Hello Oahu!

Hello everyone. I've been lurking for the past couple weeks. Long story short, I picked up M3 guys old EBII F30. I'm sure most of you have either followed his build thread or seen it around the island. While I'm not set on which direction I will take it, mods have already begun. I pulled the trigger on the MPPK, M performance interior and am working on getting parts for the M performance steering wheel, electric just because chicks dig the flashing lights...right??

While this is my first BMW, I've been a car guy for a long time. I grew up in SoCal and was into the Honda scene big time. Great motors and I did ever thing I could to turn them into race cars. B series and K series I could build and tune, not great at Hondata but I could make it so it wouldnt blow and I could drive it to a real tuner.

Military moved us to Georgia, where I wanted to be a auto x champ. Picked up a miata with a Jackson racing sc and started at it. Never got famous other than being known as the guy who drives a miata. Got tired of all the cracks and picked up a 2003 cobra. Went full blown loco, kenne bell blower, etc. put down 464 to the wheels on low boost and pump gas. Turn up the boost, add a little race gas at it jumps to the mid 600s.

Another military move brought us to Colorado where the cobras motor blew and I picked up a 2004 sti, of course I ended up modding it. Went the sleeper route and had fun driving around town. Moved to Japan, a modders dream and drove....a forester. Not a sti version, but a base model automatic. Good times.

Now here I am in Hawaii. Drove a 08 R32 for a while until the F30 fell into my lap.

Wow, that was longer than I planned. Started thinking about past cars and just started to babble, my apologies.

After all that I forgot to mention a couple things.

Anyone on island interested on the MSport interior. As of right now, it's trim pieces, shifter and e-brake boot. I've seen them sell for $600 for just the trim, but I'm looking at no where near that. More a good home and a couple bucks or some standby help.

Part 2 to that. The hold up of me getting that M performance wheel is with me having an MSport, I need a new airbag, buttons, etc....which currently cannot be ordered through BMW. Any chance someone local what's to swap wheels?

Final thing is coding. Anyone local able to do some coding?

Again, if you read the novel above, sorry and thanks for taking the time. Also that in advance to anyone who can help. With any of the above.

Howzit!

As you can tell the Hawaii section here is on life support most of the time. The e90post section is a little more alive though. Can't wait to see what direction you take it.

Jboi, I ended up having to do some work in Al's bay and saw them working on your car. AW looks good with a tint. I walked in as you walked out to get in your car, I wanted to say hello, but I was in a bit of a rush. Next time.

For now, I'm working on getting the steering wheel taken care of. From there either turbo back exhaust or wheels and tires. Then there is the suspension and audio. The mod list never ends.

Nice man. Im lovin the hilite tint from als. Only problem i have besides the dot matrix is the rear window looks wierd at night cause of the lines on the glass, like everyones headlights look elongated for somw reason. Maybe the film is still wet or has to settle or something. Yours the same way? Btw, there was a guy selling a new airbag in the classified section a while ago, dunno if he still has it tho.

Mathys,

Fotio335 is looking for a Msport airbag. Maybe you guys can work out a swap. He's not local though.
