My Build Thread (Akrapovic, ESS VT2-625, HRE) ***SOLD 8/13/2016***

***OFFICIALLY SOLD ON 8/13/2016 ***

Hey guy's i've owned this car since March and i figured that i'd start my build thread before things take get more serious!

March 2015

Picked up my car, then shortly after i got the LCI tails




May 2015

Figured i had it stock for long enough and pulled the trigger on the Akrapovic GT4 system as well as BPM sport stage 2 and dct software





August 2015

ESS VT2-625 kit ordered as well as WPC coated bearings + ARP bolts. I also had unbearable wheel itch so i bought a set of HRE P43's off of a member. Ordered some swift spec-r springs that should be here later this week!





Supercharger Build

Dropped the car off 8/31 to get the rod bearings + SC + springs installed! I can't wait to pick it up on Friday!







Check out the factory engine mount these are definitely being replaced!



Here are the rod bearings after 67k miles! As you can see as you get closer to cyl #8 things get bad. Shop said the top rod bearings were donezo!





September 2015

The Project is all done (for now...) and this is currently how she looks now! Still breaking her in a little bit, but holy shit is she a beast now!

Here's a little promo video they shot for my car:










September 2015 ***UPDATE***

So on 9/25 i had a tire blowout on my way to work which knicked one of the wheels and made me ultimately decide to re-powder coat all 4 wheels...





October 2015

I couldn't decide what color/finish i wanted to go with but i finally narrowed it down and got them back and mounted with two fresh Michelin PSS tires!






February 2016

Finally after waiting about a few months everything is here!





March 2016

Bodyshop sent over some pics, everything should be done in 1-3 days!





Annnd... She's home!!! Sorry for the crappy pics guys, you'll have to wait till i get my Sony A7 on saturday, but for now...





JUNE 2016

Well it was finally time for new brakes, rather than dropping a couple grand on a BBK that wouldn't ever be utilized i decided to go with ECS's 2 piece front + rear rotors as well as Hawk HPS pads!





After everything was done and installed the shop wanted to take a few pics of the car in it's entirety... ENJOY!

Oh wow, you don't mess around when it comes to mods! I'm sure you'll have a completely different beast once you get it back. Enjoy it in good health!

Clean looking M. I appreciate that you have had very nice cars in the past which are all tastefully modified. (Especially a Gti which isn't aired out or 'stanced')

Great start! I'm sure it'll be a whole different car after the S/C. Nice S4 as well, I also came from a B8.

You were only 2 months stock and then got bored ! wow. I have been stock for 2 years and then started modding.

I remember one of your posts, when you were debating to keep 335is or trade it in for M3 just right after you bought 335is

Nice mods.

HRE's are fantastic but I liked your stock 18's better. Great sleeper look.

you will not be sorry. i completely transforms the car into another animal.

i too had the oem 18s and absolutely loved them, the only reason i changed is because the 9.5/265s can't put the power down to the street.
