    Sounds awesome. I moved to Chicago about 5 months ago now and bought my first BMW as well. Maybe I'm mistaken but the BMW community seems to blow around these parts. Maybe I just haven't been exposed to it yet really, but the IL based R3V crowd is made up of about 2 people total.

    I'll plan on attending the shop opening...whenever it is.

    When's the meet going to be? From California and I'm going to be spending a few days out there next week/weekend, would love to take a look at the shop and see some BMW's while I'm out there.

    Yea, I guess I had high hopes, coming from the New England VW community. They're huge.

    I was out for a few hours in that great weather. I was kinda apprehensive about the convertible top working after not moving for so many months. Tomorrow is going to be even nicer!

    Got a headlight burned out for an E46M3. Does anyone know where I could buy them locally? no auto zone stores carry them. I'd hate to pay dealer price on this. thanks in advance.

    I think we are going to have the big open house the first week in april. We may be having a smaller ChitownM meet in the next couple of weeks. As some of you know I recently moved here from the mid atlantic area, and the meets there were huge. There was a really large bmw following, and I would really like to see that happen here. If I can be a part of that it would definately put a smile on my face. If anyone needs work done I would be happy to help you guys out. The number at the shop is 847-240-0888 my name is John. We are located on East Remington Rd. in Schaumburg. Oh and we get fantastic parts for less than the dealer. So if you guys need anything, just give me a holler.

    BTW Monty Ill see you whenever your ready. Can't wait to see your beautiful car at the shop.
    Nate I hope the car is running better and actually stoping now.
