I installed replica F80 M3 paddle shifters tonight. It took me 3 hours to get the airbag off.

Very happy with the build quality and how they look!

Had the resonator deleted today at Henry's Muffler! Sounds great.

Seeing as they are directional tires, first thing i'd do is flip the tires on the wheels and rotate sides, then get an alignment. Stock rear suspension already has about -1.5 camber (could be more or less, dont remember the spec), lowering the car increases that.

Had new rear tires mounted today, and the alignment is perfect!

Went with 275/35R19

Nice! Did you see what the spec is for the rear camber stock?

PS: with such wide tires, are you even able to break traction in the rears?

I'll have to check the sheet they gave me. And it's much harder to get the tires to spin now, haha. I'll take it

I'd imagine so being 20mm wider than my 255's, did the resonator delete make a noticeable difference? I just installed the active autowerke axle back and find its not very loud, already deleted the second cat, running stock DP and the stock resonator.

Yea it was a noticeable increase in volume, burbles and turbo whistle. I love it paired with my catless DP and Magnaflow axleback.

Haven't given an update in a while!

I recently installed:

- BMW rubber floormats
- Paint-matched bumper reflectors
- Stage 2 tune by Bimmer Performance Center

New dyno: 243 RWHP and 327 ft-lbs of torque!
