I also go to AAS, PCA, BMWCCA @ Marina/Alameda. I never go to UFO and stopped going to Lotus club because of their courses SUCK.
Cool video! No, I wasn't but my friends went. Did you see a white genesis and/or a dark maroon 240sx? If you're going to the next one, keep me posted and I'll try to make it out

How do you navigate through the course? It looks so confusing with the pylons sparsely spread across the road.

Damn I was hoping my waterpump/t-stat would survive the 100k mark. I'll be checking if the SA's say yes because of CPO or no because can not replicate even if I have a video showing.

Coming down to SJ? If so, let me know in advance because I need to stop by the dealer to have them check my safety restraint and airbag lights and I need to get the intake back to you as well.

Pretty sure it's still the same company. Notice the phone numbers are 1 digit apart. I can't remember if SVC bought them or they changed names. Definitely didn't like JLevi though, bought sidemarkers from them that were shit and they didn't honor a refund. They wanted to send me new ones at "their cost" which actually meant their wholesale price. And my painted kidney grilles from them had little little pieces of dirt or something under the paint, looked like bubbles.

Interesting.. the sites are pretty much identical. I think Mike, the owner of SVC, bought out Jlevisw less than a year ago iirc. Well, either/or I hope they're able to do the AA in-house.

Yeah I think my final inspection at Stevens Creek is Tuesday morning. I don't know whether to pay for the service or wait til my car craps out to do work. Let me know where you're at Tuesday.
parts/labor
Water pump $600?
T-stat $300?
Coolant flush again $100?
Intake manifold gasket change ???
serpentine belt change ???
While they're in there check for valve clearance ???
motherfu**********k I'd spend $2k for maintenance but I can do more than that with indy's.
Should I might as well bring this to Performance Technique?

You look ahead. lol I didn't walk the course that day, only got a ride from my buddy in his e90. I went there late cause I had a soccer game in the morning, drove over there asap then swapped tires and got the car ready.

I've been doing this for 4-5 years so it might be why I don't need to really walk the course to know where to go as long as I look ahead. I usually try to walk twice, though.

I will be going to the next event for sure, I think it's April 21st @ Oakland.

Damn! I need to vent!

Currently getting my front LCI M Tech bumper installed with OEM PDC sensors. The problem I'm running into is the damn sensors are hitting the bumper reinforcement bar. Only thing I can do right now is cutting into the bar for clearance to make it fit since the holes are already drilled and painted. If it wasn't drilled and I knew about the fitment issues I would've just zip tied the damn things behind the bumper and get it coded out and be done with it. All my fault for not doing enough research!

Rant over!

At least a good thing is that my wheels are finally here! I know not too many people will like this finish and will think it's chrome. It's full polished.

Dewweet. I'm thinking about getting one too but after seeing the promo videos for the Black edition, I've come to the conclusion that my lifestyle isn't wild enough to spend ~$400 on a small gadget that I might end up losing... or breaking.
