Hey guys! I just moved to Vegas, currently stationed at Nellis. I'm coming from NC, but originally from Detroit area. I'm looking into getting into the car community alot more. Are there any regular car meets in the local area or any big car events?

I have an 07 Montego Blue 335I with a few mods, I have a set of coilovers I'm looking to install if anyone local has some experience and wants to lend a hand one of these weekends. I like to do all the maintenance myself, but that seems like a little more than I'm comfortable with doing without some experience.

I'm looking for places to rent close to the base, I was told specifically the 89081 and 89084 zip codes...any info on those places? I'm new to the area.

Thanks for the help guys, I'm looking forward to meeting new people!

Welcome to the area! There are weekly meets, but they are held on Wednesday nights . Some of us up in N Vegas are going to be starting up meets soon on the weekends. BimmerFest, MFest, and Wuste are all coming up in May, look like you moved here at the right time. I'm willing to help you out on your coil overs and maintenance if needed. I have pretty much all the tools needed also. Be careful on moving too close to the base, there's a pig farm somewhere and depending on where you move, you'll have a horrid smell out side.

I'll definately look you up for help on the coilovers once I get into a place and get settled. Which area would you recommend for renting?

IMO, between N 5th and Decatur is good. It's far enough to avoid the pig farm smell and still close to the base (about 15-25 mins ). Then again, I'm new to the area also. Got here at the end of Nov.

lol pig farm smell....last thing I'd expect near middle of Vegas...but AF bases always seem to be placed in the worst areas lol.

I keep hearing about crime this and that in Vegas, alarmingly so. I'm especially seeing the Honda guys get their cars/parts jacked....is this something centralized with Hondas like it usually is on the west side of the country/are the bmw's fairly safe around vegas?

According to what I was told when I move here, crooks go far the 'average man car' which was defined as Hondas, Toyotas, Fords, Nissans, etc. The funny thing is, they also said that they won't mess with Mercedes, BMW, Audis and Ferrari's. I haven't had any issues, but then again I live and what considered as the 'nice' part of town .
SN: I did just see a post on facebook about an Acura was left on jacks in a parking garage on the strip. They took the wheels, steering wheel, and something else. Since parking always suck, just use the valet service.

Cars and Coffee

Anyone down to meet up and roll down to Cars and Coffee Saturday? I think I'm about to start going the first Saturday of the month.

For the newbies, Cars and Coffee is a big meet that have all types of cars from Exotics, to jdm, Domestic, European, Italian, you name it, you'll probably see it. . It's every Saturday from 8:00am to 11:00am at 9500 S Eastern Ave in the Sansone Park Place shopping center (215 and Eastern). I don't know about every Saturday, but I'm down for the first Saturday of every month.

I try my best to be helpful . The crazy thing is, most parking garages have cameras everywhere. Hopefully, who done it got caught... or had the crap beat out of them.

Deal of the Week: ER FMIC

Another good deal. $700 for ER, you can't beat that! Don't be a fool like me and spend over $1,500 for a FMIC and CP.

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=822588

SN: Let me know if someone see a good deal on an LSD or upgraded turbos. My days of buying new parts are over! #BargainShopper

Try Elite Customs across from SW Bimmers (where 702 Motoring use to be) Decatur and Hacienda just South of Trop on the Right hand side. You can ask for Jay, tell him R.G. sent you
