I generally haunt SC, but these forums seem to offer what SC doesn't so I joined. Anway, I've had my 99 9-3 for a bit over 2 years now and have T5 suited it to around stage 3+, but it's down ATM while I wait for a Gt28, injectors, and a 3 bar map. That said, I'm in Newburyport Ma and I'm looking for a rent-a-bay or equivalent( college auto shop?) in the North of Boston region.
I was hoping amongst the large group of Mass. peeps on here that someone knew of a good place.
I do know of the upcoming event on Jan 8th, but cannot make that.
Thanks,
-Cm

So you're just looking "driveway space"? Pretty sure that there's a few people on here from N. Boston.

Side note: my roomate from college is from Newburyport. Lived with him for about 3 years.

I have a driveway, but working on a car in the cold is honestly one of my least favorite things to do...probly less preferable than licking a public toilet seat.:shock:

I know of a very good rent a bay in troy, Ny, which is as close to you in SoNY as it is to me in NE Ma. I used to live there, both in the literal and proverbial sense. It belongs to RPI and is 5 bucks for a bay and $15 for the lift. Good people and any tool you could ever need ever.

Welcome! Enjoy the link!

Working in the cold sucks - but if you dress for the weather and have a portable heater it's less of a bitch. An indoor garage is nice, but sometime you still need to provide the heat remember.

Good Luck on your search - wish I had a way to help you out.

Did that last year.
It was in the low teens
and I had to replace my clutch master in a 3 sided garage. I had a space heater and a fan to move the tepid air over my iced self (literally ice on my jacket near my mouth). I have inflamed joints from rock climbing and the cold sets them off hardcore.

Off topic, right?

Cm, I'm with you on working in the cold. I have had far too many bad experiences with this car on frigid days that required me to brave the cold...now I'm hard-pressed to do any sort of car work (even too lazy to pull spark plugs) in between October and April.

Through ninja skills and overwhelming dread of working in the cold I acquired a looong list of every technical school, club, organization, and association that has or potentially has a shop. Now the calls:rolleyes:
Dunno, might be worth it to throw an oil pressure gauge on it and risk the 3hr drive to the familiar one:confused:
I'll start making calls tomorrow and feedback here-hopefully others can save themselves the trouble.
