There is a guy in houston that does this for a great price and offers excellent service. I got my car done about a month ago and it runs so much better. Feel free to PM me so I can get you in contact with him.

A buddy of mine went to Ultimate Bimmer Service in Dallas, got the Walnut Blasting done and before and after pics. He said his 135i with COBB stage 1 got almost 15% in fuel economy, just riding around with him we could tell the part throttle response was night and day. and of course full throttle was now even more tire smokin. They only charge $500 as well, I am going to be taking my M3 and 330i to these guys!!

You could join us @ https://www.facebook.com/groups/e90post.austin/ and ask for feedback there (I also just posted your question there), if you're not there already. Sammy out of Dallas is posting the $250 special recently, and then we have two folks in Houston who's posted about doing it as well (MPower and Robert).

I saw your car being worked on before I left at 12pm.

Sammy did a great job. Dropped it off at 8am. Showed me videos of the before and afters. Also did my state inspection!

I'd recommend him!

Response feel so much smoother, and the odd rattle (have the golf tee mod w/o the golf tee) in the exhaust went away at start up.
