I'm free moreso around 2-3ish. Let me know if you want to do another drive later in the day. Otherwise, I might still be able to make it up around noonish, just have to get up earlier to get other stuff done.

If I'm not there, I ether slept in too late or slept in too late. I'm falling asleep as I type this.

Trashcan fails at responding to texts, so I'm going driving somewhere since it's so nice out.

Anyone else want to meet somewhere in the Kettle Moraine this afternoon?

Would anyone be able to recommend a good (but not overpriced) auto body shop in the Hartland area? Want to have my M3 repainted to remove one door ding and tons of rock chips on front of car.

Looking for only the lower heated portion of a sport seat. Preferably black so I don't have to colorbond it. Anyone have any leads? I was seeing them for ~$60-90 on ebay last summer.

I'm a bad influence.




The black 2004 Z4 3.0i sport/6spd on the left is a friend's new car. Basically a clone of mine but black and a year newer. (plus a multifunction steering wheel which wasn't an option in 2003 )

We plan to go driving in the kettle moraine or holy hill area at least once every week or two so anyone who wants to meet up with us, PM me. We're thinking this Saturday in the kettle moraine for a drive.
