I'm still content with my factory non-ZCP 19"s and slightly higher ride height. However, I must say that damn M Performance Exhaust is weighing on my mind every day. Probably going to cave in the next couple months, and if I hear it in person it will likely be sooner.
There was no claimed increase in performance. JC even says there was absolutely no difference. His hangup was the price, which, is much cheaper than he quoted, in the states. Especially if you get the wholesale price...like many of us did.
So...it really boils down to whether you want the wheels and ride height. To me...at 65K+...$2275 was a drop in the bucket.
