Ran into a modded 1er in denver last night

Circa 10pm on CO Blvd...anyone on here? Black 1er, said he had a JB4 and sounded pretty modded.

hey! nice, i spot 1ers rarely, sometimes modded and always check the forums with no luck.

Nice to finally find a fellow 1addict.

Do you live in the Glendale area? (I am in hilltop over Alameda/Holly). Close to where we ran into each other.

What mods you running?

Yeah it is pretty rare to see 1's. Yep I'm in the Glendale area. Sorry I couldn't chat then my gf was pissed off at me (nothing to do with the cars) so I was trying to hurry home haha.
Car is FBO with stock n54 mids and Maddad V1 whisper. I was running around 70(91)/30(e85) fuel mix. Usually its 50/50. A couple suspension mods too.

What else do you have besides the Cobb? Which stage you running?

Im DPs short of FBO...emission test in March, then its go time. Probably swap my stock mids back in for the cats/resonators so it isnt louder than it is now (and doesnt smell terrible).

I am running Cobb Stage1 +FMIC sport (until DPs). ETS 5" FMIC, ER Charge Pipe/Forge DVs, Berk Full Sport exhaust, BMS DCI, BMS OCC, Euro blackline tails, VMR V718 wheels, ebay cf diffuser

Funny, my wife commented about how your wife/gf seemed about as excited as she was about us racing around on CO Blvd.

How is the e85 mix? I have always thought about it driving by one of the only stations that has it on my way to work. Would love something to run the 93oct cobb maps.

If you ever want to hit up the Bull and Bush for a beer, let me know...see if we could make a meet out of it for the locals

Nice mods.
I'm
BMS DCI
3" DP's
Cp-e chargepipe w/Tial
BMWP suspension with M3 sway
LM Rep rims
Ebay diffuser
Meth kit is hopefully getting installed this weekend.

Women unless they're really into cars will never understand haha.

e85 mix is great I havent had a single issue.

And Bull and Bush sounds great. I'm walking distance but don't mind driving a block to get there

Are you AT or 6MT? thought I was detecting some brake boosting the other night

You do installs yourself or head to a shop? Andrew over at AR design did most of my complicated installs.

It's really nice to be able to switch maps so you can run different fuel. I had an Evo 8 that ran only e85. FP Black, 2.3 stroker, ported heads, etc... Thing that sucked was I had to run 1650cc injectors with dual 255lph pumps! I had to carry an extra 5gal tank of e85 in the trunk. I did put down 601awhp/591awtq on a mustang dyno though and that was fun.

I'm AT and no wasn't brake boost just floored it. I actually haven't tried brake boosting with this car. How hard did you get on it? We should have a friendly race sometime

I do all the installs myself.

Yeah I honestly wasn't paying attention what gear it shifted too. This is my first auto car because I was feeling lazy but I've pretty much used the paddle shifters 99% of every mile I've put on the car. Sometimes I feel like a bitch when I can just step on it and go haha.

DP install wasn't too bad because I had already done the M3 bar and saw most of the underneath components. I had a hell of a time getting the rear downpipe re-installed. Once that was done it wasn't too bad maybe 3-4 hours total. Past experience was changing out complete turbo kits on my Evo 4 or 5 times. I did the BMW suspension under the estimated time with a floor jack and a $15 spring compressor.

Did you do the underneath installs on jacks/ramps?

How do you handle emissions testing?

I just use two or 3 jack stands.

Haven't had to do emissions yet. I'll PM you on that.
