Thanks, I've used them before to repair a curb rash. They did good work, but had to take my wheel overnight. The good thing, they came out got the wheel and returned it the next day.

Man washed the car, cleaned the interior all awesome...This weather is going to piss me off?

On a side note, anyone know where I can get some legit seat covers for the car?

Also any local programmers that can program the car?

Hi guys, I just wanted to know if anyone has used Autoscope for any work? They have a special since it's 'BMW month'. $89 for an oil change. I'm guessing this is good, right? The chick at the 'stealership' said 220. I told her she was frickin' nutz. (and yes I told her that). Anyhoo...the prices at Autoscope are good thru the end of April. I have an appt on Friday and I'll let you guys know how it turns out.

I should finally have a coding cable on the way. Gimme a couple weeks to practice with it and I'll be able to code your cars.

I highly recommend Autoscope. They are the best in town IMO. I usually go to the Park Cities location (down by Love Field), but I have gone to see Rick at the Plano one as well. If you go downtown, tell Steve Fordham (GM) or Carson that Joe referred you. I get nothing, but they will like to hear that.

Question. SO i was thinking about getting the FMIC and Downpipes in the near future but I have some maintenance work coming up (rear brakes) and I have the extended main plan on it.

Now if I go in with that stuff installed will they void it?

My extended warranty isnt thru BMW its thru a company called MAPS?

I heard downpipes are a biatch to install and take off, so im wondering if its worth putting them on or not

@ultra: I actually talked to Carson on the phone today and I will let him know in person

Thanks for the info. This is the first time that I've had to do any work on my car since I bought it last June except for the HPFP replacement in August (my car is on #6).
