Car needs a trip to the dealer, right rear turn signal is on the fritz. It either flickers like a POS or just doesn't work.

sounds like you need to replace the bulb or there's faulty wiring

Yup, gotta be one of those. When it flickers it's sometimes dim, sometimes bright so I'm leaning more towards a bad connection/faulty wiring. Could probably spend an afternoon diagnosing myself, but the dealer close to home and SA is good people.

Guess I'm getting lazy.

Sigh, my $2200 MacBook Pro got dropped on concrete by my brother and was damaged to the point where I needed to order a full replacement. While getting the 2011 refresh is nice, there goes the money that going to be spent on joining the BMW CCA and doing the performance driving school event at NHMS (and the new tires that would've been necessary as well).

Probably going to still hit up New England Dragway in the near future though and finally learn how to actually launch my car (never wanted to do it on public roads). How much wear to my tires should I expect from doing a night of quarter mile runs?

I don't think much from a night, but if you can get a dedicated set of rear tires (drag radials even?) it'll be the single best mod you can do to a tracked car.

Car is all fixed, the SIB tied to the code being thrown said to replace both rear tail light assemblies. So that's what they did.

I was going to PM you the SIB. I've had mine replaced about 3 times already. Something about burned contacts

Started building a kit car today

So speaking of cars....traded in the BMW today. So...anyone want a KW V2 suspension REALLY cheap (with top hats and nuts etc) let me know! Lets say 900 for the suspension as is (I had bought all the parts needed to make it a complete set, so your suspension comes out and the new one goes in with no parts being swapped). If any manual cars want a m3 steering wheel for 150 get in contact with me asap and I can work something out. Otherwise it goes on the car.

Nice kit car! I'm hoping with the extra money in my pocket I can start a project of my own.

Sorry to see you go. Those parts should go quick though! What are your future car plans?

not too bad at HC Boston today for me...went in for a brake light bulb change but then they offered to change my oil, wiper blades, and AC filter. Only had to wait an hour and a half

It's funny, I really only care about hockey during the playoffs...I find regular season hockey unwatchable, worse than baseball to me...but what a playoff run, 3 game 7's! I have to say though, I haven't seen a more classless team than the Vancouver Canucks in a very long time..
