Everybody all set? Looking forward to it, though bummed I will likely not have time to install my new x-pipe before the meet. See you all at 9am.

Agree! (although I realize my response is likely too late to do any good)

It was fun! Here are my overall impressions of how we all sounded:
  • The OEM mod is $300 WELL spent!
  • Akrapovic had great tone, but was quieter than I expected. Can't wait to re-listen after Signes gets the x-pipe installed!
  • The M Performance was higher pitched than I had remembered and is a fantastic upgrade from OEM if you want to bypass any worries about warranty.
  • Still in love with my Gintani Race. Definitely need to get a diffuser to finish off how it looks.

(Taking my M into Schomp Weds for analysis on the Increased Emissions error... I suspect an O2 sensor but would be lying if I said I wasn't nervous they won't try to blame it on the exhaust swap.)

Thanks Sid and for the exhaust guy's info, going to get my OEM modded asap.

Agree with this^^^, nice summary. My Akra seems pretty mellow in this company so looking forward to the x-pipe to see how it opens up. Good luck at the dealer, don't forget you can go to another more mod-friendly one if they give you a hard time. Let me know if they wind up reflashing your car as a result of the CEL.

Speaking of which, I'll try to get a dyno day set up in the next month or so for anybody interested.

Looks like a fun time, sorry I couldn't make it. Another E90 would have definitely balanced out the bunch.

I'm sure you'll like it much better with the x-pipe. Aside from a richer tone, you'll love how much harder it pulls in the upper RPMs. Even without a tune the gains are immediately noticeable.

What camera are you shooting?

I'd had a family event I had later that morning so I couldn't make it.

In reality I probably would have skipped this one anyway. The thought of getting up at 7am on a Sunday to drive to the other end of town made me LOL. Getting up to go to the cars and coffee on my end of town at 9 is tough enough.

Nikon D200. Will have to meet you up north next time, was pretty cool hearing them all back to back. Although it could also make the visit expensive...

Schomp just called. SES (Service Engine Soon, Increased Emissions) was apparently caused by bad fuel pressure sensor and fuel pump. When my SA asked, I told him (as if he couldn't hear it ) about the new exhaust and that I was pretty certain it had nothing to do with the error codes since I didn't replace anything that would cause a CEL. Also told him I'd done some spirited driving Sunday and went into limp mode briefly. Short story: it's being fixed under warranty... and I'm buying the USAA Assurant extended warranty for $1800 before the factory one expires May 23.

I don't think they'll be able to do any SW updates / flash the CPU because I left the 09+ iDrive control knob installed. I remember reading doing so prohibits updates because it's not a factory installed part number - it was a strategic decision after we talked. I get the car back Monday or Tuesday (driving a new X3 for now which is pretty good, for what it is!), have NASA Time Trials at PPIR next weekend. I'm in for a Dyno Day after that though!

....and now we're completely from the thread llis started. Sorry L!

Any plans for another meet? I wasn't able to make the last one but would be down whenever the next one will be.

Damn. Sorry I missed this one. I could have thrown the Eisenmann race into the mix. Next time!

Last week I tapped out a long summary of my impressions from the last meetup, but the dang iPhone app crashed. (Give us Tapatalk integration please!)

I am definitely up for another meetup! Early May?

Early May works for me. We should all figure out a day to meet next or maybe even a monthly ///M meet?
