Yes, I've been haunting the wheel and tire thread, but anything that looks like a good deal isn't when you add $150 in shipping, not to mention dealing with a seller you don't know. And I'm more than a little concerned about getting burned by buying from someone I don't know...

That's true. Have you tried other sites?

You guys...you guys (in my Cartman voice). I'm gonna copy what I put on 502SS:

I just swapped in the Meyle LCA bushings and oh my god. Seriously. The improvement is (excuse my forwardness) in-****ing-sane. Ever since I bought my car I believe my bushings were bad, and now that I have put in these new Meyle units, the car feels completely different. It feels more comfortable, confident, and braking feels way better too.

Bottom line: If your car has the high mileage, switch to Meyle, or at least replace your OEM bushings for the LCAs. You will NOT be disappointed.

Me too! My car had been leaking on Thursday morning and I saw the puddle of coolant in the garage but it had been raining so I thought it was just water...then coming back from school I could barely keep the temp out of the red..almost all the coolant leaked out later. Drove it to the shop after filling it back up and it didnt leak a bit.

It will leak and when you're least expecting it. It's just teasing you right now. It's like a little foreplay

Also if anyone is looking for a clean boosted 330i let me know? I will be trying to sell mine, since I'm taking on a new BMW project.

Hey all, OKI has adjusted their meet dates. Here is the message I got on Facebook. Remember these dates are good for the remainder of 2011!

The monthly date has been changed from the Last Sunday of the month to the Second weekend of the month, still being on Sunday at 3pm. Hopefully this will be a better date for some of you. Also don't forget Cars and coffee which is the 2nd Saturday of the month at java brewing company in prospect, Kentucky, This event starts around 8AM. If you haven't made it to one yet, I'd recommend that you do so, there are a good variety of cool cars that show up. Also effecting the date change is that now Cars and coffee are on back to back days. Hope too see some new faces.

Zach

P.S. Most likely have some drives set up to the Summit for a lunch after C&C

Meet scheduled
March 13th (Sunday)
April 10th (Sunday)
May 15th (Sunday)
June 12th (Sunday)
July 10th (Sunday)
Aug 14th (Sunday)
Sept 11th (Sunday)
Oct 9th (Sunday)
Nov 13th (Sunday)
Dec 11th (Sunday)

Finally!! Some other KY members. Wish I'd found this sooner. Hello to everyone. Just to clarify I live in Benton........about ten minutes out of Paducah. Any other western KY members on here??? Anyways, glad to find you guys and look forward to coming to Louisville for one of the meets when I can get away. Work on the river and go through Louisville all the time on the boat but don't get up that way as much as I'd like to. Now I've got a new reason to drive up there.
