Sweet. Sounds like you're going to get to put your 4X4 to good use tomorrow! I ordered some new rear tires and I sure hope they come in today. There's no way I'm going to be driving in that stuff on slicks.

I just went through Discount. They said they'd price match Tire Rack and they'd have 'em by today. I got the same tires as last time, Hankook Ventus v12 Evo.

Speaking of track season, someone just posted a cool video from an autocross. I really want to do one. Who does those around here?

Sure, I'll be doing mine soon also. Have to go find out where they are selling for $5/quart. I'll be using Mobil 1. I also have the OEM oil filter wrench too. And I have ramps.

Awesome. Let me know when you're doing it, and I'll bring over some beer or whatever. How often do you change yours?

What does BMW recommend? Feeling like I need to change pretty soon, especially after a few dyno runs.
