^^^Dibaltic,

I sure hope you're not contemplating mounting that curb with your car?! If you do, please refer to Smolck's thread regarding new suspension parts!

We don't have a lot of diesel cars in general... it's sad... only recently did BMW (and Audi) bring the diesel models back to the US... pretty much only been VW and Mercedes for diesels in the states for a long time.

I hear you about the weather! The Pacific Northwest gets A LOT of rain as well... it's hard to keep up... especially with a white car.

I'm in love... love the ZHP (M-Sport) wheels on that car... that color, the diesel engine, the wheels, the black interior... damn Americans and their dis-taste for diesel cars.
