Ugh...visiting Baron in the morning.

Laundry list:

Replace Exhaust Valve Lifters, possibly Cylinder Head
Transmission Control Module is malfunctioning (either that or it's the switch under my center console that went bad)
Rear passenger window rolled down this morning but would not roll up until I got to work
Fix a fog light that got knocked out of it's bracket after i ran over a 30lb racoon.

And for some reason I burned through a quart of oil in less than 3500 miles.

I'd do it, how wide are your wheels in the back? Can you fit 275s in the back.

Oh yes! Gotta love that umbrella.

Someone please explain tire sizes to me. My train of thought has always been

255(sidewall height)/35 (width of tire)/r18(wheel size)

Is that right? Or do I have sidewall and width mixed up?

255 ( width of tire in mm ) / 35 (ratio of tire width and tire height) / 18"

So I found the absolute best speed trap... the hard way. 37 in a 25, and I wasnt even doing that. I was on the brakes the whole way down the hill actually. (engine braking counts)

Anyway, street everybody drives 50 on. Motocop has his bike pulled to the side and he's using the gun from faaarrr away, pulling over almost every car. Pulled me and then 3 others over. Didnt even ask for insurance

Not taking that route home ever again. Was stopped literally 15 feet from state line.

LOL.

I don't think that's on the list of potential cars.

A 335d would be killer. I'd like to experience that torque first hand.

I wanna see how far these things stick out before I order the 90mm for my rear.
I think that's a good idea. From the sounds of it you should probably get 75 front 90 rear.

I would think 265 would be good enough.

Well I'm signing the paper work on a 2010 altima for the lady right now. Did my best to get her in a BMW but she needs something new and we can't swing a new bimmer right now.

Yup, i'm gonna run a square setup on the arc-8's but I'll probably still be running my spacers to get em flush with the fender.
