Yeah, I didn't HAVE to do anything. I loved the Bimmer, and I sold it to a friend with buy-back dibs, so it's all good. I got the itch and wanted an 80 or 100 for longer romps. The BMW was my SoCal cool kid car when I was at Camp Pendleton. I regret nothing. The 100 has really impressed me, and I'll have a correctly built 40 for the bigger stuff.

On the other hand... Redline hasn't gotten all the way through it yet. I'll be shocked if they don't find some other cut corner before all is said and done. Almost comical at this point.

Thanks for listening to me whine, everyone! Sometimes you just have to get it out.

I personally have no faith in Redline either these days. I know of a vehicle or two that have been sitting there going on two years while they make excuses, work other vehicles and apparently keep taking on more work than they can do...

So far my experience has been awesome. I'll probably post up my experience with some pics or something once all is said and done.

That really really really sucks. $45k in 2011 into a growth stock mutual-fund would have been about $60k-70k right now.
I can't even imagine dropping all that cash and it just being terrible! Well, I can actually. Did they ever give you a reason as to why everything was just terrible?

No, but there are a lot of theories out there on some of the other forums. Hopefully I get everything straightened out at Redline, and get out on the trails and stop thinking about that mess. Not much else I can do, but I'm sure I'll move on when I get on some slickrock.
