I politely told him I was fine with that but when i called I was told municipal doesn't lower ticket cost to which he replied "I'm the judge, I decide the penalty" we both laughed and I was on my merry way! Instead of paying $328 I only had to pay $90
They have to pay for their holiday party somehow. Lol

Glad you got it straightened out.

Clay bar and waxed for the 530i for sure. Maybe the same for the 335i or show car finish. Do you know of any places that refinish or powder coat wheels? Should have taped or plastidip my wheels .

Ugh it sucks how bad roadtrips can tear up your car. I have to drive to Goodfellow AFB in TX for tech school in feb and i'm already thinking of the precautions I want to take to save my paint.

Quick question, for those with catless dps and a JB4; if you get the dpfix you're set to pass a smog right?

Hey guys, any local shop recommendations in the Henderson or LV area? Need to get a fresh set of tires mounted and properly balanced(slight shake around 55mph) as well as an alignment! Also anticipating where to get my water pump/thermostat replaced if/when it finally fails. :/

Not sure about a tire shop.
H1 performance for alignment.
SWBimmers for mechanical work.
