No worries, I'm just a few minutes away. What about promoting ahead of time? Get the motivation going? We got a few new sactown enthusiast, I'm sure we can get a crowd. Hwy1 drive? From sac to Monterey?

As for Tapioca, I'm gonna head out soon. At Oshima drinking a beer. I'll drive by again before I head out.

Sup everyone. Been a lurker for awhile, thought I'd join in and make some friends.

I'm out in South Sac and own a white e92 328i, completely untouched. Plan on modding once I have some cash. Right now, I need new tires and am debating whether I should buy tires or see if I can get a good deal on VMR V710 or AG 310.

And sorry I missed out on the Tapioca party...joined a day too late.

Quick question for the locals:

I need to take my 07 335i for the injector/hpfp recall. Car is misfiring and spitting white smoke.

I have mods and wondered if Sac BMW or Modesto BMW will do the recall with FBO. I can remove JB4 and intake but really didnt want to do the FMIC or Downpipes.

Any first hand experience?

I don't have any first hand experience, but I have talked to dealers. Downpipes are a big no-no. I'm my opinion, do what you can to put back to stock, especially for recalls. I am going to do walnut shell blasting and putting my stock intake back in from DCI. Just give them no reason to deny your recall. You have FBO, so a lot to put back, I would say DP, JB at a min. FMIC I think you are good, we have some people on here that take it in to dealers with FMIC and no hassle. Do you have stock charge pipe and BOV?

i would at least take out JB and DP. that's the biggest NO-NO in Sac's dealer. they should be ok with FMIC but tune and DP is the things they do not want to see. remember being a friend with the SA is a big plus, as long as you approach to them friendly, most of the SA won't act like an A-hole =)

Thanks guys. That was my line of thinking too. It may be a hassle to it is not worth me getting denied for service and having to pay out of pocket. I am just going to have to pull everything off. I may leave the intercooler on but the DPs, intake and charger pipe and catch can are coming off. Arrghh!

Walnut Shell Blasting

so here is mine. Nasty stuff... @ 46,600 miles.

I spoke to my SA, and he did say he will look into a group rate. I will pick up my car later today and then discuss with him if he has made any progress on that.

Hwy 1 Cruz

Hey,

I have been meaning to take a cruse down High Way 1. I have never scheduled a cruse day, but for starters who will be in??

got some of this online:

http://gocalifornia.about.com/cs/big...highwayone.htm


since we are from the Valley, I was thinking either drive to Half Moon Bay then up to Golden Gate or vise versa? Does it makes sense to start farther from home and work your way back on Hwy 1? anyway, who is down?

I guess no takers? I'm in...although it'll have to be after the 4th of July week for me.

See comment below.

As for the Cruz, sounds like there is three of us, and I may get a buddy of mine with an E93. So ill begin to map out a path with stops, and then we can pick a nice sat. Or sun. I am sure Eric will be in????

I have never done a bbk, but take a look on the DIY guide, I am sure there is one. May help you out to do it yourself, save you some $$.
