cool thanks. I thought about having someone with my same name cash it for me (pretty common name) and not reporting it. but I don't know if I want to take the risk. plus im not sure if my previous employer could out me since they are aware of the work. Don't think its worth it.

Hope I still get of it. and its not discounted dollar for dollar. that would kinda suck I only took it for some EXTRA cash.

then the rear suspension broke...

I also need an FSR...

among other things, baby steps.
lame but serves them right for not taking it to proper place to be worked on.

For me, whenever my Acura is out, I ALWAYS end up really missing it. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my M but every time I drive it, I am reminded how much it just MOWS through gas and when I don't drive it, I don't miss it. But I still love it. There's something wrong with me isnt there?
yes something is wrong with you. If I had an //M I would never drive an Acura. Gas is pricy but something are worth it.

I love both my e46 and the e24 haven't really loved any other cars ive had in our family. May sound cheesy but they really do make the ultimate driving machine. In my experience nothing else drives like BMWs. In all the ones I've had and driven, you really do feel connected with the car and road. I've had similar aged Audis and Mercedes but neither feel that way.

Cars are like women in my opinion they are each a little different and you can love different ones for different reasons. A lot of men can love the same one but not all will and some will even love the ugly ones for their own reasons. Its very subjective.

exactly.

Definitely should borrow it and live with it for a little bit to see if it is the right car for you.

Honestly if you don't care about caravaning then I'd say an hour after it opens to let the line die down.
