2/26/2011 is the Saturday of question. We can also do some high speed go-carting at VIR?

I can set it up if we get a big interest.

Florida can't have all the fun

Also in the pictures of this link you will see they went Go-Karting.

Do you guys know anyone in the Charlotte area that can recode a VO? I did a retrofit bluetooth installation in my 07 335 and need it recoded to recognize the bluetooth and make it functional. I dont want to pay $200 for the dealer to do it.

FS: 19" Konig/Hankook Tire wheel combo $1000

I am selling my 19" Konig wheels with a set of Hankook Ventus V12 evo tires. The wheels are in perfect condition no curb rash, chips, etc. Tires still have plenty of life. Both have approx 5k miles. TPMS and valve stems included in sale but not installed.

I live in Fayetteville, NC. Pick-up only unless you really want me to ship.

i am not familiar with that recoding but if it can be done with an autologic, which can do just about anything a gt1 or any bmw stealership comp/tool can do, then i can recommend one place: eurowise.

call and ask for mike. tell him that eugene from gruppe titan referred ya. he is good people. eurowise is one of the few shops i trust wholeheartedly and with peace of mind. if he can do it, he will say so. if he can't, he will do the same.

what do you consider inexpensive?

here are some good places to do dyno in the rtp area:
-staples engineering, durham, dynojet (don't remember what model dynojet)
-absolute automotive, durham, mustang
-mayhem motorsports used to have a dyno but they have moved to a new location so i am not 100% sure. it used to be a 224xLC, i believe.

just a little outide the rtp area is fastlane motorsports in benson. they have a dynojet.

those are the ones i can recall off the top of my head.

Just a quick introduction...

I sold my '03 E55 AMG yesterday and promptly picked up an '09 335i CPO with 23K on the clock. The car has almost every option, with adaptive cruise and PDC being the only things missing.

I've driven 60 miles so far, including the test drive and I already love the car. The only thing I miss from the E55 is the monstrous torque, but the E90 is sneaky fast and I have to pay attention to my speed, because it feels like I'm going slower than I am.

All of my previous BMW experience, was through the Susan G. Komen, drive for the cure events (unless you want to count my '02 Cooper S) and I always thought I would have tried the marque before now. I started out looking for an M3, but my wife did not want another "violent" V8 powered sedan, so here I am, and I have to say, this runner up deserves a crown of its own.

Oh yeah... I will be changing the tag soon

The new...

Congrats! If you miss that monstrous torque, just add a JB4 I guarantee you'll get that feeling back plus more!

Thanks guys! I can't tell you how good it feels to be back in a car that knows what to do with a corner. I'll probably go with the Cobb AP, I used it on two of my previous STI's and I loved the simplicity and results.

The best place for a tint job is Raleigh Window Tinting. 3334 Capital Blvd. 919-875-1600. Tell him Marlon with the Blue BMW sent ya. They did the tint job on my E55 and it was perfect. They are a 3M shop and the tint is warrantied for as long as you own the car.

most places will charge you that much unless you know a person that will help you do it.

If you are gonna get those installed, you might as well install some good aftermarket sport shocks along with it. It will save you money in the long run!

Welcome. So, if you change the "AMG" to "IMA" you won't have to worry about what car it goes on (unless you put it on a beater...that would be awesome!!).

Hey guys, In Greenville NC. Just bought a 2009 335i Coupe! Picking it up Friday in Raleigh and I'm stoked! 28K Miles and its got everything but M-sport package...

Thinking about getting some new headlights, just to get rid of the Amber Color and to put something more "HD" looking in there. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks,
