Hey, that is a great idea. SoCal, BMWs and foodies. Someone should organize this (if not done already).

Unfortunately, I don't know of anyone in Ventura county.

If anyone in OC needs tint done I highly recommend TW Tint!

http://www.twtinting.com/

Their Yelp reviews tell all, high number of reviews with a high rating.

I live in TO. I used Conejo Auto Detail and Window Tint. My CA recommended them and they did an excellent job.

I had them put 3M crystaline on and I'm really happy with it. I used it mainly for heat rejection and it does a really good job.

Hey, I finally made an account here. It was like buying a house, minus the credit check

My name is Marin and I just took over a 2 months old leased 2012 328i Sport Line with Comfort, Tech, Lights, heated seats, sport transmission & xenon. I have another 34 months at $470 / month with 12k. The car has 1,800 miles on it and it's spanking new. The ex owner ran into some financial trouble so apparently I got a very good deal - no money down, we split the lease transfer fee and the $470 includes tax

I'm currently driving a 2007 750Li but it's going out of warranty so it has to go. In the mean time I thought giving the Dreier a try at least until December 2013 when I might get the new 7 and have my wife drive this smaller Bimmer - she's currently driving a 2009 A4 2.0T.
But if I like the four pot, I might stick with it longer, as I'm not particularly fond of driving barges like the Siebener: great comfort and prestige but very little entertainment.

Now that you guys know the story of my life, here's what I want to do with the lil' bimmer:

1. Tint windows. Ceramic 35% all around + transparent film on the windshield. I did this to the A4 and the results were dramatic.

2. Sell the OEM 225 / 45 / 18 RFT tires - I think they are Bridgestone, not sure - and get something more comfortable, less noisy and crashy. The tires are new, with only 1,800 miles on them. If anyone interested, pls PM me.

3. JB N20 Stage 1. I need that tooooorque ...

4. Replace the stock amp with JBL MS-8 + separate amp for under seat woofers + swap the 8" woofers with 10".

5. Apply Opti-Coat + invisible bra on front. I tend to do a lot of driving.

6. Have fun

7. Have fun

8. Have fun

That's it for now. I want to follow up with lots of questions and some comparos (328i vs. A4 and vs. 750Li). I'm glad I got the 3, I really like it so far.

there are a few guys here in socal that prob could prep ur bimmer (excellent detail)- for opti-coat. don't know of someone that does it- personal.

application looks straight forward-
applying with the gun looks perfect.
looks like a DIY project. just get a good detail and then apply.

elevated in Pasadena - could do 3m clear bra for ur front bumper

or paint shield 5720. - matte finish clear/ like plastic dip.
Thanks, found a guy in San Diego, who will do the application after a good detail, clay, polish.
Who? I'm in SD now and interested in Opti-coat

As we all know BimmerFest is on next Saturday May 18th, I think it will be a perfect opportunity for all the F30 owners in So Cal (SD, IRVINE/ OC/ LA / LB & IE) get together. I'd like to see how big it will turn out.
So here it is, Saturday, May 18th @ 7 PM in Tustin

The Best Buy parking lot off of Jamboree and El Camino Real https://maps.google.com/maps?q=33.721831,+-117.793966

We can meet & greet then possibly cruise along the PCH or Canyon Road (Some1 please suggest a cruise route). Bring your wife, g/f, ex g/f , future g/f or friend's g/f along . I will be bringing my camera and take some pictures of all the F30 in Socal. Please reply or RSVP here http://www.f30post.com/forums/calend...=2013-5-18&c=1 so we know how many are coming, and spread the words!!!


UPDATE - One of our forum members coding master , Frogman, will be coming in as well to provide coding for those who are in need . I will also be available to help out with coding if Frogman is overwhelm though my coding knowledge is limited but we'll be able to code more cars than a usual Coding meet. Make sure you guys are RSVP let us know if you need your car coded so Frogman and I know how busy coding will be and possible meet before 7PM for those who need to have their car code
