You need to tell us how the E46 M3 you had compared to the new car.

Older one was lighter but less power,new one more power but certainly fatter

Friggin oil better pick it up or they'll be golfing, dam, they lost.

Depressing hockey season this year, dam

Hey sparky don't talk about the soilers on here! You will turn the board into crap just like their play. I went to 10 games this year, guess how many they won? 0! I will put that money into mods instead of paying a bunch of underachievers salaries! I will not renew my package next year. Screw you oil! Wow / end rant.

I will talk to modern auto-body tomorrow, thanks boys.

I know...depressing topic. I will say one thing about the Flamers, at least they have a GM that knows how to be a GM. Some of his trades have been Sather-esque. Too bad Kevin Lowe was such a monkey. Ugh..I have to stop...I just unloaded a year's worth of expletives at that donkey's ass Tom Gilbert and my wife is chasing me around trying to stick a bar of soap in my mouth.

Hahaha! You to?! My fiance has gotten used to the profanity unleashed because of this hockey season. She just shakes her head. But seriously do you think Glibert could keep a puck in the offensive zone or make a pass? C'mon! Last I checked the flamers had bonified snipers and role players plus they could win more than three consecutive games... Good game by the goal posts by the way.

All Gilbert knows how to do is talk about shoe shopping on the his video blog on oilers.com.

What an intergalactic moron.

OK, I promise to stay on topic now...except after the game on game days!

Went by my parents' place last night which is my guage for snow melting...so at least we are getting close. But honestly, I am keeping the M of the roads until they are done with the street cleaning. On the news they mentioned that this year the city used 150,000 tons of sand/gravel on the roads, 35K more than last year. We should have a window of 2 weeks this spring/summer to enjoy our cars. Mind you, all the ruts on Whitemud, 23rd avenue interchange, and elsewhere may convince me to buy my own alignments machine...lol.

Sorry, no hockey talk. My bad. I think we can all agree the topic is off topic and all of our feelings are similar.

Youtube on similar topic, rofl

Ya I watched it with some of the Doc's I work with, I was pretty much crying laughing. You could put any subtitles on that movie and it would be golden.

Good place and high end but high end prices too so expect it.

Only Edm shop that is a certified BMW repair facility so they know BMW very very well

Hard to b*tch about $$, I own a V8 and drive like an idiot and I have an M3. All my own choices.

I love my M3
I absolutely know for sure that Doug's Place is 1 of 5 certified bodyshop in Canada that is certified by BMW Canada.

I got my orange reflectors filled by Doug's Place last year. I tried calling Modern and their customer service is terrible. Perhaps it was just that day.?? In addition, Doug's Place was way cheaper.

I really want to check out your guys mods.

Nice to hear from you again 1ne! Didn't know if you were still cruising with the M or went to the dark side (porsche)! haha. I will definitely give Doug's place a call on Monday, I know you did a lot of stuff with them. I will tell them you sent me

I only did the reflectors with them. I doubt they remember me. I still have the M.

Yeah Moderns service is still sorta rubbish so that hasn't changed.

Not sure if they have always been that way or if no one understands what customer service is, I never get the feeling that they don't care but no real sense or urgency. You'd think customer service is a simple thing.

What do I know, I have only been in customer service for 17 years

We'll see how things go along.

I may end up at Dougs in the future for any other mods.

Summers coming 1ne, better get that baby prepped, all of us DD idiots are going to be mod kings

PS Just ordered AA pulley set

Sparky, I went to 9939 - 77th Avenue location.

Anyone try a short shift yet?

Totally feeling the itch to get the M out but I can't even get out of my alley now.

Have a UUC short shift sitting in the house, waiting to be installed later this month.

We should all consider going down for the annual summer event that Tunerworks puts on...would be fun to shoot pics and video on the way down.

BTW, anybody interested in ordering a laser jammer from Laser Interceptor? Myself and two other friends are ordering a front and rear setup, along with the wireless connection kit from Speed Cheetah. As well, because I am worried about the potential damage that the 500W flash on red light cameras may cause my new license plate (), I am also picking up some PhotoBlocker spray. If anyone wants to join in and split shipping, let me know. Thinking of ordering within two weeks.

AMJ, are you running yours in the winter? I was originally thinking of a titanium exhaust, but was not sure how the metal would fare with our cold winter temperatures. Talked with Rob at Tunerworks, which made me go with something else.

I'll get the details together on the other stuff...are you interested in Laser Interceptor/Speed Cheetah and/or the Photoblocker? PM me back.

Ti if welded properly in a blanket gas should be impervious to winter. The shite won't corrode. Better that any 300 series SST for sure.

I have had 3 Ti bikes all bomb proof
