(It'll most likely be Me being Jay's best man when he marries Ben out in Massachusetts for the detailing perks)

FUCK, missed all the chatting but ive come back wth more reviews on the new progman. less exhaust noise from a cold start. my shit use to rumble the windows near my house and i could hear it inside. now it sounds a lil deeper than stock (since i have the aftermarket exhaust) definitely hear the turbos spool up more and theres less drone in the cabin around 2-3500 rpms.

also the only time your really hear the exhaust note is when you hammer on it. still have to get use to the jerky gas pedal, this thing just wants to go balls out right away instead of easing out of a stop. but im sure its the tranny adapting to me again. when normal cruising on streets and you need to pass the power is right there waiting for you. but if you mash it to pass then it kickdowns then pulls.

at first i thought it was lag but then i realized its the tranny shifting down thats taking all the time. once it finds the gear its off and running. flashng the ecu removes your prior settings too like, radio station, logic7 equalizer, and the other customizable features.

i think each person could order it themselves. That way you don't have to rely on anyone else. I may do mine ahead of time. Just so i have a better idea of how to disassemble the interior and can learn some tricks

Dropped the car off this morning. Got a 2009 528i for a loaner, not a bad car, but took me a minute to figure out how the hell to put it into park.
