Hey, I can see my car in that pic...:D

We have lots of meets and stuff; cruises, dinners, just plain hanging around looking like idiots in a parking lot in the freezing ass weather with nothing better to do (or so it semms). You know, usual car freak stuff.

Hope to see you around.

03-13-2005, 10:13 PM
hey thanks for the welcome guys! and miguel...nice pic!! hahaha!!

i want to swap my shifter for a short throw shifter...what is the best brand to go with? pardon teh newbie questions, but this is my first bmw so i dont know much about aftermarket for it...

pics to come tomorrow or tuesday when i pick it up!! :D

03-13-2005, 10:57 PM
Welcome to Maxbimmer *wave*
I gathered that you bougth a 5spd. Great choice. Bimmers are said to have one of the best transmissions around.
As for aftermarket short shifters, I've heard UUC makes a good one. Personally I have one from Motronix Motor Sports. Works great (reduces shift throws up to 40%) And you can pick it up locally for about $100

03-13-2005, 11:01 PM
hey, you're sandeep's friend!

yeah...this is my first bmw, and honestly, when i drove one (328is) for the first time, it felt like that Nissan commercial, you know where the guy walks by the Maxima and touches it, and all the crazy stuff happens? hahahaa....i love the 5spd. it's really awesome to drive.

thanks for the tip on shifters...they arent expensive then. i'll probably pick up one soon.

03-13-2005, 11:04 PM
If you want a BMW made part, you can install a Z3 shifter which reduces throw by a bit as well.

03-13-2005, 11:27 PM
O W0w!!! weLcMoe too maxbimMer!!!

hey thanks everyone! i'm really looking forward to meeting u guys...i will be at the may 8 meet for sure!

so...i didnt get to pick up my car today. :mad: i called the insurance company, and was quoted $485/month to start it now. But when i shopped around, I found another company where i can qualify for a Group Discount (having been to college) after april 02, 2005 and pay $300/month. So i decided to wait two weeks. It sucks b/c i really want my car now, but saving 200$ a month on insurance is *th-up* . So...ok, 19 days left. lol.

03-14-2005, 08:14 PM
So all I have to do is click your signature to email you?
get ready for 10000 emails.

03-14-2005, 08:20 PM
Welcome to MAX from newbie to newbie.

lucky you.. i've shopped around and my lowest insurance quote is like 475 a month.

ah well the bimmer will be worth it.

yeah i've decided to get the car in another post... but its just a matter of waiting to be 100% sure that i have the job and that i can get the financing.soo excited about it, yet bummed and such cuz i have to wait till may i think.

going so insane and i already have the mods and bodykits and such that i want for the car .
isnt that lame i have everything planned out and such yet i dont even have the car.

i'll be at the may 8th meet with or without the new car depending on whether i have it yet or not.

03-14-2005, 09:39 PM
so what do u drive now???

03-14-2005, 10:06 PM
welcome aboard!!

03-14-2005, 11:12 PM
now i drive a 1999 toyota tercel, 5 spd, 2 dr, 20 yr old male, red car.hello insurance
how they clasisfy a tercel as a sports coupe i'll never know. but thats what it is apparently

03-15-2005, 12:32 AM
yeah i paid through my nose for the cav b/c it was a Z24, another "sports coupe"...they will screw you any chance they get.

i'm basically bumming rides off my mom and sister for the next two weeks, or borrowing the civic hatch my sister drives. cant WAIT for my car.
