Also I don't have access to a lift and think it would be a tough DIY using jack stands outside in the winter. I've been with the guys from Atlantic Autowerks ever since they worked at the old Atlantic BMW on Laskin Road back in the 80's.
They let you source your own parts and buy them?

Its not so much that I want to be noticed, but more that I want to stand apart from the crowd. And to me, Phoenix Yellow and Laguna Seca Blue are two of the best ways to differentiate your M3 experience from the norm.

Small puffs of white/blue smoke when first getting on accel, at startup, and between shifts during decel on high accel runs can often be minor valve stem seal seepage. Oil runs down the valve into the chamber a bit. Unless it gets bad enough the plugs don't burn it off (and get cruddy), it's not a concern.

Someone said they saw a small puff of white smoke when behind me one day so I let Blackstone know. They found no evidence of collant in the oil... who knows what it was.

Very happy with the results and will definitely use their services again.

Thanks, ads.

It doesnt (to the best of my knowlege) happen with any sort of regularity.

A buddy was behind me one day and said he saw it and it was at high rpm. I went back and looked at all of my dyno videos and of the 25-30 pulls i have on film, it only happened once (at high rpm) so im not totally sure what to make of it. I appreciate your input tho
