    Damn, sorry to hear man.

    Seems like you can't escape the bad luck with the cars recently.

    what happened to the motor?

    TeX, I'm not sure if it has ever been replaced. The PO may have put something in there that's aftermarket. I'll find out when I open it.

    Good thing I was looking at the car right when it happened and put it out immediately, holy shit, I could have lost the car.

    Meh, agreed value is the way to go. It's also inexpensive.

    Nowhere credible, just random people commenting on social media.

    Data is updated once per day after 8 p.m. Eastern to allow the system to pull county-level data. For the most up-to-date confirmed cases and deaths, please see the COVID-19 Global Map. New York City borough deaths data does not include Probable COVID-19 deaths, as this data is not reported.

    ^ my lungs shut down like pneumonia, they sent me for xrays because they thought they were sure. My O2 was down to 82% on admission, and that was after I coughed up a bunch of crap getting out of bed to get to emerg.

    Anyway, positive news: finally found a s2.79 diff without the housing, so there's the carrier for my diff. Also gives me a 2.79 gearset should I ever need it. Probably will throw the R&P in a bag and drench them in LPS3. Still need bearings and seals, and unfortunately there's not going to be a school order I can tack my bearings onto so I'll be buying them separately I guess

    ^i got a flu like that 2 years ago
    was hacking out my lungs for 3 days and couldn't move.

    I'm fine, but that fat toad who infected me STILL clears his lungs all the time. Definitely permanent damage.
    stay fit.

    also check this other weird ass thing covid can do.

    Went to the Texas beach this past week, Mon-Thursday. Had fun. There you can drive on the beach(Crystal Beach). We also went to Galveston and ate at a restaurant. Been 2 months since we got to do that.

    Also, last Sat, not today, I did a get together where we went through the backroads around here, had 3 e30s, an e90, older 7 series(733i?). Was a fun couple of hours.

    Not much of an e30 scene even though there are a bunch around here.
