As Frank mentioned, we'll set it for Saturday July 1 around 10:00??
Are we still having a BBQ or should we go a different direction wrt food&beverages...too early for beer?

As Frank's request, please PM your RSVP to him so that he can furnish you with his address and other relevant details.

Also please allow for adequate tools to expedite install process...

Is there any way it could be a little later... so I don't have to leave at like 6:30. Or maybe I could just come a later when you guys have already gotten a couple cars done.

Donny, it's never too early for beer/drinks! It's always noon somewhere in the world.

No... mds sent me install directions... it includes a certain compnent that keeps the unit cool to avoid overheating... I dont want to spill the beans, but it sounds like a quality product... (thats all I can say at this point)

I can't believe the Lux kits have their own cooling system, even the other high-price kits like Brex and PIAA doesn;t...that is pretty cool

You should have! That's the one thing I really wanted in my car. It's the only reason I had to order it. It's slow at times, but I love it. The only thing I regret is not getting sports package. I'll trade you cars.

Well, here was my list of must haves...

- sports
- premium
- xenons
- heated seats

The ones I was contemplating:

- idrive (should have gotten)
- Logic 7 (glad I didnt pay extra for it)




All in all, I should have just waited 2 months, saved up a few more bucks, and ordered a 330i similarly equipped to my current car with nav...




Oh well... theres that 335i sedan around the corner... might start looking more seriously into that...
