DCT tune
Dinan mid pipe
Dinan exhaust

Nice car. Only critique I'd have is that 20s may be a bit large for the m3.. I think 19s are the optimum size.

What type of diffuser is that?

Absolutely gorgeous, OP ... 2 questions when you get a chance to drive her a bit:

(1) How's the ride comfort with 20's?
(2) White Brembo's difficult to keep clean?

Ride is pretty good. 245/30 285/30.
White brembos aren't any more difficult then yellow or red to keep clean

Might be ok if he uses Michelin PSS. They hook very well in most conditions.
