to some higher temp stuff, and ebc green stuff pads.

Fret not tho. When u need part hit my sig, ruben will ship to you, I'm sure.

Glenn,
Did you get the my pic of the new Interlagos Blue ///M3. It just rolled of the enclosed trailer from Jersey. It's still needs to be PDI'd and cleaned before it is assigned as a demo. Come see it sometimes.

Stealership is a little bit harsh you think. Naw just kidding....I do work at the dealership and Glenn and Hitman could confirm this.....Glenn is one of our known and very liked customers in our dealdership. I give him a hook-up as needed pending on items or what needs to be done. I ensure the techs that work on his car treat his baby good. We also work along side with Atlantic Autowerks (Mike and Steve), Racewerks (John) and DP Motorwerks (Dave Pallister). Dave Pallister is one great guy, he also works on my BMW's as well as my co-workers at the dealership. These guys mentioned above are one of our biggest clients and buys parts from us every day. We also work along with Casey Bmw...we also buy parts and vice versa. It's just a big networking of people involved and we watch out for each other. As the dealership is involved we are ranked 2nd in the United States. I guess we are doing something correct? I work in parts and do the front customer and bodyshop orders for our other clients. There is a wholesale dept that deals with some companies like Tune-up plus. Firestone and the other so called jack legs. We all are Fanatics along with you guys...we all like our BMW's but It just sucks when people call us the "STEALERSHIP"! Well...the fact is the dealerships will always be more than the other shops in town. As in parts it may be a OEM BMW part that you get from the aftermarket shops or garages. It may be the same manufacturer selling the same BMW parts but in there own package and a bit cheaper, but it still made for BMW but in a diifrent package. Yes I do agree we are high, this is indusrty standard and that is why there are shop in town that will work on BMW's at a resonable rate. I hope this clears thing up and not to ruffle feathers up. If you guys need anything and advice on how to work on your BMW, do not hesitate to ask me. I will help you the best I can to resolve any issues you may have. All the techs at CF Bmw are certified and go to school on new models to learn the tricks and the trade. My friend followed me from Hall Acura (certified Honda/Acura Tech) and he is now a Certified BMW Tech. He is another guy who works on my car as well for cheap (a six pack) pending on what it is. So...what u think Snik? Have any questions?

Oh, so you're the guy that snitched on Liz, and made her out to be a douche.
Real nice man.
You can save the marketting spill too.

I met steve, cool dude, I'd have em work on my car in a heartbeat if I wasn't such a broke ass.
DP has an impeccable reputation also. Lately tho, I've been doing a lot of trash myself, with my boys help, saved thousands on labor costs already.

Oh, no feathers ruffled man. But its still a stealership, especially when you consider the markup on parts.

No.... as stated above I do customer sales in the front counter and body shop sales. There is a wholeslae dept in the back that only works with secific shops and clients.
Steve is a goog guy and he works for his father and his brother is a tech at BMW. Really good people, I sometimes BS with those guys on a regular basis when the buy stuff.

if you buy electronics from stores, you might as well call them stealerships too.

customers pay over $40 for usb/audio cables. i get them under $5. yes the markup is crazy. but where there is a demand, there is a supply. thats life.
