Doesn't it also manage engine torque output during shifts? I seem to recall that's part of the DME programming.

If anyone is interested I sold my car and I have a Dinan front bar with the endlinks modded so you can use them and I also have an M Performance v2 exhaust for sale. If interested let me know and we can go from there.

I also have various cosmetic bits and e92 M3 roof rack base bars with rack.

Thanks all for the feedback. One more dumb question: how low can you go on fuel in one of these before fuel starve becomes a concern?

My car went down to fumes on the Hoosiers. Or more accurately - I never fuel starved it despite autocrossing it with < 1 gallon remaining a couple times (that’s about when you get the three bars on the range)

But it’s an 08 I’ve no idea whether there’s a difference on the later cars though I doubt it very much

I've never encountered it either although I've never gone much below 1/8'th by the end of a session. Having watched you in your AS Hoho days, I can't imagine anyone who challenged fuel starve more since we are on ***** *****.

I am conceding the car will sit just a bit higher all around but am willing to accept this for higher functioning units. I suppose only time will tell.
Any updates on how the Bilsteins are working? I'm not looking for new shocks, but I'm not not looking for new shocks either.

I felt the Bilstein B6 EDC fronts were a bit too high pressure for our application and raised the front up at least 2" higher than worn ZCP OEM EDC struts, and probably .8-1" higher than fresh OEM struts, which I felt was less than optimal for our use because they were a just too firm and because of the loss of camber. They have been sold and sent out with new OEM ZCP EDC struts which went in. My old set is at best compromised as are the lower control arms and thrust arms, all of which are being refreshed.

I kept the rear Bilstein B6 EDC units rather than then taking them off. The OEM rears were very shot, and I was left to only conclude the Bilsteins are better.

That said, my new alignment specs have been a bit of a disappointment as I dialed out much of the rear toe in and the car dances a wee bit too much to be confident with the go peddle. Got my butt handed to me by Cashmore this weekend. Kudos to him -- not so much to me. Once everything is in, I'll get it re-aligned and get back into the fray.

That's disappointing. I had a very similar experience on my E46 M3 -- installed Bilstein HDs on all four corners, found the amount they lifted the front of the car unacceptable, and replaced the fronts with Konis while keeping the rears on the car.

Regular street ride handling characteristics were pretty nice. On lowering springs, I could really see where they would work but we can't use lowering springs, so such as it is.

Here are my runs from this weekend. It was great to meet some of you guys.

Made some mistakes on my fast run on day 1, pushing wide in a few of the 90 degree corners, but my time ended up being okay. I drove much better on day 2.
