Headed out to Brands Hatch today for a BMW event. Running 260Ms instead of 219Ms and PSS' instead of PS2s.

how did you think the PSS compared to the PS2's? in my view the PSS much better with alot less wear.

Hard to be objective in way bc the PSS' have a higher load rating (97 & 101) compared to the OEM PS2s that came with the car but they definitely performed well!

I had a blast at the Autodrome. It was between that or Brands Hatch, but I really wanted to try a track prepped M3. Went to Brands Hatch for the DTM race though.
Forgot to reply back post the mod, so did the swap out for a F10 M5 gearknob and have to agree with you, has made a pretty average feeling 6MT into something alot more enjoyable

Glad to hear it! I've replaced the knobs on all my BMW's with the ZHP one and it's truly amazing what HUGE difference it makes. Especially when you consider that it only costs $60 (didn't care that it didn't light up). A no brainer in my opinion.

Car is looking great

Nice start! Do they adjust the footwell to reflect RHD? I remember feeling a bit cramped in a RHD 1 series, I had hoped it was adjusted in the bigger cars.

Thx! Regarding your Q not sure to be honest, yet to drive a LHD E9X M3 but you'd hope one would not be more squashy than the other!
