Anybody know of a good place to get down pipes installed in or around Columbus? IPS wants to charge me $150 more than what they did before.

New E90 in Cinci Area! (well old e90, but its new to me!)

I live just north of Cinci (West Chester). I've always been a "hater" of BMWs in all honesty, but after meeting some of the guys that raced them with me I came around and now I own one myself.

I race a Corvette and I have a few other cars in my portfolio, but I bought a 330i a few weeks ago and so far my wife and I have both pretty much fallen in love with it with an exception of a few quirks. In fact we are already thinking about upgrading it to a used M3 or a new 335 i xDrive with the options we want. I was originally test driving 5 series, but oddly I couldnt fit very well (I'm 6'9") because the center console bulged too far out and the steering wheel was so big there was no place for my knee. I fit perfectly in the 3 series though!

I read through this and see there are some other people in the area. I've been going to Lofinos and Thursday Night Lights for a few years in other cars, but I'll probably bring the e90 at some point. I also regularly attend and compete in other car shows and with the SCCA. The car is an M Sport and I can't believe how fun of a car to drive it is- really compares to my older Mercedes SLK and zips around town better than some of my sports cars I've owned while at the same time having all the luxury goodness you could want.

Sorry for the long intro!

SOUTHEAST MICHIGAN PEOPLE:

Anyone want to come by Ann Arbor and help work on my car with me?
My friends bailed and I could use the extra help. I'll be doing quite a few things.
I am going to be in Ann Arbor because my sponsor is working on my headlights.
I'll be there around 6 PM.

Hey welcome!! I'm sure you have heard that TNL has moved to Kilkare and is now FNL...suckss bc that's just too far from Cincy.

I used to have a tiburon that I raced AutoX and did multiple track days at Putnam and Mid-O. Fun car that I used to beat up on the bmws and Porsche drivers at the track days lol I'm too scared to track my 335 tho lol shit is expensive on this thing. My dad is trying yo convince me to do a track day with him this summer lol

Totally forgot to mention on here that Columbus cars and coffee is back in session. We are moved now towards the back of the lot mainly because of such a large showing. Week and a half ago when I went there were at least 60+ cars that showed and that was with cold weather. Looking forward to seeing what happens when it warms up!

Good afternoon Ohio BMW owners! I am from Dayton and want to join the action. I have not been to any cruise ins or car club things as a BMW owner yet. Kil-Kare is right in my area though! But its not open yet this year (under new ownership, and a new paved track!) and last year I did not run into any Euro owners except my buddies MkV GTI. Good to meet you all!

Anyone know of a good shop, or anyone want to help me for some beer and cash, install a new set of kw v1s?

I did hear about the move to Kilkare, but I didn't not know it moved to Fridays. That will probably be a deal breaker for me- I'll go up a few times, but not what I plan on spending EVERY Friday doing... haha.

Good ol' Tibby's! haha. I'll let you know next time we do a casual track day. We are full next week, but don't be scared to track yoru 335... just don't do anything stupid! haha. What's the point of owning a car if your too afraid to drive it like it was built to be driven? I'll keep my eyes out for you though!

Now that it looks like TNL is out, I'll have nothing else to do on Thursdays! haha. I'll swing by. I know there are a few e90 owners at Cars and Coffee in fairfield every saturday morning, but I haven't gotten out there yet, so I'll track you down at The Root Beer Stand.
