Hello all! it's bit late, but allow me to introduce myself.

I purchased 2009 E92 335i M package last spring and I have been slowly modifying my car to my likings. I already know what I am going to do with the car, but it's probably going to take another year or so. Once done, I will post more pics of my car, but I don't have much to show at this time. Just another 335i on the road. Anyways, I have been active on different forums for a while so I am not new to the forum scene, but I am new to the BMW (N54) scene, so I'll have a lot of questions coming up ahead. And yes, I do know how to use the search button

Before owning the BMW, I had 2 Audi's before. The B7 S4 was my last car with fair amount of mods done. It won First and Second place consecutively in a local annual Audi meet and it definitely a head turner. And I still miss the exhaust sound to this date, even though it was loud as hell.

It's definitely a different driving experience as AWD to RWD transition is world of a difference. Taking slow turns on a rainy day takes some time to get used to, but I am enjoying the joy of RWD and no regrets here. Anyways, I see that Hellokitty has posted above, but he and I have couple more friends who are planning on getting E92, so we'll definitely have a group going by next summer.

lol. hello kitty!? hello?! it's hellomyBMW!
Anyways, yes, dextrek and I are friends. You will see us cruising around/doing pulls at night once in a while on 275, 696 and m-14. Last time we did pulls here and there, we ended up seeing a helicopter with spot lights on searching for something... (Not sure if it was us) but Dextrek over here decides to do a drift in middle of the road while the helicopter was flying right above us.
Btw I like your photo at the track. I wonder who took it for you.

Keep us posted for any car meets! Dextrek and I are always down.

Your screen name looks familiar from the Zine. Welcome to the dark side.

I hope to be making the journey back in the near future.

Have you considered having someone do the coding remotely? There are a few guys that do this you just need the cable and a laptop with internet connection.

I used a West Coast guy named Ken Atkinson (Wedge1967) and he is an expert at coding. He can be reached at 503.679.3538. I also have the cable and you are welcome to borrow it if you want.

What kind of coding did you get done Blaster? I'm looking to get some work done. Specifically the Alpina trans flash.
