you can just use some copper paste on the brake hub...after scraping off the old rust with a metal brush..

Has anybody locally been dealing with this 29.2 software issue? I guess my car will come with 30.?. Just curious because it seems like a major PITA.

29.2 isnt a big deal, i think alot of the issues are just in peoples heads...as for the hubs looks good man antiseize is basically the same idea as copper paste only ones copper and i think the others nickel or something? idk either way looks good...

i think the e90m3 looks better than the e92m3. but for 335 i like the e92, obviously haha. i think the m3 just looks too bulky for the coupe version... not that i would kick it out of my garage or anything

I like the E90 335 more than the M E90 for some reason. I love the E92 M though.

I'd love to get to drive a new M. I drove my friends old 318 with M everything on it a couple years ago. Had M dash, suspensions, engine etc. Do you work at the dealer here in Nashville as a tech?

i think i would still take my modded 335 over an m3. i just cant justify the price difference... and thats not saying anything negative about the m3. i think thats just saying alot about the 335

Why did you have wrist surgery? Who did it?

I had a wrist fracture plated a few years ago, by Dr. Weikhert.

Thats who did my surgery haha

I broke my wrist 4 years ago, my Distal Radius(however you spell it) and
my growth plate closed up. So2 years later my Ulna kept growing and they cut out some bone and put a plate in my arm.

Recently my wrist started to hurt, because there was a piece of bone floating around. Now its taken out. My arm hurts haha

Well, the new tires are on and hopefully this whole ordeal is finally settled. I will say that the service and parts guys were extremely helpful and understanding through the whole situation, specifically Ryan Lewis and Mike Shanks. Great guys.

Oh, and no vibration in the new tires! Thank God!

And Volks, I think I saw you when I came to pick up my car, you were on the side talking with some guys by the back of a F150, I think.
