HOT DAMN!
i just got home from school, went to work this morning, and i had the mindset to put the winters on this weekend, i get outta work, and its SNOWING!!
i was terrified to drive, specially since i'm on summer tires AND my ABS just recently failed me, surprisingly enough, i still had GOOD traction, cept when i pushed her through the turns, thats when it got fun!

Well, i dont feel too bad now!

My summers are coming off on Tueday and getting replaced with Blizzaks H-Rated (190-200KM/HR).

Costing me $140 per rubber installed. Considering last year when i slid on the ice and ****ed my car up i thought i'd go with the best winter rubbers..


I was going to store it but naaa, too much fun driving in the winter with RWD.


Any suggestions on where to go for under coating?

I wouldnít mind finding out what rust proofing is best for the BMW. Iíve heard that Krown or Rust Check are both good.

I asked the dealer and then told me not to rust proof my car. They said, with the double sided galvanized metal, itís not needed; BMW doesnít rust. The fact that my 97 BMW was rusting from the inside at metal joints/weld spots concerns me. I want to rust proof my car.

This is something im looking to do also, if you find any good deals on this drop me a line, maybe we can get a few guys in and get them to drop the price a little bit
