Litos - They do. I'm a friend of Dave at Secret Services and I can vouch for these guys they are among the elite in Houston when it comes to performance tuning (especially turbo cars).

In fact, once I get all my boltons installed I will be going with the COBB AP route and will eventually have it tuned at SSA (once they become a Cobb ProTuner)

Just sayin. I enjoyed the meet... except for the damn rain!

I'm one of the 'kids' on the forum, but I don't ask for my parents money for anything. My parents bought me my first car for $3k and that's it. I drove it for a year and a half. Then I sold that, and bought myself a 'better' car, modded it, drove it a little more. Then purchased a beater, so I wouldn't have to daily my other car and worry about it being stolen. Right now, I'm trying to sell my modded car and drive my beater until it dies, and get a 335i or M3 depending on how much I have once my beater dies. Hell, I might settle for a cayenne gts. I'm in no rush. (:

But yeah, I don't have a bmw. I just lurk this forum cause I love them so much, lol.

For performance tuning I trust ILR, he's tuned my si. It just sucks he does mainly imports. Fastlane does domestics, but Jason (st00pid) tunes them, and he's a badass turbo guy. There's more shops out there that tune cars, it's just I trust Huy or Jason.

For BMW/MB there's a guy named Jerry from Eurocharged. He tuned my ex bf's E55.

I'm pretty sure Jason (st00pid) is the tuner at SSA right?

No, Jason no longer tunes cars..well last time I saw him was at Fastlane. But he tunes houses now. Hahah.

The tuner at SSA I believe is like "burgermass"?

Pretty good turnout at C&C...I showed up about 9:30 and there was still plenty to see. I just missed seeing the idiot wreck his GTO but I got a good laugh at him as I was leaving. I hope to see C&C take place here again in the future

Chris is the head tuner at SSA. A different Chris than the owner.

Once I'm back to Houston, afte college, I will have to go to the C&C at Vintage Park epsecially since I live 5min from there. Also at C&C dallas, a ferrari almost ran over a little kid. If you want to see idoits with more power than they can handle, just youtube cars and coffee crashes. I swear most of the cars have higher HP#s per cylender than the driver's IQ.

Is SS seeing more 335i's? I think my car may have been the first 335i they had there about a year ago. At that time, they were advertising to draw more in.

Yeah, they're trying to move into the 335 market.

Only thing is that most of you Houston 335s have JB3/4s for some reason.
