But yea, it's at cost which is the same, if not better, then employee. I keep meaning to ask if they give discount to law enforcement as well, hehehe.

Have some BMW parts I'd like to get out of the garage....

M3 Carbon Fiber rear diffuser. Weave is pretty nice, all but one of the clips are broken off. I have some of the broken clips if you want to try to repair this piece.

Price: Case of good beer

M3 Titanium trim. Overall in good shape, some wear, missing the center console piece

Price: 12 pack of good beer

I like wheat beers...

Dale and I would like a get together. Dale would like some insight on how to change the bushings on my car. He looked at some of the DIY's and he said it left some little details out, so any help you guys can offer, I would appreciate it.

Tell me about it. I am about ready to do extensive suspension goodies and I am a bit nervous about doing all correctly.

Definitely. As soon as my car is done and I'm back in the states I'll be arranging this. Probably another D&B meet? Or I was thinking of making it an expensive one and we could all go go karting. Found some really good ones in southwest Denver.

Lol, I've actually seen that one before and it looks good. Buuuuuut, I really have to get a new rear bumper and side skirts first before anything else. In that order.

I think so. If you glass the tabs back in place it should be ok. I wouldn't take the thing off and on the car a bunch tho. Course your investment in it is minimal, so it is what it is...

We are looking to replace the FCAB's and the RTAB's. The Fronts look pretty straight forward to do, but we are kinda curious about the RTAB tool that is needed for the rear. I want to start with the rear. I have this nail on the chalkboard squeak in the rear when I drive on a concrete surface. Dale tells me to just turn up the radio....funny man!

If that doesn't fix the noise, we are thinking it is the rear shock mount bushings. These will be replaced as soon as I decide what kind of suspension that I want.

Dale and I will come introduce ourselves to you on the 15th at DSGP. We probably won't get to the replacement until June. Dale is having knee surgery on the 19th and plus we have the two day at PPIR.
