Call all around starting at 9am,...
You can't buy smarts. Did he not see the roundabout sign?

The wind keeps blowing my hood closed. Luckily it hasn't beamed me in the noggen, yet. (Knock wood)
I want to lock my hood open by locking the hood shock piston shaft without marring the surface. ...
The Americana is 20 mins from me on a Sunday morning, hmmm. Let's see some sun first.
I feel for you, blew my motor (Spun #3 rod bearing) in a right hand sweeper with a baffle. Pocono North, banking.
Now I short shift into a higher gear and keep the revs down at track days in...
Those seem fine. Try taking them to a wheel shop and see what the balance looks like, and runout (wobble)
If you are using hub centric rings the wheels should not wobble. I ran 16" E39 fitment wheels with rings for years.
It's the wheels or tires, especially since it's at that speed. For some reason...
I have mine tied to the inner fender well. Got the hose and adaptor from my local Aeroquip dealer. Moreland Hose in Hempstead NY.
Here is how to find the dealer, they are owned by Eaton....
An egg sandwich at my work bench out in the garage is about as close as I could get, or would want to.
Losing it for the Modern/minimalist look in Architecture personally. Couldn't live in it....
Bump because the pics are cool.
I have been driving vans for years. If you decide to buy a van get an Econoline 250 or 350. Bigger brakes, axles, GVWR etc.
Ford makes the best vans, end of story.
The 5.4 gasser is plenty of...
I have found 37-38 psi hot is a good setting for that tire.
Carbon fiber bumpers are dangerous on any car. You'd kill someone if you hit a pedestrian by accident. Razor sharp shards of CF=Death
Plus it can't be fixed. Better off with a new fiberglass or...
The end of an era the S65 is, damn shame. :(
The S65 is the last normally aspirated M motor for the forseeable future. Love to take the whole drivetrain, 6 speed and all and hack it into my car....
Had the same problem did the same thing.
I use keyless entry and it's a summer car it's a non issue.

You could always wrap a strip of duct tape around the lever and jam it on. Once that gets hot it will never come off.
Does it really matter who made it?
It fits so many models there must be a ton of quality OE parts new right now.
Ultimate daily driver. 2001 2.5RS automatic.
You are about an hour away from Lime Rock Park. Great place to enjoy your new car in it's natural environment.
FWIW, I am on Long Island.
Best way to avoid fading your brakes is to use them less.
Try five laps without using the brakes at all. It will teach you more than you realize.
Brake ducts will help alot when you are on the...
Might as well add to the collection.
Here's what pics I have from years of Track days.

Bump so I can find it.
Can't wait to drive on it!
