BBS LM and Eisenmann Race

Took some basic pics...hopefully with the LM's and Eisenmann I'm cool enough to hang now. =)



Anyway, was going to play with ride height, but think the wheels hide the gap well enough. What's the opinion here?



Also, I was going to go with a custom cat-back to spare the OEM system, but after chatting with the Kirk (@Kinney's) - the cost to benefit ratio really isn't there. Not to mention, BMW did a really good job with the OE exhaust piping - smooth bends and hydro-formed... BTW, the 'race' note is A.W.E.S.O.M.E. - especially under load. If anyone wants to hear, just let me know...I'll be glad to demonstrate!



Thanks!

-Rich

For sure, jsut let me know when. As for the plate frame, 2005 was a painful year...but trust me, 'SC has been through worse...losing to TCU was gawd-awful in '99 (yep, I'm an older alum). That said, we're looking pretty good for Nat'l Championship #12!!!

No, I went with Kinney's out in Bedford - they did a couple of my other car's so I knew what I was going into. Thanks for the reference though!

Thanks! Great sound...

Out of curiosity, there was a bit of 'blemish' on the back side of the driver's side muffler. Because it's under the car and completely out of sight, no worries on my part...but thought you may want to know.

+32mm front and +25mm rear...yeah, it's a maybe on spacers and lowering. Though the pictures don't show it (maybe they do), but it's really the front that needs a push out...I have a bit of negative that make the rears look 'ok' as-is. Trying to avoid going to aggressive because frankly, I'm cheap! Maybe for Christmas I'll do the spacers...not to mention I still have to get the OE TPMS to work!

Yep, SoCal...so you Irish? If so, I'm so sorry...you're going through a spell like we did with Paul Hackett. Though I think Davies and Willingham did more for your program than they get credit for. Either way, I respect ND - I just plain hate fUCLA...

Thanks!

Looking good Rich! IMHO, rear gap looks ok but fronts too big. Time for a rear cf diffusor! When am I gonna hear that badboy exhaust in person?!?

Plano...actually, if I think you are who I think you are, then I've seen you around Shops of Legacy a few times...well, at least the AW E92 M3 you're in.

Anyway, let me know when - if you are in that area, I can prolly swing by around lunch or just after work.
