Has your friend done anything to his?

Not yet, he just bought it about it bout 3 weeks ago. Ive probably spent 15 hrs on this site in the past few days. Been reading and studying everything i can to see how these car are put together and how they run. What they can handle, and what you guys are doing to make them fast.

Hes never been into the building part to make them fast so im going to be helping him out and once i get all my parts sold and my stang sold, im going to be getting an 09 arctic white coupe with a mt.

I have never looked into any other cars other than chevys and fords. Dont get me wrong they make awesome power and are fun, but once i rode in and drove his 335i. I wanted one. My boss has owned a few 7 series and now has a new alpina b7. These are fun to drive too, but are a lot out of my price range.

I have an 07 silver coupe - if you wanna check out how the JB4 feels with E85 one day, let me know. I'm waiting on a few parts to be delivered before it's up and running again (replacing an injector, oil change and all new brakes).

I'm actually in Fishers, so we're close.... it definitely helps to be a little bit warmer, otherwise 2nd gear is completely worthless

Bought, sold and traded a bunch of cars through Coast to Coast (the one on 37, not their satellites). They are really good guys and have always taken good care of my family and I. Highly recommended. I'm generally opposed to name dropping, but if you let their main service guy there, David Cook, know you came recommended by me, it may get you the extra mile. I'm not sure if they service cars not bought through them, though. Even if they dont, he will definitely point you in the right direction, and I trust his recommendations.

I've enjoyed working with Hash Imports in Fishers.

Relatively new owner. I work downtown.

AWil335i: I would LOVE to get a ride in your TCU flashed car and see how the flash changes the transmission response!

No problem - it's more fun when it's a little warmer - I work close to downtown so PM me and we'll figure it out.

I know it's late notice, but everyone should bring their rides to Cars & Coffee Saturday. 10am - noon at 96th and Meridian (McAllisters). Going to be lots of amazing cars in beautiful weather.

If you still need the pads changed, call Autobahn Service in Greenwood. Peter is a good guy. Their service rate is $90/ hour so a lot less than a dealership rate.

Heard good things about Fathouse Fabrications but I've never used them.
