Unfortunately I won't make it this time, but next time for sure. That would be my first car meet - feels like the 40-year-old virgin.

Thanks Rolf. Appreciate it, especially coming from such an honorable member. Safe always, especially with little one in the back seat.

Yes, sunroof "for the wife win" (FTWW?) .

Maybe we are few, but in your case, not far between - I am in Stamford too.

There is a LI meet this weekend that I won't be able to make it, but we should think of a south CT meet. I see this is starting to take shape.

Hey, count me in. Now that the spring weather must be closer (we just can't have winter forever), we should definitely get this meet going.

Do you have any interior shots you'd be willing to share? My SG E92 just went into "production finished" status so I'm living vicariously through you

You ask you you shall receive.
Note my build is extended black leather. I took some close up pics to show the stitching in certain areas.
Never mind my unattractive garage.

So this is one of the reasons I value this forum. Initially I thought I was just being paranoid, but e92m3allday raised the issue and mlhj83 kinda confirmed.

I took a closer look at the car and concluded it definitely warranted an appointment with the dealership. I set it for Wednesday and will update here what the end result is. They said it's safe to drive like this - well, no s**t, I put 1,200+ miles already.

So, thanks guys!

Here are the new angles I observed:

That's what we're here for!

I am more than positive they are still on the car. It is safe to drive on so no worries though. Once they are removed, you will definitely say to yourself "damn, what a difference" and then question why you doubted yourself the first time you realized it, lol. Because it is like a 2-3 inch difference in ride height, which is huge. Anyways, it will just make you love your car that much more once they remove them! It's going to feel like you got a drop!
