Where and when are you meeting? Milwaukee is slightly large and Saturday is a decently long length of time.

I'm mildly interested. I'd like to get a couple things coded on the Z, I just haven't had time to setup a computer for coding and learn how it's done.

Hey guys. As some of you know my oil pump failure sucked. I could take a chance and try to fix it but maybe have to do it twice, so I figure why not go all out the first time, do it right, have a new engine and never look back. Super n/a build here I come! Does anybody know any shops that they trust with a great Bmw experience and knowledge that would do the machining?

Would consider them for my custom tune I will need, but I see nothing dealing with machining either in their services nor do I see a vertical mill in their shop picture gallery....

Would anybody trust this place with a BMW engine? http://perfengine.com/Pricing.html. They seem very American engine orientated but I'm thinking if I've done all my research and lay out a plan of action for them machine work and assembly would be safe...? Any input?

Does anyone in the Madison area have star/torx sockets I could borrow? I need a T50 to remove/replace my bumper.

I do, no idea where though. If I find them tonight I'll let you know since I'll be in Madison tomorrow night.

Edit: Nope, no clue where they are. Sorry.
