Haven't done an update in awhile, this update is mostly interior stuff.

-OEM 6wb retrofit from Bimmertech: Link
-M Performance Pedals: Link
-Silver hex/Blue Trim
- AutoTecknic Red start button: Link
-Aluminum start button overlay
-M3 Steering wheel trim and paddles

Was pretty stoked when the 6wb retrofit became a possibility, I actually ordered this around black friday because Bimmertech had a coupon code up (10% or 15% i forgot). Got the cluster and install was super easy.. just 2 screws and unplug/replug.
Pedals were an easy install too, just needed the right tools (titanium drill bits) to drill through the steel pedal.
I had the silver hex/black trim but always wanted the blue one, found a set on here and scooped it up right away at a good price.
Red start button/aluminum overlay seems to be the new thing.. grabbed them on ebay for less than 30 for both, looks good and stands out!

I'm jealous of your 6WB! I was thinking HARD about getting that. Were you able to sell your old cluster?

Not selling it, going to keep it just in case the dealer needs to update something.

I'm sure the amount i'd get for it is minimal anyways.

Nice! Glad you could post the data!

If you use my stock dyno runs as a reference you got the advertised 40hp and 60lb-ft gains.

143hp, 217lb-ft on Mustang dyno


148hp on Dynojet

An update to the exterior!

-3D Design Front Lip: Link
-3D Design Rear Roof Spoiler: Link
-Studie AG Trunk Badge: Link
-Studie AG Door Projectors: Link
-IKON Motorsports DP Style Lip: Link
-Gazp Rear bumper extensions: Link

Decided to do some updates to the exterior, was kind of sick of seeing M-Performance lips everywhere, and I wanted to make the car more JDM. I still think I'm the only F30/F31 in the USA with an authentic 3D Design lip, let me know if that isn't true. I went with the 3D design lip since it's very unique, and I wanted the painted lip look, it's also urethane so I don't have to worry about scraping it. The 3D roof spoiler was a no brainer, easily the best roof spoiler for the F31 (in my opinion). Added a couple of JDM fanboy mods, totally useless stuff but since I love Studie and their style, I decided to run these parts for this build. I got the Gazp bumper extensions, and I really like the subtle clean look of it, but adding it made the front lip look a little weird without a splitter, after doing some research.. I found out that the Ikon lip fits perfectly under my 3D Design lip! Here are some pics:
