A new floorpan? That's major work which will require removing much of the interior.

I feel for you man. i used to work 7 days a week too, 5 days detailing at bmw of bellevue and the other 2 at my buddy's shop in kirkland. It was good money and thats when I fell in love with bmw's.

BTW anybody who lives in the seattle area (zegerman i know atleast you do) if you ever need body work my buddy owns/runs 360 autobody in kirkland (his name is Dave), he does great work. He might hook you up if you tell him Adam sent you lol.

Yeah, I have two small door dings from the previous owner of my car that I'd love to have removed. I've considered buying a ding-removal kit to fix them myself, but I'd be curious to know that a shop would charge. Maybe I should give 360 a call.

oh I HATE the view from inside holy shyttttt cant see a damn thing..
The 3.6 is the V6 and it has 300hp 275ish lbs of torque. They are slow, and heavy. The SS V8s aren't too bad, still too slow for my taste.

They do have a great suspension and breaking setup. Drive the SS

Corey, sorry to hear aout the deal falling through.

Matt, 'grats on getting the cams!

Frank, I love Audi's, they were my intro to German steel, My beloved old '85 5000s. Great car. I was incredibly close to buying a b5 S4 last year, but the bastard sold it from under me as I was on my way to meet him.

What else...

...
...
...

11K! I guess that you're here for the long haul then Sama?

Matt, for the widebody, I want. If done well, they look incredible. If its a shoddy job, it looks like ass.
Thanks bud! I can't wait to get them installed!

And yea, I'm undecided on it, it will be a long time away. I like the flares though. I'd get a whole respray at the time as well.

When the AAA guy towed me, he ripped a hole in the underbody, and they're paying to replace the WHOLE bottom of the car. A couple estimates from different places have it at around 2k....
Wait, how can they replace the whole bottom? It's unibody...

Like, massive.

Oh, and I don't have my car, let alone pictures
Mebbe i can get my parents to email me some


Edit:

I stole a pic of Matt's underbody


The red blob is where my hole is located, and about the same size as well

So they will weld it up and undercoat it?

Well, they don't need to replace the carpet or any other interior bits. They just have to remove it for welding and reinstall it afterward.

Niiiiiiice. I know how you feel man, I worked as a valet for an upscale retirement living building in La Jolla. Sadly, a lot of the cars there were pretty bland but I did drive some neat ones. We had a tiny little 2 story underground garage too, and it had huge-ass pillars every 5 feet to support the stupid 30-story building on top of it. It was such a pain in the ass.

Dude, the e39 M5 is undeniably one of the sexiest cars BMW ever made! If I could take back one moment of my life, it would be the moment I thought to myself "Ryan, you should sell the M5, the cash could really help the family..."

I mean c'mon, family is cool and all, but definitely not cooler than an M5!
