hmm...yeah, lack of heated seats would suck, but is nav a deal breaker for you? I've never been a fan of any OE nav systems.

I'm not excited about the OE nav either but there is no good way to get indash nav on the z4. It's got a sloped console so anything aftermarket I put in there will look terrible.

I just need a screen that will do cam and nav and not look horrible.

Drove through Milpenis around the time of the meet today and saw a moded Lexus IS that managed to wrap itself around the metering light at an onramp

Wow that sucks. One time I was coming back from the movies with friends and some drunk driver drove into the median, flipped the car onto its roof, and slid into my lane. Bricks were shat and luckily I had managed to gtfo the way and avoid crashing head on!

And on friday my 20 min commute to school took an an hour and twenty minutes! Two separate accidents on the same freeway. One was a 7 car pileup, and the other, a man who got out of a mental hospital ran onto the freeway and got hit .

Sometimes I hate driving

I just wonder if there's enough room to do it without pulling out the whole pump. I don't want to drain the whole system.

I just ordered an aluminum pulley. I went into Winchester and they said they thought that it was plastic...not sure. The way mine broke it looked plastic but not sure. They could order it for $45. I ordered it for $32 shipped.
Just use an old belt and a vise grip.
