The main reason I got that option was due to the screen location as in the screen's closer to the windshield so less time off the road & safer especially for that split-second if a vehicle (in front of u) swerves and/or brakes outta nowhere. The Kenwood/Garmin headunit I have in my daily driver's better than the BMW oem NAV or any other oem NAV I've used (Mercedes, Lexus, Audi & Infiniti) since the GPS is more accurate, has text-to-speech & the ability to watch movies from the dvd player & iPod while the car's in motion (for my passengers) with a no-cost simple mod.

The quietness of the stock exhaust was frustrating for me. I just had to have that adrenaline pumping exhaust note.

Agreed!

I hear ya... but that's one of the main things I do like about it, the location. iDrive screen annoys me especially at night when you always have that light out of the corner of your eye while trying to look out the windshield. Obviously you have to be smart about it though and you can't be typing addresses and programming locations while driving 75 down the highway. But the screen is big enough and is aimed up right at the driver so a quick glance easily gives you all the info you need while following a map, or answering the phone or changing music. I do suggest having a co-pilot or pulling over if you want to do complicated tasks on it.

As far as done side is, as long as you do it right the first time. You shouldn't have any negative affects. I have two BMWs now and here in Germany I feel spoiled, because they know what they are doing. Once I get back stateside I will start to feel the negative affects of dealerships incompetences......I've had springs and spacers too include an alignment done by BMW they weren't happy when they were done the first time and they did it again to ensure the customer was happy to include themselves.

I had pulleys put in the same time I had my light flywheel and M3/M5 hybrid clutch installed in my 325i....knock on wood not problems thus far, none, not even noise.

I feel the other guys on the M3 I really want the exhaust, I only put 4000 miles on my M since I picked her up at the end of June and I do too feel like it needs a little more grunt from the exhaust, I love the way it explodes and just wish there was a bit more of exhaust. my 2 cents.....everyone continue to love your cars and drive them until the muthaFin tires fall off!!
