An E46 does looks nice in that neighborhood, but you're exaggerating a bit. Just up the street on 85th, there are some people into german cars. You can see a Cayenne S, SL500, 335d M-sport, and pretty clean Scirocco.

If it's your circuit board, I think you're out of luck. You might be able to sell it on ebay for $100 or so.

I can normally judge a neighborhood based on two percentages

1. The % increase of current wheel size from stock

2. The % of the rear window that is taken up with a raiders sticker

Apparently I'm in the whitest part of Oakland. The only nearby place that has more whites are select areas of North Berkeley.
