Ah, fair enough. The M needs a bath and a wax badly.

Just throwing up a pic because I'm bummed about having to put on the winter wheel/tire setup. All the leaves are off the trees now though so I guess I have delayed about as long as possible. Looking forward to spring already.

Nice, I'm sure you'll love it! These cars sound so good with just an axle-back.

My car is completely covered in salt. The only reason I am not driving it is because of the potholes. Just ordered some Apex wheels and soon some new rubber. Next up, suspension work and cosmetics!

Yeah, I drove the M on Friday (I have blizzaks on it). I was thinking 1-2" wouldn't be bad. 5" at rush hour was terrible. The M did plenty fine, got stuck behind a few pick-up trucks that were just spinning their wheels. And when I got home, I plowed the driveway with the M.

Now today, this could be another fun commute!

This weather simply sucks. I've never put winter wheels on in five yrs of ownership- but there were always winter days when the weather warmed and the streets dried enough to at least get the M out. Not this year. Its killing me because I upgraded to GTS DCT software a few weeks back and haven't had a chance to try it out.

I haven't really started looking. Maybe start with KW V3 with some camber plates.

First wax application on the car, Zymol Carbon
Great day for it in a cool garage.

Will be doing this soon enough. Awaiting the arrival of my Griots random orbital (3" and 6"). Looking forward to having a shiny car again!

I have both of those from Griots. Work great, and lifetime warranty too.

I have seen that car around.

My Griot's supplies arrived as did my new wheels (18x10 square Apex EC7). Just ordered some 275/35-18 square R-S3s for the new wheels as well. Will post a picture once I install the rubber.
