Ahhh damn why'd you put that kind of thinking into my head. Ok maybe I'll just get it at best buy for a week then return it since I don't really make videos anyway.

Oh if anyone wants a RSD 90mm bullet nose stud kit with black conical nuts that I got from Matt it's $60 for you. I haven't used it since I got it like over a month ago. I don't know when I'm gonna use them anyway.

Thanks man! I wished I can get it in step lipped. Too bad, Forgedstars don't offer that.

The thing about SCCA is that you'd need to purchase a membership, you can get the weekend one for $15 and it'd credit towards your full membership if you decide to get one after the event through SCCA.

Just come have fun. Research before you purchase, a friend of mine has couple of friends who bought them are running into issues, such as battery would drain quickly, camera would freeze while recording, etc. Amazon reviews are pretty bad... like 100+ 1 stars...

You look ahead. lol I didn't walk the course that day, only got a ride from my buddy in his e90. I went there late cause I had a soccer game in the morning, drove over there asap then swapped tires and got the car ready.

I've been doing this for 4-5 years so it might be why I don't need to really walk the course to know where to go as long as I look ahead. I usually try to walk twice, though.

I will be going to the next event for sure, I think it's April 21st @ Oakland.
I had a deja vu moment with your guys' conversation.
Where you play football at mate? club? or amateur adult league?

JK! haha I have to admit, I'm not a big fan of those kind of wheels, but something about yours makes them stand out to me and I like them. Good choice man.

Haha! At first when my shop sent me some pic's of it I didn't like it much either then when I went to check it out myself yesterday it blew me away. It definitely looks better in person and I can't even imagine how it'll look once it's mounted on my car. All I can say is, it'll look very very bling bling for sure!

I'll post some final results once I get everything sorted out. It'll be a week or 2 before I can get these mounted up. Need to make sure they will clear my brakes before ordering tires.

Soon buddy! Need to figure out the ordeal with my damn front PDC sensors. I might end up removing the crash bar and take it to a muffler shop and torch out the holes to accommodate the sensors.

Dzaamn. Well, hopefully that's sorted out well.
I'm just waiting on my engine that comes in next week, and I might have the car repainted and my windshield replaced while I'm at it haha

Hi
New to site and need some advice on used parts for under tray (belly pan and splash guard) I bought a 06 325ix touring that is a rebuilt insurance car. Got a very good deal but with that came some missing parts and a few body alignment issues. Car has a carfax verified 19k mi. and from the hood back looks brand new so this is my project to bring everything up to spec. Any help finding parts would be greatly appreciated.
I live in the north bay but I'll travel if necessary

Do you need part numbers or just where to buy the parts?

If it's the former, I always used realoem.com.

I have the part #s and just need to know where are the best places for used parts for this project .The body shop left numerous screws and clips off this car and the front splash guard and the belly pan under the engine are missing. The shut lines at the hood to bumper are off as well and I think just need some adjustment so if any one knows a good body repair person that does side work that would be helpful as well. Thanks
