Thanks, I tried again with your technique but no luck. I can't get them to move at all. Maybe I need to increase my work-out routine.[/QUOTE]

So my car was in for its first service today and I asked them to remove the headrests. It was done no problem, but it took two techs, one on each side of the headrest pulling together to remove each one. So I don't feel so bad that I failed. But what a great difference for visibility and looks so much better!

BTW they just received two of the new Z4's, one 4 and one 6 cylinder - they are beautiful, much better than the photos show! The 6 was a matt metallic grey, very nice paint.

I've seen the Z4 in person and honestly not a fan. I want to see the Supra in person.

I'm generally a fan of the newer BmWs too. The 3 is a little big for me but very nice looking. The 8 series is breathtaking.

Replaced the left tail light cluster for my M235i.
The entire unit is mounted with 2 metal screws and one plastic knob into socket thingy.
Apparently the plastic knob was broken and the whole unit sags and allowed dust/pollen/rain to enter.
Now, with the new one, it's nice and tight.

Cost me around $240.

With that being said, there is video evidence that stock vs stock there is little difference between the 2 cars and also there is evidence that our car may even be faster on the top end than an M2.

So.......
I got an "M" t-shirt for free and feel like a douche wearing it considering neither of my BMW's are actual "M" cars, despite tons of M-Performance parts.

It's a bit underwhelming. Fake vents and the sorts.. Aside from that it's not a bad car, imo. I'd be the one re-badging a black one into to a BMW Coupe lol

Well my motivation would be exactly that. I've always toyed with the idea of a Z Coupe, and I could get a new one with warranty albeit wearing a Japanese badge. That said I need fewer cars not more of them, especially impractical cars.

I got a $500 rebate check from BMWCCA after purchasing our 2019 M240i. There's a page on their website that lists the benefits.

That's a well known benefit - and candidly why many folks join the club. Free $ is always good!
