It's also cool to see a 335 being tracked; it would be interesting to see how much the performance power kit would cool your car down? I think an aftermarket OC is probably next on the agenda?

You should look into joining the BMWCCA. The local chapter here does all sorts of driving events including a few trips to Brainerd over the summer. All the events include instructors too. Tons of fun!

I really like those V701s that Kevin put on my car but I was looking through my old pictures. I feel like I'm going to regret switching..... My summer wheels are M3 CSL reps.



EDIT: Looking through our conversations here, I think we need to start a Minnesota Chat Thread.

Good point Martin, these threads are really taking off! I'll see if we can get a "sticky" thread like the Chicago and WI guys have

Good point, it's pretty quiet over there! Did you ever get some window stickers made up like the mnaudi guys have? After seeing one on the R8 last weekend I'm starting to notice them on lots of Audis!

They do have the factory spilt armrest on sale for 245 now though - tempting but I'm not feeling 245 on an armrest (even though it's sweet and it's a stellar deal). I just want that damn switch!

Here's the e-mail I got from Tischer:

=====================
Hi Nick,

Unfortunately the euro headlight switches are no longer available for US BMW dealerships to order from BMW. You'll need to check ebay, or some of the aftermarket companies.

Check with ECS tuning as I think they import them....

We actually do have the Genuine European BMW headlight switches available below... This switch enables operation of the rear fog lamps.

Just ordered... I've been meaning to check you guys out - thanks for making it easy. Just think, this one post just netted 132.08USD for what - 1 minute of your time? Not bad!
