Joining the F/I community :)
 
Well I finally did it.... just bought a 330i Active Autowerke Stage 1 SC with the new C38-81 trim Rotrex.

Anybody else in the Ottawa region is F/I?

And so another one crosses over to the dark side!

You do realize this is only the beginning...





Haha, enjoy. And install that thing yourself!

You buy through Marco on bf.com?

Thank you sir*rockout*

Yes I did cross over ...not new to F/I ...cobalt ss/supercharged and eagle talon TSI always did the work myself.... tuning,maintenance, engine swap, clutch..you name it

Well maybe...LOL

I bought directly from Active they had a deal I could not refuse *smoke*

I will DIY a stage 2 for it intercooler/smaller pulley in the future then thats it ..it will be fast enough for me.

IMO you could find yourself needing the intercooler pretty quick as many complain about heat soak on those units.

Really! AA told me it holds very well even in the scorching sun of down south.

BUT I will add a intercooler next year, so for the rest of are wanna be summer I should be fine....Fall/winter is almost here!!

I suppose the real answer lies somewhere in the middle. But yeah, now that I think about it, we don't get particularly hot and humid up here so you'll be fine on the street.

Cool! Awesome line up of powerfull E36 machines.

I'm Hoping I will receive my AA stage 1 kit and install it before the end of the Fall so I can go over and show it to you guy's.

Any of you raced at the track yet? If so what are your numbers? Im really hoping for high 12's with my car...but I may be dreaming.

The M runs low 12's until he twisted his drive shaft, the 318 i runs low 14's and have no official numbers for my 328 yet
