They were not sure if I had one of the bad belts or not. Well this just proved I had a bad belt. I told them to send me 3 sets of the good belts because I know I could not find these belts at a Auto part store or BMW Stealer Ship. I try my best to be a little pro-active and have the right tools and stuff in my car for long road trips I even take a OEM factory wheel with me for a spare along with a jack . I can't help it I am a mechanic and I don't like to break down
Sorry to hear about the broken belt, but glad you made it back okay. I recently gave up on the Dinan UDP and ordered the AA. I made sure to order an extra belt for this very reason. I'll be sure to keep it in the car.

Definitely. I'm loving the bumper. More aggressive than stock, but OEM appearance, and of course, no reflectors.

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.

Jonathan, you remember me? I sold you your blacklines earlier this year.

Looks like you didn't make it to this meet after all and obviously I didn't either. Maybe I'll catch up with you at a future meet...
