Persian sent you a PM.

Also dude bad news again! So I was driving on the 91 freeway when all of a sudden some huge object from the OTHER SIDE of the freeway comes flying towards my car and it hits my CF roof really hard. As I was driving back home I was crossing my fingers that nothing happened. When I got home I saw 2 pretty deep chips on the top of my cf roof!!!! It sucks because I can't even repair that, or can you repair chips in carbon fiber?

But I won't

It's a step by step process... research... decided what you want... then later decided if you will actually do it or not.,

Knowing me though... by summer I'd prly do it as my birthday is in May

was looking at an x pipe for a bit, but don't wanna cut my stocks..

been looking at a few slip-on cat backs, but pricing is ridiculous IMO.

went up to royal muffler to see if they can just swap the tips out as that's my main gripe about the OEM exhaust, but not much room to work with the OEM design...

so I'm kinda at a stand still...

like you, research, decide if I really want it, research...

I do like the akra slip on tho as it seems to have the best value retention...

Like you, I think I'll stay stock for a bit...

But don't buy a product expecting to make much of your money back

car parts aren't investments

true on all points..funny as the vanguard is actually very well priced right now from pyspeed...tempting as well and drone/noise reports are positive with that set up. for a ti exhaust, i was quoted around the same as a BNIB eis sport setup, even better than with some vendor eis quotes...

i was looking into the bastuck exhaust as well, but they seem to make a one size fits all for all e9x models, and i'm not into getting a diffuser to make the tips sit right nor do I want to hack a brand axle back tog et it to sit right...and I was surprised at the price considering it's a non ti system...

haha...glad you like it, also glad you were able to meet up with my bro to get some coding done, so have you decided on AE's yet? You had my bro code the corner bulb and led bulb delete also right...heard Center could not fix your NAV tho, what's up with that? All good now or still busted?

BTW: looks like people are trying to figure out how to code/change the speed lock for the vert's and the top down feature...
