Smile Good things REALLY do come in 3s!

Firstly Happy New Year to everyone on the forum and hope that you have a fruitful year ahead.

Despite being bed bound with a bad fever yesterday over the last 36hrs, my dad's office-girl called to inform me this morning (6th Jan 2009) at an ungodly hour of 735am, to inform that there are 3 items due for declaration and delivery to my house.

Gosh, with the discover of so many items, vendors and websites, I almost FORGOT what the hell i ordered. Before 10am today, I am hoping to receive the following items and fit them by 430pm:
  1. Vorsteiner CF Front Lip
  2. AA Signature X-Pipes
  3. Camaross's Custom 8000k HID light

Unfortunately I don't have the pictures as yet, but i shall endeavor to get the up with any relevant video especially for my VORSTEINER Titanium Exhaust & X-pipe combo.

In advance, I just want to thank Mike Lam of Vorsteiner, Omar Murray from Active and Camaross for their patience and advice on technicals relating to my ///M's concern.

Happy New Year Again

You must post the video of Vorsteiner Ti and AA X-pipes ... I assume you just got racing pipes and not the HFC ...

I am confused.... Doesn't the Vorsteiner include an Xpipe? Are you only using the primary cat delete pipes from AA??

I think the X-pipe you were thinking off were the secondary link to the muffler section. (hope i got my terminology right) Your are correct. The AA X-pipes that I purchased are the CAT delete pipes without the HFC. AA had their reservations on recommending me the HFC because I can't track my ///M in town.

PART 1 - Active Autowerke X-pipes

Hi Guys,

Thanks for your humble congrats. I'm updating the thread and loading some pics from the garage via iPhone so sincere apologies if its not all that clear.

I got my gorgeous Active X-Pipes fully fitted onto my baby by 1030am. I have to say, Active have produced a stunning set of X-pipes that was worth hanging out and saving up for The AA X-pipes looked soo stunning that I was considering not installing them due to their beautiful workmanship and "new" shine

Lets just say that my once was purring kitten is now a god damn ROARING LION especially with the Vorsteiner Titanium combination. I just can't get enough.

God I sound like I'm going to be living up to the name "Mischief" for quite sometime. Here are some pics with some vids to follow soon

Before I forget, to the guys of Active Autowerke and especially Omar, thanks for your beautifully crafted piece of art and your awesome honest recommendation. You definitely will have me as a returning customer for future orders. Your TEAM has really put some serious R&D into the X-pipe and other products.

Comments are welcome...

Hehe... you are too funny mate! I will most definitely do a cabin sound clip for you and other to hear when I get the chance during the week.... with my radio off! (not that I ever use it much, unless my gf or mum is in the car)

Honestly speaking, the engine and exhaust note is amplified loud enough to put a MISCHIEVOUS smile on my face when i feather that throttle. I am proud to admit there is no cabin droning at all, which was one of my prioritized concerns during cruising.

Cabin noise levels in the car has gone up approximately by 25% which isn't much until you slam your foot down to make that magical V8 scream off its tits.

I LOVE MY X-Pipe & Vorsteiner Combo!


Ps: I'm posting up a temporary VID take at home! I'll be doing some decent photo-shoots and footage with local car blogist and magazine over the weekend and will definitely post up for all to comment and critique.

Talking Part 2 - Vorsteiner CF Lip & AA/Vorsteiner Exhaust Video

After fitting my much prized AA X-pipe @ 1030am today, I whisked down to my local BMW Garage @ 1:30pm. My Service Manager, was kind enough to fit my Vorsteiner CF Lip FOC while is sat in the M lounge to have a coffee and watch the football re-run. All this done in 35min inclusive of wait time for silicone to set Just when I thought my day couldn't get any better, I was flagged down by the receptionist otw to my car to collect my one month belated B'day present (BMW F1 pen, ///M Logo Tie Pin and BMW Motor-sports key neck tie) from BMW.

Before I forget, I've included two stationary clips of the before and after comparison of the stock vs AA X-Pipes complimenting my current Vorsteiner Titanium Exhaust. I SHALL get cabin and drive by vids done over weekend

Before - Vorsteiner + Stock X / Mid pipes


After - Vorsteiner + AA X-pipes


Feel free to comment...
