That's exactly what I'm waiting for. Can't understand how there are already companies making kits for the 1M and still nobody has a full kit for the M3. I'm going to wait the rest of this year, but next Spring I'm just going to bite the bullet and buy BBK front and rear and stop worrying about it. Thanks BMW!

Cool, good to see it works. I never tried that number myself so I had no idea if it would work.
