If you guys decide to do this as a group thing, let me know. I am generally pretty handy and I wouldn't mind helping out and learning as I now fear I may be doing the eibach prokit as well. I am pretty sure Shim is right, and this is a pretty straight forward and simple undertaking and with a few of the right tools, why not?

Awesome! Good guy to know.
I developed good relationships with techs at Rockville Audi and Audi of Alexandria. I still have good hookups at Rockville Audi if anybody needs anything.

Curry's is very expensive. I don't like going to them. Would it be okay if I contacted Sammy for work in the future? I do my own oil changes, suspension, brakes, and other stuff but definitely could use a hookup for harder jobs.

Do you know if Sammy would be willing to rent out his lift at an hourly rate for lets say somebody decided to install their own exhaust? I would be very interested in something like that.

Question, The Audi club has a thing called Tech Session. Basically, sponsors open up their garage on a Saturday to allow Audi club members to use the lifts and tools, sometimes, to work on cars. The cars do not have to be an Audi, just need to be an Audi member. Does anybody know if BMWCCA does something like this?

Thx.

I can try to stop by as well.
I have a cordless impact gun, spring compressors, and other tools. Plus I have experience with suspension installs on Audis and Civics.
Not too difficult.

PSI Power...sounds great.

To answer your question the NCC chapter of BMW CCA does hold similar tech days several times a year.

Thanks again Ase, left you a msg. I'll be there by 8am tomorrow. As for the question about the lift for rent, for the exhaust, you could just by a set of those drive up ramps (backwards of course) and do it from there. Shouldn't be too hard. I'll holler back at everyone when I'm done...

It was very pleasant meeting you Jesse,
I think for the most part your Eibach Springs install went well. I like to post your awesome photos. But it would be a disservice to you if I post it here.
Why dont you create your own Eibach Springs Install and Review thread.
I'll be waiting


I enjoyed the Rock Creek Park Drive tour btw... lets check that Park #13
