Well aboard! Just missed the meet last night. When you get a chance, check out VegasBimmers on facebook. Have any plans for your car?

If you have patience (and maybe small hands), DIY is the best choice. Their labor rate is $75/hour which just over two hours. My first time doing dp took me 6, but I'm a giant and it's nothing but a tight squeeze under there.

You will also need a good set of tools along with a set of ramps.

I'm sure its been posted on here before, but which dealer do you guys use for servicing? Which one is more mod friendly? I don't want to put a whole bunch of parts on and have to take them off every time I bring the car in for service.

Yes they do. If you have to use a dealer then the one on Sahara gets my vote as well. If you need a good independent shop SW Bimmers is the way to go.

Well I would prefer at this time to use the dealer for anything since my car is CPO and I still have 3 years and 75,000 miles on my coverage.

My only real plans for performance mods are the DCI I already put on and the Procede I will be installing next weekend. I know those have to come off for servicing. Would an FMIC need to come off as well?

You'll be fine with an intercooler. The main mods that the dealer would flip a shit on are dp, meth, tune, cp, and some time intakes.

The only thing I am planning in the near future is to put LCI tail-lights. Need to find someone local to code, dont want to drive to Cali. I will post some pictures later.
