FINALLY was able to get get a used Corsa exhaust. Was able to pick it up locally as well. Purchased from Black_Gator A++ would do business again.


Already got new matte black tips to weld onto the Corsa exhaust. It's all coming together.
Where did you get those tips from?

Finally decided to do preventative :WPC Bearings with ARP bolts @ 94,XXX mileage on my M. Shout out to Dixon Motorsports in Wixom, Michigan. Yes, I drove 3 hours from Ohio to have them take care of the Rod Bearings!! Dropped off Monday morning and just picked it up Tuesday afternoon. Very professional from the beginning to the end!!! I highly recommend anyone who needs their rod bearings done to definitely give them a call. My OEM bearings looks great due to MOI taking great pride on proper oil change every 5k intervals and also proper warm up!!! �� trust me when I say I drive my M to The limit!!! Bouncing the needle of the redline!!! Happy Motoring!!

what did the shop say about the bearings?

They don't really look good for the tin/aluminum bearings from my view. Maybe you're just used to seeing the copper/lead which have a more dramatic look when worn.
