Volks, any idea how much the alarm software update would run? Install isn't hard, but would need an update.

The only people I would recognize would be you and gundamfans. Most TN drivers don't have pictures of their e90s so I wouldn't know it if I saw them!

I have seen gundamfans before, I really want to meet up with him so I can hear difference in Eisenmann Sport and my Meisterschaft. I know 335i and 330i would sound little different, but barely

as for doing the install...i can do the mechanical install pretty easily its the programming thats hard...its at least an hour programming time your paying which is 95 bucks alone..you guys would need to call the dealer and ask if they would be okay with you installing the system yourself and having us program it(meaning id install it and then youd pay the dealer to program)

No at BMW of Nashville if you give them your key, they can put it on this slot
at the computer and it reads out problems or services as far as I know.
I'm asking volkswackin what information can be stored on the key.

Like
1) how many time redlined
2) fastest speed gone

stuff that can affect anything.

I know BMW knows how fast people have gone.

Story:

My dads friend had a 645i and one time he was in New Jersey,
he decided to open it up and got up to 145mph. (Forgot if was pulled over or not, need to ask dad)
Well then fast foward on, he is buying a new BMW and is trading it in.
His SA came up to him and asked him how fun was going 145mph.
The guy asked him how he knew and he said that the ECU saves it or something does (maybe key)


So if my key saved that then......
that information can ONLY be seen my BMW NA...thats not something we at the dealership can access though id be willing to bet the car stores it...depending on the model...but i do know they have a "black box" haha

I was going to just come by after school today.

Hey everybody, welcome new guys.

Volkswackin, pretty smart of you to stick your head in here; I'm sure the work will pick up. How long have you been a tech? Tell us about yourself, before I ask you to install my new engine. Too bad you don't work with SA Ryan Lewis, seems to be a great guy.

Parachute, how's the work coming? Still selling cellphones retail? I haven't seen your company vehicle in a while.

Where is everyone from originally? I grew up in CT, but haven't lived there since I started college in VA. I've lived in Jax, FL and Baltimore, MD, too, before moving to the Nashville area 6 years ago.

damn dude, stop stocking me. haha
I ditched my company vehicle, only use it for business now, dont take it home anymore.
Also don't insult dude, i don't sell phones, I work in the corporate office.
I am in charge of the whole 3g/2g network in the central TN area. Making sure no one drops calls and decide where the towers go.

Heads up - I got burned at BMW Nashville. I said 'Do Not Wash', and they did, with their 'Touchless Laser Wash'. Would have been OK, but someone decided to dry it too. Wasn't clean AT ALL when someone towled it down. I haven't had time to clean it myself yet to inspect the damage. I'll bet I need some paint correction.

Vogely & Todd installed and painted my rear MTech bumper. Couple tiny paint inclusions only I would notice, but I do.

I'd try someone else. Sonic Automotive Group owns BMW of Nashville, so the SA's are supposed to recommend Crest Cadillac/Hummer collision center (also a Sonic company). Go with Bradshaw's, or try Crest. V & T if you feel lucky. I admit, V & T were professional, and would fix any inclusions, but I want them to give it to me perfect, and not have me find their mistakes.

Spotted a Blue e90 this morning on my way to work. Spotted in Maryland Farms (Brentwood) around 8:15am today. Was it anybody from this forum?
