this may be a stupid question but is it better when you have e93 and e85 mixed together? and if so, why?

Yes, higher octane rating. Won't do you much good if you aren't tuned though. I don't have an E85 specific tune but with my cobb stage 1 it got rid of my timing drops so I always top off with some.

If you got factory halogens, you have a lot of upgrade options. Factory xenon owners are stuck though, unless you want someone to crack them open and modify them. $$, inconvenient, and risky though.


Search for the depo lights.

So you guys ever hear about coffee and cars? Evidently it's a Saturday thing between BMW AUDI and VW owners. I've never heard of it until one of my friends told me about it. Just seeing if any of you have heard of it.

I've been trying to talk myself out of OSS for a while (why are they so damn expensive? If there was someplace local where I could take my car to have this done, I would do it. I just don't like the idea of mailing my lights to someone). I hate my ugly orange reflectors, though. Kind of wish I had halogens so I could better justify an upgrade.

It's the first Saturday of every month at 8am at Classic BMW in Plano. All makes and models are welcome but if you want to show your car you better get there early. I mean like an hour or two early.....it's been a cluster fuck lately.

Indeed! Even with the heat, lots of people are showing up these days.

When we used to go about 2 years ago, there were only about 500 cars. It has TRIPLED since!

I'll be there next Saturday.

Ok last offer, 41k or I'm trading the m3 in... if i get some interest tonight, I'll hold on trading it in. I'm basically selling it for what ever they are giving me for the trade + the tax savings that i'm getting. look back on page 111 for pics.

Not here. Usually just cops trying to laser me. Or their KA band. Either way this sun is melting my V1.

Thanks! Yes, I was planning on going to C&C this weekend... not sure if it will be in the main area or in the remote parking area.. Depends on what time we get home Friday night and when I wake up Saturday morning I guess....
