yeah, get yourself a christmas gift! hook it up! :)

i got myself a heat gun, front and rear H&R sway bars, all new mounting hardware, helicoil kits, some high-temp paint, and i'm putting through another order for parts to refresh my power steering hoses/fill tank and various other things (like one of my heat shields that had corroded through). merry christmas to me! and i convinced my gf to get me the auto solutions short shift kit too ... which reminds me i need to put the info together for her to fax to them :biggrin:

get this (and you'll understand why i feel really lucky) ... my gf thinks jewelry is a waste of money! she'd rather get outdoor gear or such like that ... stuff that actually DOES SOMETHING! my gf doesn't wear any jewelry. the only thing i believe she will wear is an engagement ring/wedding band when i get one (working on that now). she's very down to earth :)

is she kidding? your car won't last much longer? LOL ... i'm planning 300-400k. it should last pretty much indefinitely as long as i keep maintaining it properly.

she says it wont last much longer because stuff breaks all the time....aka i need to replace some worn out parts that are worn of 10 years of use...

actually, i dont mind buying jewlry...its so easy when its holiday time....i take my sister to the mall with me and pick out the shineist thing i can afford lol...ive had lots of success with diamonds!

according to bavauto.com...though im not sure if bavauto's part numbers necessarily match up to the bmw part numbers or if that is the part number for bavautos inventory
