That's true and I agree. I'm not a big fan of the cold weather. We can figure it out friday and see if the forecast has changed at all. I'm gonna say colder than 40 and there probably won't be too many people.

I know...too many questions but there are a lot of options with regards to tires and I'm so hesitant to not have RFT without a spare.
The first thing I changed on my 335i after getting it was to get rid of the run flats.

I haven't had these tires for very long but I have driven through a bunch of rain and snow storms, probably ~ 10k miles. They have done very well - my brothers driveway had 4inches of snow this morning, I didn't have any issues getting out of it.

I have a different set of wheels and tires that I ran last summer that would have made my car a permanent parking fixture if I had tried to use them to get around up here in the winter.

I do not have a spare. I do have a can of gel stuff to put in a tire if it does go flat. Continental, if bought through tire rack has some road hazard deal too.

I've heard that gel can mess up the tpms????

^Same here. Not sure what costs to replace tpms but not sure I would wanna go that route if that's the case though.

I had Casey adjust my turbos for wastegate rattle and they left them both leaking. After the lawsuit I had CF replace both of them with no issues thus far....

Ugh...why can't there be any good dealerships around here. CF and Casey have a monopoly going. No other dealers in the area so they can pretty much do what they wanna do and still have tons of customers. We need to get together and start our own dealership.

Too cold for me. Good luck. On a side note, what do you guys know about running E85 Ina completely stock car? I think I remember hearing I can put a gallon in a full tank and it would be ok. Thoughts anyone?

Planning on going and my buddy will be bringing his 1er as well. Trying to talk my other friend in to bringing out his e39 M5, but we'll see. Hopefully not too cold.

I need to get the car washed on the way up there - anyone know of a decent touchless place around there?

You can run it, but you will see the benefit of it if you had a tune. I ran it once on my car and it was a huge difference. At that time I had the JB4 in. I haven't tried it with the JB4 G5 ISO board yet. It seems to be even better. I just have to update to the most recent firmware.

I am guessing there will be plenty of dirty cars there due to this weather. It is suppose to be pretty decent out tomorrow morning so it may be a good turn out. Only car wash I can think of on the way would be is freedom car wash.

Thanks muzz. So can anyone tell me if the N54 has a MAF? I was gonna clean it today, but I'm reading a lot saying only the N55 has one. Damn...I was hoping this would be the cause of my SES codes.
Good luck out there this am fellas. 27 is a bit too cold for me, but I hope there's a good turn out.

Would a dirty TMAP cause a CEL like a dirty MAF could? Not sure if it's worth pulling it out and cleaning it or not. I'm thinking the cause of my P0171/P0174 is leaning more towards a vac leak. Anyone ever tracked down a vac leak on their own? I was thinking about bringing it in for a smoke test.

Seemed pretty good to me - the parking lot was pretty full and the line at the coffee shop was pretty long. Would have liked to have seen more Bimmers, but some cool rides there. Guy with MR 2013 M3, matched roundels, carbon fiber all over the engine bay and iND custom, paint matched supercharger...
