Absolutely. I drive my car daily, so all I have to do is wash it up. We could meet in Buffalo area (Northtowns) Rochester area (don't know) or somewhere inbetween?

She goes great in the snow, today was no exception... did a little front bumper snow plowing on my street and several others that hadn't been plowed yet. I am running 18x8 rims with Blizzak Ice and Snow 245/45R18's all around. It lacks in the traction dept. when getting on it, the obvious reason being the rear tires are "narrow".

Yes we should. This weekend is out as I plan to rebuild the rear diff on my M5... I am free most weekends. Let narrow down a day of the week and time of day thats good for everyone and then pick the date. Friday nights, anytime Saturday is good for me, as well as Sunday mornings....

Hmm that sounds like a fun project, rebuilding a diff. Whats wrong with yours now?

And yea we need to plan ahead, I work everyday of the week so I would need time to get a day off. Weekends are the best though.

I agree I am interested in a get together also. This weekend is also out for me as I am getting my bc coilovers fitted with beast power brackets and 15 mm spacers up front. I also work during the week but weekends and friday nights are also good with me. Lets start the planning. Vitality you need to get Paul to come out with his M5 too.

The pinion seal is leaking and I get a bit of bearing noise, which I'm pretty sure is coming from the rear diff and not the trans. A badly leaking pinion seal is usually a good indication that the pinion bearing is bad.

OK, so lets narrow down the meet even more: prefer late afternoon/evening meet, or morning with coffee meet? Based on that, we can meet at a bar/restaurant with lots of open parking, or a coffee shop with the same? Ideas?

The whining noise in the lower rpm range? I get the same thing, its kind of annoying me now actually. Damn I might have to ask you for help to fix that lol..

Bmw2bad0904, I can probably get Paul in on this also when the meet does come around

I found another member from Rochester, NY to. He is getting the powerchip tune after he bolts on some parts and il be checking that out soon.. Maybe he wants to meet up to

Id like to find a place that has a open space, prolly some resturant. Idk.. But I want to be able to park all the beasts and have them be the center of attention. W00t. LOL Sry.. got carried away.
