Bought a set of snow tires... getting them mounted tomorrow.

Going to turn my M68s into dedicated winter wheels, and get a set of CSLs this spring for summer wheels.

(Yesterday) had right front control arm replaced, aligned, handbrake tightened, front right turn signal replaced. Washed, detailed, cruised. At midnight I came out of a restaurant with a friend only to find that one of my idiot friends had plowed into the side of my car ('03 325 vert) trying to park. Damage to left side corner of rear bumper. He's paying repairs cash (hopefully). Still a great day with my e46.

Good idea

Guess what I found in my driveway:





They look like they belong on a truck... they just have tiny sidewalls

Got 15% tint all around, and 50% on the windshield. Also got a V1 Radar detector, thinking about hardwiring it.
