Gwerks...what color is that M3 of yours? I see one from time to time on 96 when I am leaving work (not to invade the personal space too much).

Like I said, I have only seen the exterior. I was assuming that anyone who sinks that much into the outside HAD to be greasing up things a bit under the hood. At any rate, I bet that thing breaks a couple of necks every summer.

My Ride: 325xiT
Just purchased an 03 325 xiT ...located north of Grand Rapids
For all your repair needs check out:
Stuckeys Auto and ImporTECH in Rockford. They have just moved to a new location on Northland Drive, just south of 13 Mile.

They know European cars!

P.S. As an ex VW owner I had the VAG-COM tool to adjust just about any setting on the car. Is there such a program for BMW?
I'd like to turn on some features without going to the dealer! Thanks...

My Ride: '02 330i
I'm in Huntington Woods...and I have a silver '02 330i. Does anyone happen to have an airbag reset tool? My light has been on for years since changing a window regulator!

Oh and to euromade, I owned a '92 and '98 GTi. I don't think that our computers work that way, but that would be nice.

I will ask my mechanic tomorrow as far as the airbag reset goes...will let you know.

P.S. VW had a lot more audible warnings than my BMW, and I hated those. For example, a seatbelt chime goes off in 20 seconds regardless if the vehicle is moving or not. With the VAG COM tool I was able to delay or eliminate the chime, while the dashboard light would remain on until the belt was fastened. So far I like this beemer compared to the 1.8 turbo VW. The six cylinder engine has a much smoother torque curve, and I love the Sport mode. On top of that the fuel economy is about the same if not better!

P.P.S. I had to drive 800 miles to pickup my BMW. A one way rental in the Nissan Versa got me there, but I just realized on my way back as to how much quitter and more comfortable the BMW is. I know we are not comparing apples to apples but a 9 year old ride was a night-and-day difference compared to the brand new rice burner....

Do you have any dyno or performance numbers for your car after the supercharger? I've been toying with the idea of supercharging my car.

Thanks.
