1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Oooh, someone's getting riled up. Aww, did I hit a nerve somewhere? I'm guessing "I pretty much walk my own road" is code for "real people don't like me any more than internet people".

    :laugh: Like you could hit one of my nerves. Darling, you are so cute.

    That reply came so quickly upon mine. How long did you sit there hitting refresh?

    I'm still participating in this because I'm really, really bored. Just curious, what's your excuse?

    In cars we drive news, I took my e46 to another mechanic after that ridiculous quote for the SMG pump replacement. He switched out the relay for the unit (which I suggested to the first mechanic) and ran all the diagnostics and said that fixed it. Relay part and labor was about $20 versus the original $4700 quote from the first mechanic. Pretty good savings. I now feel $4k richer somehow.

    Bravo sir. I've recently sunk a chunk into my e46, but it's back to being tip top.

    The ironic thing is that waiting to get to work on your car is what cost that first mechanic so much $$. Unless the plan was to take it elsewhere for a second quote regardless.

    On the one hand, I'm happy for deepitm and glad he didn't have to shell major coin. On the other hand, I'm sad he didn't get to do a manual swap.

    Yeah, I think I will just keep the SMG as is and maybe just get a manual somewhere down the road. Like when those Cayman GT4s have depreciated. Cayman GTS is pretty sweet too.

    I hope you bought the second mechanic a nice 6-pack after that!

    4k? That's enough for a pair of shoes, allegedly.

    Nice work. :)
