It is going to be expensive cause of the rain sensing wipers. But be careful cause not all glass is created equal, so the cheapest might cost you more in the long run.
Yeah most likely gonna get the dealership to change it on Monday. I hope they can use my old rain sensor to avoid the extra cost. Yhat way I might be able to get away with $700 including labor.

Very qualified guys with lots of experience. Recommended++. Go talk to Sim & Miguel, very nice guys.

Side note: I wouldn't expect massive gains on a n/a S65 though .. I just got killed by another 335i today. Get at least primary cat delete done first to maximize gains.

Our n/a cars are losing about 10-12% due to Calgary's altitude. Tuning & cat delete will likely bring it close to the capability of a sea-level car - but with better throttle mapping etc.

I second the recommendation of ECU Tune - great people/service. They got my imported from US M3 coded and helped uninstall side window tint to comply.

That sucks Jon. Cars can be replaced, I am glad you guys got out. I am still waiting, debating if I want to leave downtown. I moved the S1K, but my M is still downstairs in the parkade.

Just online for the first time in a few days. Was trying to prevent the house from flooding on Friday, but still ended up with 6 feet of water, better than my neighboor who had just over 9ft, and will affect the ceiling joists in his basement.

Some people pumped their basements out too fast and ended up with fondation issues, and basement walls colapsing

Fortunately we have had a ton of help including a lot of volunteers, and are well on our way to getting our house back to normal. Still a long road to go but its getting there.

If anyone needs the 220M 19" rims, give me a PM, the rims are just sitting in my garage taking up space. Also, they've only been used for 15,000km

Condition:
Looks brand new except:
  • The front right rim has a small curb rash
  • rear tires have about 2000kms left on them, where as the fronts have about 13000km left.

Anyone interested in some of the finest forged rims in the business?

I am selling my M3 so also sell my 19" Neez QD7 rims. Those unfamiliar, these are 7000 ton Japanese forged rims and are the original rim many try to copy.

The color is Hyper Black and rims come with 4 month used Michelin Pilot Super Sports.

Rim offsets are optimized for the E9x M3 per the Neez fitment charts. 19x8.5 f, 19x9.5 r. Tires 255/35 f 295/30 r

See Neez http://neezinternational.com for more details.

The rims alone are worth new over $6k new.

Selling for $3k all in rims and tires.

No curb rash, no damage, just a few light scratches. The wheels have been lovingly cared for like my own children.

PM for pics or more details.

Thx

Glenn
