Rick also stopped by to pick his car up today.
WOO FREE SPACE! :excited

Now you can say you work on infinitis too.. lol

you and I really need to meet. You know, you and I are not so different. the only main difference is it seems you prefer the physical modifications, where as I prefer the digital. although I know you have the software access side too, you no doubt have much more experience on the tangible side.

plus we've met local bmw enthusiasts that know the both of us yet we've never met. I'll try and make it to one of the bay meets this summer, one where you don't end up showing up so late. Or... I forgot if you ever made it to that one san bruno one. oh well, looking forward to seeing your car.
