San Diego seams to be the best place to live, mostly for retirees. Yes alot of places to take pics of car

I just want to do something different from converting are 3'ers to an M3. That cliff was taken on the other side of hover dam, when I went to vegas. Thanks

Pardon my bitching:
To bad the state is in to much of a deep hole that can't financially get it self out of. The only thing good here right now, is the weather and views. The roads are horrible, pot holes everywhere, can't have a lowered car, for all the ****y dips in the road. If your a student, CA cut a big portion out of the EDU system (the dumbest move EVER), for me they cut 60% classes, lawsuits for some who cant even find classes to finish their degree.

Unfortunately I'll be moving back to my home state. driving the car back across to east coast.

It's taken too long for me to respond...sry. Thanks very much, gonna have to give those sigi's a try...unfortunately I'm a bit "tied up" right now

Here's an E46 pic of why I'm in the dumps right now:



My clutch and release bearing gave up on life yesterday and moved on to the big parts bin in the sky...They are sorely missed and they are proving to be some VERY, VERY difficult friends to replace.

Tomorrow the tranny comes the rest of the way out and I get to play the waiting game with the parts shop. The manager told me this morning that he could have me my clutch kit "without fail" by 5:30 pm today....6:15 rolls around and I have to CALL THEM back to find out what the prob is...all I got was "uh...I'm not sure what happened, my next delivery truck doesn't come until Monday. I can't really do anything for you."

My response: "I guess its a good thing I didn't pay for it yet then, huh?"


Have a good nite everyone. I'm going to go grab a beer...

Not until I finish shampooing the carpets. As long as I'm refurbishing the car some, I might as well clean up some dried dog barf under the passenger seat. And as long as I'm doing that... Highway 49 and leatherette FTW.

No. Don't do that. Looks kinda like a compact like that.

But it's your car, do it if it looks good to you.
