Now Quebec, that's a cool city. Good culture, good food, and the ability to butcher my French on a regular basis.
Of course I don't mind!

Though I didn't mean Quebec City, merely La Belle Province herself. Tremblant etc.

quebec city is on our must do lists, but we want to hit it up in the summer, when we can walk around and enjoy the sights more.

Montreal offers what appears to be more to do indoors

Joe, you should strongly consider a night at Montebello. It's gorgeous there.

We should get a group together for a beer exchange. Who wouldn't enjoy some tasty micros from other parts of the country?

Any takers?

Dine, I got a suggestion (for you and everyone else that DIYs)

Get one of these magnetic trays. Worth their weight in new nuts and bolts if it keeps you from dropping and losing even ONE fastener.

In for beer. We have to be careful, tho...I think postal restrictions officially do not sanction such illicit activities.

I don't know if something is in the water...but I've had 4 inquires on the touring in the last 2 days. I sorta miss that little bugger, particularly since I don't want to mess up the M3. But an extra $8k would be nice!

If nothing else, just use a length of wire with a hook bent onto the end.

It's legal to mail it to certain states, Massachusetts isn't one of them. My best friend was living in Rhode Island and I sent him a beer basket for his birthday one year and the website made damn sure i wasn't trying to send it to myself in mass.

If you're covering your expenses and making a little money while helping someone out, good for you.

Brit and I were just watching the Wheeler Dealers on the 8 series and she saw that tray and must have rewound it 3 times in awe. She said I needed to get one now.

I guess that means I've enlisted her help one too many times looking for some miniscule but essential lost part.

Ps, did anyone notice the OBC said brake pad linings in one shot, but I don't believe they ever mentioned or accounted for changing them.

Lol. It's a lovely feeling.

Not for long though. The E36 is on her way out when I can clear smog, and Brittany seems to be wanting a Suburban badly.

Sigh.

Get one of these while you're at Harbor Freight or get a one of these pick up tools.
