I never just start and drive off..always let it warm a bit..~ 5 mins..then when i drive I never get on the boost until the oil needle has moved..this car doesnt make full power until its hot anyways..

What did you do to/for your E9X today?

I searched and saw nothing related to this on E90post, Coming from E46 side I think its fun to see what everyone is working on.

I did some nice driving myself today, Yesterday I cleaned the MAF sensor on E90 though.

Cleaned my exhaust pipes, replaced my old peeling sport steering wheel trim with an M trim and went on some nice drives. We had a great day!

Where did you get that trim from? I have that peeling problem on mine too, I was thinking DiNoc 3m carbon fiber wrap but I havent made up my mind on that.

I drove around for almost an hour out of my way tonight to burn off the last of what I think was a tank of bad gas. On the way home from filling up with fresh 93 octane + a bottle of octane booster I had a little fun and broke the rear tires loose a few times...

Car is now sleeping in the garage in preparation for a few 3rd gear pull logs tomorrow morning, possibly with the GoPro.

Replaced stock fogs with GP Thunder 8500k's. Attempted to install Weisslicht LED turn signals but failed after several hours of trying, and ended up leaving the derpy looking amber stock bulbs in there
