currently calling for 4C 40% chance of showers with wet snow, but there is a warming trend over the next few days after Saturday up to 11C by wednesday.

That forcast could change, and hopefully the warmth comes a bit sooner, and constant driving on the course should keep any worries of flurries melted and clear. I'd be worried most about the rain, few extra PSI will help channel wettness, but again its only a 40% chance so doubt its gonna rain all day. It won't be the first autoX this year with the wet stuff if it does

That being said got the last few parts for my car yesturday, and very happy the car will actually be in proper form to finish the season, next to my crappy tires (well they are decent in the wet ) and really looking forward to the double header.

Its been a trip of a year!!!!!!!!

Won't be running the M3 Saturday damnit. BUT! I will be running a seriously sick-ass ride. (If I can hook-up) I'll be untouchable.

Really? Valve dropped too? How? Retainer broke?

Weird, I've seen a rocker break on an S54 before, tech at the dealer just replaced it and all was well...

That sucks dude. Was looking forwards to seeing some good driftos.

Retainer pop off, valve dropped. How do I explain to BMW that their OEM rocker (that I just bought last month for the CSL cams) was faulty and caused all that damage? Through a letter from my lawyer?

This new ride will be ridiculous and I don't think it is even possible to drive is straight unless it 25C or hotter.
