Edmonton Mini-Meet again?

Just wondering if you guys wanted to meet up again this Sunday July 27 around 3pm? Weather is suppose to be variable cloudiness. It could be a better day for photos???

I have found 5 guys over at M3post. What do you guys think? Meet at the same place? Top of the UofA staff parking lot? Scooby please bring your camera again.

If we have a bigger turnout, then go for a drive and we'll hit the henday after!

Right on sparky. I want to see those rims of yours.

P.S I believe you will still lead in age. Over at M3Post most are in our early-mid 30's...

No rims yet

They just got inspected at Morr and are going over to UED for tires soon.

I'll hold my opinion of the whole GB

We can all get together in August too since I am sure many or going on vacation, weather right now is the best.

Car is still strong. The other day it was cooler and a little wet, the power was so fast. AWD in the wet is dangerous

Looking forward to the fall.

The new rims are gonna be even faster. Can't wait

Des, how noticeable is the Dinan flash? Where did you get it done? (not like it matters to me in my NA car )

This is what I wrote to a forum member that inquired on the price and the after-effects of Dinan.

I purchased my Dinan Stage II from Calgary BMW as it was $300 cheaper than any of the dealerships that offered the service in Edmonton. I paid $1999.99 (not including tax) for the Dinan Flash and $120 for the labor (again, not including tax).

I recorded my mileage from Edmonton to Calgary and I was able to get 29.7mpg (pre-flash). When I drove back from Calgary back to Edmonton, I was able to get 32.9mpg (post-flash). One thing I noticed right away was the amount of power deliver later on in the powerband. I wouldn't say it is delivered all at 1,500 RPM, but around 2,500-3000.

We decided to head home immediately after the flash, so I left the dealer parking lot and saw an open road leading to an intersection about to turn yellow. Lets just say, I wasn't used to all this power at first, and I had a run in with an undercover cop that told me I was going "excessively" fast in what seemed to be a 50 zone.

I was rolling with 2 other people on my trip to Calgary and they definitely notice the difference. A couple things that I noticed post-flash is that my car burn's a bit more fuel. That said I am alot more cautious about how I drive now. However, this is deceiving as the computer says that I've been getting BETTER mileage out of my car. Pre-Flash MPG Range - 19.2-19.7 / Post-Flash - 19.7-20.2.

Another thing is, this number can decrease substantially if you go WOT (Wide Open Throttle) on the Dinan Flash, however, the decrease was not so much stock. Another thing is, I get alot of wheel spin at 1st, 2nd, and sometimes 3rd when I'm redlining it.... AND at 5th/6th gear, the car pulls like a MF. One last thing, my car is ridiculously powerful now. I raced my co-workers 2007 SLK 55 AMG, which had quite a bit more HP than I did before the Dinan Flash, minus 100 some pounds. I had one passenger in my car that day, and I was able to take him.

JAWS> if you want to try it out, gimme a shout and we'll go for a ride!

On another note,

Anyone selling their tires from their e90 w/ sport package (330i or 335i)?

My front passenger tire has a bump and good year says they' can't repair it, so I need to get replacements.

Well said LeeD31, the car pulls like a MF and just pulls more in the next gear, it is addictive for sure. Imagine how an AWD car feels.

I'm glad Calgary BMW got you in.
