Are you guys still planning on doing that? If yes, I'm starting my trip planning right now.

I could really go for a sunny day and a spotted cow...

I can'tuntil end of may, maybe even not until a week or 2 into June. We should do a few meets and try to hit every local state brewery this summer though. Leinenkugels, new glarus, sprecher, point premium, milwaukee, don't leve leave a single one out.

If everybody that wants to go PM's me their Location and dates available around the general time frame I said, I could try to organize something that includes as many of us as possible with a good meet up location.

Definitely in on the brewery tour idea. I'm open any weekend and am from Racine James (Thanks for organizing this btw). Oh, I'm also heading down to chicago this sunday for a drift event, in case anyone wants to join up and travel down there together. So far it's just me and my brother, but the event looks like it'll be a blast. Click here for more details.

I'm in New Berlin... Brewery tour sounds interesting, can't make the June ride but I'll see how things work out for later drives.

No, not yet though I stopped at HF on Friday and got the tools. The bumper comes tomorrow. I am going to test fit it then drop it off at Kelly-Moss for paint. Any interest in helping me with the swap?


Also, has anyone performed the vanos seal repair? I have the kit to do it, but am a bit cautious to do it.

New here, I'm in Madison, WI and have an e46 325i black with black kidney grille, mono color badges, LED smoked taillights, 35% tint, and a lip spoiler. Purchased smoked corners and side markers today. I'm looking to start up more regular meets in Madison and the surrounding area. PM if you either have a head start on this and want help or want to join forces in making this become a reality in the near future!

New rally -

Quote:
We are organizing a road rally/scenic drive in Wisconsin along one of the best roads and best kept secrets of the area - Kettle Moraine Scenic Drive. We did this route in about two months ago and also last September.

See:
http://dnr.wi.gov/org/land/parks/spe...kmscenicdrive/ for printable map of route.

So far we have 8 cars that are 100% in for the rally and we are working on getting more.



Location:

We are meeting at the LaGrange General Store parking lot (highway 12 and county highway H, see map: http://maps.google.com/maps?q=LaGran...en&sa=N&tab=wl).

Time: Saturday, May 26, 10:00AM sharp.


It is 115mi long and ends at Elkhart Lake (Road America) we are going to do the entire route. I'm planning on bringing motorola talk-abouts, if anyone else has two way radios please bring them so we can keep the pack organized (I'll also have my Valentine1 in session - game on!).


Photos from rally last fall:
http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?s...b000a1&type=1*

Email me (aniles04@gmail.com) if you guys have any questions. I hope you all can join us. Anthony

I've have had a few dings from careless people since I moved to Madison. Where would you recommend to get my car touched up around Madison?
