We can't get enough of BMWs here, and this E90 M3 is definitely no exception:

- Vorsteiner rear diffuser
- Akrapovic titanium slip on exhaust

A customer came in on last week and had us upgrade his entire iDrive UI to the most current version, including the navigation, maps, iDrive knob, center console and misc trim pieces. Installation was as smooth as butter since the whole kit came with the necessary harnesses, wires, cables.

Busy day today tending to this drop top beauty:

- LCI tail light upgrade
- LUX angel eyes
- KW sleeve over kit
- Competition wheels painted black with Michelin tires
- Akrapovic slip on exhaust with carbon fiber tips
- Painted reflectors
- Matte black kidney grilles
- Misc coding

Sounds like a lot of things, which it is, but the end results retain a very subtle beast that not only looks and sounds good, but does all of that with the top down - a bonus for great weather such as today.

Hi flipm3 - the HEX flash tune (from VF Engineering) is basically a reflash of the stock/OEM program. It raises hp/torque while removing the speed limit governor.
