If you go to autozone i believe they will lend you a pipe cutter, or go buy a sawzall. Stop and get a floor jack and some jackstands. You'll pay about the same to get the floor jack and stands that you would pay for the install. Plus you get to keep and have them around.

thats assuming you have a socket set, which if you dont get one of those too. They are 50% off at sears i believe.

Get the burger n52 tune to free up even more ponies.

And the BMW n52 euro intake

I know most places were charging 335 owners between 100-180 to install the PE and honestly I dont trust shops. Harbor fright has a great floor jack for like 60 bucks and its low profile to easy fit under our cars. I have one works great

I would let the exhaust break in first before you remove the cats, its going to get louder after driving it for awhile. Maybe hasek can chime in and confirm

I got the simota v2 intake already, and I think I will be going with AA tune.
Maybe I should really install it myself but I don't want to mess up anything since its a brand new unit
I installed the intake myself and I managed to drop two screws in the engine bay and scratch the CF surface, and I think I even cracked it a bit...

You cant mess it up. You really have to try. Hell get a set of ramps from walmart. back the car up on them. block the front wheels. Measure where you have to cut and just do it. If you were local ide bring some beer and make a night of it. Dont worry i dropped all three screws for my engine cover and said fuck it. next trip to the dealer they replaced them all.

They are checking on prices and will get back to me in the morning. Shipping may kill the deal we shall see

You can click into my garage to check out some pics of my car, but those were taken when I first got my car and got tints.

It's one of the two deep green e90s in this area that I know of. So I should be easily spotted.

There are not much modded bimmer around here at Rochester. But the city is so small that you can spot modded ones relatively easy

In regard to the performance exhaust, I am def interested in hearing that sometime with the downpipes. My car is completely catless as it is, so that should net the same sound.

A good 3-6" of snow on the ground and some winter rubber on my 335 is one of my favorite times out on the road. I actually get in my car to drive around, with no particular destination in mind. Some good tunes on the radio, some beverages and a bag of pretzels and I can be out all night. LOL
