Bah, I don't see the problem in asking. This is the off-topic area, and compared to some of the other topics discussed... hardly that bad. If it hasn't gone away after a few days, I'd just go see a dentist. At the very least call them. Yes you wi

The BMW forums always screams tws 10W60, or the world will explode. But pretty sure its just people who just repeats what they have heard from others who have heard from others who once was at a track day with Brian who once saw a guy who onwed a M3.

If you need FAX, I believe Vonage supports them, and we had good luck with ViaTalk as a VoIP provider. If you just want to park the #, the best bet is T-Mobile prepaid. Pickup a phone and port your # - $3.99/mo gives you 30 minutes or 30 texts.

Well, having AMP or VOLT gauge is EVEN BETTER but that all depends upon driver scanning the instrument cluster once in awhile! That is a lost art.
