I don't think so...slated for pick up for the beginning of April. I have been in touch with Eric from Eclipse to come up her here to do the detailing on it and then get extensive Venture Shield put on. It will then go over to my friend's shop (Karmac) for all the mods to be placed. Well, I guess, in effect, it may end up being garaged in some form until about the third week of April. Like my last one, though, it will see winters, just not this one.

Well, a medley of things...HRE, Eisenmann, Vorsteiner, UUC, and Gruppe M.

Am I right in noting that in Canada we cannot order SSII with Fox Red? Seems common enough in the US, but I don't think we can configure ours that way. Retarded.

I honestly think that SSII is an amazing color. Combined with FR on the inside, and it is over the top.

Yeah the FR is great but there are complaints of it getting easily stained from blue jeans. It is a little higher maintenence too.

I can't say anything bad about the SSII, lots of compliments all of time

What's the on the car Dr Tooth?

In transit from Halifax as we speak. Hope the weather takes off for us in the next couple of weeks and the city gets the road clean up crews out there to get all the little bits of sand and gravel off the road.

Just dying to hear the engine fire up with the exhaust, although I have been thinking of going with the RPI, despite having the Eisenmann Race on order.

The Eisenmann I thought was insane, I'd do it and the AA xpipe.

Well, you may end up being the loudest M3 in town

We must have been on the same ship...... my car is en-route from Halifax as well.

Edmonton BMW is installing a Dinan Exhaust on mine upon arrival.... I hope it sounds good.... If I could handle really loud I would have done the Eisenmann Race for sure.

Congrats on your M....... I hope to attend some meets with you Edmontonians this summer.

Looking forward to meeting up with you Jamie, as well as SparkyG and all the other M owners here. I didn't realize they already had the Dinan exhaust available here. I am contemplating the Dinan spring set, but will get the install done at Karmac. Can't justify an installation bill that exceeds the cost of those particular springs.

We should all consider a get together once the roads are in good shape...and the mods are on

For sure, we'll see each other in May

I had the Dinan exhaust on my 335, its a good setup, it was a little loud for me at times so that is why I went sport, I just want the volume on throttle

Is Karmac here in town? Never heard of it.

I might do the springs but I am going to wait and see how the new shoes are on the roads

SparkyG,

Check them out behind the old Bavaria BMW location. They are sandwiched between a Sobey's corporate office and the old Bavaria BMW used vehicle building.

I have known Theo over at Karmac for about 8 years. He is the only one who does the mod installs for me on all the BMW's I have owned. Knows his stiuff, doesn't BS you on price, and never had a problem with anything they have done.

I have had all my mods shipped to them and when my e92 arrives it is going there for installation of all the parts, including the possible Dinan springs.

Thx, I'll look him up.

Should I ask for him directly?

Do they only do Euro stuff?

I was going to get my stuff done at Eurasia.

Feel free to ask for him by name. They are I believe 99% European car maintenance/installation. Won't say anything bad about Eurasia, but I won't say anything good either...you seem like a smart guy, and I am sure you can do the math on that statement.

Anyhow, you genuinely won't be disappointed.
