Well said!

I do have to add, if the computer was purchased 2009/2010/2011/2012. Running a Windows VM should be more than enough for anything you'd possibly need Windows for.

I have a 2009 MacBook Pro, and running Parallels with a Windows 7 VM within Mac OS X. I am able to do whatever it is I might need Windows for such as running those darn BMW Coding Apps, or sometimes even games! (Such as a LoL or CS).

Computers now a days are no slouch, and unless if you are doing some serious Video/Photo rendering or CAD work. You shouldn't need to have to deal with the hassle of rebooting into Bootcamp just to run Windows.

On another note, my wastegates are starting to rattle much louder than before. I've been talking to my SA about bringing it in with the mods I have currently. But I have a feeling that I'll have to end up returning to stock before letting them either adjust my wastegates, or hopefully getting a new set of turbos.

I think an LSD, M3 suspension, Defiv Lockdown Kit, and Powerflex bushing are next on my list.

I still need to stop by FFTEC for my E85 kit, Ryan.

You'll want that LSD once you get all those extra horses out of the flexfuel kit. ;D

I've never heard of the lockdown kit, nor the power flex brand. What are they for?

I want to give it a try and see if it's worth it like some have made it seem.

Powerflex: http://store.powerflexusa.com/bmw-c3.aspx
Time to change out old OEM bushing that are most likely worn out. LOL. I'm sure some of mine are crap now that I'm at 80K Miles.


I'll be looking into the NGK 5992 Plugs as well.

Anybody here had GPS issues on their cars? Mines been going crazy like it'll read that I'm 1 block off from where I'm actually at. While driving back to the city earlier, the GPS reads I'm driving in the ocean and not on the bay bridge. Weird and any help would be great!

Yeah, I've definitely been getting that a bit more on my CIC nav. And usually in the city too...usually it fixes itself and/or just turn off/on the nav again to relocate

How do you turn off the nav while the car is on? I can only turn off my music on the push knob. Mines a LCI E90

I had that problem too but thought it was just because I had the old NAv disk (CCC iDrive). Also, thought it was because San Fran is just so tight that the Nav was off/confused. LOL.

Yeah, I thought that too but my video shows differently lol. I'm driving on the ocean haha. Crazy because I never had a single issue on my old cars navi. Maybe it's about that time to go big the dealership.

Only issue I have with my nav when it seems like I'm driving over water is due to it not knowing that there's been a new bridge added.

Decided to pull the trigger and to-go couple orders at a local Popeyes only to find out that the popcorn nuggets that I ordered were COMPLETELY uncooked -- minus the fried exterior. Any ideas as to what I should do?

Nick (Nsquared), I found a photo of an F30 with E9x M3 side mirrors! Looks pretty good.
