No EDC but seems firm enough for me going into turns. I think EDC would stiffen it even more but too late now! No intention to lower the car anymore otherwise, I cannot get into my garage

I am thinking of changing the exhaust though. Will probably go with Active Autowerke.

You should check youtube..search around
There are people will Ericsson on it already..it sounds nice..just that..TI -->Crack...makes me wonder...(Its not cheap too)

I have EDC on mine...I have set it all the way hardest..it feels like porsche sports damp..you don't bounce when you're on an uneven surface...but gives you a very nice street damper....

Lowering it..will sure give you're ride a meaner look..but you will kill your ride comfort....plus you need those space for rebounce..... lol...will a 20 help you fill the space out??

Has anyone locally install rpi scoops yet? I have one but I haven't get it install...lol..all I did was changed to matt black grills...

Does anyone know where I can get RE30 LE's? I want those bad...

I was thinking about Remus for sometime...does active autowerk gives you the full pipe? or you still need to cut the OEM mufflers out?

The thing is I don't want to cut my pipes out to fit mufflers...since i want to keep my OEM set just in case if I need to swap those back in...

Have you install you're things yet??

AA exhaust is full bolt on replacement, no cutting, which is an attraction since I can change back to factory exhaust if I don't like it.

hmmm...then I'm still 50/50 on the Ti's...coz Ericsson that complete exhuast wth pipes is a very very good choice for me to pick up......I know most JDM one's that I saw and read...has rarely seen crack.....so must be confuse to why peope here say it will crack...

hmmm......I'm holding on my thoughts for now....I will wait more respones before I put my money on it...

So far I came across to forum members with that setup ....hope to see more soon....

Yes that's a very cool steering wheel, my friend installed it and still have to go back to the dealership to get it programmed(cause only their computer can do it).
BTW, I am in Hong Kong now, have not seem an M3 yet.

Nice mod. Should be easy to DIY yourself but may need a GT1 computer to do some reset on the DME.

Well I got bot Gruppe M intake + Amuse Ericsson exhaust from Top Racing, well to be truth i didn't shop around but their price are cheaper than buying in US. I just got my Gruppe M intake install, and my Ericsson Ti exhaust arrive but they are not able to install it because the end of the exhaust on the oem is different, so I need to install the buy the front ti pipe also(not the ti header) so i'm still waiting on that, but i love my Gruppe M it is very nice, the sound of it is much meaner, and also about the performance steering wheel, once you find a place that will install it for you tell me, or try this, call the service manager Frankie Tang in Shatin, he was the one helped me out with the new software for DCT and he did me a favor when i order my M3 i ask that they can only tow the car from the port to their service center, so when i got my car, i only have 10km on it, so try contacting him, he is nice better than those useless FxxK in Kwoloon, they sucks and have bad manners. Because i want to get that wheel also but only worry about installation. Good luck to you

I'm working out with Top Racing as well to see what they can do...

My sales never worked out at all...like even your parts are from US/Euro...we will NOT install them...i was like wtf...i got it right off from tunermotorsport that directly got it off from official BMW...

so i'm going for top racing...and asking them to see what they can do..coz i got it cheap before the crisis and the dollar and euro gap...

so how much they charge you fro the whole ericsson pipe and exhasut? what's the wait time on them?
