Hey all,

I just picked up my 07 335 coupe a couple of weeks ago. My username was Jimwantsa3 and is now Alpine Blur. I have been posting on the main forum for a few weeks but I thought I would intro myself to the SA crowd. I have already traded e-mail with Skim once (sorry I couldn't make it to the first meet).

Here is the link to the post I put up when I got the car (some pics as well):

I am hoping I will be able to make some valid contributions.

I will start SA involvement by passing along some info:

I was reading about the HPFP and a possible relation to ethanol content in fuel. SInce Valero is the most convenient gas retailer for me, I contacted them about their ethanol content. They say there is no ethanol in their fuel here in San Antonio but that they have an ethanol blend they are required to use in Houston. I am not sure why there is a difference.

Next, I have a few Carfax searches left on my account. Please PM me if you want me to run a VIN.

Lastly, I just DL the torrent for the BMW 2009.1 nav maps and burned it successfully to a dvd. It works great in my car.

Here is the link to the torrent:

If you are unable to burn a copy, I'd be happy to burn one for any of the local SA guys/gals.
