    I spent some extra time on the wheels today and it's amazing how well Z2/Z6 shines them up. These wheels sure are pretty when they are all polished. Blinding. How many coats are you up to now on Silver? ;)

    Ok, everyone. Are you all trying to get out of going to the meets, by saying that your car is in the repair shop. Rogor is there a throphy for most accidents on an M? Lets be carefull out there.
  • sdmike2sdmike2 Posts: 2,909
    7? Wow. My record for a weekend is 2. Ok, we need to know if this effort is paying off. Any of the posters here find the club or this group from being "carded" by one of us??

    Coolest Thing I discovered that I didn't know (and I did a lot of homework):

    That the ENTIRE rear seat folds down. LOL

    Thing I wish the M had (Least Cool Ommission)

    I wish I could still operate the windows and sunroof after the key is out (until I open the door)...like my mitsu.

    no no i got the check from the insurance co. sold it to chrysler as is. in my opinion, everyone made out good. i got good deal on this car, and insurance check, chrysler got that car sold A LITTLE more than they should have got, but the guy that got it can get it fixed at a fraction of the price, so he made out too! only people that didnt make out was the guy that hit me's insurance company. lol

    another M hurt????? well, good luck repairing it, sounds like it wasnt to bad..

    If someone out there in 300M land IM'ed me tonight and I did not respond, I am sorry!

    My wife and her girlfriend were using my screen name doing some travel hunting(mite be driveing into San Diego soon). So it wasn't me that did not respond. I did not not find out until after they signed off.

    BTW, flying into Las Vegas this weekend with the wife and relatives from Mexico. I am staying at the Treasure Island. Any Vegas "M" guys out there?

    I looked up those Bridgestone SO-3 Pole Positions on the Tirerack website and those look sweet! Mike you did your homework those tires(W speed rated)! They got very high marks from users of these tires!

    It seems that Bridgestone has the best lineup of high performance tires in the industry. Their tread ware rating is far better than Pirelli(who I would rate as the second most complete line of high performance tires).
  • sdmike2sdmike2 Posts: 2,909
    Go see Mystere at Treasure Island. Since you're staying there you should be able to get awesome tickets. You be sure to let me know if you're coming to San Diego! Me and Big Red will be happy to see ya!

  • 300michael300michael Posts: 1,815
    I did respond to your (6165) message, with a Message (6178)about the tires,if that is what you mean by IM'ed you tonight.
  • phases78phases78 Posts: 471
    i went digital tonight. went to get a camera and found a camcorder with a digcam built in, for less. its awesome! its charging so ill have some pics for you all with the duals tomorrow! as a matter of fact, ill probably redo my whole website tomorrow..
  • sdmike2sdmike2 Posts: 2,909
    =Internet Messenger, I think. Gil, if you have any questions about San Diego hotels or other things don't hesitate to shoot me a note. I'll be glad to help.

    I thought they didn't allow just pedesterians into it. I thought you had to be in the business to get in. If they let in everyone, I may try to make it there. What are the dates again?
  • sdmike2sdmike2 Posts: 2,909
    Little did you know that buying an M will force you to do other things...like buy a basslink and a digital camera. LOL. Seems that Photopoint has gone belly-up, so it looks like I'll have to fight for my $19.95 back and do a new web page of my own. *sigh*.

    Yes 300Michael, SDMike is right about the IM being the Internet Messenger. Someone IM'ed me and said "Hello Gilbert".

    SDMike. Thanks for the info on the show at the Treasure Island in Vegas(btw, what kind of show is it?). Also, thanks for the offer to help with a hotel in San Diego. I was planing on staying at Big Red Acres! Home of the Beautiful Zanioed over and over agained Red 300M. But I guess it's always booked up! *_O

    We stayed at the Hilton Paradise Point two years ago. It was nice then and I was informed it is even better now with a renovation just completed(but price is higher now!). Any other good places since Big Red Acres is booked up year around? LMK

    Mystere is a Cirque du Soleil show of amazing acrobats, dancers, comedy, music, and visual sensations. I have seen it 3 times. It's awe inspiring and overwhelms the senses. I feel like I'm 5 feet off the ground for days afterwards. Cirque has another show at the Bellagio called "O" that's even more amazing (it all centers around water). O is also the most expensive ticket in Vegas, but at least it brought the price of Mystere down! LOL. Check this link, and click on "view the video".

    What kind of hotel are you looking for and what part of town do you want to stay in? There are a million choices, as you might expect. There are beach and bay resorts, inland golf resorts (one about 3 miles from me), large chain hotels, budget hotels, etc. There are a lot of places in an area called "Hotel Circle" (duh) that are pretty centrally located and resonably priced. The beach is about 10 minutes, the Zoo is about 5 minutes, downtown is about 10 minutes, etc. What kind of budget are you working under? What do you plan to do while you're here (golf, beach, sea world, zoo)? that might help.

  • The parts alone were $806, the labor plus alignment was $426 so $1232 total. Sure makes that $500 factory upgrade look like a bargin!

    Grr, I got hit by the accident bug.. =( Last night pulling out to goto perkins and just bumped the front of my girlfriends escort. Just pushed in a little part of her front fender and just left a scuff on my bumper. Sigh... Nothing I can't fix with a rubber mallet, rubbing compound and some touch up paint. =)

    Something you might want to consider if you want the dual but don't want to cut the facia, you could look for that muffler with a single exit, and with a 2 1/2 input output, then just do one double tip on it. Same effect, just with one less tailpipe. =) Just and idea!

    Also, me being in MN, makes the CA get together look mighty tempting... Hmm, more info.. =)
  • Been lurking on site for a wwhile. Great to watch all the mods. Ive been pretty conservative, logos off, mud flaps, truck power outlet. Today I used turtle wax black chrome polish on intake and air box. Looks really good. Hope to join club soon. Keep the mods comming.

    What kind of camera/camcorder did you get? How much did it cost? I keep looking for a new one because my current and very cheap JamCam 3.0 sucks. I got it for $50 and then it had a $30 rebate, though, so it wasn't that bad. Post pics as soon as you can of your new black beauty. Are you gonna start a new site, or just use the current one that shows your white M?
  • phases78phases78 Posts: 471
    its an rca camcorder but, im likin it anyway. it was 398.84. 2.5" lcd colorview screen, takes digital pictures and 400x digital zoom. ill get some pics taken today, but i have to wash the car first ;)
    im gonna keep the same website, just delete all the current pics on it, and replace them, get rid of one of the pages... couple other things. we'll see! but ill post a pic of the duals up here in a couple minutes......

    P.S. IM stands for 'instant messenger'

    If and when you get to Vegas. There is one of the hotels at or near the MGM Grand, and on that side of the street, which has a fully loaded 300M on display in the front entrance of the hotel. I was there in April on business, I'm not sure what they call the colour but it was the tan not the platinum. I asked one one of the security guards if I could borrow it, he wasn't impressed.

    you guys with your accidents made me feel better about ripping my tire on that curb the other nite--luckily you didnt have too much damage on your crashed M's--I've had my share of mishaps in the past--tore off my right outside mirror--pulled off the front facia on a high parking bumper---luckily the mirror is no big deal--about $200 installed and the front facia was straightened and resecured by my buddy at the local auto body shop for just $35--maybe we have to surround our M's in foam rubber :-)

    Blackice: welcome to the group ---you definitely should join the 300M Enthusiasts club for its benefits and camaraderie. Rogor and others are working on getting some nice logoed caps for the club members. The last apparel sale featured club logoed shirts--not sure if any left but I would think eventually they will have another sale on them.

    keep up the posting--WE ARE NOW NUMERO UNO--yes we're the most active site on Edmunds---68 posts compared to second place BMW 3 series with only 24 posts--we should get lots of attention now!--post some nice pics of your M's for the curious visitors to see.

    Was putting the monthly coat of Zaino on my M yesterday, and noticed a few more small chips just above the headlights. I think I'm going to go for the bra, and I like the one you're sporting on BigRed.

    Anyhow, my birthday is coming up, so want to add this to my list. Can you tell me where you got it?

    Also I see a few posts about folks here using IM. Is there a list of IM users from this board? It would be cool to add you guys to my "buddy list". My IM screen name is "FiveStarrGuy" (the plate should be here any day now).

    Also, the Badyear dealer finally cured my 50-70mph shimmy. Don't know what they did, but it's gone. Once again I'm enjoying the "smooth as glass" highway performance I'd come to love about this car.

    While Zaino-ing the car yesterday, I noticed that one of the lug nuts seemed to have been replaced by a standard nut, which pi**ed me off that the guys who worked on it didn't tell me that they'd lost the factory one, and replaced it with this ugly old one. Once I was done with the wax job, I made my way to the Goodyear place, showed the manager who said that the chrome tops of the nuts sometimes break off, went in the back and brought out a brand new one, put it on the car, and apologized, saying "with a car as pretty as this, I'd have been angry too!" Little does he know that I have no loyalty to these tires, which are wearing very well with 22k on them!

    Anyhow, looking forward to hearing from you sdmike!
