Yeah, I haven't but I would occasionally re-activate map 3 if I remember but I think my PBX turns itself off... btw, where have you been? Haha

Damn.. I'm bored. Haha dude, tell me about it -- I spent more than $240 in gas alone in the past ~10 days. At least my next two paychecks will be FAT.

Hah that's not even bad! Nice nice. Dude, do you know why the vendors no longer have a exterior section in the marketplace? Apparently ST is selling CSL trunks that is made using the same mold as karbonwerke and they're only selling for about 600

Damn you bro are a baller, lol. I really gotta stop this habit driving in the night, my gas mileage sucks since I do city 70-80% of the time. What the hell ever happened to my 20-24 MPG in the city, now I'm getting 18 and 16 being the least.

But for fat paychecks!

YAY! More night owls
Thinking about how much gas I've spent irks me. I could've bought the splitter that I've been wanting for some time now. I've been pretty good with the throttle so I'm getting about 21-22 combined. Back then, I'd be getting about 16-17. Where did your late night escape take you to?

Haha, I always wondered where my money went when I don't buy mods for my car, oh right, gas

I just went to Starbucks, spirited driving in the mountains, was going to do a photoshoot but a cop was following me slowly when I was going to stop for pictures but I went all over the place.

I'm at quarter tank now

I started with a little over half a tank, sport mode killed my gas. But gotta love the sound of an NA Engine when hitting 5000 RPM and above

Next day off San Jose Starbucks!

Idr how it sounds like.. I haven't hit 5k in a while. I'll do so in the morning and finally test out my new exhaust. For the record, the latest closing Starbucks is the one on Brokaw/Murphy which closes at 10:30 or 11 iirc..

Nice. Haha dude, you can't just stop modding. I just PM'd my mod list to Route 16 earlier and when everything is typed out, I got a little discouraged but I'm not stopping until I'm happy with how my car looks. Maybe for kicks I'll send in my application to Europrojektz later on in the year or early 2013.

I'm set on getting another sedan so I'm planning on keeping a lot of the exterior mods. I'll probably do up to version two before I aim for a 335 and the modding will continue with FBOs. Not necessarily sponsored but rather become part of an exclusive group whose purpose is to emphasize the euro presence in the modding community. I guess being a part of a world-renowned group can help you get singled out for sponsorships but I highly doubt that will ever happen to me.

Very nice, it's what being a car enthusiast is all about but it's an expensive hobby and I thought you already had a 335? good luck with your goals though, hope to join those ranks one day.

Only things coming off my car are my rims, coil overs, sound system, and something else. I only bought mods for my car that can fit my future E90 right now I'm trying to find 19" Style 95 rims to replace my DPE's so I can start working on them.

No sir! I'm the minority of modded n52s with my 325. We never outgrow our toys -- our toys just get more expensive. Waiting for my paycheck to come in tomorrow and I'm picking up some m3 goodies! If I can't be fast on a straight, I want to at least be able to handle.
