    That's odd... BMW doesn't resurface brakes to my knowledge as it goes against their recommendations; they say you should replace the rotors instead of resurfacing them. What was wrong with the brakes? Sounds like you need a new dealer as they're trying to cheap out on owed service. Since it still has warranty, it still has maintenance, right? Or did they stop doing that too?

    Had an overcast evening that works perfect for a ///M235i wash.

    The car was pretty bad after the 1,400 mile trip from Huntsville, AL to Cleveland, OHís north coast. 1,200 of this miles were topless,

    I lost access to metal working equipment with the job change but gained access to a ton of high quality sensors so the red rocket is gonna be decked out with lasers n shit


    I got one (1) M3 mirror assembled and installed last night. It'll be a rolling comparo until the glass comes in for the other one, but I am shocked at how much I think I like them so far:

    It's funny because my silver sedan also had just the passenger side mounted only for about a few months because I didn't finish the driver side and got lazy..

    Against my better judgment, I bought a Sprint Booster v.3 last fall, because the throttle response on my ZHP, unlike my 330xiís, has always seemed slow. Installed it today, and I must say Iím under-whelmed by the difference. On race mode setting #9, I think the response is A LITTLE quicker. Of course, I relish the fact my car runs a teeny-tiny bit better, but Iím on the fence as to whether it was worth it.

    You could always MS43 swap for unlimited adjustment of the gas pedal, but you'd likely need a tuner to fully take advantage of the ZHP camshafts

    BMW SI B34 10 16 stated they began resurfacing. When trying to find that, I am seeing that perhaps that is no longer a valid solution. So under that TIS, they resurfaced them, and I tried to continue that "case" to get the issues rectified and they (very nicely!) said no thank you. Yeah, I could have fought but they have done a tone of great work and giving my mom great customer service, a small brake job seems like a mild inconvenience.

    On day one of purchase, the brakes didn't feel like a BMW. So they resurfaced them and replaced the pads. The brakes made funny noises you could hear when driving near a wall, like a non-screeching scratching. Recently my mom has been complaining about a noise in normal driving too. They never bit very hard, and recently the brake felt unsteady with high-speed braking. So I didn't care who did it, it was just going to get done. I didn't want my mom to get caught in the middle of me trying to get the dealer to do something.

    Yeah I couldn't settle in with how goofy they looked so they went to Utah to make use of how light they are:

    Second day of interior swap (grey to black). It's straightforward but very time consuming. If anyone wants grey interior parts, got a full set for sale now.
