But at the moment, I think I'm in the market for a non-M E30.

AutoScope - Dallas, TX

There's a deal today on Groupon for a complete detail for $89 (usually $225).

I don't think it's an alignment issue. The car tracks perfectly straight and I don't see any unusual wear on the tires. As far as suspension damage, my wife has driven the car, too, but she denies...

This makes me wish I still lived there. I lived in Oviedo for many years, and worked for the city of Winter Park until I moved to Dallas a few years ago.

I definitely still miss it sometimes. :)

Yep. Somehow I managed to wear away the finish on the trim AROUND the buttons on the steering wheel. But not the buttons or the steering wheel itself. :rolleyes:
