Further out on the horizon i'm considering ESS and Brembo.

So, in short - NO. I'm definitely not done with the MODS. haha. Once work dies down a bit, I'll get right back into full force modding and update this with the latest pictures .

Great to hear. Just wanted to make sure you hadn't forgotten about this thread and all your fans hah

Wow! I can't say enough about how beautiful Dakar Yellow is. Tasteful modifications have certainly taken this car to a new level. Well done.

So here's the story with that. EAS contracted a company called top-stitch to do a custom M-stitched DCT shift boot for me. After a long long long delay, top-stitch finally sent the shift boot out, and it was the most amateur stitching I had seen. They had left out a lot of the beautiful stitching detail that makes the M stitching so great. Not to mention their cross stitching was laughable.

Here are a few pics. The custom shift boot is on the bottom, as its being held up to the BMW M steering wheel for comparison. (Left and right just shows them in different focus, so you can see more detail)

Did you check out the shift and brake boots that IND has? They are OEM parts with tri-color stitching? I got mine last month and they are flawless.

Modification #18 - Macht Schnell Stage 2 Air Intake

It's been a lonnng time guys. But I'm back. And I wanted to update everyone on the latest mods to the car, after a long hiatus.

I stopped into EAS recently to pick up the newest Stage II Intake by Macht Schnell, which is supposedly good for about 10 hp. Price isn't exactly cheap at around 500 bucks, but when it comes to a naturally aspirated car, eeking out horsepower is like pulling teeth - painful and expensive.

For those who don't know the Stage II intake also comes with Air Scoops that plug in directly into the kidney grills directing oxygen more efficiently to the engine. Pics of that below.

Also while I was there, I had the guys at EAS replace my v3.0 Angel iBrights with the new v4.0's since the old one's were failing from time to time, evidently because of an inadequate heatsink on the v3's, which the v4's have since replaced with a better heat dispersal apparatus. So far so good, no failures on the v4, and they're ever-so-slightly brighter. Can't complain about that. Thanks Tom & EAS for making that swap with no hassle.


Anyway here are a few pics of the intake install. And a video of the dyno. Dyno results to be posted soon.

BEFORE



AFTER

once again, beautiful car. sounds amazing.

I have always been into the cosmetics and design of cars, but never really understood how everything works internally (performance mods etc.), and by the looks of it, you really know what you are doing.

Where can I learn how to do all of this and what it means?
I really want to learn how to do all of these mods etc. and how they make the car better.

Thanks so much!
