Abba motors in Florence, ma is a pretty good Indy. I use them with total confidence if I find myself in a pinch. If I can plan for work, I go down to Banchwerks in providence. They're awesome

I love hearing that! I'm about to break 60k and love the car. I want to keep it for quite some time and hope to drive it to 120k miles at least... It's been great to me so far. Fingers crossed

Yeah I am thinking about changing the transmission fluid soon and then around 150,000 do something with suspension...all other normal maintenance stuff like brakes and oil changes are done regularly as well

I'm sorry to hear that

And there's been more and more trash coming out to places like Tully's lately.

Goddammit.
I'm sorry to hear that. I had coffee thrown at my driver's door once... another time I think someone tried to take my carbon fiber rear spoiler or something, so out of the frustration it scratch and nick the spoiler and the trunk...

I would be down for a meet. Usually on the weekends I'm able to get out and about. I'm in Central MA but familiar with the area. The Northampton Brewery is always a good place to hang out. Hopefully you'll let the 5 series losers show up!

Maybe a cruise around some of the local back roads. Peru, Savoy, Chesterfield, Worthington etc. all have some nice twists and turns.

The road through Huntington/worthington/chesterfield is a great little drive. That would be fun to do a cruse through some of the Hilltowns and back down.

Sounds like a good time. Looks like my work travel has ceased at least for a little while, so I'll be around.

Don't judge me too hard though. My car is in a bad state at the moment and desperately needs some work. Had a stressful day last week and as a result wasn't paying a hell of a lot of attention to anything when I parked and scratched the hell out of the lower right of my front bumper. Think I'm going to have to sand it and buy an aero lip to cover it. If anyone has suggestions for where to get a decent aero lip rep, let me know. Same for paint, if anyone knows anyone in the area that can paint detached parts like a lip and do a good job, let me know. I looked at a couple places and the pricing was outrageous...

My paint's in rough shape and I've got some dings too - hopefully this will all get resolved soon if Rick at Unique Car Care ever returns my email. At this point it's starting to seem pointless since winter isn't that far now.

I have a jet black aero lip rep that's a pretty good fit. I have no idea what to ask for it. How about $40 if you want it? I think I paid like $150 prior to paint service for it. I used it for under one year. Obviously needs to get repainted due to color. I'm super local so you can come see it. It's jut kicking around the garage with my old bumper right now

That would be awesome, sent you a PM so we can arrange a time and place to meet.

Anyone down for a cruise and meet this weekend? Maybe meet along the parking area on the left just after the VA Hospital on Rt 9W in Northampton. They we could head towards Rt 9 or Rt 143 from there.

This weekend might not be able to happen for me. Just a bit of warning though, enforcement along Route 9 has been extra heavy lately. Noho police as always, as well as Hadley police and a number of Staties.

Sunday might work for me although I expect I'll be hungover tomorrow so don't count on me. I'll keep an eye on this thread and if it comes together I may join in.

Back at you! We'll have to get everyone together for drinks sometime.

Anyone have any suggestions for paintless dent removal in the area?

I've heard excellent things about Munich Motorsports in South Windsor, CT. They're BMW-only and specialize in M cars, but they'll work on non-M as well.
