Down toward the bottom of the page when you reply it has a section labeled "Attach Files" Click on it and browse the pics you want from your hard drive.

Get rid of the amber corners and side markers and replace with clears. Relatively cheap and easy and really cleans up the look IMHO.

Hello from Buies Creek (near Campbell University), NC ! Nice 325Ci
How does it feel to drive in Durham with in a BMW? I hope you don't have to drive around bad parts in Durham where the roads are absolutely disastrous for pretty much any suspension, even very forgiving ones...

I'll soon get some pics up of my 330Ci ZHP ...

Well, when I drive around Durham it's not the roads that I'm usually concerned about! But, I know what you mean. I used to work in home care and had to see many a patient in the housing projects. Not too bad, considering I've walked through Harlem before.
