Yeah as long as it's a cruise

I don't like hitting near track speeds on the street where cops can give me tickets that would cost as much as a nice Xpipe...

What about Kanan, Mulholland to PCH?

I'm down for a cruise if I'm free

I'm with Sean, as long as it's just a cruise. I've been popped on Glendora Mountain Road before, and ever since, I swore to stop canyoning. Track has been more than enough for me when it comes to keeping my speed addiction in check.

By the way, I finally got coding working, YAY! Now I just need to figure out what it is that I needed coded, since all of this is in German....

Sounds good to me. I'm not expecting to go balls out on the mountain. Just enough to feel air blowing through my hair

When are you guys free? I think it'd be fun and sick to see 5+ M3's on a mountain road.

i totally agree. a nice easy, slightly spirited drive is great. I dont want anything to happen...

lets set a date maybe a few weeks from now so it gives ample time for everyone to make it

i agree...also i'm just not too sure how accurate the oil temp is on the wheel readout....maybe someone can provide better information on that.

however, i do plan on getting a IND gauge set up in the coin/ash tray.

oil temp, oil press and water temp =)

Nope, but I think I'll be happy with the same version that James is running....I had the older one before, and it was neat, but I hardly ever used the functions.

Only reason I'm holding back from getting the performance steering wheel is the alacantra for daily driving. I'd probably ruin it in 6 months hahaha.

Or I can be legit and wear gloves every time I drive LOL

I think my hands would sweat when it's hot and ruin it like instantly hahaha. I'm tempted to just get yellow tape and stick it on the top of the stock wheel though LOL
