    Thumbs up Official Indiana Thread

    Okay, so I figure it needed to be done. We have a couple various threads on different topics as far as photo shoots and gtgs. Why not have a thread where all us Indiana guys can talk about meets, cars, and whatever the hell else we want to.

    I'll start it off with two spotted BMWs on the north side of Indianapolis. The first was a black and pink (yes I said pink) X5. It had wheels and might of had some sort of bodykit on it. He was going South on I-69 just south of 96th St. It was an Asian guy driving it. Anyone know him??? The second happened this morning. It appeared to be a post 2000 540 sport with the M bumper. He had what appeared to be a splitter on it as well as a Euro plate reading something with 540i at the end. Know him???

    Also, March 8 there is a show in Louisville if anybody is interested. We will be taking down a caravan.

    I have seen a few nice 5-series on 96th street. I saw a guy driving an E39 540 Silver, with the sport package the other day. This car had paper plates on it still.

    My neighbor has a debadged Silver 530 with what looks like the Sport Package also.

    I'd like to get more involved. I wanted to do the meet last weekend, but couldn't make it. My BMW's kinda ghetto'd though, i need to get the exhaust system fixed, and some oil leaks fixed, and some minor rust fixed, shocks.... I've got a list...

    Once it starts to get nice out some of the meets will involve some autox. We have a couple of local guys who are really into it. Ian, the owner of EP was also talking about possibly doing some track days with him instructing. (www.ianbaasracing.com) Nothing has been set in stone as of now but ideas are being discussed.

    I bought some tc kline camber plates and would like to throw new spherical bearings in before installing - David can you guys press bearings? If not do you have a machine shop recommendation around here? (Northside-ish) Thanks.
