Anybody in Miami with Proceed installed?

I'm in Coral Gables and would love a ride in one as I am considering placing an order.

No real need to; just order it and install it in your car...you'll be amazed what an extra 60WHP and 90-100 lb.-ft RWTQ will do to your 335i. You'll be driving a whole new BEAST with a huge grin glued to your face!

Got your Procede yet? My car I ordered for June is now unknown. Maybe July or who knows when. That really sucks. Apparently BMW is out of Turbos demand is way up and they don't have production capacity. Hmmm, the wait the wait!!! My Autobahn Procede influenced storming dream is looking threatened!

According to Shiv, it should be here tomorrow, and if so, I should have it in (and the XEDE out) by Wed. or Thurs.!

It's interesting that you heard that BMW is having some sort of turbo shortage; I find that hard to believe, especially since not only are these twin turbos used for the 335i, but this N54 engine is also going into the new '08 535i as well. Well, if it's true, I'm sure they'll be ramping up production very quickly since the MY '08s are just around the corner.

Spring Installation in Miami

I think you can look for a place in Hialeah that install springs.
The name of the place is "El Resorte" (spring in English). I called and they queoted me $25.95 for the installation.

Only in HIALEAH!!!

Thumbs up SFLgator please post a review!

Nice to see you finally got the Procede, man seemed like you were waiting for ertanity. Congratulations!!!! Anyway been following your threads and reviews from day one and like your review especially since you were one of the original beta testers. I had a ride in Clem's car and its was faaast! But its a stick. I am actually getting a steptropnic so I would appretiate your view.
How long is the Procede wait? I should probably be asking Shiv that question. Also how how is the difference now? Do you really notice it? As one of the earliest adopters I have been waiting to see how long it takes before you sort of get used to your car and stop praising it... Today I finally got my production number, delivery date confirmed too! I ordered back in mid February, and will pick up June in Munich. Damn things are moving at a glacial pace. Really slow. Wait, wait, and wait!

Congrats to your car prod. number and delivery date...Munich in June will make for an nice ED experience!!! Anyhow, I only got to drive my PROCede-equipped car around for about 15 min. today after it was installed. I'll get some more time with it tomorrow. However, my initial impressions are good, I guess. It seems a bit slower than my car with the XEDE, but I really think it's an illusion since the PROcede seems to increase the HP/TQ (and turbo boost) in a much smoother fashion than the XEDE did (it was more like an on/off switch ).

In my XEDE-equipped 335i under 1/2 - WOT (when the turbo boost really kicked in), it was like ..."OMG...hold on!!!!" So far, with the PROcede, it feels more like it did when it was stock, only faster. The boost is definitely stronger than stock (and HP/TQ are definitely increased) as with the XEDE, but it pours on the power more like it did when it was stock...in a smoother, more gradual way. The XEDE, however, was a much more sudden 'bang...the turbos just kicked in' feeling.

Shiv has assured me that my now PROcede-equipped 335i is just as fast if not faster than my XEDE-equipped 335i. I think I just need to get used to it, and I'm sure as I do, I'll like it even better than when I had my XEDE controlling things. After all, I've been driving an XEDE-equipped 335i for more than 5,000 mi. over the past 3 months (I've got ~ 6,700 mi. on my car now), so it will take some time getting used to how the PROcede handles the HP/TQ.

sflgator, have you ever dynoed your car? I got my procede in my coupe, and I want to dyno it to see how much exactly its putting down at the wheels.

When i put in my Procede, i sort of felt the same way like you did when you changed from xede to procede. I thought going from stock to Procede would be a bigger difference.

But after driving it for a couple days, I am starting to realize the power. I do want to dyno the car just to make sure though.

Yes, but that was when Shiv installed the XEDE (not PROcede) in my car during the S. FL XEDE beta testers group in Dec., '06. My 6AT 335i Coupe (running on 93 octane) dyno'd the following:

Stock dyno: 265 WHP / 286 lbs.-ft. RWTQ

XEDE dyno: 322 WHP / 378 lb.-ft. RWTQ, + 57 WHP / +92 RWTQ

Although I haven't put my PROcede-equipped 335i on the dyno, based upon my timed runs and "feel," I'd have to say that my car now has at least that much HP/TQ to the wheels and more than likely, a little more ; probably somewhere around 330 WHP / 380 lb.-ft. RWTQ.
