I'm planning to get the mega-speed tune from JR elctronics. Any member from the Toronto area want to join me in getting the tune? Maybe we can get a better deal if we have multiple car. current pricing is $800.

He quoted me $749 for the tune. The tune is the last thing I get for my car. I want to be able to take full advantage of it after LSD and suspension work is all done.

I would love too, but I am going to stick with the JBD until my warranty is up.

I also got quoted $749, plus he offered me a good deal if I could get a couple other cars, but I gave up. PM for details.

I currently got a JBD on my car as well; it is good for what it is but a full ecu tune is way better.

Regardless if no ones joins me in getting the tune, i'll be doing it this coming spring.

Unless you plan to track the car on a daily basis, LSD and suspension is a lot of money if all you do is daily the car.

Mostly cosmetic mods....

OEM M Sport rear
BMW Performance Diffuser
Lux H8 V3

All being installed on Sat 2/16 at LTMW

Waiting on Cyba 4in black chrome exhaust tips due to Chinese New Year. I'm hoping to have them welded on by Friday next week

I'd also like to get coded by EAS...

LSD should have been standard with this car. If not, at the VERY least offered as an option.

Good stuff Riza. I put on the 4" Dimisa tips last summer and love them.

Thanks, I just checked out your picture after install. They look pretty nice. I was torn between Cyba and Dimisa, but I talked to a few locals, and they agreed with Cyba. I don't think you could go wrong with either.

I want to put some black exhaust tips too, but after the suspension work in a couple of weeks and a bit later a tune, and then some ARC-8 wheels and better non winter tires. Then later comes cosmetics.

Attaboy! Very nice. I'm dying to do SF bushings on mine, but I'm not sure if I want to DIY.

For now, I'm just looking forward to putting on the new RGRs when the weather turns. I know that there is definitely a fender roll, allignment, and walnut blast in my near future as well, but I'm sure I'll find some other things to do.

BTW, once spring arrives...

I absolutely want to see the d's getting their warmer weather upgrades!

DFan, you sir, are about to be on a roll. You definitely get the put-everybody-to-shame-in-only-a-few-months award

You realize that after VAC gets done with me there won't be much to see. It'll still be a sleeper. I guess I can crawl underneath and take some pics of my shiny new suspension parts before they get all grimy. The stance won't even be much different. Even after I get a tune it will be invisible. Just a boring plain Jane D. I guess I like a sleeper. Doesn't draw too much attention. I just want it to be a plain looking handling machine with a rocket for an engine. Of course ARC-8s 18" some Different bumpers and black exhaust tips will pretty it up eventually.

Same here. I'm already on KW V3 coils and once I do the entire swap to M3 suspension and Megan Racing toe arms next month, pics won't even show much. Same for when I put the LSD in too.

I have a topic in here somewhere with pics of what I've already done to my car.

Well I just ordered by JBD, can't wait till I get it. I also ordered a gloss black 335d badge. Once bimmian.com has the space grey reflectors in stock I'll grab a pair, now I just need to find a place that will do my summer wheels.
Where did you buy the black 335d badge. I have been wanting to do that for some time. I painted my own grills and badge on my '71 2002 long ago.

Of course, but you can always snap a few shots of the work while they have your subframe dropped.

A buddy of mine (whos always driven true sleepers) has a motto: its better to be fast than to look fast. This is what i love about your pending setup. Once you get a tune on there to go with all of the wornderful suspension mods...Beelzebub in a lambs disguise.

Greek are you doing your own work or will you be using a shop?

Yes, sir. Diamond black for me as well (red center caps), but I picked them up just after Christmas, so they haven't really been on the car yet except for a quick test fit.

I'm getting someone else to do the work FR. I'm good doing most of my cosmetic mods but I'm not messing around with my own suspension.

I love my RGRs in diamond black too. I went with Michelin PSS tires, staggered set-up. I sold my gold BBS caps and went with CF/silver ones because they better suited my other mods and car colour scheme.

LSD standard, yes, but I'd really like a 4 wheel drive option...something to help even more with the traction.
