    FS: 2009 BMW 335i LCI

    This is a fantastic car for anyone that loves seemless power. A unsuspecting rocket.

    Knock knock

    I have a bag of walnut media I’d let go for not much. I did the bmw while the head was off and didn’t use much.

    Knock knock

    Walnut blasting has become normal routine procedure for many di motors for a reason. I could see deposits causing pinging. Hotspots on the pistons or valves can lead to predetonation. The deposits can be worse bank to bank dependant on runner length and flow characteristics in the intake manifold and runners. I’ve heard shell fuels are the best as the detergents help prevent it, and shell has the most detergents/additives. Is this common to the Audi v8? Have you looked at others reports on blasting?

    Running order

    Hard to predict as late registrants change affect the groupings split.. If your there at the beginning of checkin, they should know groups-by that point.

  8. I feel it’d be more effective if it had some metal to bite into ice (like a pattern of studs) Corey - the bang you heard was not it hitting the fender or mud flap right? I’d be concerned with the strap hitting the caliper on vehicles with large brakes and minimal clearance to rim Beau - best decision I made was to put studded winters on the bmw. Even with the open diff I never had an issue, and your IS has a lsd which would only make it better.

    Write off ratio

    I’ve been told it’s 60 - 75%. It’s adjuster and vehicle dependant. If it’s something the adjuster has had flagged to “rid the system of” like cars with rust or high risk cars they may flush them. My 99 corolla was at 65% and they wouldn’t write it off unless I took a lower payout, to bring mpi’s loss value down, which I opted to at the time.

    Spring Nat's 2018

    I’m no alien. I just find on the tour, you are in a pinch to get used to the surface in short time. By having 3 heats in the pro, with four runs each, that’s a lot of bonus seat time to make the trip that much more worthwhile. Otherwise I’d just go to fall nats myself personally as that’s the real big show, more to see and bigger competition over two days. :end thread jack...

    Spring Nat's 2018

    Your in prime shape, and I found the pro got my head straight to the grip level and got me focused for the tour. Also helps I won the pro... That trip is out of the cards for me no matter how much I want to go though for ‘18
