Speaking of which, I need to check on AJ.

ZOMGWTFteabaggingburger, I don't even want to know. I'm not sure we'll take an intern with such a dirty mind.

They hired me, I'm pretty sure they can cope with you. What kind of courses are you taking? MSFT has more variety than my new company, it might be easier to find something for you there.

My Ride: 2000 323Ci Cabriolet
Hi, my name is Trevor and I'm a bimmerholic...

Well, O.K. truth be known, I'd never driven a bimmer until I bought my 2000 323 CiC, and now I'm addicted!

So, 21 years old with 11 years of experience, 3 kids, 1 wife; live in Granite Falls, and I'm in the physical security field.

Would love to see a GTG and drive so that I can see mods (thinking about lighting, audio and an M3 front bumper) and talk about local shops.

See ya guys (non gender specific terminology meaning roughly, "ya'all":english around!

P.S. Don't hit on the wife, please. She likes it too much!

Love them! With wider tires all around (255 vs 235), lost about 7 lbs each corner.

hello all

My name is Katie, I have had my E46, 99 328i for about 5 years now, loved it from first drive. Have gone on quite a few drives with the locals, way too much fun. Took the performance driving school in Bremerton for kicks and had a great time, full out sliding and autocrossing my favorite.
Currently doing a few projects on my green machine; replacing the front bearings, new sports suspension, and recently started hearing a weird noise under the hood and have had it diagnosed to be the idler pulley so...should be busy with that for a bit.
BlackChrome is the man when it comes to connecting with the locals. We have an E46 group that peeps are welcome to join. We do tech sessions together and have been known to go to Champs once or twice.
anyhoo, look forward to meeting you at the next meet.
btw, I am one of the older peeps here but hold my own, age is a state of mind!

Hey everyone I'm Cliff. I just turned 23 years of age a week ago, yesterday. I've had my '03 325 sedan for 13 months. There has always been something that pulled me in to BMW's. Never thought my first one would be an E46, but it just suited me at the time I was looking to finance.

For the most part my car is stock. It was a sport package/ cold weather package car. I've upgraded some of the lighting and put an AFE intake on the car. I believe and exhaust and bumpers will be the next couple of things. Forced induction will come in the future, but I think I'd like to not owe anything on the car before I play with it that much.

I know we had a GTG last week, but if you guys and gals aren't opposed to it I'll plan one. I live in the Mukilteo area so everything except Oregon is close to me.



Oh yea here's the ride.

Yea sorta. I've been on this forum since I bought my E46 a little over a year ago, but I mainly stay quiet since there are soooo many people on this forum. I've been around BMWs for 5 or 6 years. Mostly E30's and E36's. I used to mess with VW's, but I had a neighbor that was a certified BMW mechanic and I started driving his customer cars. From then on I was hooked and told myself I needed to own a BMW.

If anyone wants to have a tech day sometime soon that would be great with me. I have some Rogue Engineering under drive pulleys coming soon. Stainless lines to install. Also if anyone likes playing up at Stevens Pass when the white stuff hits the slopes I'm into snowboarding.

Sneaky Mike,

I've seen you many times before, driving that is. You live/lived around the brier area right? I used to see you on 220th in Mountlake Terrace quite a bit. I basically lived in MLT my whole life until I moved away from the nest earlier this year. Now I live in Mukilteo.

If everyone wants to have some sort of meet I could probably post something and see what everyone's into. I live in an apartment so a tech day or house party thing is totally out of the question here. A drive or something like that would probably be best for now. I know most of our Sunny days are used up this year.

What do you guys and gals think?
