Nioceeeeeee!! That JB4 is going to transform that thing into a beast! Couple days to adapt and you're set! Perfect wheels to compliment the 335 IMO... Can't go wrong with LMs... and as far as the drop, KWs FTW!!

Lil help ..... door locks on the car are not working. Searching around here indicates that it may be a fuse or as much as the door actuator. The sound came more from the front passenger side and it sounded like a gear jumping on a motorcycle. After that, the doors would not lock or unlock with the key fob or the access button on the dash. Anyone deal with this before? Would it be covered under warranty? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Yes sir. Ended up taking it to BMW and it was covered. Change all the actuators and increased the amperage. Said it is common. Good thing I had the warranty still. Also, got the front end checked. It was making a small clunking sound and was pulling at a stop. Changed the struts and bushings. All covered. Saved a mint on that.

That dark blue M3 sedan looks like the one that was revving on my last week on Mesa. Loud as hell! Lol. Nice cars tho.

Anyone know a decent priced place to get 19" tires mounted? Most places I call are quoting about 100 to mount and balance all 4.

that's sounds about right on the price... I believe I payed 80 for mine, but the place has since closed down...

couple of things or questions:

I receive the advertising emails from EP BMW, and sometimes there is the one that says .. come get free breakfast at BMW... Has any one gone to these sales pitch events? Is the breakfast any good?

Also, gas wise, I use 91 octane from Shell. Have not tried any thing else out there. What do you use, Chevron, Shell, Fina, Valero, Circle K .....? Why?

Oh, one more I asked before but not sure i understand, my daytime running lights are not angel eyes. What is the easiest and most cost effective way to get that modified?

These EP threads are pretty dead on almost all the forums... So, we usually post up on our Facebook page, were all the locals can keep in touch and share vids and pics from any meets and runs we have, or just pics of cars we love... www.facebook.com/modfreaksoftexaspage

Here's a teaser pic from our last week's run out to Ruidoso, NM run from the back of the pack...



and the quick vid we shot...

http://youtu.be/83lEAtpjhmk

You can see a 700hp+ CTS-V, 700hp+ C63 AMG, and a 600hp GT-R, amongst others in the group...

Hi all,

I found this nice bmw 2011 E92 on autotrader (link here) and I would like to see if some member here dealt with or know something about this dealer Stogner in El Paso. I really like the car and I think it's a good price, but since I'm not local there I want to get some advice, if possible.
