I pop open the hood got a flash light from my trunk and looked around under the hood at the engine and my belt was broken "Dammit Jim" . I took out the broken parts of the drive belt. Since my other drive belt did not break the car was still able to drive. I was still good so I drove the car home . I have 3 sets of extra drive belts for my M3. just in case moments like this happen on a long trip. Well since I been deployed I forgot to put a set of belts back in the car . I will fix the belt when I get off work in the afternoon. The steering on the M3 is a real B#*$h .... with no powersteering. I am just glad me and the wife made it home safe

sorry to hear abt the belt James. Nice pics though looks like a decent turnout despite the rain. Wish i could have made it down there. Maybe we can meet up sometime this week if you want. Send me a txt and let me know.
