If you do use him please post an update of how they turned out. My wheel isn't too bad (just one wheel that has a few scrapes on the face), but I have been putting it off too long and I would love to here how you make out.
i had gouges out of mine bought the set used and abused. Had to get within an inch to see it wasn't perfect.

heres pics from before don't have any after close ups but they were great!

I talked to JM yesterday and I'm going to call him up after the 4th to set something up! It was funny because when I called him he was up at Towne doing some mini/BMW rims funny coincidence!

Any Buffalo guys know where I can get a secondary cat delete done?
I took it to Muffler Man on Delaware in Kenmore, and told them I thought the cats were resonators since they weren't monitored with o2 sensors, and they guy was way too experienced to buy it.

Thanks-

You're going to kick yourself in the rear end repeatedly after getting that installed wondering why the heck you didn't do it sooner!

If it doesn't throw a code most places won't even notice, however if there is a code, or your readyness codes aren't all set (like if you have the procede auto CAN cleare on) then you won't pass.

That's what I have heard! I was planning on getting mine done soon so maybe I'll have to look in Roch! I already know of a great place in Toronto but its a little far! Look up Auto Links group buy in Canada section of regional forums! Great place that is highly reviewed!

How are you liking the PE, Hasek9339? I've had mine for almost 3 years, I still drive around with both driver side windows down/sunroof open to hear it.


Also- any Buffalo people in the elmwood area? I always see the same couple e90, e92 and e60s, including an e60 M5 on Forest

My cousin just got a sweet e28- 1987 525. Black/tan int, 5 speed. It's always great to drive an old one, and theres a suprising amount of "dna" you can feel between the old and new.

Any of you guys keeping the thought of a real detail on the radar at all for the summer?


Just asking because the season is furious and I want to get a reasonable forecast if people are interested. Hasek I think can attest to quality and how long the condition holds with proper care following.



Sidenote: I always see the E90 "ILLRACEU" plate at walker plaza - is he in this thread?

Eye candy for you guys - Post factory refinement(corrective polishing to eliminate swirls and heavy compounding to clean up factory sanding marks in various places, standard on all AM)
