^ Ain't that the Truth! Then add in 4 kids with their own hobbies!

OP: I have an open relationship with my SA and Dealer. M3 goes to them alot for service. I'm sure if my Engine or DCT blew BMWNA would probably say the SC had involvement.

As for Gauges: Stack - Oil Pressure, Water Temp, DCT Trans Temp

Yeah, I figure I'll just be open about it and hopefully everything works out well.

Now you have me trying to pick three between oil pressure, water temp, boost, and DCT temp... Since there's a few weeks lead time on the ESS kit, I prob have a a little bit to decide.

I would go oil, water, dct, and put the boost gauge under the hood. The former are important on the road, the boost gauge has no real value outside of testing. Its interesting to watch for a while but soon enough I at least found I never looked at it.

Yes if you want to be charged for something that could otherwise be covered under warranty or service.
