That said, I've had nothing but great experiences with my SA Thad Tucker there; bought him a bottle of Johnnie Walker Black for Christmas since he's gone above and beyond for me on several occasions.

Congrats on the new 335i being near! You hear a lot more of the wastegate blowoff on the N55 than the N54, reminds you even more that there's a turbo under the hood. Have you found a new home for your E92? And do you have your mod/performance upgrade list already sorted out?
Hi John - yes, I've decided that aside from the M-Perf exhaust and black grilles that will be installed at the port, I'm going to wait for Dinan S2 (not quite ready for F30 yet) and a 5" intercooler. Probably will add wheels/tires when the stockers wear out.

I've had several bites on the car, but no firm purchasers yet, although I have 2 that are requesting more info and indicating they're serious buyers. One's from up in the Dallas area. Car's running SUPER good with this cool air...almost hate to give it up, but can't keep 3 cars.

See you at B&B this weekend, although we may not do the lunch - I'm not sure if Louie M's can do 100 people or thereabouts without a huge wait time. Also, I'm awaiting word from Dudley at BMWofAus regarding when the car will arrive - might be next weekend!
