I agree with you!! personally I would key your car even if it was a Ferrari.... if you were taking up two parking spots.....parking by an island or handicapped spot makes sense though but those spots are never empty...

Never an issue for me or the many other people I see doing it in the midwest all the time. Our parking lots must not be nearly as busy as where you guys are in the NY area.

For those of you who plan to go bigger, I was told by my dealer it Does Not cover 20's.

My dealer said the plan covers any tires as long as they are within the factory recomended size range. I was surprised my winter tires will be covered.

People in the Northeast are more likely to do it than Midwesterners. I'm from NYC, but now reside in WI. I agree that taking up two spots is a magnet for haters. For the guy who said he would key a car taking up two spots, grow up. I think anyone that would do something to someone else's car when the owner is not around is a fcking coward.

Why does anyone think it is okay to key a car, ever? I hear this BS all the time.

Agreed, but don't be a douche and take up more than one parking spot either.

you must learn that M3 enthusiasts might be more, uh, enthusiastic (or middleschoolish) than other driver groups with which you may be familiar. Therefore you must immediately add SICK, SicK, SiCK, and SiCk to your lexicon.

Do you guys have any recommendations about what to do with the power steering fluid? I heard it overheats pretty easily at the track.

Take it out and put it in a cooler. That way it will stay nice and cool, even on a hot day.

A cooler for the power steering? Do you have a specific brand/product you're talking about? Or do you mean a cooler running, perhaps thicker power steering fluid?

The M3 already has power steering fluid cooler, transmission oil cooler, and engine oil cooler. Can't have any more than that, but maybe it needs a bigger one. I personally think the problem is the small reservoir, but could be wrong.
