Can someone please guide me to a shop that do custom coding for bimmer in Richmond/Vancouver/Burnaby.

I want these for my 12 M3
1.) Folding the mirrors with the key (holding lock)
2.) Automatic Unlock when key is removed or car is turned off

Also will coding void my warranty?!

Coding will not void your warranty. The person coding the car is only opening up features that are deactivated on North American cars.

Yes he is, but he's awesome at remote coding. Just read reviews on him.

I started participating autox with VCMC in 2010, after luring on & off few years prior to that; pretty sure I've never seen a E9x M at any autox I've been. It shall be fun if we end up running at the same events! Who is your autox friend? I probably know / know of him (her?) or at least the car PM me if you don't want to disclose too much here

Anyone has TRACKED their E9x M? Especially interested to know how our local Mission track is for our car... I've heard it's hard on the brakes; do our stock brakes fade easily on this track?
I've been w vcmc since 1999, been tracking since 04, mission, pacific raceway, PIR, Oregon raceway park, and recently the ridge. I have a 11 e92 m3 which I track a few times a year. I've tracked ridge a few times so far and it's a great track. Our cars are a little heavier than the p cars, so it's hard to keep up with the gt3 s if they are driven by good drivers. But the m is definely faster than the c2s,c4s...etc

Planning to go ridge again this summer, if anyone interested in going down together please lemme know, I can send out the sign up info.

You will LOVE it.

Just remember, even though you have an awesome car, you, the driver, will not be awesome and top dog the first day out. Just remember, you are competing at besting your own times. Not some guy in a Miata who's run for years and years.

I did have a great time! Thanks for your tip though I didn't see it until now after the event, heehee... no worry though, I didn't show up being an a$$ just because I have a high power car Perhaps my wording was a bit confusing, this wasn't my first ever autox... but my first running in the M3 since I got it last July.

I have run autox with an AP2 since 2010 and have always been there to have fun, learn better at controlling my car(s) and just to compete against myself; I have never put enough time and effort to really compete against most others at the autox scene who are quite dedicated in the sport.

My 3 key goals today were accomplished:
have fun
not over drive my car and my own abilities (so no any stupid car out of control on display)
keep improving my time on every run

Hi all out there, after past Sunday's autox, I am now looking to run next Wednesday Track Day at Mission. Anyone has any input on whether I need to go through with a brake fluid flush prior to the track day?

My car just turned 9500km, had it brand new since last Aug. Other than that autox which hardly stressed anything on the car, I daily drive not aggressively. Pretty sure plenty of brake pads and treads on still. Engine oil is at top line, had to add back 1L last month and have couple bottles on hand still.

I am likely NOT going to keep running hard and hard at Mission; probably couple "hot" laps then back way off for several laps, etc.

Will my car with everything stock and no special pre-track-day prep be ok? After all, it is an M right? Not like I am running it hard for a touring race distance non-drop.

What do you all think?

So I ran my E92///M at Mission this past Wednesday. My first ever track day, loads of fun. Car (with everything stock) held up well! Too bad there didn't seem to be other photographer there but myself and another guy in my run group

Anyway here are my photos of others, I will have my onboard vids up soon...

Hey guys, I had a little incident here on the Island and my front right lower fender liner, that felt piece and attaching hardware got separated from the car - probably at the bottom of Upper Campbell Lake. Anyway, I'll be driving though Vancouver on Thursday towards the South Thompson and I'm looking for a dealer that would stock those parts. Brian Jessel seems to be the largest dealer so far, any recommendations? Thanks.
