Couldn't resist installing it. Great weekend project and I am very happy with the sound!

Shoutout to SkiFly01 for the excellent donor exhaust!

Swapped out my red gauge faces with grey! The red ones - while they look fantastic - clashed a bit too much with the extended Fox Red dashboard. I think red would suit a black or grey interior perfectly, or even a non-extended FR.

The grey looks so right, a nod to the E46/E39 Ms.





I also got a new redline overlay to match the 8600 RPM customized tachometer face. Now it's perfect.

I drove it to a cars show at a local mall. On the way home I stopped at a Sunoco.

This Sunoco happened to have a 100 octane pump. I put $20 in 100 octane gas in my half empty tank (roughly 2-3 gallons)

The butt dyno could tell a difference. Not much in noticing performance but the deceleration barks from the exhaust were definitely noticeably louder.

I felt nothing different on the performance front, but the decel bark.

My car usually barks and I kind of hear it burbble on itself once. With this 100 octane it seemed to burrble once then a smaller second burrble.

The only other time this happened was when I used an octane booster, so besides sound for me more octane does nothing.

Yea I was pretty mad at myself when the receipt popped out and I googled a gas station 7min away.

An evening wash. Was hoping to get around to detailing the engine bay this weekend but too much going on and ran out of daylight.

Washed, waxes, garaged. I'm looking forward to the first week of 80 degree weather (down from high 90s/100s) in over a month.

Those look great! Where did you get them from and do you know if they can make a set of grey face gauges for the X5M? Thanks.

This bothered me ENDLESSLY ever since I first saw a M3 cluster over a decade ago. BMW's cheapness in reluctance to make a 8400 RPM redline tachometer is such a small detail that drove me nuts. Thankfully, Venoxy can make whatever you desire and I had mine cut to 8600 based on the tune I am running, and then modified the adjustable redline to match
