This is a little true

I am in the BMW CCA ...and have been for about 2 years I know about 1 person and they kicked him out so I stopped going to meets, plus all they do are the driving events and I am usually busy with other things

I will have some stuff by Spring

Never heard of anyone getting kicked out, guess everyone has rules though

I've noticed more emphasis on the driving events than drag racing which is where I spend my time, I wouldn't mind doing a track day but it's a big investment for me considering all the parts XIs need to do well (and not go limp)

I'll be heading to HPT for their test and tune in late March, probably be domestic muscle mostly but I'll try to drum up some interest on here and e46fanatics when it gets closer.

I am getting a M-Sport bumper (I know big deal) well to me it is when I spent a fraction of what US dealers wanted, doing some interior stuff like the X1 sunglasses holder, and the rear sockets

I picked up a N55 exhaust w/ DiMisa tips (going to have it installed w/ flanges for easy removal)

Looking @ either the COBB (need the full software so I can have my tuner tune it for me) or JB4

That's cool, I like the M-Sport bumper, also want to do the sunglasses holder and buy some of the exterior lighting I keep seeing.

I want to try out Cobb because the JB4 for DD can get on my nerves with the jerky partial throttle acceleration. JB4 and Procede used prices have come down quite a bit since Cobb released their Stage 2 I've noticed, pretty good bargains now.

I noticed that as well on pricing

I have a few more months to pull the trigger, hunting around for a FMIC ..I saw some downpipes from a new vendor that didn't look terrible

If the normal Bavarian Motor Club meets are setup then I'm just planning on going to those and inviting the 335 guys I can find, otherwise maybe Fast Friday's and if that's dead too then I'll see who's interested in a stand-alone meet

Yeah I think Fast Friday's may be dead (I have known Chad/Trends for 10+ years) and the city got pissed off about the events

Springtime is probably better, anyone have good ideas on a place to meet up? Seems like we have a split of people who are north/south of downtown so we could try to figure out a place in between. Alternatively we could do one meet up north, and the next one south
