All I want is for **** to work out, is that too much to ask?
Anybody have an extra long needle nose plier I can borrow tonight or tomorrow?
Also, an automotive stethoscope would make you my hero, but the needle nose is more necessary.

how long is extra long?

Cory, my car has sympathy for yours. Blew my radiator expansion tank today, girlfriend was "learning" manual driving today in a parking lot up the street, and it popped and spewed coolant everywhere... got it home barely before it got to hot that I would have to park it for a little bit for it to cool down before limping the rest of the way home, coasted most the way down colley and my street with the engine off to be honest. No power steering sucks. but got everything replaced today and is back up and running fine... might have found an OEM bike rack local that I will be checking out tomorrow hopefully.

The longer the better, but if the nose portion is longer than 6" we'd be getting somewhere.

I love those forgeline wheels.

Thanks for the complements on the car. I think I have a dude that wants to trade spacers. The offset on the wheels are Rear et22 + 12mm spacer for et 10 and the front is et38 +12mm spacer for et 26. Hopefully I can get those 15mm and run them in the rear.

Swish what plates do you have on your car? Where in the area do you live? I have seen 2 grey verts lately on mercury on my way home from work. Saw a red e46 m3 vert yesterday pulling a U turn on Hampton Roads Center Pkwy yesterday to get on the interstate. Didnt look familiar.

Yesterday I spotted a white 540i with and M badge? Rooling on 264 headed towards 64. Looked clean but was thrown off with the M

also spotted a e46 M3, charcoal grey with what seemed to be black rims on Oceana base. Looked nice but the tall spoiler was just a no go for me

Both in my squadron. The 540 with the M badge is an officer who knows nothing about cars, I think it even may be an auto. Probably bought it that way from a salesman who convinced him it was an m5.

second car is a guy in the tech shop, bought it steel gray, with the black rims. got hit in the pass door and wanted something darker, so he resprayed the whole car. I didnt know he already bought the spoiler though. That man is up to his ears in debt, everytime he gets a pay raise, he goes out and finances something new.


Keep thinking I'm seeing ron in his m3, but it has a cinnamon interior. Happens almost daily on holland rd by dam neck. The guy even looks like ron.

sounds like your running 9s or 9.5s out back... how wide are they?
i wanna see it when youre done, see how much more room the M3s have to work with up front.. ive got a pretty good idea what the rears can taake. Like when i get one, i plan on putting my BBS wimz on it, but since theyre et45 18x10, i think i'll need 25mm spacers for the right look.

Just don't order Perrier. I've never been charged so much for such a small bottle (even at fancy restaurants).

I live 1.5 miles from the place, but I'm unsure if I'll have the car ready or not by then so I can't say add me (unless someone can come up with a really long pair of needle nose pliers and I'm able to get the vac timing advance line back on, right now I'm just counting on one of the guys at European Cars of Williamsburg to bring buy tools after he gets off work - btw, a shout out, them's good people there, and one of the only shops I've ever been to that did work on my car that did NOT leave me saying "want it done right, got to do it myself")

yeah i noticed the temp plates on the 540 and got a quick view of the M3 as it rolled by while i was the bank. I know what car your talking about. The guy works a FRC, its clean, has temp plates too as if he just got it

I have the Virginia Williamsburg plate (I think that's what its called) Red White and Blue type. I've been on Mecury a few times the past couple of weeks... I live off of HCRP by Harpersville.
