Yeah we need to cancel the rooms by Wednesday or we get charged. When are you thinking of leaving? I think we are going to have to take two vehicles no matter what.

Brian you going to be in town this Wednesday? I could not meet up last week as I have to get the 72 ready for autox today (and yes I actually did autox this time). Tobias was rather disappointed that we did not meet.

It depends on Jeremy and Yo. We talked about leaving Thursday night, but we would need to get there by 10pm to check into the camp site. We will most likely leave Friday morning. I want to get there early so we can set up next to Russ.

What do you have to meditate in the corner of your garage in front of some alter to the racing gods.

Brand new 07' e92 335i owner here, bought a used one, private party, with ~23k miles. It looks like I'm inheriting some issues from the previous owner (I had the car inspected before buying it but I guess they didn't catch them? Not using them again) and I'm thinking about taking the car into BMW of Des Moines. I was just curious about what experiences people have had with them so I can get an idea of what I should expect and how I should handle them.

Dunlops total of 3 events and 26ish runs. Newton, AutoX - Eddyvile AutoX, Osky AutoX Tires were good for 2 seconds over my Hoosiers though. Loved them!!!

They're not bad. The car is still under warranty if it only has 23,000 miles on it, so they should fix anything. 4/50,000 warranty is standard on BMWs

Looks like someone needs more camber^^^^^^

Why don't you and Tobias just come up to RA with us for ALMS this weekend? You could get a lot of instruction, especially on Canada corner.
