That might not be a bad idea... Theoretically, we could get our cars up, worked on (by us) and down in about 20-30 min each...

It would work but I am pretty sure their liability laws would prevent us from access to the service bays...

yeah its sure is hot...summer is officially here. I am not a big summer fan, aside from the heat, unlucky things happen to me. Already starting off the summer with a $350 hole in the pocket thanks to some punks trying to steal my car radio off my Civic. I mean, who steals car radios these days, the very premise sounds absolutely eighties

FrankoQ... is your driveway relatively flat??? We will need to jack cars up to get this done...
Hey guys. here is a pic of my driveway.
My head mechanic is there waiting for you.
it is relatively flat. I'll say the 2 cars closest to the garage will be on flat
surface. the 2 behind will barely have a little slope.

hey hey nice pad

Thanks for the pics!! You are more than accomodating This is awesome stuff...

It looks like we can do 2 cars at the same time, that should work. It'll be fun.

At the same time, the folks waiting for their turns can help themselves to one of many toys in your garage j/k

Frank, you're gonna have a restless sleep tonight. Your monaco blue will be great companion to AJ's car which was starting to feel decidedly lonely among the sea of sparkling graphite at the last meet...

So besides the lux, what other mods do you have in mind?

It's only 10:12PM...
A long night indeed.

as for mods...
Dealer will install the trunk spoiler.
I just did not want to mess with that.
I have the following items ready to install:
roof spoiler, alarm, mud guards.
going to tint the windows (35%) after I pick up tomorrow.
So at this point, my wallet is hurting.
yet, I was getting ready to get the M-shifter but now, I
reallocated those funds to get the lux rings.
That's IT... for now.

Yes I'm going to the place he recommended.
About blacklines... I thought about it but they just did not make it to
the top 5 mods. maybe after I see yours in person.
I forgot, I want a front spoiler too. but that will have to wait until
my wallet heals.

Sorry, I went to happy hour.

I'm kinda scared now. I was talking with Patrick a technician at BMW and he told me my warranty will be void on the headlights if I do anything to them. Is this true or is he just trying to scare me?

Your warranty on the headlights will only be void, if a problem arises and the dealer can prove that somehow the mod directly caused that problem.

You guys better not mess up geeslice's car.
