Are you going to get the ASR Scoops? To go along with your Gruppe M (That extra $350 bucks will give you power on that $3000 pipe(s) that didnt do shit all)

I just talked to Rob@UUC. he said he couldnt give me ETA could be a week or a month. it's still under development and the effort is to get a perfect shifter position ergonomically.
Stock knob/boot will still be used, and will keep illuminating.
he said they had a prototype that requires taking out the exhaust, but it seems that we can get around that and not have to take out the exhaust to install it.
he also told me to sign up for the mailing list. they will email us once the product is finalized and ready.

well let's see if they come through. by the way if we have options then decision will be made based on throw % reduction, i know UUC's shifter can be adjusted to the height that i want. that's a good feature, but then i have no info on AA's yet. let's wait and see. competition brings us better products

for the record, i emailed AA and PM'd them with questions. im hoping they get back to me

I spoke to AA about half an hour ago, this is what I got:

-It will work with stock knob and will continue to illuminate
-It will be ready to ship on Tuesday
-Throws are 30% shorter
-Knob will sit slightly lower then stock (thank god)
-Introductory price is $350 plus shipping

Mantis, do those answer any of the questions you sent to them?

The knob will sit lower in the boot, only slightly. but i think that is perfect!
on my E46 330, I bought B&M and it sat so perfectly in the boot, not all tall and big and lanky looking!

AE ? Not familiar with it...wheels make the biggest difference, it is what will differentiate your M3 from all the others out there.

Why don't you wanna deal with lowering? no big deal, couple hours at a shop!

AE is autobahn exotics, they're big in Audi, getting into BMW's.

i was playing with a E46 M3 with Eisenmann race the other night. man sounds sooo sweet. i want one now, how do u like urs? drone? what's it like at low RPM's?

i dont want to lower coz i hate the feel of springs, i dont want coilovers and remove my EDC, and the fact that the car feels so perfect and good right now + i wish i dont have to spend money on the car

I wouldn't even compare the E46 M3 w/ Eisenmann tone to that of the E9x M3w/ Eisenmann. 6 cyl vs 8 cyl and completely different technology!
I LOVE it, its incredible - sounds perfect!! I have race, so its a bit louder and theres very minimal drone at low RPM's. Doesn't bother me one bit.
If your worried about loudness/drone then go with Sport and you won't be dissapointed.

As for lowering, honestly I didn't feel such a difference . I mean the difference is there, but in no way is it a bad different! I didn't do coilovers because of EDC aswell, but Im amazed with how well the H&R Springs ride!
BTW, how old are ya?

I don't see the need for it. Unlike the E46, stock seems fine to me, at least after a few thousand miles.
