Any help in SoCal would be great!

Greetings,

I was wondering if there was anyone who owned an M3 that could help me learn my car! I am active duty military and picked up my car a few days ago and have no idea how to use i-drive, bluetooth, and the other tech features. I don't know even know why my seat has so many adjustable positions. I got the E92 pretty much fully loaded w/o DCT. I am willing to buy lunch/dinner. I would just like someone with experience to show me the ropes so that when I ship out to Hawaii next month (my next duty station) I won't be left in the dark. Once again, thanks!

I am sure there are plenty of OC members who could help out. Taking the M3 to Schoefield? Damn, they have some seirously slow speed limits around the island!

Best of luck!

Thanks for the reply! Yea, a few co-workers of mine have informed me that in Hawaii they impound your car by law if you double their speed limit (even 20mph in a 10mph zone).

Thanks for the reply guys, i'm pretty much on the border of Los Angeles/Orange County. I don't mind driving to meet you guys, I need miles on my car (at least 1200) before I ship it to Hawaii. As long as it's not late near midnight, I just got pulled over tonight for window tint but the cop let me go because I was military. Pretty scary!

Bring your M3 by Long Beach BMW - seems like you are in Long Beach or around them parts. I'll show you how it works =)

Will,

Thanks for the offer! I will probably bring it by there for my 1200 mile service. How much will it run to code my alarm? I bought it and my uncles who are mechanics installed it, just need to get it coded. Once again, thanks a lot!

Thanks buddy, you're the man! I don't care about what the other 100 Mantis-haters say, you're good in my book

They will charge you one hour of labor - not quite sure what their labor rate is right now.
