WTF is happening here? Who is talking about moving to Texas? Don't do it. Don't. you'll hate yourself forever. Sure, BMWs don't rust as much down there, but it's new england, it has character, we move at the speed of light compared to everywhere else! seriously, just don't do it!

and Chris, you're limiting your search area too much to the west. Get a cheap azz bachelor-pad-house-boat, rent a boat slip for a year, BAM, mobile pad on the water!!!! that would be siiiiiick.

if you have all intentions of going down there for a year or so, get some good experience, then come back for a good position... then ya, go for it

but that place is no home, thats for sure.... sucks, i was depressed after being there for 3 days lol

you should check out Roslindale, parts are very ghetto, but there are some decent spots near hyde park towards the dedham side.. Jamaica plain is nice too, but even that is getting pricey the closer you get to the city. Anything to the west is just straight ridiculous rich town. How about anything near the west rox parkway? west rox itself, or norwood? damn, they are still pricey too.

move to the southcoast! It's the florida of massachusetts!

I'm actually glad it wasn't a new one to begin with and just had my fresh 2 year lasting rattle can paint job. Cannot believe how good it's held up for this long, honestly. My rattle can paint job in the basement I did with lots of prep has lasted longer than the finish that came with my SSR GT3 reps when they were new! no joke. i must have major wheel skills. I think I'm gonna paint em gold now.

Just took my car in for inspection to find out my rear Bilstein sport shocks are blown once again.

They were originally put on 3/16/10 at 111k.

I replaced them on 4/22/11 at 132k because they were blown.

It is now 11/29/11 and I am at 140k. Gone again.




I'm frustrated. TMS is excellent with the warranty and stuff, and I know it's not their fault that Bilstein's quality has gone to shlt, but how many times am I going to do this?

I had a blown one as well on my 325i. But I hit a nasty pothole so it was expected.

I am having some noise from my suspension. I think its the rsm. Since that is the only thing I didnt replace when i overhauled my suspenion. I had the rsm but my mechanic said they didnt need replacement. I hope its just the rsm.

Sam, you need OEM Sachs shocks, I've already read tons of stories about Bilsteins going bad, and I just don't get it, but it's a serious problem they've never fixed..

Chris, your RSM's are bad, but don't cry, it's just cause you're sooooo lowwww.
