Once we gets the lines and all that done we can start shipping to the pre-orders and other tuning methods, Cobb vishu etc can be utilized. Thanks to Terry and Jeff at BMS. This is by far the best solution for the test car.

    I agree with this to a point. But I will say stock frames, stage 2'd or RB's etc, don't make enough power to break much of anything on these cars unless something is wrong. Making 725 WHP and 609 ft lbs with nothing broken has proven that.

    We'll see, I hope you're right, I wouldn't mind the car holding up to Stage 2's, but the AT worries me. I'm sure I will be going Stage 3 within a year, I dunno though, a lot of how far I go with this car is a matter of how soon I can move out from my condo and into a house so that I can bring down my other project sitting up north.

Not sure why it's a newsflash, but there aren't too many people out there like that.

    Yeah, that's great. Cobb has been telling us support for the N55 has been "almost done" for a year. How about you tell them you're ready right now and see if they send it? Let me know how that goes for you Click here to enlarge

    You either have a business case for developing a N55 turbo or you don't. If you don't, it wasn't very smart of you to begin development. If you do, it isn't very smart of you to insult your customers. I run a business and wouldn't dream of saying something like that, even if it was true (which it very well may be in this case). That's just customer relations 101. Either way.......

    It's a different market. BMW owners are for the most part leasing posers trying to impress people with their cars badge and not its performance. The Ultimate Douchebag Machine.

    I love mine too. But it doesn't change the fact people rent them to impress other shallow people.

    Not that's needed, but that fact simply adds motivation to mod them out. My car clearly does not look or sound anywhere near stock at this point though. This makes me happy and haters hate...which makes me even happier.

    Good to hear, can't wait to see the results.
    Is this a 135i or 335i and what transmission does it have?

    Some of your best logic to date!

    Picking up the car on Sunday. Will start pulling it apart Monday or Tuesday. We will have it installed most likely by the end of next week. Just an FYI

    Since it's a 2011, hopefully you don't have a bunch of mechanical things to fix and you can get to tuning quickly LOL.
