Suspension:

Well I decided to upgrade the suspension first to get that out of the way. I was extremely skeptical about messing with the EDC so I was going to go the safer route with springs... After doing a couple V3 installs in house I began considering going that route. Only problem was I did not want to eliminate the EDC feature. I spoke to TK about it and went for a nice test drive in his M with the coilovers and I was sold, it was going to be KW for me....(seriously if an Indy Car Driver thinks it works I should at least give it a try)... The car felt like it should have come this way from factory...honestly! Should be getting installed in the next day or two so I will share the after photos once they are available.

If you guys have any other questions regarding the V3 for your M feel free to shoot me a PM or email. Special M3Post Pricing also available







p.s. DHL - 1 , KW Box - 0

Can you still change the suspension settings via the EDC button with the V3's?

Performance Upgrades.

My first performance upgrade was going to be an exhaust system. I looked at all the options on the market and realized there were so many to choose from. After researching for a couple days I decided I wanted to go with a bolt on system to prevent cutting my factory exhaust. At this point I was able to narrow it down to only a few systems....It took me a little while to decide but I ended up going with an Active Autowerke Signature Exhaust system...why? This system eliminates the restrictive factory piping, increases HP, and its 100% 304 polished stainless steel. There is also a NCC which eliminates drone and fitment is perfect!!!!

I also wanted to upgrade the X pipe system... I have a close connection at AA that was able to get me some production pictures...He might even have pricing available later today..













I must say I am completely pleased with this system

p.s. Ilia from IND call me

Disclaimer: I am extremely biased towards AA and I am simple having fun with this thread!

Nope but the car drives better than a stock car. Come by and I will take you for a ride.

Wheels.

I had a certain look in mind and decided to go with a set of HRE's to complete the look.

Tires.

Over the years I have used several different tires and after hearing all the rave of late with the Nitto Invos I decided to order a set to go with the HRE's. I haven't been happier. The tires are quiet and perform great. I will provide more feedback after 1k miles.
