    Went to the stealer - warranty is up.

    Just got back from the dealer today, my warranty expired this past tuesday, july 19th...it's been over 3 years for me since owning the car (2nd owner, bought the car with 2k miles on it).

    Now i'm debating on what to do. Mods? Yeah, planning on putting them back on but I definitely do not want to pay out of pocket for any major malfunctions, i.e. turbos failing, or something of the sort. I plan on keeping this car till it dies out on me or attempts to empty my wallet.

    When I get it back, I'll end up either putting the jb4/intakes/fmic on or just selling them and driving it as is. I find myself wanting to go faster less and less as I don't go to the strip nor do I track the car. I guess a convertible isn't exactly track-worthy but the mods definitely make it fun to drive in the twisties.

    car is a 2007 e93 335i - has 22.7k miles on it Click here to enlarge

    I would mod it with the mods you have. They aren't really hardcore and you were already used to the jb4.
    If you decide to drive it as is I will be first in line to buy your FMIC Click here to enlarge

    If you are serious about keeping her in good condition put DPs and fmic back on they saves the turbos from working hard, and keep the dme stock.

    But since even bmw has a 340hp version a little extra boost must be safe Click here to enlarge
