Anywho, I'll look for y'all when I'm putting around Beaverton and Hillsboro area. I great drive when it's early (and dry) is around Hillsboro airport and Jackson Road
Currently only driving that way once a week to drop off my dog to daycare (Dog's Hideaway, awesome place if anyone is looking). When I get back into the office though, I'll be around there all the time. Guessing that will be ~June.

In case anyone's looking for a great driving road in the area, Bald Peak is excellent. Fairly minimal traffic last Saturday morning, but sometimes you get unlucky and end up behind someone doing 30. Great views and a nice little park at the top, too.

I am up at Forest Heights. Bethany QFC, springville Rd PCC rock creek tennis courts are all places I often there, but most of time driving my space grey X5 F15. You possibly at Intel area Joans Farm?
Hello - nope not at Intel, been working from home since March of last year. I do miss my drive, where normally work in Tualatin. My drive there is over Cooper Mtn. and along Roy Rogers drive - it used to be wide open (5 years ago) but now is busy, busy with all new homes and other businesses.

Next long dry series of days I'm for sure gonna get my M3 some much needed 'spirited' driving in.

Glad to find out there's actually more M3's around locally - I rarely see others, but nice to know we are around

Nice to see another E9X in the area. I see lots of F-series M's, but I think I'm the only E9X I've seen.

I remember about $1600 was the labor charge. I sourced my own parts and provided it to them. I went with BE bearings and BE ARP bolts. I didn't do engine mounts at the time. Source my own oil parts for the post work, although they did charge me for some oil to cycle through the engine before doing a final oil change.

99% sure that was me, I tend to park in BFE in that lot. Thanks very much! The aFe X-pipe and Megan setup is everything I hoped it would have been sound-wise.

Rod bearings normally labor is at below:
Replacing rods bearings and associated hardware/gaskets/oil/filter, $1620

It definately worth it and if you have that 10 hours free time and stay there!

Updated the photo from my laptop just now. Android phone apps is so bad quality when upload photos.

I go with yellow slotted ST60 front /ST40 rear.
I bought them brand new from previous car owner, he have not got them installed and sold the car to me. Actually I much prefer drilled rotors but this set price is so good and I can't pass.
