I have one of those. Used it to take the pic in Munich. What I don't have is time to drive and take / upload / edit dSLR photo's. So I drive!!!

Question Th3e clunking insanity

For those who drive manual transmissions.....
Does any of you experience "the clunking noise" when shifting from neutral to Reverse or from neutral to 1st gear [from a parking/stand still position]?

As I planned and had arranged ahead of time I had shades (shadesone.com) do both my tint and clear bra today. Not cheap, but as I had experienced in the past excellent work.

I should have my car at the meet if you want to check out the results.

Never experienced it. Although I grind third more than I should since I got this ZHP knob. I'm not sure why people love it so much. Seems too short.

To wonderful folks who drive manual transmissions:
On May 14 Meet;
Can I get the feel of your manual transmissions [to determine if my clunking noise is indeed normal ---> per dealer's diagnostic]? I promise I will not do any WTO, etc, etc.
Thank You

Where are people getting their winter/summer tires swapped?

Hi guys,
Just wondering if there is a decent place to swap winter/summer tires on an E92. Just want to make sure they torque it right. Stealership wants $95 for the swap.

I'm also looking to do tint this spring, anyone know if there are shops that use the Pinnacle F1?

Thanks.

Good advice from ns2000x
I am not sure that this thread, (different forum) would be of any assistance.

Unable to answer on the Pinnacle F1.

Not sure about their prices, but you can check out these places for "swap winter/summer tires"
http://www.autovation.ca/
http://www.ottawatiresdirect.com/ (Great local source for wheel/tire packages)
http://www.talontire.com/bmw_promo.html (Experts in high performance tires with years of experience outfitting enthusiasts with street and track rubber. A great local source for tires and wheels about 1.5 hours drive from Ottawa)
http://dussbrothers.ca (some BMW owners think they are expensive)
Hope that helps
Cheers

I'm driving a 328i, never experienced this. How loud is this clunking noise exactly?

Are they already mounted? Elite did it for $54 for me. I was already getting other service done, so the extra $10 vs a regular place was worth the one appointment convenience.

When did you have elite swap the tires? For that price I don't mind having them do it. I called Otto so I wonder if they misunderstood that I needed to have the tires not on rims?? I'll call elite to check on Monday. Thanks.

P.s. Anyone doing tint this spring? Maybe we can get a group deal

HOnestly...jack and torque wrench


Doing it yourself is much easier...don't have to put dirty wheels in your car either.

But I think any place can install your wheels, find the cheapest place!
