yes, 1 thing at a time. Mtech Bumper w/ CF diffuser next spring. haha...


let me run this by you....


I got waste gate rattle like a mofo... sounds just like this:
http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=816524




I have to SMOG, so going to uninstall my tune, run only premium octane, put OEM intake back on and CP w/ DV. Leaving FMIC on. Run the car for at least a week as stock, before SMOG.

So since I have to do this, I was going to take it in for a check up on the turbo's. From what I can tell, its a sign of going bad/out. Since I am still under CPO and way under the Turbo Warranty, I feel I should have no hassle. What do you think?

EDIT:

saw you replied on that thread.

nah, they will only put in an order for new wastegates. unless your exhaust is smoking and burning oil, that's another story. mine was like that before and it's only wastegates. honestly the stock turbos are good since we are only doing mild tune. they actually last pretty long unless you abuse them A LOT!

sweet thanks. For the time and effort replacing the WG's they could just as easy put in new Turbo's.

What do you do for work that you can't reach a phone during those times?

I must have been confused because you said you cant reach them. I took it as you can't call them during those times to get info. So I was thinking that you have a job where you don't have access to a phone for personal use.

Do any of you guys have access to CarFax reports or AutoCheck by Experian? I was looking into selling my old car and was trying to get a hold of the 20 service records that are displayed.

Any help would be appreciated.

Let me know your quote, I got a flat rate. I would be worried a price per hour, they can easily add another hour on there. For example, today I dropped of the Bumper and CF lip, we did a fit test and the CF lip was a not the best mold, thus it's gonna take a little more modification to make it look good and fit good. I am not saying he won't add any more labor to it, but he didn't say the price changed. Thus leads me to believe he is still gonna honor the flat rate.

he is also going to delete the Fog Lights and cut to fit the M3 Ducts. Thanks to Eric, was a good decision.

I'm planning to head to TNT this weekend probably, I haven't called to follow up on my quote, they must be pretty busy. Either way I might not get the trunk since Seibon has a 10 week back order and I'm trying to get everything done before I go on vacation at the end of June.
