Sup guys, what a weekend. Four arrests, one of them I pulled over because he was trying to sell his BMW M5 (06) and his potential buyer was in the back seat. They punched it to 100+. He was actually really nice

was the car impounded or did the potential buyer get to drive it like he stole it all the way home?

he was indeed intoxicated. And he was not the registered owner. The registered owner was in the passenger seat and it was he who was egging him on to "punch it." The driver owned his own car dealership and he ended up blowing .10/.11. The registered owner was more deuce and he blew .19

The potential buyer, in the back, blew only .05 and YES, I let him drive the car away. The potential buyer said he would buy it based on the arrest alone LOL

Somewhat on the lookout for....

- Black M3 seats (leather or cloth)
- OEM M3 strut bar (Kalim!?)

getting/doing soon:

- Black suede headliner (done next week)
- Control arm bushings, Trailing arm bushings, etc..
- AFE dryflow filter
- oil change

I have Black M3 heated cloth manual seats (uber rare). Not sure if I want to part with them.

No M3 strut brace, though. :/
