Great opportunity to practice skid and drift control, without much wear and tear on your tires or suspension, and minimal risk (start in an open parking lot until you have the skills to play on streets with there are obstacles not too far away on the sides). I was out on Saturday and Sunday in my E90M3.

Mine is covered with road grime. I bought it to drive, not preserve in the garage for the next owner. I'll take it to the car wash this week.

Saw a Silverstone E92 M heading 93 South crossing 495. I tried catching up to it in my winter beater but that was a total fail lol

I drove mine today....Im getting rid of my garage on March 1st, as I will be moving in April back to Michigan. Im hoping to get enough milage on it prior to the end of March to get my next oil change! Just over 1000 miles if I read the screen right.

I ended up going with VF. I liked the ability to easily upgrade and I have owned their kits in the past on an RS4 I owned prior.

Just wanted to be a little different and the price was tough to beat at the time

I hope so. I'd love to hear some more exhausts in person. Hopefully it lands on a weekend where I am free...

I couldn't be more happier with it. Not only did I save a few thousand bucks, but it's exactly what I needed when I got it. Before I made the decision to go ACM, I was thinking of buying a Meisterschaft GT2. I decided to try the ACM first before going that route.

Tons of threads out there with videos on how it sounds. I say if you want to save some money, go for it.
