F you FedEx.

The throw out bearing in my 1998 Jeep Wrangler has been making noise. I figure with close to 160k miles, might as well do the whole clutch, especially since I have these months in "isolation". I opt to order a new flywheel, since resurfacing the flywheel on this application is not recommended due to the slight concave design. Flywheel has been on back order for about a month now.

FedEx guy comes, it's raining, and he decides to throw an already ripped open box containing the flywheel onto my asphalt driveway. He threw it far enough that the noise it made when it hit the ground caused my neighbor standing in his garage across the street to turn around. I give the FedEx guy a "WTF" look, and he speeds away. Flywheel has hit the asphalt on the exposed part of the box, and knicked one of the teeth for the crankshaft sensor. Perfect.

Wifey had broken her very filigrane engagement ring for the 3rd time since she wears it even she's not single handed. I confess that this makes me a bit sad on one side for taking not enough care to this, but onto flip side I am a lucky guy that Im married to a crafty skilled women.
Now the plan is, repairing the ring for the 3rd time at the jeweller by fine soldering and buy her a simple but nice substitute, she had agreed to this suggest.
I know her taste very well and had chosen this one here, whaddya guys think?
She could wear the real one then at other moments when not working...

You guys in OT sucked me in. I just realized how long it's been since I even looked at the F85/F86 forum.

Welcome to the club. It's been about 9-10 years since I went to any forum other than OT. The super secret off topic thread doesn't count....it's still off topic.

Wait, there's something on here BESIDES OT????

Every now and then I have to remember the procedure to reset my moonroof, or get a link to TireRack that supports bimmerpost.

I really want a Flint, fliptop stainless steel lighter. Do you know the ones that you put lighter fluid in. Only thing I could find here is the butane ones

That's not a Zippo, it's a flame thrower.
