Hellrot!

I have to say, the way the light plays off of the lines on the car, in this color, keeps entertaining. The amazing thing is that this a thirteen year old car! But it gets a clay bar once a year,...

That is one fine looking car if I do say so myself! My neighbor has a Boxster and we take rides in the country and trade off for a time period. I have to say, I would not trade my Z4 for the...

My bad, they did say 20th, and in my zest to get the information out, I made a blunder. Not my first by any means.

Still, it should be a good show!:bow:

New 294's

If getting new wheels is an option, why not get some new 294's? Or take them and get them refinished? We have had a couple of wheels from my bride's E350 redone, and you cannot tell them from new. ...

Top Motor Question

Just out of curiosity, how long did the deceased motor last? Sounds like you took good care of the top motor, but it simply died. And great idea about the lift assist.
