Finally...the month we have all been waiting for!



March is here!

That means clocks go forward, the first day of spring is a couple weeks away, and of course anticipating the ecstasy of wrapping up all winter projects!

The forecast has a fair stretch of +5* temperatures next week after this HOPEFULLY last cold snap!

We definitely had a cold winter, and a snowy one aswell. I hope to squeeze the snowboard out a few more times! Then of course, start pimping out my E30 and wipe the dust off my motorcycle!!

*DISCLAIMER* I know, its still cold. I am not going warm spring mode yet...just you know, throwing it out there that spring is almost hereeeeee!!!!!

To think three years ago, I had my E46 on the road and insured on March 1st with a 7C day. God damn it. Things were looking good this year until last week' snow storm.

I really, really, hope you are right and that the salt starts washing away by April 1st! Otherwise that groundhog and I have a score to settle - that lying rodent...

April 2nd, Insurance is activated. Can't wait. Hope it warms up quickly like it did last year and we get some rain soon.

Do you guys have any last minute work still to be done on your rides?

Nothing to be done before the car comes out but as soon as it does it'll be getting Inspection II, and I'm debating whether or not to have a ssk installed at that time or if I'll wait and do it myself. I'm also going to get a tint done but I'm not sure how dark to go, or if I should get a clear bra installed on the bumper/hood/mirrors. Lots of decisions! Any thoughts?

Lots, actually! Inspection II, install coilovers, clear bra on the bumper, and get the exhaust done - all as soon as the car is on the road. It gives me goosebumps just thinking about it Gonna be an AWESOME spring/summer!

Trimline (a new Max Sponsor) has some good rates on clear bra installs. If your paint is near perfect, absolutely get it done. It was the best cosmetic investment I made on my previous E46. I'm having my bumper done on the M5 as well.
Tint: do 35% or 20% depending on your taste. I've had 20% on my cars, no issues.
