I use these guys for my 1-series and Mini. Little more expensive, but worth it.

I agree with you on that. But it seems that everyone else wanted to do the BMWCCA meeting. I would have much rather picked a separate location with another time but its the majority's opinion so I'm not fighting it.

Checked out your website. VERY nice, I am a graphic designer myself working mostly on the 3D/signage end. Where did you go to school?

They did the suspension on my 128: Eibach springs with Koni FSD shocks. About a 3/4" drop retains mostly OEM ride characteristics. Not for track work or autocross.

Thanks man, its good to know someone out there likes my work. I went to the University of Houston's Graphics Communication program. You guys aren't too shabby yourselves.

I think I met you last year at the BMWCCA meet in Katy. You're in Sugarland right? I had the monaco blue 135.

No we have not met. I live in the Heights, near downtown. I'll show up at a future meeting, hope to meet you then.

Oh, I guess I've mistaken you for another member.

I actually work in the Montrose & Westheimer area. That wasn't you last week stopped on Waugh near Westheimer around rush hour in a fender bender was it? I'm pretty sure it was a white 128. Kinda felt sorry for that 1er.

Nope, not a scratch on my 09. Hope it stays that way.

Wish i could have made it for sure. We should organize another one sometime with a time and location that is good for everything. Could be weeknight if that is better. What do you guys think?

Sorry to hear about your car man. That really sucks. Hope all goes well with the repairs.

For what it's worth, if we ever do get something planned in the future, a week night would make it at least a possibility for me to join in the fun.
