    I've heard nothing but good things about their warranty, but their QC leaves a lot to be desired. You lucked out!

      Yea...they seem rather hit or miss. For the price though, the OEM S54 Z3 rad is verrrrrrrry hard to beat.

        Bimmerhaus had it to me within the day! :up:

        In the next several months ya'll will be seeing progress on my E30 finally. Found a job at Discount Tire over here on 92nd and Wads. I'm starting to make my money finally! Next will most likely be shocks and springs or shocks and save up for wheels and springs for a same-time-buy.

            Well I think they should add EVERYTHING south of Douglas county as well.

            Maybe they should just circle the Denver metro area and rename it East California.

              Amen. This massive immigration of Californians is getting tiring. If you're sick of California, don't move here without changing the way you vote, because you're just bringing your California problems with you.

                  The "Californians moving to Colorado and screwing it up" conversation has always been perplexing. It's been a perpetual bandwagon that people here have jumped on for a source of blame or used as a scapegoat. There are 4 or 5 (depending on date of data) other states that CA'ians are moving to at a higher rate than CO, so don't think we're the predominate recipient. People all over this country are stupid, and it's no different anywhere you go! Imagine living in the top two states receiving CA'ians.
                  Following that idea, you can be "born and raised" here in CO and still be stupid. In fact, many think this statement is analogous to being inbred and ignorant. It's an attempt at condescension clarifying that you were born here in CO; heckuva attitude to have during your entire life when making this comparison. Does the nature of your soul or being change when you migrate or stay put?
                  This kind of focus is different than the political standpoint but, naturally, it exists as an equal argument... why wouldn't it when you argue politics!!
                  That's a heck of an argument to address all in one post, but it doesn't give an alternative to why Colorado has become incredibly stupid over the last decade or so. Colorado is a great state, but it's quickly morphing into a California-stupid state. If the massive influx of Californians is not the cause of this, what is the cause?

                  Has something new in the water drained the IQ of the people in Colorado?

                  I was born and raised in CO, however I don't find that relevant. I know plenty of people who aren't California-stupid that live in Colorado and moved here from many states, some of them from California even (norcal folks typically).

                  I also don't think it's quite relevant to note what states have the highest percentage of California immigrants. Not relevant to our problem. Other states will have different population counts that will be diluted differently, and typically have different political concerns than we do in Colorado.

                  What I see being more relevant though is the percentage of immigrants who have come to Colorado from California over the last decade or two vs immigrants from other states. And at that point, you might as well look at emigration statistics too.

                  I think we can all agree that people around this country are stupid. I've been reading a few books in my (very limited) off-time about the slow demise of England that we saw last century and there are so many parallels that can be drawn to this country and its populace. Most people compare the failure of the US to Rome and get flamed for not being "with the times," but you can't deny the similarities between the deposition of the British Empire in the 20th century and the looming deposition of the American Hegemony.

                  Honestly, I'd like to see America be #3 or #4 on the list instead of #1. That way, we'd still be a force to be reckoned with, but we wouldn't have the massive expense of being the global police and could simply focus our energy on growing food and building cool shit.

                    After working in the defense sector, specifically aerospace related stuff, for the better part of the summer, we still build some damn cool shit. But, you're right, that shit could be immensely cooler.

                          Driving from Topeka KS to Boulder today. What's the best route to take?
                          Stay on I-70 the whole way or divert and take HWY 34 to I-76?

                                I being in the petro industry know for a fact this is not the case but will not get into an argument here, but will say it is up to the people to educate themselves not just point fingers.
