hey im gonna be in Indianapolis (city center ) this upcoming week for work. Staying at the sheraton around there. Theres a decent group of us and I'm sure we'll be looking to go out in the evenings. What nightlife are you guys a fan of in that area? Looks like meridian has some cool stuff and maybe Massachusetts ?

Anyone still around Carmel? Just got back from a deployment and doing a bunch of maintenance this week (Oil Separator, VCG, Oil Filter Housing Gasket, ICV, DISA, cooling system etc) and was gonna see if anyone would be willing to lend a hand with the Oil Separator, that's the one im most unsure about... Im over near 96th and Michigan Road if anyone is local? Cheers!

Thanks! Happy to be back state side, just want to get this sucker running this week before I leave Friday night for a family vacation. By Oil Separator I do believe its called that as well, that's what BMW said needed replaced and wanted to charge way too much for so I decided I could do it myself haha. the PN is 11617501566 and then I have all the other associated parts as well! I have it stripped down to the point of being ready to replace the DISA and the ICV as well since I just might as well while im in there. I think that's where Im gonna leave it this week, Im gonna try and get the CCV, ICV, DISA, valve cover gasket and the oil filter housing gasket done this week (along with an oil change) and then either in July or August Im going to try and tackle the cooling system overhaul. I just am waiting on Stett to get the Radiator hoses back in stock, unless anyone can tell me another place to get silicone radiator hoses??

Wow, sounds like you've planned your PM service!!! You're replacing/upgrading your water pump, thermostat & driveline belts as part of the cooling system overhaul right?

Check out ECS Tuning's website, they might have silicone hoses...

Yup! I have the stewart water pump, under drive pulleys and new belts with those but good call I checked my spread sheet and I hadn't ordered the thermostat yet! I had a REALLY bad experience with ECS right before I left and swore never to use them again... (Long story haha) Ill prolly hit up Turner Motorsports, love those guys, they are really helpful. Should I get a different thermostat other than OEM?

Yeah those were the same parts I had replaced after my 08' deployment. I hear ya a lot peeps here prefer not to shop at ECS T for different reasons & TMS is an awesome vendor! Order OEM thermostat through a local fanatic vendor: TheBMWPartsStore.com; based out of Cincy, OH & have the best OEM prices online IMO!!!

Yup, that's where I got everything that I didn't get at TMS so that will be easy, already got an account and whatnot. Did not know they were based out of Cinci tho! So Im usually with a group out of SC cause that's where I was prior to this deployment and we always did a weekly meet, is there any interest in trying to start that up here in the Indy area? The SC group I helped start is a general Euro group and has grown from the 4 of us to around 200 now haha Id love to get a meet started here in Indy and meet some local fanatics

Yeah they're awesome!!! Won a raffle from a purchase online while deployed in Afghanistan: BMW Performance Exhaust System

While I was TDY in Indy last summer, managed to get some Indy guys for a mid week meet. These Indy guys are so spread out though so hopefully you can get them together sometime this summer...
