I'll consider joining. The benefits are negligible IMO.

46 bucks a year for 10-15% off parts and labor at baron. I do all my work myself but there are still some parts I can only get at baron.

Roundel monthly magazine alone is more than worth the 46 bucks.

Not to mention the 4+ tech days we do where you have access to a lift and guys that have been working on BMW's for 30+ years.

You have to be a CCA member to do BMW, porche, or merc DE's.

Primier members get the following.

Towing - Provided for up to 25 miles at no charge to member. Additional mileage is the responsibility of the member and will be negotiated prior to sending out service. Includes vehicle extrication and winching.

Emergency Road Service - Any available contracted road service that is needed to get your vehicle running (i.e. hose replacement or tightening of cables or belts etc.).

Essential Fluids or Supplies Delivery - Including gasoline, water, oil, or any supplies necessary to send a member's car on its way. Member is responsible for actual cost of fluid or supplies requested.

Flat Tire Changes or Repairs - Includes changing a flat tire with your good spare or plugging a punctured tire.

Emergency Battery Service - Includes tightening or cleaning of cables, jumpstarts, minor adjustments to alternator, etc.

Lockout Services - For help with lost keys, broken keys, or accidental lock-out of your vehicle. Includes locksmith assistance.

These are alright, Tischer BMW out of NE sells their parts for far less than 10% off of Baron's exorbitant rates. Getting 10% off labor, now that's a bit better.

Tech sess. yea, DE's, yea good points on those.

I'm not seeing a single thing on this that isn't covered under the umbrella of my CPO BMW "assist" which is free, for two more years..

I'll consider it this summer for the tech and the DE's, but other than that it doesn't seem as worth it.

I guess since I get most my parts else where and do all my own work I don't get anything from it either except the magazine. It is more of a BMW enthusiest community that I support.

Most if not all of you have not been to a single CCA event or gathering so I don't expect you to understand. This is why not only the BMW CCA is strugling but all major car clubs.

Soon we will be stuck to parking garage nothings.

I guess I look at it this way, without our members the CCA wouldn't be able to put on DE's, Car control clinics, street survivals, harvesters events, tech sessions, panera get-togethers, etc, and etc. A 5 year old mowing lawns for his dad can afford 46 bucks a year.

I wasn't upset and that wasn't intended for only you. I gave up trying to recruit the guys on this forum long ago.

I just think it's funny when everyone *****es about how there are never any meets or events goin on around here when there are tons every month. The BMW club is actually putting on a Sadler's karting day on the 26th of this month.

The idea of parking garages and highway cruises is fun but not twice a month.

We'll see how this summer ends up.. Could be gold, could...go...south.

I'll probably end up joining. Lots of the meets are nil to me though because of my work schedule..

My car officially smells like a lawnmower today. But sounds pretty good.

Is stock suspension supposed to be tucking in the rear. My shocks are completely shot

Ill get the wiring for you devak, I just want to check my car first before I post. I have O2simulator.net or whatever simulators.

I CANT WAIT untill I get to take these winter tires off / get new suspention. Im going to put my dad up to making a decisition, either we actually look at M3's or Im just going to continue with this car. Hopefully he feels bad, considering he did wreck this car this summer

Jacob, seriously, how much of a difference is there between your 325's handling and your M3's handling. I know your M has springs...

OK, because you're only the 20th person to ask about how I did my O2 sims and ebay headers this week, I made a video. Should clear things up. Will take a while to upload though. 1080p comes at a price.

Basically,

Wiring guide: (from O2 sensor to car)
Red----positive jumping terminal (+ power)
White---Black (signal 1)
White---Black (signal 2)
Black---2x Grey (- power)

A big difference, its got different sways, suspension, diff, and its wider. I really can't wait until some track time to see how well my 330i compares to his, I honestly think that once I get my new wheels setup i should be able to hold turns just like him if not better.

Cut strip crimp. More reliable than soldering and easily removable / reversible.
