Hey my gf is used to it now. I make her hike across all the parking lots in town. Your wife will adjust

Nice ride, love the SG, especially when the purple comes out.

Those are the best places to parked.

Hey Albert, if you want I can get you some info regarding dyno. I know few guys over at 6speeds that are getting it done.

I am for sure going to do it before and after. Anyone else interested?

Picked up my M3 today after going in for the 2000KM service. So oil change, transmission oil change and they needed to replace my left headlight for the adaptive headlight problem.

Although I did not get a BMW loaner car from Edmonton BMW, they did acquire me a sweet Chevy Malibu to drive around for a day and half. lol It could have been worse. I'm just happy they got me in quickly and got me a vehicle. I was dealing with Andrei in the service bay and was quite happy overall with the experience.

And now... time for the RPI scoops, BMC filter, Eibach springs and 15mm spacers all around. I just need a good Xpipe setup and I think this year should be done.

Sorry to treadjack but I wanted to give all of you some info.
If you want to show your car at the BMW show and shine on June 14 bring your car at 10 am to get a parking spot. The show and shine will continue until about 2 pm. Sparkyg you indicated that you were coming. Anyone else ?

Rogue Engineering sells a gorgeous set of Brembo GTR brakes, $14k for a set.

They had 4-6 weeks delivery on theirs.

Any reason why the wait is so long Felix? Shitty for sure.

I guess it is AP but 3 months is crazy, wow.

I think that Stillen in the US was planning on developing there own sets but after a time they realized that they wouldn't be able to get them soon enough so then ordered them from England; but in the meantime , time was passing and we are now 3 months later.

Stillen has an AP front setup now made in the US but still has to import the backs. Im going to call Stillen tomorrow to see if they got their air shipment from England . They promised me that they would ship the brakes tomorrow to Canada at the latest. Who Knows.
I still have to order my exhaust and I will be in on the group buy for the wheels on this forum. These will take 3-6 months. Good for next year.

I know I know... it's hard to resist but I told myself I'd waste my money on vacations this summer instead of on toys... I had a real bad habit of wasting ALL of my money on my cars before... I've convinced myself some small purchases and one big purchase allowed per year.

So who's all coming out to the Show & Shine at Bavaria? I can't say I'll be in town for sure to attend but if I am and there is a good contingent of us, I'd be more then interested to participate.

I'm gonna be there barring anything that happens last minute.

I say that since I am sure we all have a perspective on things and we are all busy in our lives.

Nice turnout in Calgary. See the pics section

Put me down, weather permitting...lol. The car goes under the knife next week, so should be good. Jack had commented to me about how we all seem to be reluctant to meet until mods are on...isn't that the truth, though?

Anyhoo, let's all bring it out on the 14th, then. I'll bring my camera, though I promise nothing in terms of picture quality unless you put some teeth on your hood somewhere that I can reference.

Glen, btw, Ilia called me and said that he expects to be ready to ship the Rogue this week. We still shipping out together? I was starting to second guess about going with my UUC which is sitting on my fireplace mantle. Especially since UUC is virtually ready to shift the DSSR as well.

Oh yeah, also spotted an AW e92 M3 turning West on to Jasper Ave around 2:45 this afternoon, going into the Rexall across from Suede. Anyone here?

LOL....Check this out...

Seeing that I ordered a front caliper set only, I was thinking to myself, how can I get that rear BB look without the BBK price. Just goes to show, that if you can imagine it, someone has already made it...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Bremb...ht_1807wt_1021

Theo at Karmac told me about this. I will pay for the BBKFOOL license plate for the first forum member to pick these up.

EDIT: just realized these were already covered (http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthr...bo+brake+cover)
