Hey Gents

Be on the lookout for the new Police car, unmarked Black Dodge Challenger

Buddy on mine got dinged on Calgary Trail N last week 80+ in a 60 zone.

Thanks for the heads up. They seem to be changing things up a lot lately. I remember seeing an unmarked GMC Canyon off Whyte Ave a few weeks ago. Fortunately they're still using domestics. They day I see a Toyota Camry with Red and Blues...

Good to know...
BTW, spotted a black E92 last night (5.30pm'ish) on Hwy 16 eastbound, west of the city... traffic was heavy, with people stuck to the left lane... saw this M3 moving to the right lane to pass some (including my GF driving), i was hoping the guy would punch it to get ahead of us so that i could get a glimpse of that V8... didnt happen anyone here?

Got the stg 1 Dinan kit installed with the rear end links and all is good.

Better grip under hard acceleration and uneven surfaces

The ride is still good albeit more responsive for sure

I'll be doing more driving once we are out of the monsoon season and see what else I can learn

Gonna reflash my AA at EEC sometime soon too

Anyone interested in swapping out their Carbon Leather Trim for my Brushed Alumnium Trim?

Let me know how the reflash goes and pricing too!

I'm getting pretty close to opening up the exhaust a little more and may need to get rid of some warning lights.

Installed AA X-pipe and Dinan midpipe software (thanks Glenn), as well as Vossen 20's (thanks Jonas) last week.

The car is just that much better and have been getting great response to the new look and sound!!

Scott, do you have any more info on the event? I would be interested since I am always out that direction.

Also, not sure if anyone knows about it, but I was at Edmonton BMW the other day and grabbed an info sheet for the BMW driving school out at Stratotech in Sept...sounds like fun.

I'm #71, if you want in, act quickly as it's going to be publicized starting Monday.

Hotel space may be an issue too.

Anyone interested in a custom X-Pipe? This includes a High Flow Cat to replace the main and is straight to the connecting pipes for the axle back. I bought this out of impulse and a few friends have convinced me the exhaust already sounds good as is.

I'm pretty sure it will still pull a CEL light but now that we can get an AA Tune locally, that's not a huge concern.

I can email pics for anyone that's interested. I'm looking for $400 locally.

Yeah thats my problem too.

I have too much stuff and the Megs is just not getting used anymore

Great to see you on a 797 Jamie. They are an incredible vehicles and the size is just overwhelming. What a beast.

I was in the Cat building behind Mildred Lake when they were assembling one. Pretty impressive.

I am not in that photo..... that was one the guys got off of the net..... I believe that photo was taken in South America. We have a fleet of 56 797's (14 797 A's and 42 797 B's) and 74 930E's and I am one of the many HET's who maintains and repairs the fleet. Our fleet is the largest in the world operating at one mine site.

Come to Fort McMurray and I can get you a ride in a 797 if you like!

BMW enthusiasts. I was just emailed that the BMW club rallye on August 21 is going to be cancelled unless there are at least 10 more cars register. I'd hate to think that we couldn't get enough bmw Members to hold a rallye in edmonton. What does that say about our community.

Felix, I considered the event but I am finding my weekends needed for recovering from work these days. I just can't commit to a day long event.

I can't speak for everyone out there but I am over-leveraged, over-utlilized and under-rested.

I guess thats that way it goes in Oil town.
