    how long can one put up with this hell?

    hmmmm so i left davis (apt. sitting for a friend) and headed out towards berkeley monday around 12
    got there in good time, around an hour and spent another hour desperately searching for somewhere to park (i swear the fools may be geniuses... but they can't drive for crap)
    after giving up and wasting gas i headed for the parking structure
    met a 16 year old genius in my class and darted for work after class ended
    thought i was gonna die on the drive back today
    this commuting thing is truly no fun... music, nicotine, and water can only do so much ;[[
    yo ibew you got any leads on some decent parking in berkeley ;]]
    except for those that require getting a permit that is

    Parking.

    This is how I do it. Get there at 6:30 am and park below the stadium. Unlimited time parking.
    Other than that park at Ashby bart ride to Berkeley and walk up Center st. stop at Starbucks and you are home.
    Bart is the easiest. $9 a day across from Spieker pool

    That would be a likely death sentence for me! No way I can get downtown from my house without going down either Fulton or Howe to hit the bike trail. Life's to short for that kind of insane risk!

    Thundervalley Casino

    Hubby has been there to gamble, but I\'ve only driven by. I probably saved $100 by doing that! When can you say that driving by someplace will save you money? Heehee ;-)

    Woow, cowboy. We\'re talking about 7/25 (Sunday)

    So, 10:45-11:00 will work. Hmmm, that means you can sleep in 15-30 more minutes ;-)

    I\'m assuming you want to be fairly close to your friend\'s house, right? Then we can meet at the Starbucks at Manzanita and Fair Oaks Blvd. (4005 Manzanita Ave., in front of the BelAir Market.) If we want to eat afterwards, there is a chinese place a few doors down, Subway and Taco Bell across the parking lot, and a Japanese restaurant across the street. There are other places, but these are the closest.

    I\'ll pass on the gambling.

    Re: Woow, cowboy. We're talking about 7/25 (Sunday)

    Viv,
    Sunday,Monday if I have to drive up twice- Woot!

    I was just kidding about the gambling, when I go up to Tahoe or Reno I am a big spender if all weekend I gamble $50 total away (for 2 days)
    You Viv are actually a big gambler. How long do you think it will be before your radiator neck cracks? Or the door moulding sags? Never I hope.
    Sunday 7/25 it is.

    I only have 11K miles on the car.

    I expect to have at least another 50K b/4 doing the radiator thing. The rad on my E34 went out around 63K. That just happened to be the day I let Hubby take it to the bay area for a business mtg. He only got as far as Davis. What are you talking about \"door moulding sags?\" Must be an E38 problem ;-)

    Moulding sags Viv

    The other day when I was asking about the 5 series the link that was brought up had something about the door moulding sagging as a common problem. What about oil pump bolts? MANY E38 have missing or finger tight oil pump bolts <99 MY the newer cars may have different bolts.
