Can anyone help me check out a vehicle I am about to buy located at Overland Park, KC? I live in Texas and work has kept me from flying to check it out. I would like to get this transaction done before the weekend. I just need a general inspection without lifting.

Please PM me so we can start communicating. Thinking of $100 to gift via Paypal for the help. Thanks!

Welcome, lots to read for a beginner, try to ignore the fanboys and you'll be alright.

I've been running meth for going on 5 months, very good power over the tune by itself.

Anyone get out to Fast Fridays @ KC Trends? Missed it last night, but wanting to get out there.
Also, is there anywhere else to get wheels in KC? I like KCT, its just a bit far from independence.

What kind of wheels are you looking for?

I didn't go to Trends, I am waiting for the weather to pick up and hopefully more cars will come out

I don't really have a set brand. I like a lot. I'm really liking the BBS LM look. KCT only had Bereyn and TSW. Both looked ok but didn't really wow me.

They have a lot more than that actually

They carry/sell TSW/Bereyn, Vosson, Iforged, HRE, etc...

I have the BMS WW meth kit, I've installed everything myself so far although I'm having a shop do the CPE downpipes I have. No major issues.

No, anyone can show up, although the track events you need to register for in advance I believe.

Good to see a strong Kansas City BMW following. I used to own a 2007 335i running a JB3 and I am thinking about leasing a new BMW later this year.

I am looking for a sales contact at a BMW dealership; are most people buying from Baron BMW? I am from Omaha and the dealership here is not known for great deals. Any advice/referrals would be appreciated.

What do you guys run for winter tires? looking to find a new/used set of rims and use the factory 162's as winter set.
I have a 335is with summer OEM 19's in staggered set up. For winter I have a square 18" set up with Blizzack tires. The winter wheels are Rial Salerno's. I picked up the wheels and tires as a package deal from Tirerack. Very happy with them.

There is only one BMW dealer in KC and its Baron. Some people haven't had good luck with them. I've had great experiences with the service department when I took my E46 there and no problems with my current E92. For sales I haven't had much issue either, but I'd think you'd find a better sales deal by going to some place like Chicago or St. Louis if you're willing to travel since both cities have multiple BMW dealers competing for your business.

Baron will do some dealing since they are competing with non-BMW car sales, but when it comes down to it, if they know you only want a BMW they have you unless you're willing to drive to Columbia, Topeka, Wichita or Springfield (all the nearest BMW dealers) which are all a fair drive to get to.

Thanks - I have read good things about a CA named Gregg at Baron. Sounds like they Have a monopoly there just like Markel does in Omaha. At least I have a couple of options.

I do all my negotiating strictly by email so it is pretty easy to shoot an email to get the process rolling.

Thanks again

Heartland Park

I know Heartland Park is probably about an hour and a half from most of you, but I wasn't getting many responses in the other thread:

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=688213

A couple quick questions on HP if anyone has been there before for a Test-n-Tune:

1. Are they sticklers on requiring a helmet for 13.99 and faster?
2. How many runs on average can you get in on a Friday night?

I'm going to be back in Kansas later this year and I'm looking at going to a TnT to see what sort of numbers I can put down closer to sea level, but I don't really want to bring my helmet if I don't have to (car is always packed with stuff for two kiddos and a week in Kansas).

TIA,
Rich

Will do - thanks for the info in the other thread. If you have any more tips for running at HP I'd love to hear 'em.
