Hi Jon, good to hear from you. That car wash has changed mgmt. It's been repainted and still does a nice job. BTW, they have a new QX4 (my wifes car) with a 240HP engine, really moves for an SUV.

As far as the supercharger, I'm holding off a bit. I drove a Dinan supercharged M3 coupe for a couple hours and found that when you add that much HP the M3 really changes a lot, and not the ways you'd like. In stock form (or slightly modified) the M3 is very well "balanced" between HP, handling, and brakes. Adding the supercharger really seems to stress the other elements and to "re-balance" the car, the handling and brakes need to be upgraded also. (My personal impressions) Anyway, I'll be gradually upgrading my M3 (as everyone on this forum seems to do) but the blower can wait for a while.

Ken
