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...



Nice dude!

Raise the car and check the g(ui)bo and diff bolts. I had a diff bolt that was sheared and was causing clunks. It seems to be a decently common cause for the shift clunks.

Dino, what are you looking for? I found a couple decent looking 328is out this way.
My shop had a 328 in the lot that he said the owner was selling. I can ask details if you want.
What's the budget?

Looks like I won't be getting another ///M3 anytime soon.
The ones I looked at yesterday were pretty messed-up. Everything on the out side, perfect! But once you look under, leaks, chassy damage, clutch slipping, knocking, and etc. I think I'm just gonna save money for a house.

James, the S2000 looks great. I'd remove the small reflection spots on the door and rear bumper, though. Nice looking car. I like the S2000s quite a bit, and I dig those wheels in the right application.

Is anyone else having major issues with the latest version of iTunes? It can't seem to keep track of what's been played and hasn't played anymore. The podcast section now just sucks.
