Thumbs down my EGG died last night.....



Last night at a house party I took a guy up the street 'cause he wanted a ride in the EGG. Well, we came back walking.

I was a couple blocks away and as I was powershifting to 2nd gear, something in the tranny went. None of the gears engage and as I was coasting to a stop I could hear some knocking around in the front end. I hope it's just an axel. We pushed it uphill for atleast 1km to a plaza where it's staying 'till Tues when it's getting towed to Altech downtown.

I had a feeling the little EGG was gonna crack soon after the day-to-day beating I give it. No BMW could ever take that... guaranteed. I'm surprised it lasted this long!

P.S. I'm glad I didn't go to Cayuga Fri night, imagine that tow bill!

BMW BMXer sumed it up. When the E30 is finally finished, you won't see it on the street anymore.... it's gonna be strictly a track car fit for a trailer. No more show, no more cops pulling me over for no reason... i've got a new project in the works for the street.
