What about we tentatively say Wednesday at around 6:30pm, subject to crazy Calgary weather? I'll probably be up in Edmonton on Thursday/Friday, so that rules out the end of the week for me.

Was thinking the Canadian Tire parking lot .. toward the Shell / Home Depot end? Wonder if that big mountain of snow has melted yet? LOL

Sounds good guys!
I'm going to see Fast and Furious saturday night! Then for the hell of it I'm going to cruise around the city since I'll have my new suspension and tune, I'm very curious to see how many tards in ricer civics will be out driving like morons!

Oh the excitement hahaha

I talked to BMW today, car will be done tomorrow!!!!!


Get this, the reason my transmission was not working is the wire was un plugs for my DS mode!?!? I have NO idea how that could have been done...

Bad news guys, the BMW dealership was not able to do the alignment on my suspension today!.. The cars to low.. They are going to try and send it to harper tire on Monday as they have sent these things to them in the past. I'm hoping they can get it done and I'll get the car back on Tuesday.

Any other places I could get the alignment done next week? Even tunerworks is not sure if they can do it because they say I may need a Euro clamp? What a head ache..

The fenders cover the tires its so low! I have no Idea why the HR sport springs dropped it 3" lol

There are lots of places that will do alignments for lowered cars. Check out Integra Tire on Macleod trail. They usually do my alignment and my cars were all low. I believe Precision Alignment also does lowered cars.

I just read your post haha! So updates, last night at 1 AM, I googled a few forums and found out about integra tire and precision alignment! I woke up at 8 am, and at 9 phone down to integra tire and the guy said no problem, get here by 10 and we can do it! So I pick my car up at BMW -- sooo sexy btw--- and then take it to iontegra tire. Mike takes on look at it and said hellz no.. Its to low, I can't get it on the hoist!!!... So now I'm hyper ventilating thinking omg.. What am I going to do? So I then phone precision auto and the lady says there was a cancellation and I can come down for noon! So I drove down and here I am, just waiting at precision to see iof they can actually do it! Fingers crossed!!! If so the tune goes in tonight, but omg the wheels and drop look incredible. Just to note the new dinan shocks and struts are amazing!! The car feels better then stock by a mile, so stable, no bounce at all very stiff yet not, and with the drop its un believable!! Sorry for any bad typo's I'm on my blackberry lol

Best of luck with it .. can't wait to see the car.

I'm too scared to drop mine, with all of Calgary's pot holes, ramps, and such like. When I pull out of my garage, the gap between the concrete and side skirt is 1" ! I might do something mild though, if my new summers don't look right.

Speaking of which, I need some ideas for wheels .. I was about to order some VMR v710s, but my parts guy was dragging his heels, and now they are out of stock until mid June. Can't wait that long!
