I'm gonna call BMW of Ann Arbor and Automotive Techniques to see if they have any slots today.

Anybody have experience with either?
Can't help you there. My facility primarily uses Erhard when we have BMW's come in and I personally use Grand Blanc for my car...

Although, if you are in warren, wouldn't bloomfield be a lot closer than ann arbor, or is that where the car is at?

This. Broski is much quicker to reply than I am. It's right between Allendale and Coopersville. Now it's time to start the winter mods stockpile.

Hey guys, not a E90er but you guys are more active than the E82 side. I'm originally from St. Hgts. but now in NC. I usually visit MI once a month for a week or so, was just up there for Thanksgiving and saw a 335i going down M59 in Waterford on what looked like BBS LM's or reps, anyone on here?

wutup. there are quite a few e9x's rollin' around the area but there are a bunch that i've never met.

i'm assuming you fly up every time you visit? although i tend to drive around a lot for work so i don't want to assume. this thread will probably be more active once the weather warms back up.

I figured that may have been the case, looked like a younger guy so I thought it'd be worth a shot.

Sometimes I fly and sometimes I will make the 12 hour commute by car. I really enjoy the scenery and the serenity that comes with it, I feel very much at peace even though the drive is as long as it is. I will probably be driving up on the 21st and staying until Jan 6th.

When I do come up, I am usually anywhere from Mount Clemens, St. Hgts, Birmingham, and Highland, so I am kind of all over the place.

It was an E92 jet black on gold w/ chrome lip LM's. Windows were slightly tinted, maybe like 20% all the way around.

I might be able to swing a trip to Novi, always like to meet new faces anywhere I go. My available time frame is dependent on my current relationship though, might be with her most of the time, or not with her at all the way things are going.

Btw, your E90 is done up very well, I dig it!
