recent mods are BPM tune, tint, and LCI style LED tail lights.

Have some scoops i still need to install, and need to order test pipes sooner than later.

Had a random coolant hose leak recently that goes around the back of the engine. Luckily I know a BMW mechanic that fixed it for $250 instead of $1400 at the dealership.

How do you like the Megan? I need to hear it sometime. The only money I've spent on my M in the 8 months I've had it is on a liter of oil, Benvo tune (still love it), and brake pads for the track that I have yet to install.

^You'll be driving about 18 days a year in that case. haha Most of us here have a 20 D.A.Y. car. Days A Year. The 997 would be a great choice though.

We can always look forward to the future. I would settle for a 997 GT3. Couple of more promotions.

What a huge difference... the car feels PLANTED!! and turn in so sharp.. I can't wait to get on the track with these.. I have -2.5 camber upfront and -2 at the rear...

Also got Mike Benvo to code away my errors and while he was it he also added Euro MDM ... can't wait to get on the track with this...

yay for Euro MDM! It's so much better. Just be aware on the street that it could get you a little too close to walls and other cars so leave some room for error at first.

How's the ride quality on the KWs?
