    Pray for me ...

    My wife will be driving the coupe as her daily driver. With the economy down , she will not be leasing her usual big SUV.She is going from a Saab SUV to the coupe.I will be putting the old 635 to daily work.I am thankful we are able to make such choices in hard times,and both still employed.She looks at the coupe as a mini suv.I see a clutch job coming down the road.

    You guys are not going to belive this ,but

    first week she gets a flat ( ran over a screw ) we all know what that means.Tow job to the shop for a flat tire ! Thank god we have AAA and I got the warranty on the tires.Still a big pain in the arass . I guess a tire kit is in our future, or a 335 coupe.

    Re: My wife managed to break a brand new Bilstien

    Was'nt even two weeks that I had installed nw Bilstien Sports in my car when she came home and tiold me the car felt funny when drivinfg it..

    When I realized the shiock was brken I asked her what she hit was it a pothole or what... she said she did nothing...


    don't make sense to me.... I just figured she was lye-ing and dropped the subject went out bought another Bilstein Sport and threw it in. Figured thats the simplest way around this controversy.

    time warranty? You just need to send in the dead biltien right?

    Picked up the car today from the instaler

    The bummer is I had to get both back tires ( had about 6K miles on them )road hazard only covered the one tire. So a total of about $170.00 out of pocket . Could have been worse . Wife still wants to drive the coupe, got to get about 6 months out of it . What you gona do ?

    have her drive the cheaper car to repair!

    These are all the things my wife has damaged while driving my coupe.

    1. Curbed a FRONT?! wheel at the bank...

    2. ripped the airbag sensor cord from its socket.

    3. once again, set off the now defective seat sensor by throwing her 30 lb. purse down on it...

    4. well, I guess that's it since she's allowed to drive only when I've been drinking...

    My other car is an 85 635 csi, that can rack up

    bills faster then the coupe.The 30 lb purse goes in the hatch back ! No food or beverages /and no high heals.Its a gamble but if I make it through the next 6 months I get to keep both cars,if not one will have to go.
