There is a guy that did a group buy on this before where he drove from houston. He did it for $500 per car i believe. There are ppl in houston that do it for cheaper if you're willing to drive down there.

I wanted to do it last time, and would be in this time if he will be doing it on a weekend. There's no way I can get up at 5am to drive through morning rush hour to Grapevine at 7:30am or whenever he wanted us there. That's just crazy/impossible haha

Hey Mo im Definetly in. But see if you can get it for 300 or less. It seems like i've been spending to much dam money on this car. Water pump, spark plugs, Tires, coding. Not Cheap

I know you feel the same way.

My thoughts EXACTLY!

I will do it if I can drive through on a weekend

I just got rid of the 335i, so I'm glad I didn't waste my money on it The 135i I now have needs it bad though.

Hey guys! A little family dispute ended up with my dad punching the crap out of my door. Leaving a good sized ding. Anyone have recommendations on dent removal places near Plano?
Thanks! Hope to see y'all at next C&C

Good to know. I've been looking for E85 locally but haven't had much luck. The Krogers near me don't have gas stations

Does anyone else know of any other stations that have E85?

Does anyone by chance have access to one of those digital paint thickness testers?

Due to some shady body shop practices I have a feeling I may need one sometime in the next few weeks. If anyone has access to one, I can pay you to borrow it for an afternoon.

Hey everyone. I have a 2008 pre lci 328i with the ugly halogen headlights. I am wanting to upgrade them without spending a ton of money. Does anyone know if there are shops that sell these and install them? Any other suggestions you have as well would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for the help!
