I'm pretty sure Spotify is integrated with WAZE now....ZERO issues with Nav, either via CarPlay or native WAZE app.

Using CarPlay, audio is played through AUX, using app - audio is played normally

so if you car came with nav and bluetooth and backup camera and the such, would you need to add any of the extra options they have on the site? I might get your thing since it's cheaper and no need to code, though they have the extra options like backup camera or microphone and stuff, is it legit plug and play? or do I have to change the wires and stuff?

Only extra options I added was CarPlay. I believe if you have Nav, you'll need the MIC splitter....EVERYTHING including OE BU camera is PnP. You'll need to transfer the green "optical cable" from OE side to provided harness as well...

Also, once installed, download bm3 Android app to head unit, log in and run your dash gauges ..

Drove back to NM to get my M Performance LSD installed as I have a relationship with Service manager and Master Tech. All my local dealers wanted 4.5 to 5.5hrs labor...a few Inde's were about the same (figured they wanted higher rate to purchase 1/2 shaft tool and wrench), I didn't want to be their guinea pig.

Did my prelim clutch break-in (20-25 figure 8's and 20-25 left/right circles). Will have a nice 530 mile drive back to AZ to complete break-in...

LSD Thoughts

Having now spent a few days of spirited twisty driving through Northern AZ, I can definitely state (as most everyone else has) the LSD is worth the $$.

As suspected (and stated by many), lateral power along with entry/exit control is FAR more predictable...adding confidence through the twisties (perhaps foolishly)

My opinion, anyone planning on exceeding 450whp MUST invest in one....whether M-Performance or 3rd party. If you plan on keeping the car, you gotta have one. . . 🍻

Very curious about this...

I'm looking at adding a CF performance lip to my EBII 340 and am trying to decide between painting vs. leaving plain CF. Is the shop you used in Albuquerque? If so, which one? If not, would you be willing to let my shop talk to your shop about the painting process?

Thanks much!

Since you didn't specify which tune, I'll assume you have the "Sport Tuner" which is the easier install of the two. Box is plugged in between TMAP and factory TMAP plug


1. Disconnect Neg. terminal on battery (DO NOT CLOSE TRUNK!!)

2. Locate TMAP sensor on your charge pipe (tuner is plugged in here)

3. Unplug tuner from TMAP & Factory plug

4. Replug factory plug back into TMAP

5. Reconnect battery Neg terminal


Dinan instructions HERE

Definitely going...depending on how quickly Cary can get a tune turned around will determine whether I'm a spectator or participant .

If there's any local guys going, PM me so we can meet up and convoy down
