BMW - maintenance, modifying and customizing.

In the past you would read of posts where a BMW owner was working in their driveway in the rain changing their brakes in preparation for an upcoming chapter driving event.

Am I generalizing about the younger crowd? Absolutely. Take a look at the classifieds if you don't believe me.
In the past? What, like April of 2016 when you joined this forum? Yeah, those were the good ole days...
