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.

Once a 335is is tuned (OTS), its really no different than the 335i.

I wasn't talking about the literal 335is (if that is even a model..) I was saying the 335i in general is not what I'd consider "fast" I'm a 4G guy so its a little different world for us.

S#*T!!!

I'm in town from Oregon on business (Muay Thai seminar). I'm staying at the Lionsgate in McClellan, and while I was out looking for a place to eat I hit a f@$king median! I chunked up the sidewalls pretty damn bad and I know that I cracked at least one wheel, but I'm betting that I got two.

I have tires from America's Tire that are guaranteed so if I can find an America's Tire I'll be ok there, but I'm worried about the wheels. I have Gunmetal VMR CSL's on the car, 8 1/2x19 in front and 9 1/2x 19 in the back.

So my question is, where the hell can a brother find wheels that will work in this town? I'll only need two in that size. Here's a few thoughts..

1) does anyone have rims in that size that they are looking to sell? (I'm on a budget)

2) does anyone have some old rims and tires (stockers) that I could "rent" for the trip home on Sunday night? I could have them shipped back the next day. I'd be happy to pay for the privilege. I certianly wouldn't screw anyone over, I'm a man of my word.

3) Does anybody know a place in town that I could buy matching rims for my car?

Sorry to bug, but I'm kinda screwed here. I've got 3 employees riding with me and I've got to get this shit handled by Sunday morning, and I've got a shit load of training to do in the next few days. Thanks in advance for any ideas people!!

My name is Chad and I can be reached at 503-949-2188.

Anyone in here know of anyone in/around Sacramento area that would be up for making some good money this weekend by installing my new shocks/springs on my 08 335xi? I do not know how to do it but I'm willing to help and pay good cash to have it done this weekend.

It's my daily driver and I have a full weekly work schedule and simply cannot part with the car for long. Hoping to find someone interested and capable who would want to knock it out Saturday ideally and make some benjamins and be provided with lunch and beer etc.

Help me out!

tjkeller at gmail.com

I'm a good helper and want to learn how to do this for future.... just need someone competent who can get it done right and get it done in a decent amount of time. I'm not afraid of paying top dollar if I can get it taken care of tomorrow, too.

no they are not. they just came out a new design injector supposed to be superior than the current one which is "stronger, more reliable". but it is not under recall.

but only limit to production date 03/07 or newer, so mine is no luck. hate this shit always happens to me

Nice I'll have a talk with Bob and see if he can give me a deal on injectors. But if not broken, i'll just hold off.

Interesting, my build date is 07/07. How much is this? Is there any value to this?

it depends. if they still stock the 261 injectors, then they will have to put those in ur car first when ur injectors blew. 3 months ago when i had them replace 6 injectors, with discount, i still paid $1100. so u figure.

u need to find some vendor who can do the Alpina flash, there's 1 in bay area i think.
