Haven't driven it in forever, but one of my favorite sections of road. Didn't watch the whole vid, but too much power for that road overall.

Tom,

How would you rate this setup on a stock M3? In comparison to the full akro evo?

That was a typo, we used the Akrapovic Evolution Exhaust system in the video.

Going full catless on the Akra EVO is a bit loud in the interior cabin area, we typically save this particular setup for track sessions.

Completely agree. Most times, even the radio remains off when daily driving.

Just watched the installation video at http://www.europeanautosource.com/pr...-system-e9x-m3 -- it looks like the air filter is placed inside one of the side air ducts of the front bumper. Doesn't that obstruct cooling to that wheel's brakes, and perhaps worse, result in one wheel's brakes getting less cooling than the other, which would in turn cause the car to rotate under heavy braking after a while?

I'd also be curious in the more toned-down supercharger option. Not sure I'd be able to live with full catless on my car since it's a DD, and I'd like something that would pass emissions etc -- would the VF540 work with those requirements? Tom@EAS mentioned it was coming soon in a post from mid-December, but I still can't find any info on it. Is it still not ready?
