My JB4 is in the mail...ordered it yesterday with my DCI's from n54tuning...

It's a money pit to have 2 cars to mod so I gotta start slow with this one...

Taking my SRT8 to Garland on Feb 12th for a DiabloSport tune...I wouldn't mind taking a shot at that 335 ^^^

I got the JB4 as part of the alpha testing group in December. It has a lot of really cool features and the best tech support you could want. I ran the JB3 before that. IMO, the JB3/JB4 is easy to install and uninstall after you've done it once. It takes about 45 minutes to do it the first time. "Ease of install" shouldn't be a determinative criterion when both kits are easy to install and the install only happens once (or once a year after you go in for service).

Houston feels dead with respect to both the N54/N55 community and the broader car enthusiast community. I'd love to get together for some runs some time. I rarely find any action in this damn town. Obviously, I'm into the power and racing side of things. I really couldn't give a sh!t about some "angel eyes," the exact description of my car's exterior or interior color, or a photo op. Platform's been out 5 years, cars are everywhere you look, and it's not a freakin' Ferrari. Anyway, PM me or post if you'd like to meet for a run. I am looking for an oasis in this desert.
where you live???? there is a lot of run by I-10

I ain't a noob to forums by any stretch of the imagination but the sig just doesn't want to display...

think I spotted BillLee on 59S exiting to Bellaire around 5:30pm today, or at least another nice lowered AW E90 with wheels, yellow fogs and blacklines...

I passed by in my Tundra

I've been getting mix answers from people I've asked, but is having white turn signals on my 335i legal since theres no yellow on the actual headlight? I even checked the texas laws and it says I can for the fronts but I could be reading it wrong.

5. Inspect for and reject if:
g. Signal shows any color other than white or amber to the front, or signal shows any color other than red or amber to the rear.

should be ok

Today, while driving to work, I received this nice little present



Now when I drive, all I see is that damn crack(since it's directly in my view).

Anyone know any places that won't rape me on replacing it? It's bigger than a quarter so I don't think its repairable. Also, my deductible is $1000 so it's not helping much

What side of Pearland do you live on? I live in Friendswood but frequently take the back way on 35 to get to the freeways due to the cops in my town that have nothing better to do then to pull people over for anything...

Haha, you have that nice straight shot from beltway to 45. It's that 518/288 traffic to Pearland Town Center that is a BIA!

Maybe we'll cross paths one day .

yeah, i work in westchase so when i come home, i take BW all the way around to 288.

go north on 288 for a mile and then exit W. Orem.

if you see a bone stock looking black 335 with blacked out badges, that's me. if you see a silver steel SRT8 with 22" Torque Thurst II's and an exhaust that sounds like babies burning in hell, that's my wife HAHA !!!!

i can vouch for them. if you dont mind used tires they have the OEM runcraps for our cars for about half what you'd pay for them brand new with about 80% tread. I bought some rears from them and have 0 problems. good guys with reasonable rates.
