Anyone near Charlottesville?

Hey Guys,

Just introducing myself! Name is Mohammad and I'll be moving from NJ to Charlottesville to study at UVA Law school. Just had a few questions for you guys!

Any good shops in the area where you go to get oil changes, maintenance, etc etc? I've got a pretty modified 135i and I've only trusted the one shop I've been going to for a while now!

Do you guys organize a lot of meets?

Are the speed limits on Blue Ridge really enforced?

How's life overall in Charlottesville? I'm coming from a small Surburban town in NJ. I'm used to being so close to the city and having everywhere I need to go within 15 minutes of my home.

PS Here's a picture of my car.

Current: Cayman GT4 & E82 135 N55 DCT

Gone but not forgotten: E83 X3 6MT, 2016 SO M3, 2012 335iS, 2010 135i and 2006 e90 325xi

Hey, I'm also in the Cville area. How you liking it so far? It's ok, too small for my taste and I hate driving the hour to Richmond to do any major shopping. Don't get me wrong, I love driving the car- VA drivers are horrible though.

Have you found any shops yet for maintenance? I have catless downpipes and JB4 so I'm looking for some mod-friendly shops too. I do my own oil change so that ones not a problem.

I haven't seen too many 1-series in Cville, once in a while I'll see a 128i driving down 29 but they're definitely not common. I did see a sweet black 135i on 29 a little past Lowes one day that could have been yours though.

Be very careful on the parkway as they do enforce the speed limits up there...
