But in all honesty Sara you could use a 0.5 - 1" drop in the front and you'd be set! Toss in a carbon fiber wrap of the roof around the sunroof and you'd be bonkers (Says the guy who's car is still relatively stock...)!

Hey guys I'll be in the market for a new 335i coupe around july of next year and i was wondering what king of experiences everyone has had with the dealers around this area? I have heard good things about the dealership in north Houston and was wondering if anyone would have any better experience with Brian Harris BMW or Moss Motors BMW, two local BMW dealers. Perhaps even another dealership that is perfered in this area. I would like to stay within a 1 day drive so lets say Mississippi, texas, Louisiana, or Arkansas area?

I got mine from Alabama. And I think almost everyone here will tell you out of state will be a better option. What color is your evo???

I worked at Walker BMW in Alexandria, LA, for 4 years. Great service manager, now, and the whole facility is brand spanking new. I just saw it for the first time, a month or so ago, and it was shocking to see. The technician areas, especially.

Just realized I failed to mention this in your thread. I was too busy bashing Peake, haha.

I got mine used, but also out of state. Picked it up in Houston. The dealers out here didn't have much of a selection, and the few cars they did have were beat.

Side note though, there's no such thing as a USDM 09 EVO. The model year went from 2008 to 2010 in the US. They never released a model for 2009. So do you have an 08 or a 2010?

Bought the car in august of 09 so the model must be a 08 cause i remember regretting something that i have forgotten about now like 2 months after I got it.
in any case I hate people asking me if I go race with the ricers here in BR so I'm going to grab a very lovely 3 series or the new coupe coming out then hopefully it will be much nicer to drive.
