Sounds good! I'm having BMW do the walnut blasting this week, so I hope after that, I'll be able to pull some 12.xx passes.

You should have no problem if you are N54 with sub 13s runs. I ran some 13.2s with JB4 on my N55 and now have the flex fuel wires hoping to get in the 12s

That was the best thing they could do, and it's right on the way to the track!

Are there any trusted independent shops in the area? My car is out of warranty and I will go broke paying BMW. I've already had to shell out 1200 for a water pump.

I honestly haven't looked, I'm still under warranty.

BTW, to anyone in the Gump: Contact Adam with BMW service and he will hook you up with walnut blasting for $500. I am taking mine in this Friday and it is being performed by the lead tech. He is taking before and after pics for me and I will post results!

They certainly do the service. Mine was the first one they have done in a good while and they took before and after pics to show the results of the service. They did a great job!

Hey guys, just picked up an e93 last week, great car so far. Just switched back to BMW after having a couple LandRovers, but in the past I've had an e36 325i, e30 332, e46 330i, and e39 540i.

I live in Vestavia right off 31.

I have been considering doing the cleaning myself, with some scrubbing and hard work. Unfortunately I just moved into an apartment and no longer have a garage.

My starter is beginning to go bad so I have a new one ready to go on and would like to knock out both jobs at once.

Nice choice of car. I'll try to go again soon. We've had a meet up at village tavern before and rode in together. I've also called some meet ups at promenade in alabaster.

Does anyone have a muffler delete on their 335 that is around Birmingham often? I'm considering it on my car but would like to hear it in person before I commit.
