Fixxfest would be about 45-60 min drive for you depending where in Tampa you are. Definitely worth it.

As for your misfire....you check coils and plugs yet?

Valve cover gasket? It should be a 4 hour job, for me it was at least. Most important part is having little containers for all the nuts and bolts that you take off because there are lots.

I'm going to try to make Fixxfest, though I'll be in my GTI or Volvo. My BMW lives in Maine.

Will be cool to meet some fellow nutcases. I'm in Port Charlotte.

There is definitely a lack of wagons in are area. Iím used to being a lone wolf, haaaa.

You should also check out EuroTripper, thatís close to you in Fort Myers in February. Huge Euro show at JetBlue Park. I will most likely hit that one also.
