Isn't that the truth. The flag would be a recent frat bro grad in a button down drinking light beer in his 4 runner.

Does it annoy the shit out of you that every young professional drives a 328i. It's like they don't even give a shit about anything but owning the bmw badge.

Yes. So many nice cars... not many car enthusiasts. It's a shame how that works out. Don't hate the car, hate the driver

Or waited 24 hours to assemble and buffed ...
Thanks man will look into this!

went for a carwash this morning.

quick question, any of you guys noticed that when you roll up the window, trapped dirt from the sides goes with it leaving nasty lines of dirt? (hopefully no scratches)

Yes, very annoying. Usually not dirt though, more often just water streaks.

I basically had a dirty window and went to the carwash. lol! well some cat steps on my roof as well.

there's supposed to be some sort of rubber to block dusts, water,etc. from getting thru that window canal.

Installed blind-spot mirrors. I'm not sure I like the blue-tint. It looks crystal clear in sun light, and it certainly lessens the glare of vehicles behind you at night, but for regular and low light it just has the sunglasses effect that I'm not a fan of on mirrors.

Oh, for the love of God don't follow ECS Tunings video on how to remove the old mirrors. My mirrors were damn near welded in place making them largely impossible to remove without cracking the ever loving p*ss out of them. The video makes it look like you can just pull from the extended end. Ya, right.
