Hi there! Install the PROcede yet? I forget to mention, mine was setup for the Upgraded Turbo map, so those are the current settings. You will want to either update to the latest firmware or change to the Stage I,II,III maps.

Oh, you might want to adjust the tire pressure. I had mine kinda on the high side. I would let it out so it's 32-34 cold / 36-38 warm. Go even lower if you want more grip.

I have been looking for a good spot myself. I was thinking the CalStrs and Natomas East Buildings. My company built them both and thinking it would be the best two buildings in Sac. to have as a background.

Know of a good spot to get the bridge in the background??


Oh yeah, I went with the PSS as well; 265/30-19 and 235/35-19. I must say it definitely feels like the car is smoother compared to the Run Flats 18".

I haven't found an exact spot yet. I need to drive around the area a bit to snoop out locations. But I like the idea of the bridge in the background. I think there might be some open lots on the West-Sac side which might offer better options for the bridge. I was also thinking the cobblestone streets and western-buildings architecture of old Sac, the railroad yards, or something ultra modern like your 2 buildings.

Sounds like Cobb will fit your needs since you don't plan on heavily modifying the car.

Who wants to help me out in installing some coilovers. If I pull the trigger I should have these on the 26th. Any takers? Or a deep DIY guide would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

I have not done this yet, but you may find some DIY on here: I didn't see one for coilovers specifically but I think the process is the same.

scroll down to Suspension.

Are you local (ie Sac)? I had my springs and shocks replaced for $350 including alignment at a great shop called Radial Tire on Cottage Way. Many members on here will attest to the reputation of that shop. I replaced shocks on a Mustang GT years ago, and I swore it was something I'd never do again.

Cobb is def my next mod....hopefully next month. Btw, I changed the PSI on the tires to 32/34...noticed an improvement, especially with the rears. Felt more in touch with the road, although I only drove a few miles. I'll just need to get used to the new feel.

yea, if you plan not to touch DP.. i'll say COBB is the best bet to go. due to emission and warranty issue, i do not touch my DP and the mods i have is a BMS drop-in, bmw PE, ETS FMIC and COBB, running their new S1+ FMIC map. im peaking out at 15.7psi all day! those power is plenty enough for street usage and able to make you smile =)

btw guys, here this deal is for local Sac fellows only.



this M5 style bumper from ConstructAuto http://www.constructauto.com/gfx/pro...per/index.html will be all yours if you are willing to go to my bodyshop and pick it up. you can see the bottom has been crack, and i did not want to spend time to fix it, i went to another route for my new front makeover. there's another crack right in the middle of the bottom part which picture didn't show.

yes, as long as you are willing to fix it and put it on your e90, it is free. i just don't want someone end up getting it, fix it and flip for cash, know what i mean? im just trying to contribute to the community and don't want anyone take advantage of this deal.

For some reason I can't figure out, how to create a Garage List?

Can anyone show me how?

On the top menu bar, you should see "BMW GARAGE". Clicking on that link will take you to a new page where you can add vehicles and view your garage. Once you have configured a vehicle, a link will pop up under your name. GL.

Hey, did you ever get your springs installed at that shop? How did they do? Getting my wheels balanced and aligned today. I'm consistently amazed at their prices.
