Thank you sir. I got motivated and detailed the car before the shoot. No clay bar though. Just scratch remover and polish.

yeah, well surfing the net and after talkin to a few ppl they are saying it might be a programming issue, i just had my smg computer re-flashed @ the dealership when i took it in for a checkup, there was a service call in for it etc.. if thats the case then its going back.. hopefully thats the case, however there is a smg tranny on the forums right now for 2k w/ only 2500 miles on it

thats great news actually, with your car being a mt6 its not that bad of a install to get it replaced, also i did some looking around and saw a bosh starter for 160 + ship. hopefully this fixes it, did you end up paying the tow to get it there also?

I got plans for yor ride when I pick it up from transport back to the U.S. I talked to Brian about your trunk and he'll see if he can clean it up a bit for you. Other than that I'll have my guys here pressure wash your car and get a master tech give it once over. This is the same master tech who welded my rear subframe back to my chassis. I'll tell u later...long story. Just keep in touch with me and let me know when U plan to get your ride stateside.
Take care
Speaking of trunks.. have you heard anything about my new 135i trunk lid being shipped from Germany? I'm having the 135i repaired at Phillips mercedes and the guy, Alan Howe, said he ordered the new parts through your work. My 135i has been off the road since being rear ended March 19th.. and it's killing me.

I might have to order a seibon carbon fiber trunk lid to get me by for awhile. Thanks!
