i didn't know there was a regional forum.

sup guys, i have a 2008 135i auto, it's grey with silver interior, has the carbon trim not the wood trim and cobb stickers on the quarter windows at an angle. all available options. i love the shit out of it, but it's a finicky bastard. it's stage 1+ right now until i figure out it's misfire issues next weekend.

I read you were taking your car in for the walnut blasting, did you get it done already? Do you think this is the cause of the misfires?

I can't imagine what that feels like - I bet you're full of anticipation!

Do you have a delivery date?

No delivery date yet. It's been a long two months, I placed the order on 10/13.

Good deal. I've got the same misfire issues too. I'm hoping the valve clean and plugs help out as well.

See if you can get some before and after shots of their work.

Took it there this morning, they ran into an issue getting a gasket they're replacing, so it'll be done tomorrow. These guys are so nice they're actually knocking some labor time off because I can't pick it up today. They said they took pictures of it as well, so we'll see how she runs tomorrow. They did say the cleaning probably isn't going to fix it, so MAYBE plugs will. I have my fingers crossed. They think it's most likely injectors.... again

Sounds like you're in good hands! Hopefully its not the injectors.

Looking forward to the before and after shots!

just got it back. it runs beautifully. no misfires at all. Plugs didn't look too bad, still a good idea to have them changed. A couple of the intake valves and ports were really really caked, and i'm at 37k miles. They're sending pictures to me at some point, I told them I'd upload them. These guys are really cool guys, really nice, really professional. A++. They will be getting my car for anything in the future.

Hey guys. I have had my 1er for a while but never found this regional forum. I saw a nice 1er at Target in Garland yesterday, not sure if it was one of you guys. Black/red, quad exhaust, eye lids, reflector covers, VMR wheels.

I parked next to it with my dirty 1er which recently had the whole front end virtually sand blasted from going on the Dustball Rally. Anyhow, cheers guys.
