So irritated guys!! So my car has been at BMW for 4 days now just to get the damn inspection sticker. I have to swap my stock x pipe every year, which is becoming a huge pain in the ass.

I switched dealers from NORWOOD to Norwell, bc Norwell installed my SC.

They have had everything they need to flash the DME back and forth and get the Dinan x pipe back on the car.

They did not even do anything yesterday. Irritated because the one nice weekend I want to drive the car and now I won't have it period.

FYI the difference between a stock pipe and Dinan is night and day.

Car is embarrassingly quiet. I can hear the blower better, but that's about it.

I have heard Hondas with with a more aggressive sound! Even with the AA SIGNATURE axel back it is so quiet to me.

Just venting cause I want to drive the bloody thing

Honestly just move out of that congested area and a quieter car is much nicer than a "bees in a bag" Honda sound. As you get older you will not want that garbage sound unless you are driving a Ferrari or Lambo. Been there done that with my NSX, S2000, 350z, Z4MC, etc.

Inspection sticker like Hawaii? F that. Not worth my time. lol

Endless to each their own..I'm 32 and still love the sound..one of the many reasons I buy high performance cars. It was a joke about the Honda thing. I said it because it seemed so much quieter and it was. Certainly not upsetting the GF that's for sure.

Car went through 3 driving cycles and still not adapting to the code.

Oh well it was a beautiful day. Hit the golf course instead today. Not a bad round for the first time playing this year if any of you play

Giving you a hard time. lol I know it was. I am few years older.

I don't like overly loud cars. Some of the exhausts sound great on this car don't get me wrong. I just like quiet sometimes more.

Nice man! I still gotta get mine refinished, wanna get that first before putting them on there.

To clean them, use Sonax. To keep them clean, use armor wheel protectant

Took off my snow wheels last week and had new tires put on my summer wheels. Now running 265/35/18 and 285/35/18 PSS on the ARC8 18 x 9.5 and 10.5. So far, I like them, but have less than 200 miles on them and like to wait until I have driven tires several hundred miles before assessing them.

Sounds like fun. I work nearby, so I'd be interested assuming I can get out of work early enough...

So I still do not have the car back from trying to get an inspection sticker. The cars O2 sensors will not adapt to the car at all with this driving cycles.

The SC is VF. They have been great through the whole process from the beginning. Unfortunately they have never seen this happen so they are trying to replicate the problem.

So frustrating when the car is in as stock for as it can be and is having issues. When the Dinan x pipe is on I never have problems!

Stupid MA and these O2 sensor readiness files!!!

Thanks Endless I think will all this none sense I have been on edge for sure.

I just want that car out of there and I'm worried to see the bill for this that's for sure!

Everytime I go see the car I see another small scratch from someone rubbing up or looking at it too closely and I just did an entire paint correction on the car.

JMH is correct, Akrapovic with Polished Titanium Tips (standard are brushed finish). Also Challenge Engineering "Street" X-Pipe.

JMH we will miss you and the M5!!
