No cable, but internet is alive & well? Did you see the photoshoot I posted from last weekend? They turned out pretty decent.

Tony,

You take SICK pictures man, SICK. I wish I had that skill, I think I'm too A.D.D.

I wouldn't even let my car be in with those, I'd like to think of mine as a sleeper.

Are those LC Dyna's on the AW E92? My favorite rims, those are what I would get, but I don't want to mess with the suspension, etc. Bleh.

I appreciate it man ......... I still have alot to learn though. Yeah, Brian (2008_BMW_335i) owns the AW w/ the Dynas. We finally met him last weekend & yeah ........ his car is VERY clean. He just purchased some coilovers yesterday so he'll be scraping before too long.

Your car would fit right in man ........... none of our cars are perfect! LOL, did I mention I'm going to be sanding my hood down over the weekend? Long story, but it really needs a repaint. M3 side skirts as well ........

Repainting the hood??? Rock chips or what? I managed to get pretty lucky on the drive up here, didn't hear any or see any big ones (so congested phew).

Isn't Terrance doing the side skirts too?

You need anything picked up from STETT? They are in the town next to the one my folks live in. I hope they are open tomorrow, might have to pick up some goodies.

Oh yeah, your car is looking so very, very niiice. I don't remember Juan having those rims last time, I thought I saw him post a thread but didn't put to the two together.

The color of the hood is completely off ......... a couple of dents & a rise that need to be taken care of. I'm too much of a perfectionist to let it go so ........... once I receive my M3 rockers I'll be headed to a paiint shop.

Terrance has his rockers. Not sure if he painted them or installed them yet though. I don't know of anything from Stett I would want ......... you're the one that should be looking though!

Jeez. You are a perfectionist.

I was talking to Stett about the OCC they have been working on, looks like they don't have it completed yet, that's a bummer, really the only thing I would probably "need."

I'm happy with the intake, intercooler, and don't really think I need a BOV.

Any thoughts on getting a bov? I know people keep talking about the charge pipe, but I don't think it's going to give any performance gains. Too bad they don't have downpipes!

You have DP's? I was looking at the catted AR pipes.. thoughts..?

I went with the catted AR Design pipes & am very happy with every aspect. The only other pipes I would say to look at would be the Macht Schnell as they are also 3" , but at a lesser price. They look great & have gotten great reviews!

I had Terrance install the Riss Racing DVs I received from Matt & I am REALLY surprised at how much I was missing in the performance before install. The BOV is going to get too much of the wrong attention from the dealer ............ whereas the DVs not so much. This has been my own personal experieence amongst different techs & dealerships.

By the way, without a tune (elevated boost) I'm not sure you'd really benefit much with the BOV or DVs.

Looks like we have a good bit going. Its gonna be Friday December the 4th. I would like to get there early enough so we can pick a spot and park together. So if one of goes and run we can save his spot. I haven't installed my skirts yet gonna take it tomorrow to get a small crack fixed then paint them. Also +1 with what Tony said a BOV and DV upgrade is useless unless you turn up the boost past what the jb+ will do.
