I need to get my power steering line installed. Just been too busy at work.
I usually like to make the drives very early in the morning 6-7am to avoid bikers, cops and traffic in general Weekdays sometimes are better for me - I'd like to save weekends for the fam as much as possible. A good meeting point is the walmart in dahlonega

Well I'll be headed back home to Fayette Co. this weekend, but if you guys are up for a drive/meet I can always come back up. Weather will probably be as nice(er) as it's going to get for a while.

Eric, wow had no idea you had so many mods on your ///M... Can't wait to see it!

Not that many, just the norm. for the M. Lowered, wheels, aFe filter and scoops. LEDs interior lighting, Mteck aluminum pedals and painted reflectors. I'm thinking about installing a set of Ground Control coil overs kit. I want to keep my EDC. I have the gauges on order. Oh yeah, I forgot my UUC Corsa exhaust. This month, I'm having my brake fluid flushed and steel braided brake lines from UUC installed. I'm thinking about getting the EVO3 short shift kit from UUC. I might get the intake elbow from either Dinan or aFe, haven't decided yet. Plus I would like to get my car tuned also. Whenever we get together, you can take it for a drive.

Speaking of mods, what dealership has a mod friendly service advisor?
I'm thinking of an ess vt2-625 which supposedly is bolt on and fully reversable

I take mine to United BMW, they are pretty cool about mods. I would not worry so much about the SA as much as I would worry about the Techs. They are the ones that will write up everything that you have done to your car. Once it is in their files and submitted to BMWNA, nothing can be done to reverse that. I know the parts manager there and some of the guys at the parts dept. I usually talk to them and ask them on who my tech should be for any service that I need done. Some of the techs are cool and don't care what you did, unless it will damage the car on the long run.

Yeah, I guess you are right. Too many for being not that many. When you look at the car, it does not look like anything. Until you actually start listing all of the stuff I've done so far. Funny how it is.

I wish I can meet you, but I have to work. Much rather be in the mountains going through the turns up there. We need to do a group drive, been saying that for about 3 months now, but nobody seems to be interested. Oh well.

Just got back. It was a blast! I love driving weekdays. So much different than weekends.

I prefer to keep it small less unwanted attention by locals and blue lights. less logistics, higher overall average speed, and people aren't tempted to go beyond their limits.

I'm sure there is interest, it's just needs organization and planning not too early and not too late (haha like what I do)

Next time I take a day off, I'll let you ahead of time and see if you are up for a drive.
