Titanium silver 08 335xi sedan here. Live in Old Fair Oaks. Office is in Roseville by Galleria. Drive 80 to 65, 50... all over Sacramento. JB4 G5 under hood and some other stuff. No exterior mods.

Always looking for fellow E90 brethren!

Anyone have experience with Koni Sports paired with H&R sport springs? I'm currently about to order up the Koni's and go that route. KW's are the other option but a bit too much cheddar.

Hope to see some of you out on the roads!

True, once you get to the fuel rail, you can just pop them out and have them cleaned for like $150. But then again, I think that these cars sometimes have injector issues without e85 so it's hard to say if it was coincidence.

Well since I have an AT, I don't hear it that often. It's a bit silly but I wanted one.

Could be a Coincidence, so far so good for me. It's good once a month to run regular octane, 1 fill up.

Anyone running e85 + meth? E85 alone pulls better for me than race gas.

Although I did have an issue the other day about overheating or something once I hit 135mph and went to limp mode. So e85 isn't without issues

E85 Actually burns cooler in the combustion chamber than regular gasoline and hundred octane. I am not sure your issue was related to the E85?

Do you have an upgraded FMIC?

I'm waiting on VRSF but I am about ot give up on them for their new FMIC and DPs.. However I have meth coming in and plan to grab a cob so I can run the flash on top of it all with E85.

Me neither.. Most 335is aren't that fast, then again the fastest one in the world is slower than the slowest vehicle I own (besides my own 335i) so I'm not really worried about ANY 335i per se hahaha.

Got around to updated the Cobb about a year today and will be trying the 4.xx version maps tomorrow. Hopefully I will be even more in love.

When I am actually home I am in the south Sacramento area. However, I am all over the place haha. I'm always down for a race. Quarter mile, highway pull, m3 dragon drives it's all good with me.

Long time no talk man. Haha, I'm still in Afghanistan just had to jump in the mix. I should be home in a couple of months. I'm thinking June time frame or so. You guys are definitely getting more mods done. Good shit.

Every time I raced my buddy back at home he would run e85+meth with me running 91+85. He put a good lead on me. I've filled up countless times with straight 100 octane over at some gas station in sac. Never was too satisfied with it. Car seemed to like e85 more.

i think we should get a e90post get together or something. never meet all the sac folks and been just all chatting on the forum. a small gathering or small meet up photoshooting would be great.

I agree 100%. I have met a few people from the forums both in California and Tennessee. It always seems a lot hard to get people together the Sacramento area for whatever reason. If it helps out I am down to put in for a bbq or something. So Cal does it right. Must be something in the water.

I am aware of these meets. It wasn't until recently that they started attracting more attention. I was visiting Sac last summer and meets were far and few between. There was a Euro meetup that mostly included exotics and a lollicup meet which was shut down early due to certain circumstances; none of which were strictly BMW. Also, not everyone is always down to just go in a parking lot and shoot the shit.

Variety is important when trying to get people together as some have family obligations, gf's, kids or whatnot. Bay area meets are a prime example.

Should get a drive going up to Tahoe or some place after the weather heats up a bit more for those of us using Summer tires only.
