That works for me, maybe the "This home protected by Glock" sign next to it.

Welcome dude!

Most people aren't fans of Tuscon, myself included, but hey! You didn't exactly have a choice. Phoenix isn't too far of a drive either. Good to see someone with a rarity like a Z3 Coupe join up. (I miss my M Coupe a lot.)

I almost bought a 1999 M Coupe, but it had twice the miles, twice the price and just about the same power. The S52 has 240hp, the M54 has ~231hp and with the Supersprint Exhaust I figure it's close. I just put 19 inch Braid Wheels on it and I'm ready to go smaller... 17 or 18 inch Rondell 21s or ACS Type 2 or 3, but that will probably wait until I get there and can buy a set from LA and have them shipped.

Thanks! I have no plans to sell the Coupe any time soon, I haven't even gotten it back to 100% yet. The PO didn't take very good care of it. All the guy did was Jiffy Lube oil changes and let it sit and bake in the sun. I'll be rebuilding the calipers soon and replacing the warped rotors with new ones, new pads and braided stainless steel lines. I have new LCABS, Yaw sensor, various other little things. Once the mechanics and suspension are good I'll have the body work and paint done and last will be finding and replacing all the messed up interior pieces.

The roads here in Honolulu are terrible, I have driven cross country several times and never encountered so many potholes and cracks. I have encountered potholes so deep that all 4 wheels were in the pothole at once. Bent the tie rods on my 4Runner.

One of my favorite roads is Tantalus Drive in Honolulu, I've only been able to drive it in rental corolla, but it seemed to be well maintained?

Tantalus is great, the first time I did it was 1AM in the rain. I've done it a few times during the day. It's a great drive. The roads are mostly well maintained and there are some great views, just watch out for people speeding, bikes and narrow stretches.

I'm so ready to get off this miserable chunk of rock. Hawaii has great weather and scenery, but it is extremely congested, the roads are trashed and people can't drive. I'm guessing it's mostly this island, there are about 1 million people on this island and it is a much smaller area than Tucson. I'm taking the wife to Maui soon, I hope it's better there. //End Rant//
