Sam, nice to have you back in the club again.

Miami and Nirvana, eager to hear your experiences.

Deep, I agree, we should get together for a drink sometime this week.

Yes
Haven't done it in a while, but top off my head

Turn signals on heads up display
Temperature and PSI on display
No need to accept navigation disclaimer
Doors windows all roll up and down mirrors fold in via remote
Doors unlock auto on power off
Passenger seat belt ding removed
DVD plays while moving

I have a few more to do, not major ones camera disclaimer etc

I'll be happy to share cabling or meet up one day

I'm not an IT superstar but I can read and follow directions

I didn't think I would need an Xi here in TX!
Granted I did take the car out yesterday to have a little fun .. Ofcourse safe and controlled fun.


**before anyone jumps down my throat. I am not new to driving in snow/ice conditions, I have been snowboarding for 17 years now and drive in this type of stuff frequently. And made sure to have my fun in secluded areas

Glad you enjoyed the icy weather. I had my DD (Saab 9-3) for my work commute yesterday.

Ok guys - there is a cool F10er that is on Bimmerforums that has a M5 STYLE rear bumper for sale. He has a very impressive matte blue wrapped F10. His name is Tim, and he is actually starting a vehicle wrap business. He said this rear bumper has really good fitment. He has it listed for $500, but will sell it to a fester for $450.

There is a meet coming up this Sunday. It is posted on BimmerForums (which I never heard of until today ).

I am looking to get rid of the JB Stage 1 tune. I have my appointment coming up soon and after that am thinking of going back to flashing the car. The same company that tuned my E60 535i has a flash for our cars as well. So its a toss up between them OE tuning and RennTech.. Hmm decisions, decisions.
So I figured i'd offer it up to the local guys first. I will do $300 for the tune and that will include the USB cable.

Great idea Miami, unfortunately I've been out of the tuning scene for such a long time that I've lost all my past connections.

You are able to upgrade this by contacting BMS and paying the upgrade fee.

I will be taking it off of my car tomorrow, so let me know if you want it.

Yo Ramble, may I be so bold to ask if this thread is causing you to jump the BMW ship? Grant-it, this is a stage 2 tune dyno with DP.

I have always had a preference for a flash vs a piggyback. But there wasn't anything available at the time I wanted a tune. Now there are more and more flashes becoming available and I like the fact that a flash rewrites the data tables in the car.

Thanks for taking one for the team and being the guinea pig Ramble, can't wait for your decision on which tune and your review.
