Thank you MPowerF1.

I heard the announcer for them as we were driving by. we drove down another half a mile or so though because that was the only place we could find to park. we'll have to meet up sometime though for sure. do you live around houston or galveston?

I am in Houston. If you look around my site you will find a lot of images shot at art gallery openings around town and only a bit from Galveston. The specs on your car, what a beast!

Kind of off topic but what do you think of the PPK? I'm thinking about getting it myself but torn between thinking it'll be too much for minimal gain...

I can't really answer about the PPK because the car is not yet broken in. I will be able to compare it to my memory of a 2011 135i with DCT and no PPK that had almost 8k miles on it. In the rpm range up to 4500 the car with PPK feels stronger, even though the motor has not had a chance to loosen up yet. I strongly suspect BMW puts some limits in the DME until the car reaches 1200 miles and these limits go beyond locking out launch control.
