No, COBBs "marry" a car when installed and "unmarries" when you uninstall. One car at a time.

What's up everyone?

My 335is from my European Delivery sets sail from Bremerhaven tomorrow, hoping for Performance Center Delivery the first week in August. Looking forward to meeting everyone when I get it back over here

Hey Guys,
really quick Q,
Is there is a shop you guys recommend to do the whole walnut blasting thing?
I grew up on the Pasadena/Clear Lake area... currently Active Duty stationed in Shreveport. Coming home for a few weeks to visit and was thinking about having it done while there since family and friends can haul my butt around.

Greetings all,

Just picked up a 2011 SG Msport 335i CPO that is still under original warranty. Need recommendations on which Houston area dealer to take it to for maintenance.

Also, am contemplating the Performance Power Kit. Any suggestions on which local dealer has the best pricing for either software + install or just install?

Thanks to all.

Oh yeah...here's a quick pic I snapped. Need better ones though.

6mt. My last 2 cars have been autos and I've missed not having a 6spd every day. I did test drive the DCT, and it was very nice.

Hey guys, anyone have any E92 body parts for sale? I would like to replace my hood, trunk, and bumper. Just wanted to see if there was anything local before I bought new.

Looking for an e90 325i 2006 sedan part.

Front upper windshield molding - looks like the dealer has it for 35$ can anybody beat that? Online it's about 16$ but shipping, kills the savings...

And also looking for a pair of angel eyes.... Let me know, thanks

You guys will have better chance getting those things with the E90post vendors. Have you guys joined the E90post Houston yet???

Welcome, join us on E90post Houston.

For the meet, you can start with Coffee & Cars on the first Saturdays of every month. As far as local BMW meets, you just missed the Summer HBC meet.
