Wish1 - Are you glad you changed the CDV? Is there a big improvement?
Well after talking to Dave Zeckhausen yesterday, I decided to get the modified CDV from him instead of doing the CDV delete. I bought it for $37.50 shipped. It should be here next week.
Dave said the benefits of the modified CDV is that your car will look stock. Where as if the CDV was deleted it may be noticed by the BMW machanic and may cause some warranty issues.
Now I just have to find a shop that knows how to do this and for a reasonable price. So far, I got a quote from BPM in Mass. for $190, for 2 hours of labor. From doing a bit of research and asking folks on other boards, it's a simple procedure that should take 30 minutes - 1hour tops.
I'll keep the board posted on how it goes.
