Awesome! Can't wait.


Got a dusting of snow last night. Not quite enough for hoonage in parking lots.

Have fun, times are just one way to judge winning. I like to think most sideways = winning (maybe that's why I'm always in the middle of the pack ha ha ha)

How hard is it to remove the front bumper?
Disconnect fogs, temp gage, anything else?

That is awesome Patrick, though i must caution you that with it being in a parking lot there had been no shade the last years. So if you're thinking of bringing Randy that may limit things for you.

I might be a beeraholic.

Hit total wine again today, scored some Samuel Smith Nut Brown Ale, Oatmeal Stout and Taddy Porter; Rogue Brewing Co Hazlenut Brown Nectar, Abita Turbodog Porter, Bells Double Cream Stout and Brooklyn Black Chocolate Porter.

Cheers!

I'm Jen..and I'm a wineaholic.

I once went to BinEnds to look around...and walked out with $800 worth of wine. Of course, 3 years later, I still have half the bottles. I tend to drink in social situations, not on my own. Does that mean I'm a reverseaholic?

Fixed!.. The bumper cover takes a bit more work as there are plastic center push rivets that hold the cover on the bumper. I believe there are 8 that go into the front, and 4 that go into the bottom of the bumper. If you're going to pull the bumper cover without pulling the bumper, you pull off the black trim and you'll see the rivets that go into the front. To get to the rivets that go in from the bottom you have to snap out the lower grilled piece.

Pics from RallyX today. Still working on a video. Didn't come out too nice unfortunately.


Exhaust fell off the hangers on the 7th lap. Dragged it most of the way around the course. Fix and repeat for 8th lap until the mounts were too FUBAR to do the last lap. Was properly fixed with a shoelace for the ride home


And if you guys think the E36 interior is rattly on the road...


Wasn't too successful in the standings. Got dead last. Almost everybody there was in a Subaru. Only two other guys with non-subies were experienced rally drivers. So I didn't have much chance. Still had loads of fun, though. Can't wait to do the next one.

Yikes brad, what happened?

Looks like fun cj, though something about rallying a BMW seems so wrong....

Before you put the Taco thing on a poster, I hope someone takes that apostrophe out of tacos....apostrophes are for possession, not plural.

Driving up a 4 lane highway, far left lane is close due to construction, I'm on the right lane about 2.5 miles from my exit...

It just finished raining, I'm around 68mph ('twas confirmed) and all of a sudden a fcuking late model accord decides to make a last minute decision to exit, all I can do is downshift and slam my breaks, lost traction and did a 180 spin onto the shoulder...

I had no time to look to my left so I can at least pass the a-hole and I wasn't going to risk getting rear ended...

Luckily a CHP officer was up a bridge and saw the whole thing, I tried to reverse, go forward but with traffic coming up so quick I was stuck, he came up to me and said "are you ok?"
I said yea, I just avoided an accident, couldn't be better" he says yea "I know I saw the whole thing, good driving."

He managed to stop traffic so I can turn around...

Man, all I smelled was clutch, rubber and sh1t all the way home...

@Brad....glad you are okay! Sounds like that was a close one.

@CJ...looks like fun! Can't wait to take the CookieMobile out for a real spin on the track myself :-)

@DF...I'm happy to let you have a go at the wine stash during HumptyDumpty weekend

Oh, saw Zero Dark Thirty tonight. Am not a fan of war, guns or violence..but that was one great movie!
