Getting basic service at stealership.

I am gonna get EEC to drop the underside to replace some worn OEM shifter/tranny parts that connect to my Rogue. Hoping that get rid of some of the shifter slop.

I'll let you guys know if it helps the 6MT.

I hear you. I unloaded mine last October. There is a sweet spot for getting out. Would have loved to keep it long term. Was a gorgeous ride and a classic with the naturally aspirated V8.

I used to use Easter as the day I swap my tires over but Easter was early this year.

I am aiming for April 15 for my swap date.

Most people in your case just get a oil pan warmer like below. BMW Edmonton puts them on all the time.

If you are looking for a used M3 talk to EEC Motors and get one imported from the US. 2 of my neighbours did it with great savings and TBH I'd do it too. I'd change the cluster though.
Will that be finance thru the bank or BMW ? If you r here in Canada will the us bank or BMW financial agree

Best bang for the buck is better tires. Given our shit roads I wouldn't lower it.

Get some great sticky summer tires and get out and drive it.

Dont do big rims. It slows the car down. My M3 slows down going from 18's to 19's so it sorta pointless.

NA car so any engine changes other than force induction is more or less a waste.

275/295 Nitto Nt05s with Apex EC-7 wheels.. Just got them mounted today. Little disappointed about how heavy the tires are (compared to my Conti ExtremeContact 19s), but should be way faster on the track.

Also planning on doing ZCP springs with adjustable front camber plates.

THought I would mention that I have a set of 220M rims for sale. Purchased with the vehicle in 2009 and taken off with 25km...the car went straight to Karmac for upgrades.

Been sitting in the garage since then in my HRE boxes. Wheels are mint. If interested, feel free to pm me.
