I've decided to go with a more "track-ready" appearance with my e90. so 17's + some RS3's are in my future.

Yup! and it will be nice to have a double duty dd. I am finding I have less and less time to pick up my track toys, prep em, load em and drive to autox or track. So if I can have the 335i be half decent, I can just drive it to autox since El Toro is about 15 min away from my place. Satisfy the itch to go fast without having to drive an hour each way to pick up the other cars.

That shouldn't be too difficult or wallet breaking to make your E90 more or less autox worthy…Rubber, coils, control arms, strut bar, track pads, dial in some camber and you should be good to go. Ok upon reflection, maybe that isn't so cheap. But it would drive pretty bitchin'.

Anyone do any longer range shooting? Not really long range, but middle of the pack?

I'm looking to get into that, unfortunately the longest range nearby is 200 meters...though they are expanding and I've had my fingers crossed that they make a longer range.

If so, any scope recommendations? Right now I'm leaning towards the Vortex Viper 6.5-20x 50. Seems like people like it and heard good things about their customer service.

33 deg. out when I started the car this morning. I hadn’t moved it since Sunday, and it was fairly warm and humid yesterday/overnight before it got cold and dry this morning. AKA planets aligned for a smokey/condensation-y coldstart. My car was puffing crap out like a diesel stack truck for the first 90 seconds or so lol.

Yeah, I know - what is going on - we had such a nice "winter" last year, was hoping for more of the same this year, but its dragging on here in Toronto. That groundhog needs to be shot. Fraudulent reporting and all.

Ah well, couple more weeks and it should be nice.

Winter is just running skewed this year. I had my summer tires on, comfortably, until december.

Hell we didnt even have a real snow in syracuse until January.

Spending the week trying to relax in San Francisco with the girlfriend. So far, I have been in nice places while working

Trying to take a vacation at the end of the quarter was probably not the best idea that I have ever had. Oh well, it's nicer here than in the midwest.

I hear you. For past couple weeks my back has been terrible. I have an appointment tomorrow with an RMT though for a massage so I'm looking forward to that.
