Re: How often do you change your fluids?

I've thought about it.

I have yet to see anyone do the cost to bleed/flush ratio.

@ $65 a bottle it's still cheaper to go through a 1L can of $15 stuff once a year and maybe 0.25 of a 1L can...

Re: Race seat install, what are you guys doing about the airbag light?

Yeah, true if you have that option. Not true if you have an E36. :)

Re: What helmet do you recommend/like?

Wine Country Motorsports at Sonoma Raceway has helmets and seats you can see and try in person.

Last time I was there and sat in some seats I bought a couple t-shirts for their time.

Re: What helmet do you recommend/like?

Re: What helmet do you recommend/like?

I have a Stilo ST4 GT Wide Carbon-Fiber. It's pretty fancy and doesn't make me a faster driver or anything, but I like the fact that it's lighter on my head.

It's been replaced by the ST5 now...

Re: 1998 E36 M3 Dakar HPDE Car - Picture Intensive

I forgot to mention that I got my A/C working. It turned out to be a fuse and a relay. I think the relay took a shit which then took out the fuse.
