Nice... That sounds badass

I am actually having a meeting with my bosses boss next week to discuss certain things about where I want to be and what I want to do. Burns & Mac has a program that will pay for your Master or PhD, but then you have to be there for 5 years or pay back the money once you leave as a prorated amount. Anyways I have heard that CDB will not pay for construction personel, yet all the other divisions will always pay for their engineers to pursue masters/PhDs.

Anyways I am going to ask about it and see if it will better my career path of of going into more of a PM role. Or there is a job assignment they already asked me iif I would be interested in up in Canada...2-3x what I am making now, but its BFE Canada... 1-2 years.

Field assisngments are great from a money aspect but man would canada blow ass. Thats why i jumped all over this colorado field position, the truth of it is that in our industry they build these plants in the middle of no where. When you find one thats in a place worth being you gotta jump all over it.

I started my masters after college but found it didnt make much of a difference from a career and or pay standpoint. Burns and mac may look at it differently than b&v though. Then again i learned very quickly that i didnt want to be an engineer.

I might just do TCK DA's... I could hopefully sell my KW's and my springs (I have like 5 sets) and get back most of my money

Drive my car again with my TCK DA's, it's ****ing nuts now that the front alignment isn't screwy. I can just throw this thing in the corners, it's ridiculous. I'm having trouble with the tires keeping up with the suspension... I hope to get out on track next month, hopefully once I get some heat into these tires they will be able to handle the stress. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think I should be running R-Comps with these spring rates...

So this morning I get into the M3 to drive to work.... As I was planning on taking it over to Kendal over lunch and have him look at/bleed my brakes (tried and tried this past week and the pedal still feels soft, so I figure it needs an electronic bleed ) anyways... I get in the car this morning to start it up and I hear this splashing sound?? Try starting it again and again splashing sound. I get out and look under the car there is gasoline just pouring out. I was dressed up for work already so I didnt want to jack the car up and get dirty, but it seems like and Im keeping my fingers cross that its just a fuel line or fuel filter.

This crap is starting to add up... and really piss me off. I havent really drove my car in 3 months or better...

My M's brakes have always felt bad. I had Kendle bleed them too and no luck. Brad had the same issue and had Kendle bleed the ABS modual too but didn't have any luck.

Brad fixed his by using a pressure bleeder gun and reverse bleeding the brakes from the calipers up. I was going to see if Kendle can do that, but if not then we either have to get one of these devices or just live with our shitty pedal feel.

I changed by brake booster to, it could have been either one of those that fixed it. All I can say is my stoptech kit has stupid good pedal feel.

Well I know it has to be the air because they felt great before hand... now they just feel like ****. A part of me is thinking of actually taking it to BMW. I hate taking anything to the stealership, but I would think they would have the solution to anything and I tell them they didnt fix **** then they would redue it?? I dont think my brake booster would be out though like i said everything was great before I replaced the lines...

Any time the resivior goes completely empty, meaning air gets into the master cyliner you have to do a computer bleed on the master. Need a GT1 for that. Andy mispoke before, Kendall didn't do that for me, Chris Bridges at Baron did it for me.

BTW, I'm sitting at my desk at work drinking a beer. Anytime after 5pm you can drink beer. Fvcking sweat.

I might actually want to borrow that from you. I am confused though when looking at it on harbor freights website. I understand you can screw it into an air compressor then fill it with fluid... then nipple. What do you put onto the brake resevor under the hood? Can I just put my normal pressure bleeder onto it in order to catch the excess fluid?

You don't put anything on the resevoir. If the fluid level gets to high you can use a turkey baster to remove some and recycle it. In most cases though it will barely change, you don't need alot of fluid to do use this method. That's another reason why it's great, you don't have to pour two plus bottles into the bleeder like you do the motive one.

BTW, my new company doesn't block youtube. Yeah Buddy.

Obligatory pics.

Small ranch, but plenty of garage space and back yard with nice deck!
