Nooo, that wasn't clear. Had them sprayed by the body shop, installed them myself. I wish I had the skill and resources to paint myself!

Owner's name is Mason, also has a white E92 M3, and a 5 series wagon. Also used to have a 1M but I think he sold it.

are you at PIR for tracking day in the photo?
What kind of helmet are you using?


I've been to PIR but this was in Dallesport, WA for Autocross.

The helmet is an open face helmet by RaceQuip:

What does "in the before times" refer to? Other than WuFlu, has something changed about driving in Portland?

Yeah, do to COVID. My firm has been working remotely for over a year now, but Portland traffic is basically back to its normal level of fun...

washed after my first HOD event

Washed after my first HOD event last Sat (4/17/2021) with Chris_PDX . I am so lucky, Chris is my coach that day and I learnt a lot from him, Thank you Chris.

Got her washed and took a little bit more time to remove the rubber on the paint. I will definately do a coating before next event and in order to make rubber easy off my car....and also considering a set of 18" wheel and tracking tire....

Dang cool you got the seat time alongside Chris_PDX!!

With the warm weather I grabbed the car out of storage. Had to experiment some to get the DCT better matched with the Dinan 3.62 that was installed by the team at AR Motorsport. Will capture video soon, but dang, the shifts are beautifully matched now!

Ran to New Seasons to stock up after.

Where did you get the Dinan 3.62? I didn't think Dinan makes them anymore.
Between what gears do you really feel it on the butt dyno?

It had been a couple years search to find a Dinan unit honestly given the lack of production. Thankfully though once a candidate had been picked up, working with AR Motorsport, we had Diffsonline verify it was authentic, and do a full rebuild including REM polishing.

Installation was paired along with a bit of a rear-end work, solid subframe inserts, poly diff mounts, Dinan toe-links, camber & toe shim/lockout kits, etc.

The diff is still being broken in, however I'm very much enjoying every moment of it. It's not any one particular gear change that is more fun, but all of them, and the frequency at which I get to change gears, hah. While the change isn't anything that would improve gas mileage, the dip hasn't been too bad, yet. I'll be sure to have more thoughts once I've got these 1200 miles of break-in done, maybe by next year at my rate

Hi E90325M! Likewise
We don't drive these cars for the gas mileage.

Nice, keep us updated. I wonder what it would feel like driving a SC'ed 3.62 LSD.

Depending on which type of charger, you might find that 3.62 to be too much low-end torque!
