Drove it for the first time in over a month. Glad to finally be with the E46 again. I will also be clipping a small thread sticking out on my alcantara shift boot, big DIY project.

I slide into a curb after trying to take a very gravel'd corner too fast. Blew side door and side curtain airbags.

Oh, and my left front wheel is making unnerving noises now.

My Ride: ///M3 Vert
Took it to a dealership and almost traded it in for this:http://www.autotrader.com/fyc/vdp.js...e&rdpage=thumb


but then realized I cant get crap for my car, then went on some curvy back roads and realized the car i have is good enough and still runs great then went home and waxed it and blacked out my front grilles.
