Ok, so I hate you guys now. Just ordered the DPs, clutch delay valve delete, and short throws for the 335 and 323. Problem is the Dps are backordered until 4/19

So I was driving down 35 the other day, bit of gravel got kicked up and chipped some paint off the hood. Very minor but still something that needs fixed. Any recommendations for shops in ames or dsm?

pretty awesome. kept me updated throughout, caught a fitment issue on a item i wanted. love the wheels, tires made a huge difference driving through the snow over the stock run flats, they're continental all seasons. no problems with balancing.

Nice KC!!! Is there anywhere other than Altoona Walmart to get 93 octane? And if so is it an ethanol blend?

Brian - I have been out of the scene per se, but thats the only place I know that still does anymore. I thought they had or were switching out to 91 soon?

But, I heard there is a place that sells Sunoco 260GT on a pump. It is 100 octane unleaded and contains 9% ethanol.

I can do some digging into and see if I can find out where if you want to go this route. Text me your phone #. I texted you a while back but never heard from you - assumed you have changed your #.

Nope same number just with Verizon now.

They had 93 the other night, and it was at more than one pump.The 100 would be fun but probably worth the price. Just was wondering if there was a closer alternative

Don't recall getting a text but I may have.

I don't daily drive it or take it to the track anymore. The e46 has been more fun at the track so that's what I take now. The 335 is just my fun car now, it sees the streets just on the weekends for the most part.
