    Alan,
    People will see you post.
    It is not necessary to use a large font every time and in different colors.

    Maybe Alan needs to be able to see what he writes

    I had a great time today at Passport. Their new facility was absolutely spectacular, especially if you remember their old building.

    Great thanks to Alan, Jude, and the rest of the DIY staff for running such a smooth event. Passport was also excellent as their techs were very helpful and gracious with their tools. Seemed like everybody was able to get everything they needed to get done, except for the poor girl with the leak in the gas tank. Thanks for not smoking everybody!!!

    I'll post pics later, kinda tired.

    Another terrific event. Thanks to Jude, Allen, Tony and everyone else that made it happen!

    Passport was great- excellent facilities and helpful techs. But there did seem to be a bit of an issue with parts support. I would enthusiastically return for any future DIYs at Passport, but I would strongly consider bringing my own parts....

    It's fantastic to have DIYs in Maryland now- looking forward to more!!!

    Great DIY session at Passport BMW

    Thanks to Alan and Jude and all that organized the DIY at Passport. It was our first DIY and can't believe what a great opportunity it was to have access to Passport's state of the art service area. My husband was in seventh heaven!

    Again, thanks to all that did such a great job with scheduling, lunch and all - and to Passport for having us!

    Thumbs up What a Productive Event!!

    Passport BMW had a nice facility and they had great staff members. Jude and Alan did a wonderful job in making sure everyone had a chance to work on their vehicles. I also enjoyed meeting our new NCC members to the club. As the next Lady DIY coordinator, I do look forward to next month's DIY event at Martin Motorsports. So ladies, get ready! I look forward to seeing you there! Last note: Special thanks to Ethan -the BMW mechanic and James- the Parts salesperson for their extra efforts!

    Is anyone missing a 17mm Craftsman Impact socket? I picked up an extra one at the DIY.
