    Car-Reality:
    • Got lucky on allotment of a 1M last year, received my car June 2011
    • Always dreamed of having a totally tricked out street/track car
    • Got one sponsor who wanted to show the car at SEMA, then it snow balled into an enormous, and crazy-expensive project
    • The car did show at a booth at SEMA, was really neat...
    • Meanwhile, wife is mad at all the money I spent on mods, car STILL being tuned, still a dozen punchlist items to do (and pay for) before it can be driven, still owe one sponsor money and am trying to sell all the OEM parts to pay him; haven't driven the car since I dropped it off with sponsors immediately after purchase (apparently I only bought it to make payments on, annoy OEM purists, and look at it in the form of online pics)



    But, none-the-less, I still love BMW and hold out hope that despite my stupid modding obsession, I will eventually have a car I can actually drive, race, and enjoy! Oh and I look forward to meeting and making friends with fellow car and speed obsessed Beemer-heads.

    Cheers,
    Steve

    Nice M! I live in Rockville, as I was reading through the laundry list of mods, I was beginning to wonder why I have not seen your car around. When will you have it back on the road? In time for Bimmerfest?

    That car has Bimmerfest written all over it.
    Be nice to have it parked next to the NCC tent.

    Looks to me like that car should be on the track rather than sitting still at a a car show.

    Just spoke to Sander at cp-e, they're getting close on the custom COBB tune! Next immediate items on the punch-list:
    - BimmerWorld occupancy sensor/airbag/seatbelt chime defeat (available to the public soon)
    - Send rear Forgeline wheels back to move centers out 12mm - I didn't allow for the BBK when I ordered them (powdercoated oem wheels black last month to run on the street)
    - Back to Piper Motorsport to cut and install rear CF interior panels, reinforce front splitter, and modify rear CF under-panel to fit over cp-e race exhaust
    - Install new RevoZport CF hood and trunk and have them rewrapped (I had the first prototypes, didn't fit just right)
    - Later, cut off OEM roof and install RevoZport CF replacement roof...yikes

    Welcome and congrats on the car! It looks awesome. I hope to see it in person one day.

    I'm a big fan of COBB. I had their original Stage 1 reflash on my 2003 WRX before the Accessport even existed. Later I had the first generation Accessport with a Stage 2.5 ProTune and various other bolt-ons that they make. I even visited their facility in Salt Lake once and met the owners. They are a great group of guys and they make some great products.

    Thanks man, yeah I'm stoked that cp-e is working with COBB on the tune. Last update, still having issues, something about a MAF ceiling. All I know is I can't wait to drive it! Hope to see you at a CCA event soon.
