    Anyone who needs help installing a Vishnu Procede v3 let me know... installed one tonight for somebody. Relatively easy. Just don't drop any screws like I did underneath the ECU tray... Added a good 30 more minutes to the job yanking the frikkin thing out.

    What's up my fellow bimmer crew. Well, as many of ya know, I am deployed in Iraq right now. Before I left I purchased a 740 and my co-worker said I could leave it at his house on post and his wife would start it for me every 2 weeks or so. I was told by her husband yesterday that the battery is dead and that the key only works for the trunk. Good thing BMW puts the battery there. Ya'll know me, always down to wrench and help out a fellow BF member. So if anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it. Also, as the way things look, it looks like I am re-enlistin to stay on the island. Miss it like crazy right now and all the mebers there. The cruises, the meetins, the meet ups for DIY.

    Big thanks to my boy Jarod for takin care of my other baby. No worries bro, new shocks and brakes funding comin soon. Long story there brotha. Lil bro graduated from college and grabbed a degree but job market in Austin was suckin for a couple months. No more scholarship moeny. So he came to big bro instead of the parents. But through the kindness of my help, looks like I inherited a 97 325i from him. WOOOOT! Chock another bimmer up to my fam.
    Reunited and it feels so good! Muahahaha!

    Hopefully someone closer can attend to it. I'm in Hawaii Kai and have no military stickers on my cars. If not, I can make my way out there.

    I'll be moving to Oahu mid October with my wife. She's in the air force and will be stationed @ Hikam (sp?). I'm a computer tech and will be searching for a job when i get there. Been repairing computers, networks, and small business servers for about 10 years now.

    I'm a new owner of a Black 1996 Z3 and been loving driving this car. It's gonna need some work when i get to the island (replacing rear and front shocks), Brakes probably need to be changed soon and other stuff like that.

    any advice help is appreciated and i'll be happy to work on any sick computers and networks.

    yes, have some
    clemson, the crowd here is knowledgable and helpful. there is a great auto skills center a hop/skip/jump from hickham for bigger jobs like suspension and whatnot. get the parts before hand and have them shipped with your household goods to save some cash. id be more than willing to help you out if you feel you need it.

    Not sure where you are coming from Clemson but it took just under 30days for my car to get here from Baltimore. So ship your Z now that way it will be here in time for the cruise. Otherwise just show up in your rental car or whatever you happen to be driving at the time. Its not so much what you are driving with us at the cruises but the friends that are around you..
