Three, four days I imagine. Give or take.
Are you doing the install? Can you say what extra benefits you're getting with the VF?

Everybody have a good weekend?

I wish that I would have asked Discount tire to rotate my snows before they mounted them to the wheels. My rears seem to have worn a bit last season. Makes starts a little bit difficult.

Haha! That's amusing. I drove home Saturday night from the store, and about bought the farm coming down 7800 South.

No! Why would I do THAT?

It's an interesting thing though - the physics of it all. It's happened also on the freeway once or twice. Very conservative speed, coming down a slope, foot off the gas, and the rear tires loose traction because it can't find enough grip to continue to turn the motor (back-torque?). Depress the clutch and everything comes back in control. It's always a weird moment. And I always wonder how many snow-accidents could be avoided if people knew pushing the clutch in could create more traction. Ya' follow? Another benefit of a manual transmission I suppose. Wonder how DCT would handle the same situation.

On the way back from downtown on Saturday, watched a guy (almost) lose it right in front of me. He was lucky not to hit anyone. I just slowed down and watched him slide all over the road.

It makes sense, but does not happen on snows as they are providing the necessary grip for the engine braking.

I have driven on summers once in the snow, and never will again. Its just not worth it. The fact that it took me an extra 100 feet to stop is what changed my mind.

It always makes me sad when I see people sliding all over the place and not understanding why/how its happening. Or not realizing that their bald summer tires will not help, no matter how many driven wheels they have.
You couldnt count how many BMW Xi cars would crash and they would blame the car. I would look at their tires and say, well you are still on summer tires. Most of the time the response was, well I put sand bags in the trunk!

You can offset the coding cost by installing his parts

This is brilliant. Thanks for the idea Mike.

I really dont have a need for the coding as my car will sell or be turned in shortly. I need coding on the next BMW I get, and you will be the one that does it.

PM me your phone number and I can text you what times are available. We may use Nates garage, or my dads. Unless you want to come to Lehi?
