Norman, I'd love to make it but I don't get done with work till 9pm tomorrow...ugh, and I'll be coming from the santa monica/venice area so I'm assuming you guys will be wrapping up by the time I make it down there (930-945) at the earliest. I'll try to make the next one.

can someone recommend a good shop in the venice area for an oil change (need the Castrol TWS 10w-60 full synthetic) for my M3. I was referred to http://benoitauto.com/ but have no experience there...inspection 0mi is the reading so I wanna get it done ASAP...HELP

Hey bro, one of our members uses Autoworkstadt on Sepulveda in Manhattan Beach. Not sure what the prices are like, but he goes there when he can't do something himself. Check 'em out.

I won't be able to make Fridays and most likely not Saturdays. But, if the group opts to change, so be it. Whatever's best for 310SBB.
