Yeah, you need to have a bit of a disposable income when it comes to older BMWs. Why do you think so many people we know buy them new and sell them as soon as their warranties are up... LOL. It's not just because they want a newer model.
Would you be referring to me? I just didn't want to have to pay as much for the car to be fixed as it cost Joe. He could have bought a new car for as much as it was costing him to keep that thing running.

LOL, yeah, I was talking about you. You had the car for all of a few weeks before you got rid of it. And that other one you took home for the day took bumps horribly. BMWs just don't seem to be all they are cracked up to be anymore.

The quality on that one just seemed wrong. I don't understand why it took even small bumps so hard. BMW quality is going down I think.

They are trying to cheap out and make stuff for everyone or they are just trying to increase their profit margins too much.

As for the bumps and all, IDK, I don't really recall that part too much, I just thought it had no nuts to it for the price tag that was on it.

they are priced pretty high, I returned it because I just couldn't see where the price tag came from, the quality wasn't there.

I got myself a new trunk light
http://www.dx.com/p/8-5w-360lm-6500k...4#.Uzx4qfldWSo

The thing is really bright, I just need to mount it into the car and run some extra wires to the higher point that I want this in the back of the car. I'm tired of not having enough light in the back of the car when I'm loading stuff in there.

Last wednesday I bought a Smith and Wesson 9mm pistol, today picked it up and shot off a whole box of training bullets to get used to it. before this 9mm I had only fired a .38 special which has a lot less recoil.

A .38 special should have more kick than a 9mm unless you are using a low powder load.

I never have enough of these damn things:


With as much as my calculators stay on all the time along with some other devices, I really needed some rechargeable to be able to not blow so much cash on batteries all the time.

And to keep the inside of my helmets cleaner..


I got the idea after playing some paintball with some friends and wearing some on my old gear from when I was active duty. We used to do similar stuff when we would be dressed up in all our gear so that the bullet proof vests and all wouldn't start wreaking like a champ
