Cool Seattle area E9X's

I don't know if there is a thread for people from around the sound, but i wanted to see how many members we have around here. Throw a post up if you're anywhere around the area.

By the way, I'm over in Bellevue and I'll be selling my 335i e92 sport wheels pretty soon here, so anyone in the area can pick them up if they want.

do you still have your e46. I had to sell my e46 328i to make room for the e92 well, hopefully we can get a decent meet set up in the future. Getting together to get group prices on dyno runs is a good idea too. I know a place that has a nice dynojet, but they're pricey.

That sounds great - a group dyno day would be a lot of fun. I had my E46 until this past weekend; I drove it down to San Francisco and gave it to my younger brother. I realized how much I would miss the ZHP as I gave it a good workout on Route 1, but I know it's in good hands.

This shop has a great dynojet. They are a bit pricey at $140, but it's a brand new model and i think the shop is still in sticker shock. Thats for as many runs as it takes to get some good numbers. The dynojet cost 90,000 + 10,000 for install and setup. The machine is top notch and the guys that work there are really nice and know what they are doing. Woth the price for me, but i do want to try to get a group deal, or atleast get them to lower the cost to maybe a $100 per set of runs for a package deal (like a baseline, an after chip run, after chip and exhaust, run).

Ya this is where I go. I was their first step tranmission dyno for a 335 (second 335 overall), so at first we had some trouble getting it down, but it's all good now. I think they're a great shop.

welcome to the thread This can be a great place to do trades and sales. save us some money!!

If anyone needs a winter wheels tire setup for an X5, i've got a great deal for you.
I'm selling my 189s as well and I'll throw in my H&R rear spacers with them. They are 15mm and they really improve the stance of the coupe.

i need to do a drive up through the pass before the weather turns. That sounds like a great idea for a meet.
Is anyone in here handy with a camera? I want to see about getiing some real high quality pictures done if we can organize a meet. I'm also looking to buy a camera i can use to take some good pictures with.

Any suggestions?

BTW, I jsut came back from a super-long drive to Calgary. That was a blast. The car is a total beast + no overheating or anything like that after driving for hours at very high speeds.

Car looks great Glad you're loving the car, it is an incredible design. I haven't had any problems with overheating either. My temp has never gone above 250. It starts to go past 240 under really hard driving, but never gets to 250. With the air -to-oil cooler, i think we are pretty safe from overheating. I feel bad for anyone that didn't get one and i definately think BMWNA should take care of them.
What's the highest temp you've hit in your car?

Johnny3, I love photography (I actually work in the photography ******* and would be happy to do a shoot if we end up putting together a meet.

ATG, nice to see another SG E90 335i! I just put some tint on yesterday, so our cars are basically twins.

Normally it's between 230 and 240. It came up to 250 only once or twice in 6 months. I noticed that the more you do stop and go and shift gears, they higher is the temp. On my high speed trip to Canada the temp. stayed 230 all the time.
