Hello Puckmaster,

Did you get the entire front bumper and hood done? On the hood were they able to wrap the front edge of the hood, I know on my current vehicle it only covers the hood portion, but the edge is exposed...

I know once I have the M3 delivered from ED, I am hoping the the 3M installer can wrap the hood past the front edge by .5" to 1" underneath...

Thanks!

Ricky

Awesome! Thanks for the response! I am not sure ithe dealers source out 3m and window tinting, or if they do it in house. But I already know where the
3M will get done now!

Price reduced to $51,900! Cheapest M3 in Alberta by far. My new ride is almost here! M3 must go.

Does anyone know a reputable place that can change tires and do an oil change without charging stealership prices?

EEC Motors. They do all the BMW stuff without leaving you feel like you have been anal probed.

Let me know what it costs for an oil change.

EEC quoted $250 for tire change + oil change over the phone.

I believe its possible to get a discount on services/parts from Bavaria (around 15% off) if you are a long-time customer, you just have to go out of your way to ask for it.

I should just do my own oil change =P

The oil change seems a little low. The oil costs $20/l and you need 10 l so thats $200 alone.

You may wanna check on that. Make sure they use the BMW specific 10-50 too otherwise BMW will not be happy. It is the only oil they accept in the M3.

They use OEM oil. EEC is a great place to deal with.

Given the marketing spend Shell puts into V-Power it really must be shitty.
I use Hughes Supreme, both Edmonton and Bavaria use it to fill all their cars. Never a problem and no ethanol!

Thanks for the referral to WheelsPlus. I had a rear pair of Pilot Super Sports installed recently. Todd was awesome and the install was flawless and problem-free.
