Welcome newbs! When does Bandimere open, 4/13? I wanna see Craig on my old shoes over dare. Hopefully some of the new people will join BMWCCA and do some Burger nights or even the spring HPDE at Highplains Raceway. http://www.rmcbmwcca.org and http://www.highplainsraceway.com http://www.bandimere.com/index.php

Whats up Everyone, from Denver, new to the E90 world.

Just pulled the trigger on a 335i 6mt. Replacing my 745i as my DD

Car should be here in a week or 2. Here are a couple photos.





And a couple of photos of the old DD. I had her for 5 years, just needed a clutch pedal in my DD again.





The other ride wich has a clutch pedal


Oh and I may have a wheel addiction


Excited to get my hands on this car and start playing with it, and exctied to meet the Colorado crew.

If anyone knows someone interested in the 7, I'm looking to sell asap and will give someone a hell of a deal!!!!! 2002 113k miles all the expensive maintenance done.

I'll be at Bandimere on the 13th. And I go to quite a few BBNs, but just in the Springs. I may have to make it up to one in Denver. Anyone planning on doing RM BMWCCA autoX this coming season?

I'm just sick of it to be honest. I've never even come close to having any other DD for 5 years, but I'm ready to go fast again. Everyone hates on the e65, But I loved it. The face that I can have 500hp in a 335i for a couple thousand dollars is crazy!!!!!!

Sweet - I'll see you there (black LCI E90). Do you want to meet early at the gas station right by Bandimere? I don't think anyone else is going.

Love em Alex, bet they will be just amazing at the track. BTW, I like that brake fluid container setup, did you make it or get it from somewhere?....I just have a clear hose into a plastic aquafina water bottle Which does the job, but is a little ghetto.

Thanks. Both are mono block calipers and I like the orange (Lamborghini orange? Don't know.) They look better than the photos depict. Fronts are huge, 380mm. The 189 style wheels can't go over them, hopefully the 230s will! Pretty sure they will. I will find out soon enough. But as you saw, the 189s fit over in the back (I have 12mm spacers) and it's close if you have wheels balance weights...

Racey: I got a kit somewhere, sometime ago. Sorry can't remember. I bought the kit so I can connect the air compressor to the brake fluid rez (25lbs is good enough!) and drink beer while bleeding.

Rich: I will just meet you there at Bandi.

Alex are you running Stainless lines also? I have a motive bleeder, which I love, but I don't have a good catch reservoir setup. I will have to shop around.

I ended up just putting the front Brembos on this morning, then just went for a drive to bed them in. Bought a new 189 wheel to replace a bent one I have from mblaucoupe135. Thanks man! Here's some more pics. (Note the old caliper in two of these pics, had to make sure wheels fit over these things.)
