Corner balance, more camber and sway bar links adjusted by the great folks at West End Alignment in Gardena, CA. If in socal, can't recommend these guys enough.

Ready for my first auto-x with the coilovers installed.

Had new tpms installed on my tires, since the old ones were programmed for my 328i. No more flashing lights and warnings lol

Finally got rid of the Dealer frame on the license plate... add BMW logo to my cup holders even though you can't really see them unless your right on top of them...lol...

Also fitted Wings on the front fascia before I paint them color matching to body paint... bummer part is Passenger side fit great... Driver side had 1/8" gap on one-side... got them from Hong Kong... $60... might cut notches on the back and use the heat gun to conform them... probably will end up warping it worse than it is...

But I really really do think they look cool once they get painted... really updates the fascia...

New to the forum

I picked her up for the dealer on 10/19, and my buddy's shop tinted her on 10/20. Nano ceramic 20% all around.





My 1st time using that tint. Usually I just went with carbon, but my friend convinced me to go w/ nano ceramic (because he was going to charge me for the price of carbon) I do actually notice the sun rejection though.

Tomorrow I scoop up 403M's and then the 397's will turn into winter wheels! I'll swap the 403M's and hope for a couple of weeks here in New England, before having to winterize!

There are plenty of reports on the internet. All traceable to cheap materials and inadeqaute attachment.







Never underestimate aerodynamic forces! Imagine what happens when a piece of your spoiler breaks off by say 160 km/h and gets in your tire..... or into the car behind you.
Guys this is fearporn.

Step 1: install properly
Step 2: inspect occasionally as you do with all parts/angles of your car

Fearporn led to a few legal cases in Germany in the recent years. All had one thing in common - cheap, aftermarket splitters (front-spoilers).
Just FYI.

Changed the Diesel fuel filter, and gave it a good bath and interior cleaning.

Earlier this week I relocated the now superfluous “cup holder” led to illuminate the center channel, for shhhs n giggles.

With a trip to Scott Louisiana looming ahead I finally migrated my six head ALP system over to the F31 this past weekend.

2 RX, 1 TX front. 2 RX, 1 TX rear. Controller in the convenience tray

We'll be testing it against the ProLaser 3, Truspeed, Stalker RLR and the DragonEye this weekend.
