cholea is great. Anyone who wants to get high quality work for a very affordable price, send him a PM. Cholea has installed transmission mounts and engine mounts for me, dialed in ride height and camber. Greatest part is, you get to watch him the whole time (or if you are like me, actually help out).

I like "steven's pic" on post 1 . Are the DPE's done yet? I want to be alive for them to be mounted.

I'll do it. As long as I have my suit and tie, all dressed up in black and white. Are you going to wear the dress I like?

I can't wait to get you on the floor good lookin. (i don't know the rest of this song so **** you)

Stevens never going to finish those DPE's he's too lazy.

And by diagnostic work, what do you need checked? PM me for any inquiries.

Yah. Been super busy, but I'm actually driving the M again everyday. If you want some help, I'd be willing to lend a hand anytime.

Yeah your welcome to come and learn as I work on the BMW. That's what 90% of the members I meet do, so it saves them more money in the long run.

I guess it's more of a teach a man to fish type deal
