    Yup! IDefinitely enjoyed Bridget Foy's a few times. South Street was a great area to live in; there were cool shops (gotta have my Rita's wooder ice), good restaurants, rent was relatively cheap, and a young population like me. I do miss it from time to time. I have some older family out on the Main Line that I see every so often. I lived up in Manayunk as well, and my parents lived in East Falls for a while my mom was at school years ago.

    Cool! glad to see someone else that likes the area.... Terraphantm is going to School there too. I gave him a few tips on places to go.
    You know VAC Motorsports is right off of Snyder Ave. We got a tour of their facility when Kristen had her LSD put in the 135 by them... good bunch of people there.

    Definitely. It's very different from the PacNW, but in a mostly good way and I'm glad I lived there for a while. I spoke to Terra via PM last year when he mentioned he was going to school there. Hopefully he's found time to explore the city. I'm interested in what you suggested to him, I always have my own list but I discovered that some of those places have disappeared since I left.

    I never went to VAC, actually, but they seemed like a good shop. I was planning to go to them when I was first thinking of buying my old '03 330Ci, but the sellers were way up in NW so I had the PPI done at Bavarian Specialties up by KoP. I ended up doing maintenance through them since they were close to me in Manayunk.

    I told him about the waterfront, South Street and the White Dog Café in University City. There are so many Good restaurants down there that I couldn't name them all. Jones was one of our favorite restaurants too. the whole menu is comfort food

    I know where that shop is in KoP. I worked for a computer manufacturer right down the street from there in the late 90's.

    ~24 days until I'm home and can be reunited with my car. Hopefully mice or other small vermin haven't taken up residence and found the ever tantalizing wiring/rubber of my car as delicious.

    Picked up a set of LEDs for my front turn signals from Nate, so now the maintenance to be done currently stands with the following:
    • Oil change (nowhere near my normal 5k mile interval, but it's around the 1 year interval). Still need to purchase oil and filter kit. Need to decide if I want to stick with Mobil1 0W-40 or go with something else.
    • Brake fluid flush (1 year interval). Still have an unopened bottle of Pentosin DOT4 LV I'll use.
    • Paint brake calipers. I am currently foregoing my plans for yellow. Now I need to decide between either a lighter blue like today's generation ///M calipers or black. Leaning black. Or maybe I'll get roped into some 135i calipers...
    • Coolant flush (2 year interval). Need to purchase coolant/crush washers for the engine block.
    • Put back on my APEX ARC8 wheels (the car is currently sitting on my Style 135s in storage).
    • Install yellow fog lights.
    • Install UUC TSE3 exhaust. Still need to purchase exhaust gaskets.
    • Install E46 M3 front strut brace.
    • Install E46 M3 motor and transmission mounts.
    • Install LED bulbs in the front turn signals (Philips X-Treme Ultinon T20 Amber LED)
    • Perform a full exterior detail (ugh).
    • Perform an interior detail with Leatherique treatment. Need to purchase the Leatherique.
    • Swap carpets from all weather to carpet for the summer.
    • Inspect power steering fluid leak
    • Replace old fuel filter soft hoses. Need to purchase Bav Auto kit.

    List of other odds and ends I need to do:
    • Finish my coupe interior swap DIY guide
    • Actively try and sell my factory coupe interior.
    • Buy an external microphone and record the sounds of the factory intake, BMW Performance intake, and GruppeM intake. Perform with the mic by the intake, inside the cabin, and by the exhaust. Repeat with UUC TSE3 installed. Make a comparison video.
    • Just drive the damn thing


    Can't say I haven't spent some of my time waiting by listening to the TSE3 videos...

    I'll (hopefully) have sent out my med school apps by the time I leave and then it's job hunting back home, and possibly taking the MCAT again (ugh). I have a few leads on jobs so I'm not too worried. Basically plan to relax a bit this summer and enjoy myself before I pick up again with work and working on secondaries from medical schools.

    It's provocative.

    No it's no-

    It gets the people going!



    On the real though, I can't wait to have this thing installed and put up more videos.

    Edit: Also, can't say I'm not a teensy tiny bit envious of your 135i calipers.
