oh, and Matt. Do send resume. Shows initiative. But Karl is write. One mispelling or a crappily written resume, for me, it goes in the garbage. If someone can't show the attention to detail needed to sell themself, how can I expect they will have attention to detail in the work they do for me?

I used this book previously. http://www.amazon.com/The-Resume-Cat...ref=pd_sim_b_1. Libraries often have a bunch of resume and cover letter books, check 'em out.

Finally, saw an absolutely pristine TiAG 95-97 M3 in the gargae yesterday. Pristine. Gray vaders that did not have a single scratch on them. Amazing.

That is all. Ciao bello.
Intentional?
Sorry Chad, not taking yours or Jared's job as grammar police!


EDIT Matt were you going to sell the door panels off your 328is? There was a guy looking for pretty much a whole tan interior on another thread.

huh, new whine when I started the car yesterday and today. Wonder what that is about. Loose belt, or power steering is my bet. I know I'm low on steering juice.

Ironic, I just started a thread about a power steering flush.

That's a labor saver there! I had no idea that A. the system has a filter, B. It's in the reservoir and un-removable.

I did, got it from AutohausAZ and it was $21.67 but I ordered from them for the other stuff I was getting that Pelican didn't have (Meyle brand tranny filter). The shipping is flipping retarded unless you hit $50 though.

I saw those too, and another brand MotorKing I think, on Amazon and reviews were good, but I was worried not about the reservoir which is a pretty simple plastic tub, but the filter inside it. Here's the link to them on Amazon. Apparently the thing to watch is the gap between the cap and tank.

URO is an American company that sells Chinese knockoffs. From what I've read, they are usually quite poor quality.

There's only $5 difference anyway. I would just get the Sachs/ZF OEM one for $5 more. IMHO

wasn't planning on getting the URO part, just hadn't really seen them pop up before until I was looking for this part.

I hated it just because of the way they spelled URO. It like using a "z" to denote something plural.

They used the umlaut to appear more German. To me that's false advertising, plain and simple.

The rubber stoppers on yours are probably shot, Kenny. I just remove my bumper when I want to get it up on ramps.

i have a set of the old school steel ramps, no rubber stops, just back facing teeth to anchor into the ground. but i got a really nice low pro jack for christmas so theres no need to be fooling around with ramps now.

I drive up on 2x4's then slide the low profile jack under the bumper to the cross member. I jack it up then slide the ramps underneath.

Ramps+ two 3' long 2 x 6s placed halfway up the ramps= success. No nose scrape, no drag on the way down.
