I like the sounds that S65 makes more than the exhaust noises.

ITB's are a really under discussed part of this car's character.

I also won't be doing RB pro-actively. It doesn't make sense looking at the big picture statistics. Even if the failure rate is 2-3% spending 2500 probably isn't worth it outside of peace of mind...

That's why I changed mine out: peace of mind. Then after taking out the originals, I find that they are grossly under-worn in comparison to what I've seen on the forum. D'oh!

I think they look horrific on the F8x, even worse on the M2, but great on the e9x

I think the steel roof on non-sunroof E90s looks cheap

Interesting opinion. Because you correlate this to budget cars that donít have sunroofs? To me sunroof or not has nothing to do with that.

yes, particularly on white cars it looks like something's missing - the f80 with CF roof looks much better to me

F8X beats the E9X hands-down in every way imaginable.
The E9X is slow.
The E9X looks sooo dated.
Stock E9X brakes are excellent.
ZCP stance is perfect from the factory.
Painting over orange reflectors is silly and looks cheap.
Young, new owners of 2nd/3rd hand E9Xs have no idea of the pain they're in for.
Non OEM after market replica parts don't fool the discerning eye.

intentional burble/crackle exhaust sound is played out, annoying, and sounds cheap at this point

A bit off topic, are you also on Audizine under the name Shimmy?

I like flashy engine parts that don't give much in power gains. eg. Carbon fiber engine covers, intakes, dress up, etc..
