Oh yeah. They'll nail him. Plus, he'll never know it was you that tagged him.

Suggest that you ask on DFW Auto Club. I'm pretty sure that some of those guys have (or have had) Land Rovers.

Just an fyi, my buddy has a RR and he goes to the range rover dallas and hates them. He won't get rentals and such because he did not buy his rr from them. Service is sub-par also, they keep jacking him around.

Was thinking about going until I got two "presents" in my rear tire at the Home Depot parking lot this morning. Ofcourse, both nails were in the SAME tire. Gonna have to replace it since I'm not comfortable with two patches in one tire. I'm hoping those nails are short and no rim damage.
Got my stock wheels back on so atleast I can use the car.

Ow, that's annoying. Strange that they are both right in the center of the tire. I just had to replace an almost new tire on our Accord because it got a nail in the shoulder. Not the same level of pain as you have though. Phil has the name and phone number of the local Vredestein distributor. Send him a PM here or on DFW AutoClub (he's on there more I think).

Thanks guys. Smart minds, think alike. I fired off an email an hour after it happened to Phillip's contact...Dan. (I had his info from an old email I had from Phillip).
Its not that big of a deal, but of all the people out there, you guys definitely know how you feel without the RAC's (they're like family...man, Lol).

Random question, but this thread is slow anyways:

I have a space gray E90 (w/ZCP). I've been thinking about getting a set of the Volk TE37SLs (probably in 18s) which only come in pressed graphite. Do you think the colors would work? Also, I'm not planning to do any other suspension mods, so I wonder if I will end up with the 4x4 effect with these wheels. The only suspension mods I would consider is if Dinan comes out with a ZCP kit that looks like it makes some sense. Thoughts?

It looks like the wheels are about the same color as your car (or a bit darker). It should look ok. You could always get them powder coated locally (black would likely look great) if you didn't like them. I'm guessing the wheels have less offset than the ZCP wheels (which will push them out in the wheel well). You can also think about 255/40 and 275/40 sizes rather than the OEM 245/40 & 265/40's. Here's photos of Radiation Joe's new car when he first put the 18" RAC's on it (http://www.m3post.com/forums/showpos...postcount=4055). I'm pretty sure it has the standard (non-ZCP) suspension in the photos although he's added a Dinan suspension now (but I couldn't find any current photos). As another reference, my car has standard suspension, 255/35x19 & 275/35x19, 9"+22 & 10"+22. There are pictures of it here: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=410207
