Does anyone know of a coder that is around? I need to have my Adaptive headlight modules coded, because mine fried and I got these replaced. I also need to have the Halos not flicker on start up. Will compensate for travel and labor.

There are a few that do it remotely, you just have to have the cable and a computer. I still need to do mine, I have a cable that I could loan out and I still have Tim's cable that I need to get back to him...

I'm going to be coding my new ones this week. I've coded before and have everything setup. I have yet to code an adaptive module, but shouldn't be much different than any others.

PM me though. I can give you the email for a great remote coder.

As a brief re-introduction, I've been a long time BMW owner with the last one being an e90 335. I had to let that go for a company car GLI, which caused me to fall off the face of the earth. With a recent job switch, I was looking real hard into the current BMW sedan offerings within my new company car policy, including the f30 335 and an F10 550 MSport (liked the N54 more and too floaty, respectively). The new M3 didn't fit the bill due to its current poor residual, so I ended up going to the dark side: B8.5 S4

I never looked twice at any Audi in the past due to their driving dynamics, but there's something special about the Rear Sport Differential that transforms the car.

Let's see how long till I get BMW withdrawals and pick up a 1-2 year old f80 M3 in a few years.

Hope to see some of you guys during an upcoming CCK or event. Don't hate me guys...

Selling a set of 189's I bought on here awhile ago for $250 - http://detroit.craigslist.org/mcb/pts/4499571339.html

I intended on following this guide to restore them - http://www.audiworld.com/tech/ext43.shtml

After cleaning off the brake dust I discovered a small crack on the inside on one of the wheels, but I didn't feel like getting it fixed.

Should hold air fine, but I just didn't want to risk it hitting a pothole or something.

Good winter set or weekend project!

Definitely. I believe there will be two this year. And e36 and myself. For once, a car that is in the hangar that is NOT on bags.

Does anyone have any shops that specialize on working with BMW's and performance in the greater Detroit area they would highly recommend?
