Underinflated tires: It's amazing on how much of a negative effect they have on a vehicle's performance. Since the weather became colder, my tire pressure warning light came on about 5-7 days ago. I measured the PSI today, and it showed that each tire was 7 PSI lower than the recommended PSI.

I inflated them back to where they should be, and I must say that it has made so much of a positive difference. My M3 is much more quicker on its feet. It's faster and responds much better in every aspect.

I highly recommend checking your tires often.

Are there settings for the distance on the 9500ix or something because I cannot imagine that is the maximum range?
This is a perfect example of instant on Radar. This is what the TX State trooper use. Instant on Radar is hard to counter because it don't come on until it is to late. It don't matter what top of the line radar detector you have, instant on will get you. The best way IMO to counter Instant on Radar is to not be the car in the front leading the pack. The best thing to do is always keep a car (rabbit) in front of you at a good distant 150 meters minimal to give your radar detector time to react. When you have a rabbit in front of you the State trooper Instant on Radar will go off on the rabbit and your radar will go off letting you know to slow down. Also when you are driving down the highway and you notice a KA band that comes on and goes off not a full strength its a pretty good chance it is instant radar and a state trooper is near by. When you are done using that rabbit to catch up to the next pack of cars in the distance, just dump that old rabbit like a $2 and get up to the next rabbit leading that pack The most important thing is to just stay alert always look far ahead 200 to 300 meters for State Troopers on the right side of the road in the grass by a tree or over pass this tactic works well WHEN THERE IS a Center Divider on the Highway. Now as your distant get less than 200 meters to see far ahead or coming up to curves or corners on the highway slow it down. If your car has a Nav. system or any type of Nav. use it to your advantage so you can tell when there is a over pass or curves coming up down the road . Don't be a easy target either by staying in the far left lane all the time when there is NO Center Divider in the road and you don't have a rabbit in front of you . The city police are using laser and you will need a laser jammer to counter this type of police tactic The State troopers are jumping on this boat as well, I got shot at by laser yesterday on my way to Austin by a State Trooper I seen him at a distance sitting off the road near a over pass. My V1 and my Laser Interceptor laser jammer went off I also have a laser shield on my front license plate . I was not speeding and I was in the center lane. The only thing that came to mind when this happen was :finger: nice try fellow I wish I was in the far right lane close to him so my laser jammer could jam his gun

Easy on the V1 Blake I can deal with a few false alarms. I rather be able to tell which direction my threat is at and not looking around for it I find this part priceless .

Its quiet in here. So here's a mod update. Got all the matte black stuff on I have ordered so far: kidney grilles, fender grilles, rear M3 badge, front and rear roundels. The 3 stripe overlay for the M3 badge was the wrong size so they are resending that today.

Springs are sitting in the garage. Wheels/tires should hopefully get here next week in time for a Saturday install!

I thought I saw Nawaaz around lunch Sunday on my way north up the Toll Road before the Cowboys game. Then I saw a stock Space Gray M3 leaving the stadium as well. I wasnt in mine tho.

Yup, that was most probably me. I was on my way to College Station.

Was going there to meet up with my wife's family.

Don't be hating on College Station. Yes the cops are the biggest dusches ever but I gotta defend Aggieland. I was class of '07.

I once got pulled over 3 times in one week. Not once did I do anything to warrant being pulled over. I was just either in my jacked up truck or my R6. The cops just like to mess with people. Unfortunately for them I like to mess back.

The cops don't suck when you grew up with them always pulling you over when you used to be 16. I was on a first name basis with most of the ones patrolling parker rd.

Well you have the same basic situation in Plano as in CS. Hardly any crime and mostly non violant. So they become traffic nazis and pretend like they are doing the community a service. I have alot of respect for the officers that let 15 over go if no one is in danger bc they have real work to do.

Yeah, I get upset at those officers who try so damn hard to get someone a speeding ticket. There are always more important situations to attend to.
