What time do u plan to run your car on the dyno?

I'll bring my car if you wanna have some fun runs after the track? I just don't want to pay to run when I don't have drag radials.

I know right. They told me they had great air flow. My IATs were up to 180, freaking ridiculous, so they added water to the intercooler which brought me back down to 110 as it should be.

what do you mean by retrofitting a ZSP steering wheel to a ZSP steering wheel? do yo mean you want to retrofit a non-paddle wheel to a paddle wheel?

Yeah, it feels good, but knowing 370+ on the other Dyno maybe more realistic. I'll let the community decide what my ponies really are. But I am glad I did it because it gets rid of the any Dyno War discussions. hahaha

I'll test it on the track and see how I do. I just may go next Wednesday and give a few test runs. Not too concerned with racing, just will be looking at my ET. For most people, that is the true test. If I can't dive 400+ then there is no point of having it..

Oh yeah, it was cool to see a 5.0 2012 with Exhaust, cold air and mild OTS Tune getting 385 on the DynoJet. HAHAHA

dropped off my car at dealer for the inspection before my CPO is expiring in 1.5 months. they gave me a loaner which i've never think of.... 2012 X5 35d with ALL options you can think! man...i have to say it, i will trade-in my rocket to this in a heartbeat! i don't care if that 35d can't do 0-60 in 4 sec or giving me a neck-breaking adrenaline, i felt in love with the X5. it is much more comfort and all the new gadgets ie: power liftgate, auto-shut doors, power tilt steering wheel...etc just sold to me.

and being a diesel, it does very good mileage. driving from elk grove back to natomas, the fuel gauge needle literally didn't even move. this is the only non-sport car i would trade-in without regret. wife always jokes around and tell me to sell my e90 but i said no, don't ever touch my douche mobile, but tonight, i told her if she says yes to the X5, i would trade it in =)

oh man... i hope this doesn't come true. i've spent numerous time and money to build my car in past 3 years to the point i love the way it is in all aspect. im sure i will miss her a lot if i really pull the trigger on an X5.

it's the white one with light tan/cream color interior with bamboo trim. im in love with this thing now!!!!! i strongly do not believe it is a loaner cuz it's so nice and very very loaded with everything. it doesn't not have the "Niello courtesy loaner" sticker on the window. i guess Bob is just doing me a favorite =)

no pic vince. it somehow has a more aggressive front bumper and a silver running board. so it looks a little different than other regular x5

I remember my first loaner, I was 22 with my 323i E46 and they gave me a Pontiac POS.

Bob said I had to be 25 or older to get a BMW loaner. ha-ha.

Bob did lived up to his reputation, my next loaner was a new 2007 328i. It only took me 4 more years to get mine. haha...
