I put the summers on today, praying it doesn't snow next week.

Actually the 'bou at 16 and Crooks. I'll talk to Steven and text you when I get a time next week from him, probably around 9.

Yea, MI is unpredictable!

On a side note, my CPO is up Sunday. I went in today for the last check and they are replacing the TPMS radio unit in the car along with the oil filter gasket. Got a 2013 328xi loaner, pretty peppy little car in sport mode! I'd totally consider the new wagon but the pricing is outrageous. They got the builder up this week and Adam and I were toying with it. $50k for an M-sport base? Yikes. And no RWD options or 6MT, SMH.

Hey guys I just wanted to say I appreciate the warm welcome from u guys and I hope to make a couple life long friends here. I know my car isn't modded to the moon and I did put stickers on the rear window which isn't normal, but know I share a hardcore passion for cars just like you guys.

I live and breath cars and being I'm new here I am nervous to jump into these huge group meets. I know everyone on my bike forums and am one of the top people on there, everyone knows my bike and the mods but I'm a noob here. Sucks but hey it's life.

I just want to thank u guys for allowing me to be one of the group

Oh and ill extend this invite to anyone who wants to drive to Lansing, I have about $700 worth of detailing stuff, anyone who wants their car done for cost of supplies I will do.

First I wash the car then clay bar with special actual pads I put on my buffer
Then m105 with orange pads
M205 with white pads
Sealant with blue pads
Pour boys 50/50 wax
Tire shire
Even have paste that's supposed to stop brake dust
Then I have leatherique wax and cleaner for leather
Aerospace protectant for dash and doors
Spot remover

I have everything and I'm pretty good at detailing. All in all will take 6 hours or more if someone helped me and car looks amazing after. Just extending that to people

Will do, prob around 9am, I'll text you when confirmed this week. Yea mine is clean but I'll prob do a quick foam. Would love to detail it Friday as it's supposed to be 57'!

I do have a few searches and reminders set for e91's; however, the wife is not a fan of wagons unfortunately. After having the new 328xi, I was thinking over the weekend of trying to find one of those but really would like to stick to the M. The new 3'er, even in 335i form, is super tough to find with a manual.

I have a few e90 M's on the serious list, already contacted the dealers, have the CF's and PPI's, ran them on BMW VIN decoder to verify options (I have to have the ZCW) as some dealers take FOREVER to get pics up. Honestly just waiting for pricing to get aggressive again and my buyer to be ready. In Jan/Feb there was in influx of supply and list prices dipped which was good, dried up in March which drove prices back up, but now more inventory, especially '09/'10 stuff coming in driving them back down. I'd love to get an '09 of possible too, time will tell.

Realistically, I'm thinking later this month or May both transactions will occur, fingers crossed Not being in a rush is helpful in finding that diamond in the rough.

Nice offer, anyone local should take you up on that. What buffer/DA polisher are you using?

I follow a similar path with the Flex:
-Meguiar D140 wheel cleaner, super concentrated
-Foam (CG's citrus wash)
-Clay
-Foam (CG's Honeydew snow foam)
-M105 Orange (when needed)
-M205 White
-Menzerna sealant Red or Black
-P21s carnauba wax
-Meguiar D140 wheel cleaner, super concentrated
-1Z Cockpit Matte
-Leather Master Clean/Protect

I really hope that you find the M3 that you want, especially with ZCW.

Agent I usually use about the same stuff as you just invested in some stuff they said was good. Looking forward to fully detailing my car soon. More excited for window tint.
