New Orleans owners advice wanted

Question for New Orleans members: any recommended shops for installation of exhaust/test pipes and other things? All input appreciated, much thanks

How did they work out for you? What setup did you end up running? I am out of Lafayette and considering the same mod.

I haven't gotten it yet I currently have the dinan full exhaust and CF intake. I'm about to buy the test pipes but Leslie's automotive (high end Ferrari lambo BMW Porsche shop) won't touch my cats because they know it's a DD. I called the muffler place and said they'd do it and southern tire also said they'd do it. Ill probably end up going to southern as they know me and do great work for me. Where in Lafayette are you, not too many M3 owners in Nola only 2 I know about outside of me

And me! Space grey E90... Had someone in a white E92 pass me on Vets a few weeks ago, don't know if it was you. Member kiln is also from NOLA. My exhaust is stock but he has an after akro exhaust now. PM him to find out where he got it installed. Pretty sure he did the cat delete as well...

Thanks and I definitely remember seeing you on vets a few weeks ago I always remember seeing an m3 in Nola. There's another white one but it has the vorsteinter hood, exhaust and all sorts of stuff but that's not mine. Nice to actually find out who I pass by around Nola lol

Have not seen the one with the vorsteinter hood, would love to see it. Where are you? I'm Uptown and Kiln has a AW E90 and lives out in Lakeview. Have an older guy living near me with a Melbourne Red E90 sporting Connecticut plates.

I'm in lake vista I live off lakeshore drive. Maybe I've seen kiln around I can't remember but it'd be nice to have a mini meet around here sometime. Lakeshore and wisner are some of the nicest cruising roads for sure around here

Agreed on Lakeshore... Always up for a meet. BMWCCA is pretty active here and has regular meetings. I'm a member but don't make the meets.

I'm always driving around lakeshore on Sundays there are occasionally some interesting cars. Some nice vettes and muscle cars usually. Very occasionally Scott from Nola Motorsports comes out with his 360 Modena race car and shows off. Maybe next Saturday or something ill figure out I might have work

I'm in Baton Rouge, but if you guys ever do a track day at NOLA i'd love to hear about it. Unfortunately, I have to work for the NASA event on 2/23 though.
