Personally I think the distortion in shot #6 is just too much.

I do love Cobb though. By far my favorite tuning company.

Thanks guys!


PhotosGuy:
Fortunately for the gal with the pink 240 she was one of the sponsors. :)

Ironically, there was a handicapped gentlemen that drove an R33 Skyline to the meet. He parked crooked in a "regular" spot! :lol:

dawiyo:
Thanks for your comment. I like the distortion but I'm curious as to how it would looked "de-fished". Gonna try that out!

And I agree with Cobb. I have a lot of their parts on my car and I love them! :)

I had the 1st edition AP on my WRX and loved it. I'm debating getting one for my 335i.

What's to debate?

-It's not a piggyback with technology from 10 years ago
-It provides more power and reliability than said piggyback devices
-3. Profit?

I have the AP for my MS3 and it is awesome! AP has come a long way and it is easier than ever. A worthy mod to unlock some of that HP in your 335i! :)

I know but I'm thinking about leasing either a new 335i or a 535i. Can't decide. Anyway, back on topic. Shots look great. I'd love to see their shop sometime.

When? And if I did, I will continue to do so.

Thanks for the kind words man. The new space is huge and just a cool place to hang out.

If you go 335, you can buy an AP, enjoy it for a few years, and then sell it quickly as resale value in that is high. You now have the ability to store the original stock map so it makes going back to stock and unmarrying simple. Plus the OTS maps from Cobb are very good and are Mac/PC compatible.

I love the 5 series but that 3 series is just looks so good! :)

I suggest you re-read the "don't be a jerk" language section.
