He knew I was modded, but he always had me remove them before anything was done to the car. I wasn't "fuilly" modded at the time, just tune, fmic, intake and exhaust. Only mods they didn't care about were the exhaust and FMIC. Their hands are tied though, the SA doesn't have much authority if something bad were to happen.

His name is Chris, he is a good guy and the best SA to talk to if you go in there. He told me the guy that has his office next to him would have flagged my car if I had gone to him instead. I didn't care since I don't have a warranty anways but I guess they can still flag it and then I wouldn't have been eligible for any future recalls.

thanks Trevor! i would def go with him next time. hahahaha when we had the conversation, he asked if im tuned. i was like, what... is this guy trying to lurk me in and flag me or sth? LOL, of cuz i told him NO! its not running tune... but hell i guess he'll figure it cuz no freaking way my car has coilover, wheels, BBK, exhaust, FMIC but no tune? i was just trying to be conservative side first cuz i donno if that will trigger anything to be flagged at the stealer.. hahahahaha

should i tell him straight up im on tune if he asks again?

Well I'm making a spreadsheet of mods and budget for Bimmerfest & Mfest 2012 for our Booth car (My E90). Doing a full vinyl wrap, lowering, new wheels, and performance upgrade. As well as a new interior setup. But want to make sure the RB Turbos are the upgrade I want to do before adding it to the list.

I don't have plans to, but feel free to some to Sac anytime Like Dan said, LSD is a must (especially if you don't want to break anything). I broke traction in 3rd last night at 17 psi (tires were a little cold), she's definately a different animal. Just running 14-15 psi on RB's is like running 18 psi on stocks.

*edit - I do plan on visiting Shiv sometime soon, but not sure when.

My thought is LSD is a must whereas upgraded turbos are questionable. Why not get the upgrade that is less expensive and will make an impact with your current power levels? All you're going to do is make your car harder to launch and thereby possibly slower off the line. Without LSD, you'll probably only see the benefit running 60-130 runs. Run slower and it'll be spin city... especially if your running more-show-than-go 19's.

Spotted a pre-LCI 335i E90 in white with blacklines, tint, and some aftermarket rims getting onto I5 South by way of the Del Paso onramp up in Natomas this morning around 7 It took 80 East I believe.

Didn't know whether to post in the spotted thread or in here...
