OMG... so get this. I was told to come by right. I go by today after work to get that taken care of. I walk in and hardly anybody is left at the service counters which its end of day no big deal. I just walk up to the only guy pretty much there and I stand... and stand... and look at him... and stare off into space... and stand some more.

Then he finally asks if I need help and I told him Tonya told me to come by and get the car topped off, so then he's like you can buy some oil, so I said, well that's not what it sounded like to me. Then I proceeded to be like no thanks I'll come back when the lights on. He said I still have to pay for it. Then irritated I called BMWNA to find out what the real deal is since even BMWNA told me at the light they are required to top it off.

I asked them again and the guy was like yeah, then said hold on let me make sure. He comes back after telling me yeah they have to, and saying no. Burn off is not part of the maintenance program no matter how oil you lose. I proceeded to say.. soooo I could run my car dry of oil, and blow up the motor before they would add oil He said yeah pretty much. He said most dealers though do give top offs for free as a customer service incentive since it's really a small thing to do and makes people happy even though it is not required. I feel like that guy behind the desk gave two shits about helping since I stood there forever. 50k no maintenance my ass. I'm going to have to order some damn oil now from Tischer or my friends dealership.

Dude that guy gave two shits about helping me, I was as nice as possible. BMWNA was more helpful than that guy, they even told me to call around at other dealers and find someone who will top it off since a lot of dealers do it.

I hope they prep the track better this time than the last time I went up there. I didn't run but some of my friends did and the track wasn't prepped much. I think most people are seeing mid to low 13's on a stock car.

Well I'm hoping to get a 13.3 or better this weekend provided no head wind.
BMW is a new animal for me..

So I've been told that I was leaving in 2nd (not in DS) and I obviously new I had a issue with the traction control not being completely off even though I've learned about holding down the button for 5-10 seconds now.

Hope the weather and my time holds out for Saturday.
You should come and get some of your buds around here with their 335s & bring them too.

I'm starting to research programmers, chips, etc.
Dinan looks most appealing so far cause of warranty, but I don't like that $2 grand price tag.
Any that you like better?

JB3 is the best out I think. Either JB3 or Procede V3 is, but I would buy JB3

I would do Procede with Shiv hands down. One of the guys has a JB3 and likes it a lot though. I'm probably going to wait it out and see what AMS does, they will no doubt bring some very very good products to this car. I'm the only one of my close friends with a 335i it's a variety of cars between my friends.

Dark, in regards to the oil, like I said, they pulled the same stuff on me. I just said it wasn't worth arguing over, so I bought the $6 quart of oil and put it in myself.

Buick, I've had the JB2 and now the JB3. For me, the combination of reliable power and excellent customer service sold me on the Juice Box. Plus, it's pretty quick

I already ordered a case of oil from my buddy. I got it for el cheapo! I don't mind buying the oil if that's just how it is but the blatant lack of customer care is what bothered me, and the fact that nobody was on the same page with what the actual deal is regarding it. Don't even get me started with Bimmian stringing me along just for some painted grills either, I ordered them Sept. 02, and have been told 3 times they were coming in and they haven't.

Buick, I would say take a ride in some people's cars since TN_3 has the JB3 and Noize has the V3, along with somebody else locally I think.

Jake, PM me your gamertag.

I'm going to Dyno4mance this weekend and trying different PROcede maps so I can post results.

If any of you turbo guys are free Saturday, you should come down!

I bet I can get that Juicebox car a couple of free pulls so we can compare tunes.

I feel so out of the loop with my N52. I'd like to contribute to the conversation, but who gives a crap how fast a 330 can run a 1/4.
