I didn't see any snow inside the loop but I did see a lot of ice. I've kept my car locked up since Thurs night!

Yeah, I haven't moved around since early yesterday. I haven't even been in the garage. I'll be out tomorrow afternoon when the ice is gone.......Phil

I've never seen this many cars 'lose control' on the streets ever. (I even lived in Ohio, Connecticut and Wisconsin). You got "normal" drivers with a small percentage of "psychos" that think that their truck/suv is designed for this shit and can go fast through it (not!) and those that think that safe is going "5" mph when everyone is managing 30....WTF, huh?.. Since hospitals don't get an "off day", I had to drive over a hundred miles in this crap the last 3 days, it was frustrating to say the least. Obviously, I used my beater. Can't wait to get the M off the tender and on the road again. (My pressure washer is going to get some serious work the next few weeks)

Looks like they took delivery at Westside Lexus.

Anyone see it yet? I'd prolly have a seizure and crash my car.
i saw a yellow LF-A here in dallas a few months ago. i was on my way home from work, and it passed me going the opposite direction, engine howling. i turned around and searched for it but just couldn't find it anymore. didn't realize they were still that rare! the engine sound was fantastic, probably the single thing i like most about the car. i only caught a glimpse, but the driver looked like an asian girl. anyone seen that car around? i haven't been able to make it to C&C's due to working all the damn time.

people are idiots here when the roads are bad. either they drive 5 mph or 45 mph in their big lifted truck. no one gives themselves ample room for braking on the ice and i get anxious every time i see someone approaching me from behind while braking. i actually saw two bentleys out on the road yesterday in highland park. it's gonna be a mess for trauma tonight, sigh...

my M has been in the garage safely since monday...have to say the X5 (OEM tires still) has been taking it like a champ. the only plus side of having to drive to the hospital every morning is that at 6am, there usually isn't much traffic yet in weather like this. friday morning with the fresh snow was a rally-style drifting paradise, albeit in the X5. kind of funny to oversteer through huge empty streets downtown in a big fat SUV!

I don't envy you guys. Not having to go out when it's like it has been is just one of the many benefits of being retired. My wife and I went to our local barbecue place(in the Accord) this evening for dinner. It was the first time we'd been out since Monday.

I've been going to C&C Dallas pretty regularly. I don't think anyone has showed up with an LF-A yet.

Take care and stay safe.

My experience with Motorwerks has been so-so. I tried them out (more out of convenience since they're in the Galleria) and ended up having their work fixed by Driver Source, who I would recommend.

I'm not a huge clear bra fan but if I were going to install one, it would be when the car was BRAND NEW. Once the car's been driven even a little bit (particularly in a place like Houston with all the random road debris), the window of opportunity has been missed IMO.

Talk to Sonny Shyrock at X-Pert Tint (11231 Southwest Freeway, Houston, TX; W: 281-575-0371. Sonny's shop does all the new BMWs, Audi, Mini's and Cadillacs. He had a nice 335is E93 when I was there getting my Acura done this weekend.

He clear bra my M3 two years ago for $625+tax. I got coverage on the bumper, hood, fenders, side-mirrors, door edges, and he threw in a small area on the rear bumper (prevents scratches when people are loading stuff like suitcases).

Sonny and his assistant did a good job on my TL, too. I had to pay a little bit more than I did on the M3 but negotiated the price I wanted to pay.

Tell him Frank (who had the M3 and TL) referred you.

I got my tint done at Xpert Tint (F1 Pinnacle) and they tried to sell me the clear bra package too. I would have gotten the clear bra done there too, but I had it done elsewhere already (with Steve @ Driver's Source).

So there is a Trans Am 02 in my apt complex and he thinks that it is God's gift to to Earth. He guns it out of the parking lot numerous times at 7AM.

Need halp. What should I do for him to shut is piece of metal up.
