I was thinking about what you said how I should do this... I might at least apply but I just don't see them hiring someone without sales experience. Plus I'm a full time student and even though its online... looking at working 40hrs a week could put me in a bad spot when grades come out.

But damn, I'd love to do it

Is it a full time position? I dunno, sounds cool. But at the same time if it's a sale position I'd be afraid of being mad bored if it were slow...

That's probably not the reality. You would likely have to make calls to try to drum up business. Its a contact sport.

Vu, my JB3 looks totally different than yours?

like that extra little wire thing that's not hooked up to anything, it doesn't exist on my mine, and the actual control box has another input at the top. Does yours? Man, I'm so confused!

Probably something to do with the methanol control they're planning on implementing soon.

That's exactly what Terry said...instead of using the wire for remote map switching via my boost guage, the took it out of the new firmware because they will be using that part of the JB3 for meth.

Everything is in and installed! FINALLY!!!!

I took it out for a 5 minute drive last night, hit boost once because the car was still cold. Got to 13.8 psi on a little over 3/4 throttle, car feels ok but I had one pull in 2nd gear and that was it....other than that I have no idea, car has sat since.

hahahaha... don't wanna play with your new toy?

I'm seriously back to considering getting into a 135 right now instead of saving up for an M3. I think I'd rather have $10-12k for modding and go full race on the damn thing while still coming out $10,000 cheaper than the stock M3... or more if I get a CPO.

What do you guys think? I'm gonna wait till winter is over cuz I want my xdrive for it but I'm talking about a full race inspired 135i. Bilstien PSS10's, H&R sways, Brembo or Stoptech BBK, catless dp's, full exhaust, spearco intercooler, LET stage 3 (making 378whp and 416wtrq @ 14.6 PSI), SSK, Hartge body kit (google if you haven't seen it, looks mean), maybe a CF hood/trunk and full vinyl race graphic overlay (hopefully along with some sponsorships) like this (but not exactly, I have some colorschemes in mind already).

It's not that I don't want to play with it, it's that I can't remember...not unless Candy is home to watch Chance. Sooooo...I'm stuck at home besides going to work mad early this morning (but I was lazy and its only a 30 sec drive so I took the GTI). I'll get around to drivin' it. Sometime....

You should totally do the 135! It wasn't a bad little car...no matter what, it'll have more powa than the current ride. Curious, why 135? why not just go a little bigger and grab a 335?

Well here is the thing. I can't do just a 335i. I like the sedans better than the coupes, and I can't not get an xdrive if its offered, just doesn't make sense not to. Then I'm spending $42k base plus the 335's you HAVE to have options in them or they look weird so then I'm at like $48k. Having a small 135 2 door (also lighter than the 3's) make sense cuz its cheaper, you don't need all the options in it and it takes most of the same performance parts as the 335's. I also like it a little better than the E92's looks wise, plus not everyone and their neighbors dog has one, its a little more unique to see one fully modded out than an e92.

It's also small enough for me to use as excuse to get a used Grand Cherokee for the winter months/hauling stuff and I won't lie, I liked having 2 cars.
