Jason is great. Very helpful and somehow shipped a tierod from CA at 5:00pm to TX in less than a day! (11:30AM to my door!) I have no Idea how they can do that! Even with shipping the entire tire rod assembly was $61, while BMW was charging over $120+tax for the same part!
I stayed up late last night reading through the Pelican Parts site. I'm interested in entering the BMW community via the E36 M3, and that site went a long way to convincing me that they're very managable from a DIY maintenence standpoint. Great site. Very well written and thorough.
1998 M3/4/5 -- For going fast

1983 Jeep CJ7 -- For going slow

Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so.
