Clean! I just barely picked up my AW E92 and was eyeing a few AW E90s...beautiful stuff!

I'm living in Layton and am seriously considering picking up a ~2008 328i, or 335i this summer. I need some reassurance about the local dealerships/community.

Since we are too gheto up here in the Odgen area to have a BMW dealership the closest dealer is in Murray. Anybody have any comments on how reasonable Firmage has been with replacing extended warranty stuff? (specifically I am worried a bit about turbo/wastegates, and HPFP)

Outside of the dealership anyone know of a good independent mechanic up north of SLC?

How about someone local that knows their way around coding BMWs?

Also how many of you locals make it out to Miller Motorsports park? At the very least I plan on taking the car out to a few Wide Open Wednesdays.
Great questions...I'm in the same boat, except that I'm living in Murray. Just picked up a 335i...coming from Japanese cars, I'm a little leery about the reliability, but I'm crossing my fingers everything goes smoothly. I do love the car though so far...just hope it doesn't end up costing me an arm and a leg to maintain.

Requirements: 09/2009, or later CIC-based Navigation system.
Doing one update on Saturday so far. Anyone else want 13' maps?

Anyone tried caliper painting

Just wondering if anyone has tried painting their calipers? Would love to paint mine black on my e92. Just wondered how hard it is and if its worth it. Anyone locally done this?

Chris over at Luxe Autospa offers to do mine everytime I'm in there. I've seen a few other's that he's done before - they look nice. He cleans them really well, and then uses a high-temp caliper paint. His pricing is pretty reasonable. Give him a ring.

Just met Cougar for the first time last week. Super nice guy and appears to know what he's doing. For paint protection/clearbra, there is no better installer than Justin - all done by hand. Chris runs the auto detail side of the shop. It's an awesome group of guys @ Luxe.

I am planning on it. Hope we get a good turn out tomorrow.

Still working out which car to bring, 1M or ZHP?. Most likely the 1M today is the first day I have driven it since last November.
