trust me tune is coming really soon!!! I'm going with Cobb b/c is it basically dummy proof lol. I've never been one to do performance mods on a car. I always did cosmetics. So after research even though it might not be the most aggressive tune, it is the best tune for me until I get a little more knowledgeable about everything.

Yes it is the 7" unit. and DP and fmic are the BIGGEST, most beneficial, and healthiest supporting mods for this car. (and can be the cheapest compared to the Cobb tuning)

thanks, thats why I went ahead and got it for an aggressive look...the M-sport bumper and M3 rep mouths are to big to be so empty looking.

The 10 hours maybe was and exaggeration lol. It honestly took about 5.5-6ish hours 7pm-2am (and this included about an hour break for lunch a few beer breaks and looking for stuff to cut the plastic with) You are right it took about 30 to take the stock one out and we did this with the bumper on. We took the bumper off so we could have an easier time trimming everything. It took us almost an hour to get the one-time crimpped oem piping off the passenger side. Once we got all the oem piping off it took, everything was pretty much straight forward.
