Yes. Settings/Lighting, and for Sherwood: you can program your hotkeys (1-6) to jump straight to Settings/Lighting.

Is anyone going to Critical Mass tonight?

Other than that, does anyone here trailride? I ride Terry Hershey and Sabine Trail often.

I hate cyclists sometimes... I got stuck behind a biker on single-lane West Alabama the other day for so long (because he wouldn't move off the street) that a cop pulled me over after he got tired of following me at 10mph for several minutes, LOL.

Anyone know some good roads to go driving on? I feel like I can never really let my car loose in this town....

though I "raced" an e36 m3 yesterday, obviously not even close to a contest, within the end of 2nd gear from a 35 mph run, there were buslengths between us. Really cool guy and I definitely love the M cars

Youll definitely have go out of Houston to find some decent roads. There's a bunch of nice roads down at Iowa colony heading towards Houston MSR. Also there's a track event at MSR in April.

Might as well drive to Austin and make a weekend trip out of it!

Also, anyone know good places for an amateur photo shoot? 3000 Crawford and the Edwards 24 parking garage are all I've got.

Seriously the roads anywhere around H-town cannot even compare to Austin or the hill country. It's just too damn flat lol.

I drove one time to Galveston and took a ferry to some other beach. A day trip there would be worth it just to take pictures of a ferry full of bimmers!

affordable auto glass, in the hillcroft and 59 area - I have an e90 so it might be a different price - the best quote I got for OEM glass was from Safelite for $350
