    Selling my Vargas Stage 3 spot

    As some of you know, I've switched platforms to the S65 for various reasons. I am #2 in line for the GTX-variety Stage 3s. Since I've got no use for them anymore (as excited as I was for them), I've got my spot up for sale. I paid $3750ish after paypal fees and owe $3500 more once they are finished.

    I'll be posting up a For Sale ad for this plus my Vargas HPFP/rail and Cobb Accessport v2, but I'm just posting the stage 3 spot in here since it is very pertinent.

    I've already spoken with and got the go-ahead from Tony.

    Trying to follow your footsteps regarding pullies Click here to enlarge This is a bone stock car though, so a lot of other mods need doing first. Last car had mods on it already when I bought it and felt at times as if I was driving someone else's car. This one is mine.

    I agree with that. I won't buy a modified car. I would have to get a really good deal on it to convince me otherwise.

    lol, my mods are simple and easy. Both cars ive owned results' are easily replicated, as shown by history- no secret sauce or magic dust needed. For the M, its ebay Xpipe, custom valves for sound (Stock rear exhaust) DEFIV DIFF Lockdown, and Evolve E600 S/C

    I might change to the full Evolve Exhaust though, its pretty, lightweight, and I kinda like the idea of having the whole car "Evolved"

    Nice. I'm going with a magnaflow xpipe and magnaflow mufflers (the dual-tipped ones). Probably will paint them black. I thought you had a VF-535 kit or something? I haven't read any of your newer stuff.

    I swear, the first time I leaned on this car in the test drive and revved it out to 8400, I was hooked.

    No, I had the ess 535/550. I opted to try something different and went Evolve, couldn't be happier.

    Nothing really new to post because I can't start new threads,
    So everything I share with friends on FB gets shared on other BMW sites instead.

    For instance, I'm now trying out 60-130 times and had to bump an old thread

    Stock vs stock motor still weaker..once you start dropping money on motor builds, well, another ball game of course..are you planning to take your S65 to built motor territory?

    Well if my goals were to have the 'fastest E92', then I made a mistake. But those aren't my goals. Click here to enlarge

    And yes, maybe there's a built motor in the future, I dunno. I've built several engines in my garage before. The S65 is no different, so who knows. All I know is the future promises I got out of my significant other if I stopped doing crazy mods to cars for a while so that we could save for a new house. So I'll just make the best of it for now and enjoy my 3-car garage + lift with a possible GTR or FactoryFive Cobra + blown Coyote later Click here to enlarge

    Oh excuse me Click here to enlarge.

    Does the M3 or 335i have the E9x HP record? Does the M3 or 335i have the E9x Nurburgring record? Does the M3 or 335i have the trap record at Shift Sector? Just a thought Click here to enlarge
