Oh, I thought you were referring to Driv3r's thread where he got towed and wanted to beat up a security gaurd..

Yes, park safely. Park in left field if possible. If not, bring pliers to pull valve stems of other cars if they leave dings..

I saw that thread...I'd gone ballistic as well, although it must be said that he should've been more discerning in his choice of parking spots

Try to park tail in, it makes it harder to tow your car away.

I will take your advice on the pliers... Dings are my nightmares, everytime I return to my car at a mall lot, I'd race back expecting the worst

Happy holidays, everyone! Try not to wear out your snow tires on those long trips to see family.

I spent a little more than that on winter wheels/tires for the e92 I don't even HAVE YET, and I spent about that on snow shoes for the M5 (new tires all around and had all 4 wheels straightened). If we have no measurable snow this winter, you can all thank me.

My car is enjoying a trans-Atlantic cruise for New Year's ... due in NY next Monday (1/8). As you can imagine, I'm driving myself and my friends crazy waiting. (Yes, I know...it's a VERY short drive.)

I'm planning to get the iPod integration, so I ordered an iPod last week, and started futzing with iTunes today. I've got about 1,400 songs which I tried to add to iTunes in one shot. No such luck. iTunes crashes, with the "useless error message" option enabled. :mad:

I'm adding one folder at a time. Twenty-nine folders down, 26 to go. Sigh. At least it'll keep my mind off the car.

So now I've got the tires, I've got the iPod coming. Now I just need the damn car!

Whao?! Mitch? You're on here now! Great!! Congrats on the new car, and hope to see you at an autocross event or two this upcoming season.

Sorry, I still owe you an autocross article for the Boston Bimmer.

Happy New Year to you all too! It was nice meeting quite a few of you NE e90posters this year, and I hope to get the pleasure of meeting more of you this upcoming year. You're all a great bunch! Prosper, be healthy, and have fun!

i got bridgestone blizzaks but the reason i said it was a bad purchase is because of the mild winter, might hit 60F this saturday. i like the blizzaks but did i really need them? hopefully not.

Ahh...gotcha. Yeah, the snow tire tread isn't going to last too well in 60F weather!
