    It's a beautiful Fall day today. And I gotta see if I can fix a cupholder in the Beamer.

    23rd floor: "Have a nice day".

    But I'll be back later.
  2. May the force be with you.

    A 528i. I fixed it. It works fine. An interesting collection of wire springs and plastic. It's not yankin' a tranny and puttin' it back in, but it saves a few $$$ by not having the dealer do it.

    Oh Yeah, I am back now. The sun is down, so I stalk the threads of TalkBass.com/ once again. MWAHAHAHAHA!:eek:

    I love driving that car! I don't care if it's just to get a gallon of milk.

    I didn't think Canada had a "large bump" problem. Do they? (hijacked)

    I read that beamer is the motorcycle and bimmer is the car. Don't ask me to explain it!

    PAron - I know how you feel! I have a modestly upgraded 325is and I jump at the chance to drive it whenever I can.

    SMASH - Off roading eh? I'm guesssing you do this with stock suspension?

    MikeN. -Best thing in the worls in a well balanced car!

    The cup holders in my Lotus are useless. Go figger.

  11. The cup holder in my Subaru makes it hard to change CDs if I want to pull one of the 6 out...

    That's right, Asian cars...smaller and more efficient... :p

    I have three cup holders in my Audi Avant.
    I also have a Smith BT-4, Acacia Custom 6, a Hartke Kickback 12, and couple of baby seats.

    Mike, you need to turn this into a tune that requires authentic tube distortion.

    Already been done.:smug:

    Suddenly ahead of me
    Across the mountainside
    A gleaming alloy air-car
    Shoots towards me, two lanes wide.
    I spin around with shrieking tires
    To run the deadly race
    Go screaming through the valley
    As another joins the chase.

    Quite alot actually. But perhaps you've yet to experience Michigan roads? Ontario's roads are much nicer overall.IMO

    Beamer me up, Pimpride!

    Actually, you were right the other day. The stereo in the Volvo, in this case S-70 T5
    stickshift 5 speed is pretty awesome.

    My lovely lady busted on of the two usable cup holders some time ago. But now they don't make a T5 or T6 stick anymore, so I guess I'll have to keep it.

    ' Pleased to meeeeeet you ....... '

    My friend had a 950i 12 cylinder with the Bose stereo, that was pretty awesome, too bad he couldn't keep the stereo when the lease ran out ...
