MSC...Got the oil change today. Pretty nice place, the guy who runs it has a lot of experience with BMWs. I was out of there in half an hour. Let me know if you have any questions.

Isn't the event this weekend just a Teen Driving School to teach kids not to text and drive?

hmm... perhaps I was wrong then. Anyways, I think most people are gonna be doing the BMW ultimate driving event there, where you test out the 3-series vs. A4 vs. C-class.

It's two days... today and tomorrow. I know someone going from 2-4pm tomorrow, and I'm going 4-6pm tomorrow.

NE Ohio Events for THIS Saturday (day-after-tomorrow) if you want to join us.

MEET, DRIVE & RESTORATION SHOP TOUR
Since we only have a month left of good weather, we’re going to do a meet and drive this Saturday!
We are meeting at Panera Bread at Harvard and Richmond Rd at 930am.
The drive will depart at 10am, and it’s about a 40-mile drive up Chagrin River and through Kirtland.
The destination is Chardon, OH, where we will be given a tour of Vintage & Auto Rebuilds, a local shop that specializes in concours restorations, especially Rolls-Royce.

If you wish to meet us at the restoration shop, we’ll arrive there about 11:15am.

THE BEST RACE IN OHIO
NOW….for the second event.
Lake County Speedway has the BEST race on the planet twice a year. It is the “Figure-8 Camper Pull”.
This is 15+ vehicles hauling campers or boat trailers, racing all-out on a 1/4mile figure eight track.
The last vehicle moving with trailer attached is the winner.
I have been three times….it is seriously the BEST entertainment, ever.
The regular racing starts at 630pm – if you want a decent seat, meet us there at 6pm – this event sells out.
(camper race usually starts at about 9pm)
DO NOT bring your sports/exotic car – drive your beater.

Details, maps, and directions:

First pictures of my ride...

Hi guys, picked up a 07 335i about a month back, after selling the 04 Audi S4 I had. Always been a Bimmer fan (this is my 4th 3 series but my first e90), switched to Audi in between for about an year.
Took the car out this weekend for a quick photo shoot (shot by yours truly). It is still stock except for the black grills...

Already picked up set of slightly used winter rims/tires combo. I'm thinking of VMR 710s or VB3s for next summer.

Hey everyone, not new to the forum, just never checked in on this thread. Driving a TiAg '06 330i sport package that I picked up last August with only 9k miles on it. It was a twin of Mad Max's 335, minus the turbo and dual exhaust....

Since I had a winter car last year I never worried about driving this in the snow but that will change this year. That being said, anyone know of a set of winter wheels and tires locally to N.E. Ohio they are looking to sell? I know there is a set in the F/S section in Cle but price is a bit steep, although I have not haggled yet.

I would also be interested in a set of winter tires in the 225-40-18 size that I could put on the 162 wheels. Its a good excuse to upgrade to 19's for the summer, right?

Anyone knows of anything, let me know. Thanks!

So how screwed would I be if I decide to drive with no front license plate in the Columbus area. I rarely see a cop as it is anyways, I don't plan on parking in public areas.

Follow up question: If I do get pulled over is the fine for not displaying the front license plate a non-moving violation, meaning just a monetary fine?

I havent really had an issue with no front plate. I leave in in my car though and when I think its an issue, I just throw it up on the dash.

A cop probably isnt going to pull you over for no front plate unless its like a holiday or late at night, and really its an excuse to check if you have been drinking.

If you get pulled over for speeding or some other infraction, they may write you up for no front plate at that time.

Sorry about the delayed response... just got back from vacation.

Yeah, there might be another one coming up soon. I'll post details here later today.

It's hit or miss anywhere in Ohio. I didn't have one on and 6 months later I was driving normally on my way home from work and got slapped with a $140 ticket. Next day, same thing... fortunately the second time I showed them my first ticket and told them I was getting it fixed.

From now on.... license plate on the front. Yeah, it looks better without one, but $140 a pop isn't pocket change either. You can also get some no-drill mounts as well.

Oh yeah, and it's a non-moving violation (e.g. your insurance never hears about it). But, some places allow for a fix-it ticket, while other don't (I had to pay the full fine, which sucked ass).
