sunnydaybmx,

Do you work at Erhard? I've taken my car there for service before. I met with Chen, Sam, and Chris....all superb guys!

I'm driving my M3 in the winter...I drive all my cars year round. I'm using OEM 18" M3 wheels with Dunlop M3 Wintersports; just waiting to be mounted this upcoming weekend. This should be an interesting winter as it's my first winter in the M3. I've driven the last 8 winters in a Honda S2000 with snow tires and that handled fantastic, so I'm expecting similar results.

Christopher

Hey, I do work with Chen and Sam. I drove my m3 last year with the same setup (OEM 18's with Dunlop M3's) for a week or so in the winter, and it would go sideways even starting in second gear. I lived in Ann Arbor then and they didn't clean their roads very good and I decided not to risk damaging my car and drove my Civic lol.

mi5t,
I've used Autometrics in the past and had great results from them. The location I went to was located on Orchard Lake Road just north of Telegraph. Not sure where you're located exactly but definitely worth the drive. Also, I've used Fisher Body Auto in the Troy Motor Mall, on Maple Road between Crooks and Coolidge.

Just curious did you bring your car to Erhard BMW Bloomfield Hills to get a valve adjustment done a couple months ago?

sundaybmx,
No, you are probably thinking of someone else's car. My friend has a black/cinnamon ZCP that recently had a valve adjustment done so you probably saw him.
