I've tried detergent and degreaser. This crap won't go away and now there is trail mark from the washing of the detergent and degreaser.

Reseal the whole driveway over the spots and everything else. Then park on the street.

Asphalt is the inferior choice of paved surfaces. What do you expect?

So I'm pretty sure I'm going to be buying an E36 M3 soon for a dd. Does anyone know a "good" M3 or E36 forum? AKA like mt.net- performance over style, knowledgeable, not full of people like Hyper, etc.

Any thoughts on the best way for me to package a CHRA to go to Europe?

The way I packaged mine was I used some very soft styrofoam and pressed it over the blades and used the flat sides of the styrofoam to hold the CHRA in place. Close off all the oil/water ports with either tape or some hardware. Use various items such as peanuts, little amazon style airbags, etc..to cushion the unit. I did this with a gt2560 that went across the country and it worked well.

If you can, double box it. Or at the very least cut a couple cardboard "reinforcements" and stick them around all sides of the box.

Plastic bag it and fill up with plenty of peanuts.

I believe so, but I had a fuel hose go kool-aid man on me and gasoline funked the crap out of the asphalt.

I just made an incredible save in BF3. While flying the F-18 in conquest, I somehow managed to land it at about a 60* angle against a building, step onto the roof and cap the objective...and since the plane didn't explode, I proceeding to get back in, hit the boosters and take off again. INCREDIBLE!


On a side note, the damn game keeps resetting all my ---- so that I don't have any acheivements...I'll play a match, then start a new one and all my ---- is gone. WTF?!

I've had both and I can say they both feel about the same, but Purple Power is not as volatile as gasoline and not as easily washed away with water so therefore stays burning for much longer.
