Speaking of upcoming meets, will there be a Midwest meet like last year? Would be great if there was another one!

dunno if there will be one... TimmayFest kinda took top honors last year (200 cars) so that might end up being the one. I wish I had enough time to organize one myself but I'm getting married this summer and planning the wedding mostly by myself.

Just an FYI reading this thread. Everyone has moved over to mnbmw.com (sponsored by Imola Motorsports).

http://www.mnbmw.com

Just sending on the message; I'd prefer to be on a vBulletin message board but I'll just follow the crowd on this one.

So c'mon over and join in! We had a great meet at Imola last weekend which included non-E9x chassis cars and it was great!

Take care,

Nick

Anyway, I'm having difficulty warming up to the minor nuances of mnbmw.com; it's not vBulletin software so it's kinda, I don't know, weird. I guess I have to just get used to it but I like it better here

Nick
I'm in the same boat as you. I'm not a fan of the mnbmw interface.

I'd be interested for sure. It's been too long since I went on a decent road trip. Keep us posted if you Chicago yokes are putting together a caravan.

I have 19in VB3s as my summers. $1000 seems fair. Are they 18 or 19in? What made you switch to a bmw from a 350z?

My mod recommendations: *Arranged by favorites*
1. BMS Powerbox
-Basically a little box that has preset throttle mappings that you hook up to ecu. Gets rid of the dead pedal.
2. Intake -I have a Injen Short Ram-
3. Wheels -I have 19in staggered VB3-
4. Lowering Suspension (Eibach / H&R / KW) -I have KW V3-
5. Exhaust -I did a muffler delete-
6. Tint (50% is legal limit, I suggest Tint Pros to tint your car)

Hope that helps!

Anvar,

Smelly heater!??!?!

Seeking advice or anybody that has had similar problem...

Bought a CPO 2008 335xi from Motorwerks mid December. The last few weeks it smells like SHIT inside when I have the heater on, particularly with the floor vents on. I had them (for free) clean the evaporator and "fog" the inside .... didn't help one tiny bit. In the little research I've done I think there is mold/mildew somewhere in the AC coils or something, or the evaporator drain is plugged/frozen. All I know is it is very annoying, disgusting, embarrassing, etc.

Any thoughts? Advice?

Happened to me too, it was only after the car sat for a day or two without me driving it. I always thought it was the floor mats because I didn't have all weathers and water sometimes froze on them.

Not the floormats. They are rubber. I also took them out and ran floor heater on full heat/full fan to just in case it was the carpet. Not it. Thanks though.

Oh man that would bother me like crazy!!! I can't imagine having a passenger or 'important' person in the car with it smelling bad.

Honestly, that is one of the things I would go and complain about. You bought it CPO, which means they tacked on roughly $3-$5000 onto the price for THEIR LABOR and parts that went into bringing the car back to like-new condition. Obviously it's not in like-new condition. You're not out-of-line or being a whiney complainer for wanting your car to NOT smell bad.

It has to be something inside the core if they replaced the cabin filter..which they routinely replace at maintenance intervals. So yeah, go in there screamin like Al Sharpton!
