PROcede has been on for about a year, no issues whatsoever. My Aquamist meth can be controlled though my flow guage. There is an on/off button that will power the system, and can be done while driving. Look at the link I posted above, I mounted it in my ashtray for easy access and visibility (plus I can still close the lid to hide it )

I second Will's comments. I was originally attracted to the jb3 due to the pricing. Ultimately, I switched because of the better feature set. Now, the gap has shrunk somewhat but Vishnu continues to implement new technologies all the time. Plus, it did feel a bit smoother. I also recently considered Cobb mainly due to the quick installation. But, they are new to the game. That means no meth support yet and a few snags with early 07 models (like mine). So it's Vishnu for me.

Btw, I'd recommend buying used. Seems you can get an unlocked one for $5-600.

Will, it's going to take me some time. Have lots on my plate and I have yet to freaking install all my shtuff as is. Talk about frustrating!

hey Dan, will this solve your answer?

currently the 07 problem seems to have a fix. at least on mine, it works like a charm so far =)

Eric, someday I may switch tunes. For now, Cobb still needs more time. Procede is probably a year ahead of Cobb IMO. Besides, although nothing has come out yet, it's possible vishnu may improve on the hpfp. If so, that'll be another reason for me to stick with them.

Should I pull the trigger on a M3 Rep front bumper? I could use the bigger lower grille for more airflow as I am more into performance than looks. I plan on getting M-sport sides and rear eventually to even it out. Any good shops near Roseville?

i heard Bertolucci's is top notch for our area (sacramento). I may have my m-tech rear bumper painted by them if i dont get too lazy to drive it up to sac.
otherwise i will be going to the nearest AAA aproved shop near modesto as my 335i is currently parked there.

That's where I had mine fixed, there are a few minor issues they need to address but they said wait about 30 days until everything is cured and they'll correct the other issues.

I have known Stu (the Krum half) at Schatz & Krum for nearly 18 years. We built one hell of a '72 2002 years ago, and he has been the only one to work on my out-of-warranty Bimmers since. He is top notch on his knowledge and skills, and runs a great honest shop. You can't go wrong here.

Honk/wave if you see me about:
Have an '08 E92 335XI myself same color but with the black interior. Gorgeous colored car! I noticed you got 35% tint from A pillar back. Did you have someone local (Sac, Roseville, Folsom) do it? I was looking at Genesis to do mine.

Do you ever get any flack from the cops? How dark does it look from the outside on a normal sunny day? I know mine will look darker with my interior being black. So I may need to go a shade lighter. Don't know yet.

Any info helps. Thanks.

Well it's a real small town named Newman. Prolly never heard of it, it is about 20 minutes from Modesto. But I actually live in Sacramento now, just that I park my 335i in Newman.

My name is Angel, and for sure I would be down to meet up sometime. What are you going to be doing in Modesto?
