That's why they call it Misery.

Speaking of Missouri, I've read a few reviews saying the ST's are not recommended for areas that get snow and have salt on the roads. What do you guys think? They're galvanized instead of stainless like the KW's. There's also the bilstein PSS at the same price.

Wow, that is a ton of bad luck. I've been driving in MO and all over the country for almost 7 years now, and i've never had to replace a wheel/tire/any suspension component due to a pothole/steel plate/whatever in the road.

Maybe you should stop driving through them?

there wasn't a pot hole on the one I hit recently. something must have been in the street like a small brick or something. I went back and checked a bunch and nothing.

two of my general summers that came on the car when I got it had bubbles

Lol, I was just giving you a little bit of crap. I've been really lucky as far as those things go. Maybe up north the roads are a little better? Either way, none of them are good.

Not stainless, yeah I wouldn't recommend that then. I have pas9's (well not really anymore) and they gave a nice drop, good ride and moderate performance benefits.

Seems like I might have my next smartphone purchase pinned down. EVO 3D looks like a powerhouse coming to Sprint. Hope the benchmarks are good.

I've been looking at that phone too. It will be nice as long as the 3D feature can be turned off like on the Nintendo 3DS. I've heard a lot of complaints about glasses-less 3D giving users major headaches. The dual core processor is the **** though, that thing is gonna rock.

Lol, pretty sure there are only about 2 dozen on topic posts in this whole thread so I think you're okay. And, if anyone hasn't heard about that yet then they must be under a rock somewhere.

I am interested in the Processor, Ram, and increased battery size, as well as gingerbread.

I will sample the 3d, then shut it off permanently. I can't even see 3D movies because they induce aural migraines. Effed up I know.

No flats on my BMW, or the other. 2 I owned, but my Accord coupe had 6 flats, but I also put 40k on it in 14 months

Don't know if you guys ever saw my 325i but i'm digging through my computer and I found some old pictures. Enjoy.

My beauty as she was when I picked her up in Chicago, I wish the paint condition was half as good on my 330i as it was on this gem, it was also pretty anemic for an e9x, i believe it only weighed around 3200


60mph + Tree =




Here you can see where the roof buckled:


Passed a sobriety test after it happened, and then ended up making 3500 off of it from Insurance. It worked out for the best I suppose.

I think once we hit 10,000 we should start a new thread.

Why? I think it'd be kinda epic to have a thread with like 40,000 posts some day.

At the moment we are still trying to expand our "members" and since we've been referring people to this tread around the interwebz and IRL I think it would be best to not confuse anybody with two different threads
