I think I'm going to tackle it anyway. It doesn't look bad on SGM, but it's horrid on a black car.

Btw, does anyone know what is the deal with all the "tarheel" stuff in the local clubs? THSCC, THBMWCCA... Was there a UNC fan that founded these and laughed about "sneaking one by" the State fans or something? I know it's a state term that doesn't directly tie in to UNC, but c'mon. I can't decide how derogatory it is from any standpoint.

I find it generally annoying and think NCSCC has about a million times better ring to it.

Also, if anyone in the Triad wants to have their DRLs turned off... Carr Industries in Greensboro will do it for like $40 or so, they will also pull engine codes for free. The owner Tom seemed really friendly and willing to help us DIYers with info.

Not really... You missed CNC by a week.

What part of the city? North Hills, Brier Creek, Cary?

Nope, busy the past two weekends with family and getting my CCH. If you were closer I'd say let's do it together.

I still have to install my FBO parts too. Life is a real timesuck sometimes.

I ended up ordering 3M silver carbon vinyl so I can wrap the reflectors when I open them. I have young kids and am off Fridays, so that's the only day I can do it with them in daycare. If I have errands on Friday then the car waits.

New in brier creek

Hey y'all I'm Mike I'm military and now go to law school. I just moved to the area a couple months ago live in brier creek now.

I just scooped up a space grey on red 6MT 08 335i. Looking to throw on JB4, DCI, e85 30%, OCC in the upcoming week or two. Downpipes and charge pipe sometime soon.

I picked up an 07 335i bout a month ago, that amber corner is pretty ugly.. but you have to take the bumper off to take off the headlights? I'm thinkin I'll hold off on it til I grab a bumper(m3 or msport) in the springtime

Yes, you do have to remove the bumper, there is a DIY on here. But that is the easy part and I wouldn't let that stop me or wait for a two-birds-one-stone. Take a look at the DIY and you'll see how easy it is:
http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?p=13261574
"It took me less than 15 minutes to remove the bumper (including taking pictures)"


I don't want to scare you guys, but every single post I've read that someone cracked these open says they would not recommend it.

Huh. Thought I knew all the Evo owners around here. One ex-owner traded his for a black E92 M3. Did you ever bring it to Cars N Coffee?
