Who else is from the Bragg/Fayettenam area?

Oh, and I'm not sure but I think the exhaust that came with it is catless, and in NC we obviously have emissions testing...(it was a FL car before and they don't have testing). Any tips on passing emissions with a catless exhaust in this area? I searched and found a DP fix but it seemed like some sort of wiring harness?

Coming from the CT9A/4G63 platform which is knew a lot about...going to the E92/S65 platform which I know nothing about...in which I'm starting to read right NOW! Thanks guys!

Welcome to the Forums, Im in Fayetteville also but I own a 135i. So I stop here to see whats going on locally since there are very few of us non 3series guys. )

All of this is to say that either 1) you have a DPfix w/the Dinan tune or 2) you don't have catless dps, but maybe aftermarket catted dps. In NC, they typically do not do visual checks underneath. Even if they did, they wouldn't check the dps. They'd have to remove the bottom cover and that's just too much work for an inspection. lol
I called a BMW dealer who is a Dinan draler and the tech was really cool. He said as long as a CEL isnt on it should pass. So im thinking i should be good to go. And thats WAY too much work to check for inspection...which works for me! Lol

You could do the oil change yourself 5 times just from the commute time alone lol. Leith is okay I suppose. Don't use them except when I need some OEM part and didn't want to wait for shipping.

Anyone know a place in the Raleigh/Durham/Cary area that I can check out and buy an SA2010 spec helmet? Have a track day coming up in August and BMW CCA no longer allows my old M spec helmet.
Thanks.

Thanks, if there aren't any other places closer to the triangle, I may just have to do that one weekend. I see good prices/selections online, but am hesitant to order a helmet without trying the 'fit' on first.
