Cool

I used to have an Injen cold air intake a long time ago on my Nissan Silvia and I liked it.
I don't know the quality of it these days as I am using BMS DCI but just like every after market intake out there you ought to wash/oil twice a year (late Spring and late Fall).

I just wanted to thank BDMbimmer (Rob) for coding my car a couple of days ago!!! He did a great job and he is also a really nice guy. I recommend him to anybody who would like to get their car coded, and who would like to encourage our regional member from the forum!!!
Thanks Rob!!!

I am thinking about that Broadway Grill in Barrhaven.....
Lunch hour on Saturday, that place was packed with hotties.....(and yuppies unfortunately).
The trick is that we have to come earlier around 11:00. I am thinking about July 23, 2011.

Hope you guys have a good meet up. Also driving a BMW and negative connotation towards yuppies seems a bit pot-kettle-black.

Just noted the 23rd part.
If I'm not in Cairo that weekend I'll see if I can meet up, but the time clashes with my sons swim lessons.

I need a good excuse for a good car cleaning.

Hey nsx2000x:
There is a good Tex Mex restaurant in Dallas called Ojeda.
4617 Maple Avenue, Dallas - (214) 528-8383
Its chilli relleno is the best in DFW area. You should try....

================================================== ====
The meet and greet day/time is flexible so is the place. If you have other suggestions, please chime in so the Ottawa quorum will decide.

The meet location sounds intriguing.
Swim lesson is 11:30-12:00. So perhaps I can grab a drink at the end of lunch.

DFW: everyone says I should check out Bone Daddies tonight.

Last night we went to Boi Na Braza

Bone Dady's in Grapevine, TX (by the airport) is one of the best BBQs around.
I usually go to the one in Spring Valley Rd, in Richardson, TX.
When I am in DFW, I usually venture Tex-Mex restaurants and Deep Ellum area for live bands, etc.

Anyone know where the Otto's/Elite send their cars for paint work? Someone bumped my car and left a some scratches on the bumper, and I was gonna try fixing it myself before paying a pro. I read elsewhere that the paint shops sell the touchup paint for cheaper than the dealers.
I'll post some pics when there's light out in case anyone has some advice. I should note I have no experience painting

What colour do you have? Maybe someone on here already has the marking touch up paint.

For the record I have a bottle of Jerez Black (M3

Montego Blue. I think I've seen one or 2 others around Ottawa, didn't figure anyone would have any touchup kicking around.

Here's the major scratch:




Different view with some minor scapes:




And the 2nd round little scrape (it's in the lower half, that upper white is just the flash reflecting):

By looking at the photos, you need to sand it before doing any painting.

The cheaper but more extensive work (not recommended):

The alternative to the dealer yet worry free is around $500 (compared to $800 the dealer smiley price):
