Looks awesome!
What wrap specifically did you use on the inside (the carbon fiber)? It looks glossy, i'm having trouble finding one that's glossy but also doesn't have that fake look.

Thanks!

Great looking build, very clean!

However, hate to be that guy but 300whp is a bit of an over shot...

hold on - you're doing 0-60 in 4.79 with a tune, intake and exhaust?

Looks good - what did you code to make the side mirrors blink or am I just missing that it does that by default?

How are you liking the downpipe so far with the JB+?

I just ordered the ER catless downpipe for my car and I'm hyped!

Love it!! Sounds great and it's noticeably quicker.

The only thing that bothers me is the CEL. Will have to get a flash tune to take care of that.

Did you try an O2 spacer?

Quite a few members with the B58 engine found success with the right-angle one and I think someone on here with a 328i successfully suppressed the CEL long-term with a straight one.

Ah I forgot about that. Haven't tried an O2 spacer yet. Are they easy to find?

This is the one I ordered because I have the B48 engine and all the B58 guys are running it.

The one pictured below is the one that the guy with the N20/N26 used.

Update us if it works!

I'm anxious to see if I can get the right-angle one to work as intended.
