Cheap OEM Exhaust Mod in East Bay

If anyone is looking to get their exhaust modded in the East Bay check out Minute Muffler in Dublin. Only cost me $150 bucks and took less than half a day. Scott performed the ACM style exhaust mod and it sounds frickin awesome!

Yeah, I was quoted $250 and a 2day turnaround by one shop. Being able to get it done in one day was key.

You still haven't gotten it done? Maybe I'll get my other exhaust done and sell you mine current one. I have a few people who are interested in buying mine if I sell it.

How have you been? Can you make any of the events on 8/18?

Nope, not yet. I've even been slacking on getting my tint done..lol. I think I had to cancel two appts over at Rocky Mountain. Just been so busy with training, work and family. Just saw the post on 8/18. I would love to meet up by there at GG. I'm familiar with that area since I just raced in the SF Marathon and the course runs right by there on the way up to the bridge.

I'm leaving for Maui tomorrow, so I'll give you a buzz when I get back for a drive,etc.

FYI regarding your tint (apologize in advance for the off-topic). I've used Rocky Mountain in the past. He does great work. However, when I asked him how he addresses the dot matrix on an M3, he said he uses vinyl. Not sure if you're aware of that or if you even care. I chose not to go that route as I want a cleaner (vinyl-free) look. I will probably go with Premier for my tint.

Interesting..thanks for the heads up. I would like to see the difference and how much cleaner going with the vinyl-free look is.

I did talk to Rocky Mountain about the infamous E90's issue with the scratched tint(when rolling windows up/down) and he said he cuts off the plastic tabs to prevent this from occurring.

The 8/18 I'm going on is not the GG drive but this. Check out the pics on the bottom from there May meet.

RM did my E90 in October, he didn't use any vinyle. Premier is great, be prepared to pay double to triple the price.

No issues with mine.

RM in Livermore, correct? If so, that's interesting. His website says he uses vinyl for dot matrix. When I called to ask, he also told me he uses vinyl.

It's great if he can apply the tint w/o need for vinyl. Perhaps I'll give him another call

I could be wrong but when I asked him about the dot matrix, he said it wasn't an issue on E90s, Only on E92s. I'll double check mine tomorrow morning.
