Battery Programming?

Hey Vancouver!

I need a new battery for my '08 328i. I'm going to install it myself but want to take it somewhere to have it registered because I've heard so much about that. I've gotten different information from a few places I've called. Can anyone tell me what you've done for your batteries/ recommend a place to go? I'm in Langley.

Thanks!

I'm looking to tune my 2007 e92 335i this weekend. Going to order the JB4 + BMS DCI online and probably get a trunk meth kit sometime after. Anyone recommend a tuning shop in GVA to help me with this? Gonna need a mechanic patient enough to run me through how the maps work and if I get the BMS Trunk Meth Kit, do I need to buy a meth elbow/bung?

If there are any private mechanics out there who are willing to offer their services to tune my car please PM me.

I know CG Motorsports in Richmond offer tuning services, but I'm not sure if they're experienced with the JB4 / other BMS products.

Hello Vancouver peeps....
Anyone know much about Shaughnessy Village?

Also, what part(s)/cities are relatively close (commute friendly) to downtown Vancouver?

I heard that place is run down and out dated. Alos read some google reviews I'm from the city but have never stayed there before an easy place to commute would be joyce in one of those highrise condos. Or if u could find a place around the science world area more torwards the westend. Stay away from chinatown, broadway-clark hastings veneables. There's are a couple condos being bult on kingsway and a fairly new one that just built beside pho hoa on kingsway. Or your looking to go a bit further, metrotown would be a decent place to. New west coquitlam is just to far to commute to dt in the morning for work.

Hey Guys! Finally found the right thread. I'm trying to get a bunch of people to together for car meets and drives in Vancouver BC and surrounding cities (Burnaby, Coquitlam, Richmond,etc). I just joined the forum a couple days ago and would love to meet other car enthusiasts and have get together's. I am willing to setup meets or meet with people at chosen locations. I looked around for BMW groups in the area but could not find any. If anyone wants to meet up, just give me date and location. I've got fairly open schedule.

Is there a Facebook page for Vancouver BMW owners?

Also, does anyone know of any good deals on cold air intakes?
