Who were you representing? How much $ does ECUP charge for the 240E, even to check if the car has it? I'm not sure if I do.
under$200, I could not remember.

Ya I was really hoping to see the new Cayman on display but I guess it's too early here in Canadia to show it. The C63 coupe tempted me enough that I scheduled a test drive. Confirmed what I thought before: really nice inside, amazing sound, pulls like a freight train. But the transmission is slower than the DCT, the front end is numb (I'm not an experience track driver but it was noticable compared to my old e92) and it feels big without offering much more room inside.

I considered the C63 Coupe .. but couldn't get my head past this:



Engine is great though!

I have a set of 265/35R19 + 245/35R19. The fronts are great, and the rears have at least one season left in them, maybe more. PM me if interested and I'll take some photos.

I think they are Michelin PSS.

I've got a bunch of tires (5), I know 4 are new <1000km's on them and mounted on the stock 19's, one pair of PS2 fronts and one pair on Conti rears, and a decent used one not mounted stock pzero. Will check this weekend as they are stored with my car.
I could part with them to free up some room. All are stock sized. I want to keep the rims though, as I'm considerring putting winters on next fall instead of storing the car, was a hard winter knowing my M3 was in storage and roads were clean/dry so often this winter. Thinking of putting in the battery and pulling it out of storage this weekend.

Just when you think your car is clean ... take the bumper off and it's filthy in there!

Was tempted to not do the bumper license hole repair since my temporary fix seemed quite effective, but it's a long weekend and needed a break from the computer screen.

Will post details after if anybody is interested; hoping it'll look mint when finished.

Summer tires going on next week; 295's on ZCP It's time to roll in the cruising season!

No, was between the AD08's and the Hankook V12's ... Went with the Hankooks since they were a little cheaper and these will just be DD tires.

295/30R19 rear, 275/30R19 front.

Ha -- so the bumper repair went well as far as hiding the holes.

But the crappy clearcoat I used turned slightly yellow the next day and my blends were not acceptable enough. My friend who runs a bodyshop is going to reshoot it for me using better paint/clear this weekend.

At least DIY was tried, if failed.

Hard to tell from phone pics, but anyway...

Ordered Gintani Sport Exhaust today; Alex@Gintani talked me out of the Race, and they have stopped making the hybrid. Hope it's loud enough, but at least it shouldn't upset the neighbours too much.

I might be good for a meet on the 20th April; hoping to get the summers on next week.

My car will be at Driven 2013 on the ZR Auto booth, mainly as a stickered up billboard to show ZR is not just about exotics. Hoping to get on a few more mods on before then to move it away from stock. The Edo MC12 should be there too!

Nice! The sport sounds great!
I just switched from the valved sport to the valved race and it is LOUD AS FUK, but sounds insane! The great thing is that the valve (closed) removes most of the drone on the highway.

I was so tempted man .. to do the race without valve. But I think my wife & daughter would disown me!

I found the stock exhaust a very tame match for the engine, so I'm hoping the Gintani Sport gives me the balance in sound that I want; can't wait, may this be the first mod of many.

You will love the sport, it's pretty loud and sounds great!
Keep in mind that it takes a while to break in and is a bit quiet at first. It took a good 7-800KM to really open up and the longer I went the louder it got.
I would strongly recommend the valve if you drive on the highway a lot. PM if you want more info
