Not sure that he is offical dealer of Rays, but I bought couple set of Rays wheels from Eric and again, they came on time (for my track use). And the one that I am ordering for my M3 is from Rays also.

It took about 4 weeks (Wheelink said 3-4 weeks before I order) for the Gruppe M intake. While I am waiting, I did check with Gruppe M on-line and they said waiting time is 6 weeks due to the long back order list right now; I will suggest you check with whoever you buy from for how long you have to wait before you place the order.
I ordered the TE37 20" for my M-3 and is waiting for Rays to put it on production line which is scheduled at September.
Just for your info., IF you decided to get to Wheelink, you can talk to Eric and my name is Anthony (from Toronto), he is my high school friend since.

Is Gruppe M really that good for it's price ?? It does looks good indeed esp. the Cabon/Kevlar finish but performance is none......why don't you keep the stock airbox in and wait for something that acturally work ?? just my .2 as i've owned and heard too much about Gruppe M

Yeah you might be correct, although the performance gain isn't that much, the sounds of the intake/ exhaust are very ncie.

moreover, the weight of the exhaust are much lighter then the stock one, and i can feel the respond is actually quicker then b4.

Worth it or not, depends on yourself.

Like what people said, why spending 1.3 mil on M3, instead of 1 mil GTR which actually faster?? same question

I am interested in changing exhaust for my E90 M3, but I am very particular about the sound. Do you think you can do a sound recording or a you tube of your car and the exhaust sound it makes in idle and in throttle? I've looked at other forums and in the US, the Active Autowerke exhaust is coming out and they claim quite a bit of bhp gain, so not sure about the Gruppe M one.

My wheels are being changed to HRE Monoblok P43, textured black, as we speak so can't wait. Just need to get the right exhaust note and I will be happy.

Don't think they have E90 m3 type yet. I heard if you use the e92 m3 ones, the title will stick out...

If you're looking for Gruppe M or other mufflers sound recording...check youtube...they have tons out there for you to hear from it

Hey laicsomo...good to hear that you got your car...mine is back to them on monday coz I was the unlucky one to have the DCT "LOOSE POWER" issue...so I have to get a check up on that...

About shops...I dunno either...i was thinking to ask a shop in wanchi...the one that carries the matte black tuned 430...but not sure if they do simple installations...

I still have my performance wheel sitting at my home...I need to install that for sure..~

Hi Han

Cxxpro are fu*king crocks, not only do they rip peoples off but they sell used stuff and pretend they are new, about the software, i came to the forum also to tell you guys, the BMW guys receive the CD already for the software upgrade, I have also have the powerloss issues( touch wood, only once) but i hope they get it fix or else it is very dangerous.

The performance is very nice but are you sure it will work with DCT, currently i'm very happy with the M3 wheel, it is thick, it gives you great comfort,as comparsion to R35, the M3 wheel is much better IMHO.

Is the Performance wheel the same except with display and gadgets, also where are you going to get that install???

Laicosmo..thanks for the heads up...i came across it twice when i ran down from peak to central..and my engine/tranmission light was up....lucky..they have the cd for the upgrade..or else I will be drop dead....

performance wheel...im going to pass it over to bmw to have them install...lucky i got mine just before the euro's jumped up..i got mine under 1k USD Express mail ...which is very good price compare to now...

it seems HKG Bmw should have these..but as you know..they are slow as hell to get anything...even my dam dvd nav needs like a month or something to get it to me....

anyone can offer me a copy of it..just for me to try my gps out ??

I also got mine when I received my car. Works OK but actually quite difficult to use as you cannot input actual address, just general location and cross street.
