I saw a black 330i today at Neville-Meade golf course today in Oldham. It had an M3 rep bumper and M3 rep wheels and a BMWCCA sticker on the window. That happen to be a fanatic here?


(P.S I took pictures )

Drove by Shah's today around 4-ish and saw a few cars parked out front. It didnt look like much of a turn out, but the few cars that were there looked nice.

Got rear-ended then pushed into a truck. People really need to be more cautious when its wet out. Needless to say its totaled. It needed a hood, core support, radiator + fan, both corner and headlights, left foglight, left fender, grills, grill filler panel and a few other things.

That sucks but can be easily fixed, even if it has frame damage. All depends on if it is worth it to you.

Check out my wreck from several months ago: http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...406&highlight=

Car is back to normal today and running fantastically! I will snap some pics of it here soon. Here are some in the process:

That sucks man! Glad you are okay though.

I have all of my suspension components for my overhaul.

Koni STR struts / shocks
KYB mounts
Continental Tires

I plan to begin the breakdown this weekend!


BTW, there is a BMW drive event coming up that is free. Seems you can drive some newer models. I think I'm going. You guys in? On May 15th. I got this email:


Yeah! We're Crazy and Yeah, We're doing it AGAIN!!!

Announcing the 2nd annual Sam Swope BMW

RIDE AND DRIVE




WHEN >>>>>>>> >>>>>>>>>>Sunday May 15 Noon till 5:00 PM

WHERE >>>>>>> >>>>>>>>>>Papa John's Stadium Parking Lot

A nice variety of cars to help improve your driving skills and also to showcase the many safety features of the new BMWs. We will have qualified instructors to assist and ride along with you as you challenge the Slalom course and the VERY wet Skid Pad. Additionally we will have a couple of race cars to take the adventurous for OMG rides.

Dude, that sounds sweet! I went to a track meet at Papa John's last year that was cool, as well. My wife is due on May 12th, so I probably won't be able to make it!

Thanks guys! It definitely sucks, but i'm more irritated that I just put a radiator, water pump and thermostat in it not even 1k miles ago. As much as I like the car I think i'd rather take the money and put it into the E46, after I started it to move out the road it wasn't sounding too healthy.

ice2003- can't wait to see how it comes together!

330iJohn- I got the same e-mail today, i'm almost positive i'll be there!

Still can man, it is in May! Seems it is free. I have learned from a gentlemen who works there your average 328i cars won't be there!

Just picked up tickets for the Ride&Drive.

FYI, you signup on the list (name only, no phone or email), and they give you 4 tickets. Apparently there will be 4 cars available to drive. I signed up as dkirby147 +1 and got 8 tickets

From a guy who was there last year:

Quote:
I worked the one put on last year. We took an M3, M5, M6, Z4, 135, 335d, 550GT, and I think that is it. It was a good time. The M5 had to end up being brought back on a flat bed.
So a great lineup. No 328i BS.
