Hey, you can borrow my jack. I live right by North Park and work in Wexford.

I'm making a trip to Virginia this weekend so you can use it all weekend if you'd like...

bmw lexus mercedes perspective

getting alignment on wednesday and was planning a half inch more drop as it dosent bottom out even with 2-3 people in car on bumpy roads.
should have done this the first week i got the car.

Went to boston this past weekend for a BMW CCA AutoCross event did about 25 runs, drove a

09 m3
03 540
00 328
03 530
06 330 convertible
95 m3

best sound 03 540 with dinan exhaust mind boggling scary exhaust sounds better than 09 M

best handling and balance goes to the M3's: 09 M3 was far ahead of all the other cars, 95 M3 best bmw track car ever made...

all modded suspension engine except for 09 m3

I also spent a lot of time with a Lexus/mercedes Master Tech and BMW Master Tech

Lexus-04-06 330 best car they ever made >06 unreliable constant problems
03-05 Mini cooperS most reliable
Mercedes stay away from e330 e350 is a much better car.

BMW could go on for days....

Go lower.

Where do you get your alignments done?

I'm living in Butler at the moment, but I still only know of Sewickley Porsche being the only place for lowered cars.

No, unfortunately they do not. I'm only 20 so I figure they are older.

And right by the Butler/Knoch borderline by BC3. BC3 is a 3 minute walk from my house. haha.
