Ahh, gotcha. I ran 17s in the winter on my STi as well so I can't really speak on it... My biggest concern is the cost of the tires.

Came across this on Xceedspeed.com - not sure if any of you are interested, but I'm considering going:

http://www.xceedspeed.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=110307

Sounds like there's going to be a fairly decent turn-out and a good opportunity to meet some other local owners... :smile:

READ: There are a lot (and I mean A LOT) of asshats on that forum; however there is a core group of guys that are really cool and a few that are very, VERY knowledgeable. Figure out which ones they are and you'll enjoy reading/posting there.

That's my disclaimer. :smile:

My SGM 135i Coupe is home in MI!

Hey fellow SE Michiganders, my 1 is now at home in MI.

I picked her up in South Carolina at the BMW Performance Center last Tuesday.

Here are a few pics of her on Labor Day with tint and a two decals added :roundel:

Now go out and enjoy her - it's a great day for it!

I got my first driving award this weekend going through Ohio. Anyone know a good traffic attorney near Sidney OH? And what does 27mph over the limit get you in MI? From what I've read and heard MI doesn't fully cooperate with the reporting between states but it partially does..

  1. What was the speed limit?
  2. What the hell were you doing driving that fast without a radar detector in an unfamiliar area?
  3. OHIO!? Everybody knows you don't drive in excess in Ohio!
I'll ask some of my lawyer connections, but can't promise I'll be able to help much outside of MI.

Either way, good luck, man... I can't believe they wrote you up for 27 over!

Limit was 65mph
He clocked me from northbound moving while I was southbound (shady)
Yea, I hate Ohio.. Too flat and full of corn. That's why I was speeding, if I didn't I would fall asleep!

Any recommendations of lawyers/tactics are appreciated..

FYI ~ a friend of mine is trying to get the Ferrari Owners' Club track day at Waterford filled up. They need 20 cars or the event will be cancelled. It is not limited to JUST F cars! It's on the 24th, which is a Wednesday and costs $250. Unfortunately I can't make it; however it is worth the $$ as lunch is provided and you WILL get more track time than most events.

Hope to hear a few of you made it out! :thumbup:
