haha that's funny you're from redliners(Eviltwin is floating around on here as well). I take it you are not a young lad(maturity wise) by the way you post on there.

I'm at 224,000 right now. Wasted 110,000 on Y101 on the GB dvd/cd collection. What about yourself? Did I ever send you the links for those blogs?

**Just noticed your posting on Redliners for your tie-rods and what not. You should take her down to Sylvains and work on it over the winter..

tie rods? Me? Nope. I've inquired at No Limits but it was way too expensive. I may hit up a vendor I found on Ebay for new control arms.tie rods, ball joints and RTAB bushings.

Otherwise I haven't posted on RL other than to ask what I should be looking for after having bought the car sight unseen....

I've got the garage. No need to hit up Sylvain for space. Though I'm sure he'd be willing to help. I may call him to borrow some tools!

Oh, depends on your definition of young guy. Is 31 old yet?

I got the links fo rthe blogs, I haven't been collecting for about a week now though. I just can't be bothered. I can't buy anything and the draws are way screwy...

HAHA yeah 31 is young. As I'm 28.

Some parts are expensive, But I picked up my exhaust and alternater off of Mike. Way cheaper then anywhere else. I always check with Mike first for prices then I'll go somewhere else If I can get it cheaper.

Sylvain has always been good to the guys on here when it comes to helping with there bmw's. If you ever look shops for stuff you can't do talk to Sylvain and he'll let you know where to go. Some garages hear the word BMW and they jack the price up..Happened to me with my tint at Shades Anyway you'll have to come on the BMWcc cruises next year(usually 30-50) cars. And occasionally the odd M & M friday night meets.

I used to visit relatives in the GTA pretty often but now that I've got a 20 month old, she's not into the road trips just yet...

Just saw the post, welcome aboard. Hope to see you come out to some of the motorsport of ottawa's event with that car. There are only a handful of BMW enthusiast who represent the BMW's at the local events.

By the way, for the love of your car don't park your car in gear. The parking brake is there for a reason.

Mani-No worries, the parking brake is on. 16 clicks high but it's on.

Panda-I love 'verts. I was looking for an E36 convertible but when this one came up, well....

Thanks for the welcome everyone.

I forgot your car circulates the engine coolant... lol when I get my 5'er (already in the works ) I'll put a bypass on that biatch to shoot hot coolant out the side of the car

Haha.. Ooh, Amanda is gonna come to our Ottawa meets? Finally we'll have our token female
