Talking DIY ESS VT2-625 Kit - Early Christmas!!!

So Christmas came early and I helped expedite it.

ESS VT2-625 Kit installed DIY style. First I have to send out serious thanks to Sal, Tommy and the whole AutoCouture Motoring shop, Roman and Jason from ESS Tuning (Roman: Wow, You were Santa Claus), and Tom G from EAS. I can not describe how much help they all provided. Seriously F*n Priceless. Thank you.

So now to the DIY part.... NOT EASY. I give mad respect to BMW Mechanics. My fingers and my back are killing me, lol.

Nice job. Whenever I do something like that I always end up with extra screws and stuff. Have fun, and don't embarass too many Porsches

Would you do it again knowing what you know now? Good job on the DIY. Love it when people work on their own cars.
